Current topic – How Wow!



We have had another lovely week!

Our ‘How? Wow!’ topic is turning out to be the Sparrows’ favourite topic so far! We have made gloop and looked at materials that dissolve, learned how play dough was invented and much more.

Next week we have an ICE Cats session. The Sparrows will learn how to keep themselves and others safe duing time at school and when at home.

Homework has been set in the portfolio section of Class Dojo.

Have a great weekend!



What a wonderful week! The children have enjoyed learning about We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and even made a narrow and gloomy cave of their own. We have also been practising counting and writing numbers in our Maths lessons, it was so much fun!

Next week our topic changes to How Wow! We will be learning about how things work, how play dough was invented and much more. It will be an exciting week full of exploring, investigating and discussing what we have found.

There are a few jumpers and cardigans left in class with no names on. If one of them belongs to your child, please tell the staff on the door next week. Thanks you.

Have a fantastic weekend!




We have had lots of fun so far this week. The Sparrows have enjoyed acting out We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We even added some musical instruments to make the swirling whirling snowstorm and other excitng noises from the story!




We have had a lovely week of learning and playing. We have learned about our senses and how they work, that we were born in the past and particularly enjoyed learning about everyone’s families.

Reading books will be sent home on Monday. Please ensure that it is sent in daily with your child’s reading record.

Next week we continue our topic of Magical Me, we wil be looking at our school from an aerial view and looking at how we have changed from the past. Thank you for sending in baby pictures, these will be returned next week.

We have a few jumpers/cardigans in class without names in. If your child has not took theirs home today, please let us know on Monday.

Have a fantastic weekend,

Mrs McGlory



“Being a Sparrow is so much fun!”
