A very busy week

We have been working really hard in KS1! In Forest School we have been making number sentences, helping light the fire and learning all about how to keep safe outdoors. In class we have been making number bonds to 10 and been learning tricky words by using the truck to move the word stones. Reception also had the opportunity to come into KS1 and use some of our computers! Look out for their work, it should be on the website very soon!

 

Christmas Cards

The Owls and the Swifts have been using the Ipads to design and create their own QR Christmas cards. You can scan the images to reveal a Christmas message! The Year 1 and 2 children had the chance to show the Owls how to use the app on the Ipad.
