Lilly spent ages making special necklaces for her unicorns.

On Fridays we have sensory play to develop our hand strength. Our occupational therapist gave us lots of great ideas to do this. We have been feeling really rich and posting coins into a piggy bank. We have been using tennis balls with slits in them, to pick up as many marbles as we can in it's mouth - it is very tricky! Some children have been threading shapes and using peg boards. Lots of children have been using scissors to cut in straight lines - it can be very tricky too, but lots of fun!

In changeover class, we made SLIME with Mrs Caughey! It was so much fun....

We did surveys today. Some children wanted to find out people's favourite sweets and some groups wanted to find out people's favourite toys. We used tally marks and our speaking and listening skills to ask different people to take part in the survey, then made graphs.

In Numercay we have been naming 2D and 3D shapes and looking at their properties.

After our work on Guy Fawkes today, we had some time for structured play. Do you recognise anyone?

Look at the fun we had at our party!

We did Halloween activities which included Halloween booklets and cooking. We made spider biscuits, witches hat, buns and spooky jelly...

We had the BEST halloween celebration! Look at our amazing costumes!

Alfie's new friend - "hop!"

We have our first birthday in P4/5. Jake Hughes is 8 next week whilst we are off, so we had a class celebration. Everyone loved it!

In Numeracy, we have been looking at 2D shapes. Today we made some pictures from different 2D shapes. Can you guess what they are?

Music was so much fun with Mr Bell. We learnt new songs and tried different instruments.

Collecting leaves with Mrs Caughey.

We wrote beautiful poems based on the story of "Funnybones". We read them to the class and some people read them to Mrs Yeates- she said she was terrified!!!

Look at us having fun in the playground! We are enjoying playing with our friends in our bubble.

Our sound of the week is "m" and we have been working on the letter formation, sound and action. Some children have been making words from the sounds we have done already. Others have been reading with their adult.

Mr Scates music lessons are so much fun! We love joining in the songs and playing instruments.

We were so GOOD having the flu vaccine today, that everyone got a treat in class. The ladies were SO PROUD of us all....

Our sound of the week is "i" so for our Friday treat we had ice lollies - yum yum!

We love having table top activites when we come into school. It gives us a chance to talk to our friends, settle and have fun before the day begins.

Mrs Yeates, Our principal, came to open our cafe and stayed and had snack with us. She loved the cafe and is going to recommend it to her family and friends. Everyone had a special job and we enjoyed special food.

We loved our special snack time with Mrs Yeates.

Our class role play area is "Bubbles Cafe". We are officially "OPEN". Children act out their feelings about the virus through their play.

We had such fun playing in the Nursery adventure playground!

We are learning to share and play nicely with our friends.

We all have been practising our key words ( words that come up again and again), using Look, cover, spell, check everyday. All of us got them all right.

We had our first virtual assembly today and watched it on our interactive whiteboards. Mrs Yeates and Mrs Kerr did a great job and we even did some singing and praying. It was good we could stay safe in our social bubbles and everyone loved it.

It is Treat day on Friday and today we had pancakes because they start with "p" our sound of the week.

We have been having fun in changeover class with Mrs Caughey and heard a story in a TENT!!!!

In numeracy, some of us have begun to take away using a numberline, some of us are working on days of the week and others are adding. What a busy week!

Our sound of the week is "p". We are learning the action, the song, how to write a small and capital one, as well as find some words that start with it.

Every morning we come in and choose table top activities. This helps us to settle in and gives us time to talk to our friends.

Mr Marshall had us hopping, skipping and jumping in PE this week - we loved it, but it was a bit tricky!

Welcome to P4/5! Mrs Kania-Gunning, Ms Lyons and Miss Anderson have loved working with the children and are looking forward to a happy year.

We have been learning how to do good sitting, good looking, good listening and good talking in our teaching circle. Everyone is doing really well!

We have been busy practising handwashing and keeping safe in our class bubble.

We have been busy, settling, feeling safe at school, talking about our feelings, playing, working and having fun!

We have a new sensory walk that we use in our daily mile. It is fantastic and helps with our movement. We all loved it!

We have started literacy activities and have been happy at work and play.

This week we began school shared break and have healthy snack choices. Today we had toast, fruit, milk or water. Some children tried cheese and crackers. Everyone thought it was yummy!!!

Look at our beautiful display on being in a bubble....

Look at our beautiful display all about us. We have changed so much from being babies, to toddlers and then children. Mrs Kania-Gunning can't believe what cute babies we were!!

We are really enjoying our PE with Mrs Curry. Can you guess what animals we are pretending to be? We think we are doing really well considering we start PE at 8:30 am!!!

We are settling really well at school and love our work and play...

Music with Mr Scates is really fun!
