Welcome To Story Land

with Mrs Pearson, Mr Bringloe, Mrs Hall, Mrs Turner and Mrs Wales

Our Busy Week Commencing 12.9.18

This week we began to learn a story about a boy who got stuck on the moon and who meets an alien.

We think it might have been that alien who landed his rocket in our garden last week!

We imagined what he might look like and created an alien portrait out of collage materials. Please drop in to school to see our alien display in the corridor or look at the examples below.

We have been learning about the planets in our solar system. How many can you name without looking at the picture?

Can you explain to somebody at home what the word 'orbit' means?

Which of these planets has the hottest climate? Which has the coldest? Can you explain why?

In maths this week the Year 1s have been learning to use tens frames to represent numbers. 

Can you quickly say the number each of these tens frame is showing?

You can practise making numbers on this interactive tens square. Click on the link.

We have also been solving problems and proving our answers. Can you explain your answer to this problem.


The Reception children have been reading Goldilocks and the 3 Bears this week. They enjoyed being the characters in the story and retelling it in their own words. They also made porridge to try but, some really didn't like it! Take a look at photos below.

We had lots of fun in the sunshine when the reception children had their first PE lesson with Mr Oldroyd.

Our busy week commencing 5.9.18


Some very strange things happened this week for the Year 1s in Storyland!


First Mrs James sent us this picture she had taken of the moon.

We wondered who had written this message.

How did they end up on the moon?

Why do they need help?

What have they used to create this word?


Later we found this rocket which had landed in the garden. There was nobody inside.


Who had flown it here?

Why had they come to Earth?

Where was the pilot?


We are hoping to find out more about this mystery next week!



In maths, the Year 1s have been sorting objects into sets and explaining their sorting e.g. happy and sad faces, colours, big and small. Can you sort these vehicles? Can you find different ways?






We have been very proud of the way the new reception children have settled into school. Mr Potato head is helping us to learn our class rules.  

He has

  • listening ears and looking eyes which help him learn new things
  • helping hands which are kind to others and are really useful when it is tidy up time! 
  • walking feet so he doesn't bump into his friends or hurt himself
  • quiet voice
