Autumn - We are Super!
This term our focus will be around getting to know each other. We will meet a few superheroes along the way including real life heroes in the community.
Spring - Spectacular Scientists
During the Spring term we will be delving into the world of science and inventors. We will venture back in time to the land of the dinosaurs, imagine world without science and think about what life might be like in the future.
Summer - The Day I Went to Sea
In the final term of the year we will be off on an adventure under the sea to meet creatures that live there. We may come across a pirate or two to help us find out about life at sea.
This term we are welcoming dinosaurs into our classroom along with the new year!
We will be learning about different types of dinosaurs, their habitat, what they ate and how they lived. In our classroom we have a dinosaur land where we can recreate archaeological digs and learn facts about dinosaurs. We have also added fact and fiction books to our story corner.

How to grow a dinosaur - Caryl Hart.

How to look after your dinosaur - Jason Cockcroft
Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs - Ian Whybrow

We had a fabulous time at our Brilliant Books event this week, we had a visit from Steve Powell from Worksop Library, enjoying a fabulous story telling session and took part in a variety of exciting activities based around The Rainbow Fish, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We hope our families enjoyed the event as much as we did.

Brilliant Books Play Workshop Handouts
We hope you have all had a great half term break. It is lovely to see all our children again, we are looking forward to the very busy and exciting weeks ahead.
The children enjoyed a super day, dressing up as their favourite Superheroes. They took part in Superhero dancing and painted some super paintings, we blogged about the things the children had enjoyed. They all looked great and had a fun day...
The children in Foundation took part in their first Dadly Challenge of the year. With their families they made a cricket bat and then competed to see who could bat the ball the furthest. Well done to the worthy winner from Sparrow Class who was proud to take home a certificate and trophy.
In PE this week the children moved around various pieces of apparatus, they climbed, travelled over, jumped down and crawled. Each week their confidence, speed and accuracy is improving along with their listening skills.
We had the pleasure this week on Tuesday and Wednesday to meet with our families to share how well the children have settled into Sparrow Class. We look forward to building strong home school links and appreciate the continued support.
This week we have been making our own Superhero badges. We have enjoyed using lots of glitter and after we got the chance to wear our badges as part of role pay. We think our badges look great.
On Thursday during the morning and again in the afternoon we performed the song we had been learning ready for our Harvest Assembly. We were incredibly proud of the children considering it was their first time in an assembly and first time in front of a rather large audience.
We have been enjoying our Adventurers sessions each Wednesday Morning and Afternoon. We have taken part in Story Telling, Arts and Crafts, Rhyme Time and Magic Moves. Take a look at some of the things we have been doing...
Each week we enjoy a French session with Madame Walsh. We learn the names of colours, count in French and much more. It is lots of fun.
In P.E this week we worked on our climbing, balancing and jumping skills. We moved around the hall negotiating various pieces of PE equipment. We are working hard to listen to instructions and are learning to take turns with our friends too.
In our Mathematics sessions this week we have been working on our counting, number recognition and experimenting with symbols and marks to represent the ideas of number.
We have been having lots of fun settling into Sparrow Class, particularly exploring our outdoor area. We have played in the sand, ridden the bikes, climbed, balanced and much more. We love being outdoors!
