Welcome to the Summer Term!

This term our topic is 'Nature Explorers!'

We will be finding out about different nutrients and food groups and how we keep ourselves healthy. Also, we will be looking at a range of plants and how they grow. We will also be exploring 'Alfred the Great' and why he is so important. 

Marwell Zoo Adventure 2017


We had an amazing, sunny trip to Marwell Zoo on Tuesday. We walked for nearly 6 miles and spotted so many incredible animals. We saw penguins swimming, a snow leopard chilling in the shade, macaques being very cheeky, tiny leaf ants on a huge mission, rhinos munching the grass and many more. We all had our favourite animals that we enjoyed watching and we are going to create poems based on Brian Moses 'I'm walking with my iguana'  later in the week.

Have a look at some of our photos from our beautiful day out!

Alfred the Great!

Why was he so great?

Red Nose Day 2017

What an amazing day we have all had today in Foxhill Class. We enjoyed doing the fun run for the very first time and also love helped Donnington class to complete their obstacle course. We have learnt so much about how our money can help people in other countries and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!


World book day 2017

We had lots of fun dressing up for World book day!

We enjoyed making Welsh cakes using Miss Foster's mums special recipe! They were delicious!

Huntley and Palmers

We have been looking closely at Huntley and Palmers and thinking about the different biscuits that they use to make. We went to Reading Town Museum to learn about the business and how it changed Reading. Also we got to look at lots of different Huntley and Palmer's biscuit tins!


We have designed and made our own biscuit tins and have a  designed our own biscuits which we are going to make next week. We can't wait!

We have even made a jingle for our biscuits too!

We have been looking at pictures by Van Gogh and have replicated his pieces using different materials. We have used crayons, paint and cotton wool buds. Here are some examples of the pictures that we have created. 

The rest of the pictures are on display outside of the classroom. Please come and have a look at these amazing pieces!
