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.
Please find attached the phonics letter following the parent workshop session and the letter formation guidance for parents.
Here are links to articulation and pronunciation sites as well as further explanation of synthetic phonics and the Read Write Inc phonics scheme developed by Ruth Miskin.

This week we have been thinking about patterns; we have been printing patterns in paint, making peg board patterns, threading repeating patterns on bead strings, making shape patterns and today we alternated different fruits to make fruit kebabs. All the children enjoyed eating their kebabs.
It was another wet day at Forest School - but it didn't stop the children from having fun! They made a rope swing, they made LOTS of mud cakes and some went bug hunting. When the rain came down, we went into our shelter and relaxed with a hot chocolate and a biscuit!
Our first cooking activity
Today we had our first cooking activity, I hope the children enjoyed their chocolate chip muffins.
On Monday we all got changed into our PE kit and went to the park to practice balancing and climbing.
