Our Classroom


International Arts and Diversity Week

Reception have been enjoying their tennis lessons with Luke, the local tennis coach. They have been learning how to hold a tennis racket and how to control the ball. 

The children studied the Lebanese artist Etel Adnan and her abstract landscape artwork. They enjoyed painting and using collage to recreate some of her art. 

Come and Play

Outdoor time

Thank you to all of the parents and carers who came to visit the children in EYFS. It was wonderful for the children to show their grown-ups what they do during their days at school. 

The children have been thoroughly enjoying the beautiful weather by spending their playtimes in the field. Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2 have been playing together and this has prepared them for their transitions. 

The King's Coronation

The Billy Goats Gruff

The children in EYFS have celebrated King Charles III's Coronation by creating artwork for the Askwith Phone Box, making flags, bunting, crowns and their own personalised stamps. Their artwork will be displayed in the upcoming Creativity Exhibition. 

Our traditional tale focus for Summer 1 is The Billy Goats Gruff. The children have been building their own scenery and they have focused on the two meadows, the bridge and the stream. 

Local Area - Maps

Singing with Mr Morgan

Reception practised using their map reading skills to go on a 'treasure hunt' around the EYFS playground. They worked as teams to look for familiar features on the map and to find the hidden 'treasure' as quickly as possible. 

Nursery and Reception have been enjoying singing lessons with Mr Morgan. They have learnt three songs in just three weeks! 

DT Challenge

World Book Day 

The children in EYFS thoroughly enjoyed viewing the amazing models built by the children in school for the DT challenge. 

World Book Day was wonderful! All of the children in EYFS had made such a huge effort and they looked fantastic dressed as their favourite characters. The staff had lots of fun too! 

Primary Colours

Fire fighters

The children have been learning about the primary colours. Nursery enjoyed finding red, yellow and blue items around the room to sort. Reception have been creating beatiful pieces of artwork inspired by Mondrian. 

We were so pleased to welcome the fire fighters into school. The children particularly enjoyed trying on the equipment and listening to the extremely loud siren! 


Police Visit

Nursery have been using playdough in their imaginative play. They have made monsters, food and they have explored how different objects can make a range of patterns in the playdough. 

The police came in to school to talk about being safe. It was very interesting and the children enjoyed asking lots of questions. 

Reception and KS1 Nativity

Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas Art

The children in Reception had a fantastic time singing in the Christmas Nativity. Their performances were outstanding! 

Everyone looked very festive in their Christmas jumpers! The children also enjoyed making Christmas themed artwork using sponges to print. 

Reading for Pleasure

Harvest Assembly

Class 1 are enjoying daily reading for pleasure sessions. 

Harvest community phone box

Reception, Year 1 and 2 performed their Harvest Assembly to parents, grandparents and carers this week. They did a wonderful job and their singing was beautiful! 

Maths provision - number

The children really enjoyed creating harvest and autumn artwork for the community phone box in Askwith. They loved creating patterns by printing using bubble wrap!

Reception have been representing numbers up to five and have been practising outdoors. They were finding objects to show each number. 

Diwali - Diva Lamps

Technology - Beebots

The children have been using playdough to create Diva lamps for Diwali. They made a pinch pot by rolling the playdough into a ball, then pinching the sides to make a pot. The children then created their own patterns in the playdough Diva lamps using a variety of tools. The best tool was a PVA glue spreader! 

Class 1 have been exploring how instructions need to be clear and precise for a computer or a Beebot to understand them. We had fun finding different parts of the map outside and giving each other instructions. 

Poet visitor

Science - The weather in autumn

The children in class 1 thoroughly enjoyed the poet visitor. They sang along with songs to the tune of his guitar, made up stories with puppets and explored rhyming words.

The children have been investigating the weather in autumn. They have become weather watchers and have recorded the weather each day, along with what they would wear to stay warm and dry.

DT - modelling

Day of European Languages

Class 1 enjoyed designing and creating their own models using recycled materials. They explored the different ways to join materials using glue, sellotape and staples. 

Fine motor practice

The children had a wonderful time learning some phrases in German with our Swiss student, Alex. 

Meeting Julia Donaldson

Nursery and Reception are developing their fine motor skills during provision time.

The children in EYFS and KS1 had the pleasure of watching Julia Donaldson read her new book - The Baddies. During the Zoom call, Alex Scheffler showed the children the process behind drawing his unique and recognisable illustrations. 

Show and Tell


The children in Class 1 love to share with each other important items and events during Show and Tell time. 

We have painted our self-portraits and we carefully thought about the colour of our eyes, the shape of our face and our hair colour. 



The children in Class 1 have been exploring mathematical concepts in a variety of ways. They have many opportunities to use their new knowledge independently during provision time. 

The children love exploring the outdoor area to support the development of their gross motor skills, to build relationships with their peers and to investigate the elements around them. 

The Four Rs in Class 1

In Class 1, we are resilient, responsible, robust and respectful.
