Welcome to Wren’s class!
We are a happy, active and inquisitive class of Reception and Year 1 children who love to explore, investigate and learn in practical ways, using and applying our skills both indoors and out.
Spring Term 2017
‘Wrens are busy learning about animals and their habitats. We’ve enjoyed being animal detectives outside, looking for evidence of animal activity. We’ve found all sorts of clues; footprints, burrows and even poo! We’ve talked about micro-habitats and had fun hunting for bugs and small creatures that can live in small places. Our magnifying glasses were a real help!
We’ve also been using non-fiction texts to help us find out about animals around the world and Year 1 have been using indexes to help them find and retrieve information. We’re looking forward to making our own animal information book with some of the facts we’ve gathered.
What a lot of amazing animals God created in his wonderful world! YR children have enjoyed painting some of them and sorting small world animals into groups and using them to act out stories. Great work Wrens!’
Bring your pet to school
As we’re learning about animals at the moment, I’d like to invite the children in Wrens to bring their pet to school. If children and parents would like to be involved, they should speak to Mrs Bisby to arrange a date and time. Animals should be in good health, child friendly, well behaved and accompanied by a parent throughout the visit! Children should be ready to talk to their classmates about their pet and answer questions; this will help enhance our language and communication skills.
