The class that loves to learn

Monthly Archives: February 2014

The witch came back tonight to check out all the writing they had done. I think she was excited to find out what their potions did. Hopefully she is making mud out of thin air somewhere far away from school.


Today Mr Bawa taught us a new song about a witch. He must have checked out our blog to know we have been learning about a witch. What a clever man Mr Bawa is!


Check out the amazing radio show. Who did we celebrate this week?

Last night we had a visitor who came and took the children’s potions. She had a major problem. She didn’t know what they did. Check out the video.

After watching the video and reading the letter the children went straight to the writing table to write what their potions did.


This week we will be learning about different coins. Which coins can you find around your house? Take a picture of the coins and send it in. Also can you take a picture of yourself buying something in a shop? 1 Housepoint for every picture.


We have had such a great first week. We have been making potions and writing spells. We also learnt about counting on from a given number. The children have loved reading the ‘Room on the Broom’.

We have recapped the following sounds in Phonics; ur and er. Can you think of any words that have these sounds?

Next week we will be looking at another Julia Donaldson book. Check out the video below to see which book we are doing?

In numeracy we will be learning about money. We will be looking at different coins and looking at where we use money, Next week we would like the children to bring in 50p so that we can go to the local fruit shop and experience spending money and receiving change.

Have a super weekend my little superstars!
