Spring 1

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to coming back to school. This half term our class topic is Ancient Egypt!

 

Week 1

Wow! What a whirlwind of a week it has been. I would just like to personally thank all the children and their families of Tiger Lily Class for getting on board with the new way of learning. We have started our Ancient Egypt topic and written some amazing biographies. We have also mastered negative numbers in Maths. Just a reminder for those in school that PE is Monday and Forest Schools will resume on Thursdays. Please make sure children are appropriately equipped for these as the weather is very cold and wet at the moment. Thanks, Miss Taylor. 

 Well done to our golden book winners Zak and Layton!

 

Week 2

We have had a lovely week in Tiger Lily class again. The children who are home learning are really getting into the rhythm of things now and are submitting some amazing work! We have started to look at our class novel 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and perfecting our skills when it comes to fractions. Thanks to all the children in our class who have been superb all week again. 

Our golden book winners this week are Filip and Jake. Well done!

 

Week 3 

We have had another lovely week in Tiger Lily class. We have carried on with our class novel 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and looking at how body language can tell others how we are feeling. We have come to the end of looking at fractions in Maths. Our favourite part of the week this week was forest schools where we made our own map of our school on the playground with sticks! 

This week our golden book winners are Sky and Bradley.

 

Week 4

In Tiger Lily Class we have had another smashing week. We even had a snow day! Can you guess who made the biggest snowman? All of the children are doing a super job and I can’t believe how amazing some of the work I’m receiving is! Please can children who are in school bring a newspaper and a kitchen roll tube by Monday for our DT project. Thank you!

 

This week our golden book winners are Lily Ella and Declan. Our handwriting superstar is Bradley!

 

Week 5

Wow, what a strange yet wonderful half term it has been. We have finished our Ancient Egypt topic and made our own Egyptian death masks. They look absolutely amazing and took a lot of hard work and elbow grease. We had a fantastic day at forest schools this we, we conducted an experiment where we made water filters and saw which groups would make the dirty water the clearest, it was so interesting and we really enjoyed. I would like to that all of the children for working so hard this half term and being so resilient even when times have been tricky. I can’t wait for the day when we are ALL back in the same classroom together. Have a lovely half term and enjoy some well deserved rest.

Week 6 - What a lovely week we've had in Tiger Lily class, we are getting so close to Christmas! We have been practising '12 days of Christmas' and getting into the Christmas spirit. We have enjoyed writing a letter to Albert who lost his dog and have been looking at shape in Maths! 

Our stars of the week are Layton and Pedro!

 

Week 5 - The Christmas trimmings are up and Elfie the naughty elf is back!! He is causing all sorts of mischief. We have been looking at our Christmas story 'The Polar Express'. We have also had more new arrivals in our class... the fish have reproduced AGAIN! 

Well done to our stars of the week Jade and Charlie!

 

Week 4 - The Christmas spirit is starting to creep into Tiger Lily class. I am beginning to hear children humming Christmas tunes while they are doing their work! We are all wondering if the naughty elf will visit us again this year... We are also looking forward to the sponsored Reindeer Run on the 9th December. A big shout out to Alex this week who got 100/100 on his times table challenge!

Well done to our stars of the week Jake and Tyla!

 

Week 3 -  This week we have spent lots of time looking out our class novel 'The Great Kapok Tree' by Lynne Cherry. We have written our own versions of the story and even made our own story books! We have also looked at our new online learning platform EdShed where children can practise their maths and spellings. The children have their own personal log ins that have been sent home. Congratulations to Filip and Bradley who have reached 100/100 on the TT challenge! Just a quick note to say we are NOT doing Forest Schools this half term so children need to come to school in full uniform every day. Please send your child with a warm coat every day as the weather starts to get colder. 

Well done to our stars of the week Maisie-Leigh and Lilly C!

 

Week 2 - It has been lovely to be back learning in the classroom. We are finding our new rainforest topic very interesting! We have learnt all about orangutans and palm oil. Ask your children why palm oil is causing the Orangutans to become extinct. We have also had two new arrivals. Our class fish has had two babies. (Fish babies are called fry). This week has been lovely and Miss Taylor is so proud of us as always.

This week our stars of the week are Zak and Rosie!

 

Week 1 -   Wow, what a strange week it has been for Tiger Lily class! This week we have been doing all of our learning from home. The children have adapted to this change exceptionally and I am so proud of all of them. The children have taken responsibility for their own learning and taken everything in their stride. A huge well done to Tiger Lily class and I can't wait to see you all back in the classroom on Monday! Please bring any home learning you have completed and your homework books. 

This week our stars of the week are Charlie and Oliva-Rose!

Autumn 1

Welcome back to school - take a look at our classroom!

I hope you are all as excited as I am to get back to school! I have been working hard over the summer to make sure that the classroom is ready for your return. I have lots of great things planned for us to do together this year. Here are some important days for you to remember:

On Monday afternoon we will have our PE lesson, please bring your full PE kit.

On Thursdays we have forest schools ALL morning, so make sure you are wearing appropriate clothing and shoes. We will be going out whatever the weather!

At the moment swimming isn't taking place, more information is to come about this!

Please make sure your children bring their school water bottles if they brought these home over the summer. As well as this please bring book bags!

Thanks for your continued support, 

Miss Taylor.
