Welcome to Blenheim Class!

On World Book Day we worked with our Year 5 Cross Phase Partners on activities linked to books.  We decorated our classroom door and enjoyed sharing stories together.  

We had a brilliant afternoon watching the play 'A New Coat for Christmas' at Reading Rep.

We had a great time at our Christmas Party - Blenheim Class are fantastic dancers! We played 'Rudolph Says...', the Christmas Hoop game, Musical Statues and Frozen Reindeer. We enjoyed decorating and eating our special Christmas biscuits, and we even got to meet a very important visitor and sing to him.

We have really enjoyed performing our Christmas play 'Jesus' Christmas Party' with Year 2.

Here are some photos of our super soloists, amazing animals, terrific travellers to Bethlehem and marvellous musicians.

Well done Blenheim Class!

We will be going to see the play 'A New Coat for Christmas' at Reading Rep at the end of term. Annie from Reading Rep came to Redlands and did a fantastic drama session with us to help us explore the story. Here are a few photos of what we did. We can't wait to see the play!

On Wednesday 7th November the author and illustrator Simon Murray came to visit us. He taught us to draw one of his characters, Icky Doo Dah. You can see our amazing illustrations on display in the classroom!

On Friday 5th October, we celebrated Harvest.

It was a very special day.

To prepare , on Thursday, we made houmous and veg to share with the other classes. We used chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice and a little salt. Then we chopped up peppers and cucumber.

Then, we tasted the delicious foods that the other classes made.

We all tried to taste new things and Miss Corner was very proud.

What was your new favourite food you tasted?

We have had a busy start to Year 1.

We've had fun learning lots of playground games: Follow the Leader; Sticky Toffee 123; Grandma's Footsteps; Duck, Duck, Goose; What's the Time Mr Wolf?; Bounce Tag; Frost and Thaw; the rope colour game.

What would you like to play next playtime? 

We have also worked well together to play parachute games.
