Last term we were learning all about famous landmarks around the world.  This term Mrs Bartlett has a challenge!

This afternoon we've been learning about what plants need to survive.  We planted our own seeds to grow a beanstalk and designed a castle for the top... Be sure to ask us how they're getting on over the next couple of weeks!



We have been learning a new skill at Beoley this term.  World Champion Trompo players have been trainin us for a competition & we're doing very well!

Outdoor Learning

We have been getting very muddy and eating lots of yummy treats this half-term!  We are expert camp-fire dwellers & love to feel its warmth after a long trek.

In reception we have been practising writing our name writing, counting to 20 and reading using our phonics this term - we're really impressing Mrs Bartlett!



The Great Fire of London


We built a replica of Pudding Lane in class and Mrs Bartlett took us outside so that we could see how quickly the fire wuld have spread through the houses.

Even though we had read all about it & watched a video from Magic Grandpa we were amazed by how quickly the fire spread! 



We have been so busy recently!  We are loving exploring our new topic 'The Farm' & think Mrs Bartlett's book choice has been fantastic!

We have also read a couple of the other titles in this series - we are definitely Supertato fans!


We have been learning about fruits and vegetables that grow in our gardens, our farms and in different areas around the world. 


In our school garden we found, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins and sweetcorn growing!

Yesterday, we had lots of fun exploring (chocolatey) poo.  Mrs Bartlett had received the poo (porridge oats, cocoa powder and few added bits) along with a letter requesting our help!  We were asked to help the scientists label the poo as coming from a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore.  Mrs Bartlett was very impressed with our deductions!  Here are a few pictures of our investiagtion.

Look what we've been doing!


Body mapping 640x480


We've been learning about our bodies.  We labelled all of the parts of the body and added any organs or bones that we knew.  Some of us knew where our kidneys were, our skull and even our spine.

In our outdoor learning we have been designing leaf accessories and learning which trees we have in school.  We have also been sawing from a log (watch this space for Christmas gifts!) and hammering on leaves to leave a print on our card.  We have really enjoyed these jobs!
