KS1 have been learning about why we celebrate Bonfire Night and the history behind it. We had a lovely afternoon learning about how to be safe around fire / fireworks and drank hot chocolate with marshmallows. 

Father Kieron came in to talk to KS1 about the Baptism. The children were very excited to see what would happen at a Baptism service and learnt about the different signs and symbols used in the Baptism.

Marvellous Me

KS1 have been busy celebrating their own identities and what makes them unique and different. We have been exploring favourite foods, games, colours etc. Children have been looking at how we have grown up and changed since we were little. We have also unpicked why it is important to eat healthy and made fruit kebabs, biscuit self-portraits and painted a self-portrait. We had a KS1 party where parents and family members were invited in to play party games with the children as a celebration of their uniqueness and individuality.

We have had a great start to the term with the class having lots of opportunities for the class to explore their learning environment and make it their own. Children can take it in turns to choose toys to put in the outdoor area in the mornings and have a chance to learn through play in Year 1. Year 2 then have a more structured approach to learning in the mornings with play-based activities in the afternoons.








Key Stage 1 had a very exciting school trip to the Sealife Centre and the i360 this term. The children enjoyed walking along the seafront, having lunch on the beach and playing in the park.

Key Stage 1 had a visit from a fishermen to show them how he catches fish and has to cut them up-ready to sell for food. They were very brave!!

St Elizabeth have been busy exploring different mark-making and lines that can be used in art. They have explored cross-curricular subjects such as RE and Science within an art lesson and have some great viewpoints on the creation story.

Happy Easter!!

St Elizabeth's learning environment:

St Elizabeth's have been exploring dinosaurs this term and have discovered some exciting facts! We have been busy making dinosaur habitats and even had a science project involving an erupting volcano! 

The children have been learning about how the world began and have explored this through artistic mediums. Children have looked at the creation story in the Bible and have also researched dinosaurs and how the world has changed. 

Our Reptile Day: KS1 had a visit from lots of different animals and learnt about different types of animals and their habitats. The children were very brave!!

Year 1 and 2 had a special visit this week from the fire brigade. They learnt about fire safety, how to stay safe around the home e.g. not touching hot drinks and played some games. We are waiting for our second visit where they can go on the fire engine.

KS1 have been working so hard on their Nativity! Thank you to everyone who helped out - the costumes and set look brilliant.

Year 1 and 2 have been getting arty by making lovely Christmas decorations out of lolly sticks. The children had to research ideas for our Christmas fayre for their homework.


The children had lots of fun in St Elizabeth's class and spent some of their afternoon making Pudsey money boxes for Children in Need.


Our Suns have been exploring road safety during their 'scooter training' sessions. They have been able to bring their scooters into school and practice scooter safety in the playground and outside of school on the pavement. Alongside this, our Moons have also been learning about road safety in their 'pedestrian training' sessions.



Our Moons have been busy sorting numbers from 0-20 using different resources whilst our suns have been working hard to solve missing number sequences of up to 100.

PE Kits

We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays, please make sure children have their full PE kit especially plimsoles/trainers that are the correct size. Some children have also been mislaying their PE kit so please ensure all clothing is named.



Homework is given out every Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. If there are any problems or questions with the homework please speak to the teacher.


Children will receive weekly spellings, maths or literacy.



Children are expected to read regularly at home and for this to be recorded in their yellow reading records. The teacher will record and comment in the reading record each week during guided reading and when reading 1:1 with the children. In year 2 children are encouraged to change their reading books independently and when needed from the class reading area.
