Welcome to Buccaneers!
In our class we have 18 children in Foundation Stage plus 9 children in Year 1. Our teacher is Mrs Winter; our main teaching assistant is Mrs Johnson, though we also have support from Miss Hill. On Monday afternoons we have Forest School with Mrs Rae. Please look about on this page to see what we have been doing!
Adults in our class update
Mrs Winter is currently absent following hip replacement surgery; during this time Mrs Sinclair will be teaching and leading the class. Mrs Winter and Mrs Sinclair are working together to ensure continuity for the children. Please come and talk to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs Johnson is enrolled on a two year course of study to become a teacher. As part of her course she is required to gain experience in a range of schools and settings as well as taking some responsibility for planning and teaching.
Red Nose Disco
Our school captains wanted to organise a disco to support Comic Relief. It was organised almost entirely by these four children and they did a great job with their music choices and DJing. Well done!
On Friday Class 1 had their sharing assembly, telling the story of Jack and the beanstalk and singing a song about how plants grow. After the assembly parents joined us in the classroom to make models of plants, children then added labels to the plant parts.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported us and took part.
World Book Day
After an exciting dance session based around either Where the Wild Things Are or The BFG, we enjoyed a week of work around these themes, culminating in dressing up as book characters. The costumes were simply amazing!
Well done to everyone (including adults) for all of your thought and hard work.
We all thoroughly enjoyed this week.
Where the Wild Things are
On Monday Class 1 enjoyed an amazing dance workshop, led by West End Dance, exploring and adding actions to our story, Where the Wild Things are. As our focus for World Book Week children have been drawing story maps, creating their own Wild Thing characters, preparing themed healthy snacks and making dream catchers. We have all had fun getting into character as well as thinking about how the characters felt in different parts of the story.
Book Week Dance Workshops
We all had great fun in our dance workshops based on "Where the Wild Things Are" and "The BFG". Thank you very much to the School Association for paying for them!
