Term 6

We have been busy learning about 2D and 3D and making models using these shapes!

Term 5

Term 5 has been a quick one but we have packed in many exciting opportunities!


This term we have focused on the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We were very excited to of found a letter from the hungry caterpillar saying that he was somewhere within the school. We became great detectives and managed to solve all the clues to find where he was hiding. Amazingly, at the end we found not one caterpillar but a whole group of them. We have ensured that we take great care looking after them and have really enjoyed watching them grow and change into butterflies.


In Numeracy this term we have focused on making numbers to 10, we have become rather good at this so make sure you challenge us to some at home!


Finally, we all really enjoyed our trip to Folly Farm, even the weather couldn’t ruin it for us!

Term 4

We have had a very exciting start to Term 4 in spider class, our Term started with a hunt for the gingerbread man! We looked all over the school for him only to find when we got back to our classroom that the fox had eaten him, as there were crumbs everywhere. He did however leave a special book for us to get busy with doing some special writing.


We have been working hard in numeracy this term and have been learning how to subtract, ask us how we solve these problems.


We have been looking at all things that are spring and really enjoyed paying a visit to year 5 to see the new born chicks, we had to be really quiet to make sure we didn’t scare them.


We can’t wait to see what the rest of the term brings us.

Term 3

Term 3 has flown by and we have been getting up to so much in Spider Class …


We had a shock at the beginning of Term when we found out that the Evil sock had stolen all of our Lego. We have spent all term training as superheroes. We have been talking about what makes us healthy and strong and even completed a superhero training course, just in case we came across the Evil Sock. Luckily we have managed to get our Lego and with an apology from the Evil sock promising never to do it again.


We have been working hard this term and our reading and writing is coming on in leaps and bounds, make sure you check it out!


We enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year and had great fun celebrating this event across the environment.

Term 2

Wow, the time has flown by and we are now in Term 2!

Since coming back to school, we have had fun learning the story ‘we are going on a bear hunt’. Ask your child if they can tell you the story.


We have been working hard on learning our new sounds in phonics and have been good at practising writing our letters during learning time. We were very excited to start reading our new books!


We enjoyed learning all about bonfire night and had great fun making our own fireworks across the environment.


We can’t wait to see what we get up to for the rest of the term.

Term 1

Welcome to Spider Class, our little spiders have had a very busy start to the term!

Since starting school, we have had fun exploring the environment and have made many new friends!


We have been working hard on our counting skills and recognising the numbers in our environment. We have enjoyed exploring and playing with the Numicon, we have become very good at recognising the different shapes and colours.


We enjoyed going on a listening walk to hear the different sounds in our school. We have loved using different instruments to explore different beats and pitches of sound!
