Thank you to each and every one of you for our wonderful gifts. We all hope you had a lovely Christmas break and wish you and your family a Happy New Year; we look forward to 2019.
2018 ended with the children working very hard, showing great Sapphire power at all times, in what was a busy last few months of the year. I am sure you would all agree what a great assembly they had and how well they performed. Then a few weeks later they gave an amazing, eye watering performance with their gift to you- the nativity play. Again they did an amazing job.
This term we are focusing on the following:
Science. Materials - what are things made of?
English. Claude in the City
PE will take place on Wednesday and Thursday this term and we will be doing Dance!
As always, if you need us, our door is always open and we look forward to the term ahead.

Wow, what a great term we have all had! The children have come in to school every day with such positive and great attitudes that they have learnt so much in their first term as Year one pupils.
Year One were lucky to enjoy our Forest School lesson every Thursday and the weather was on our side so that we were all able to get out and do some planting, hunting, toasting marshmallows and much, much more – parents, please take a look at our forest school book to see all the things the children did.
We also had a great morning of learning all about Fencing; we were so grateful to Mrs Courtney’s son for coming in to show the children how to do it and they all got to have a go. (See the great pictures below)
In English we have been learning about Zeraffa Giraffa. The children have been re telling the story through story maps and have done some great writing about this story which you can see on our display board.
In R.E we have been learning about Psalms in the bible and talking about creation. We have also looked at Judaism and we were lucky to have a special visitor from the synagogue in Bristol. She told us all about her faith and things that are special to her and her family and she also taught us a song!
In Maths we have been looking at number sequences, counting in twos and fives and also recognising our numbers. We have also been looking at more than, equal to, less than and learning to add using Numicon.
We went on a visit to The Pound, not once, but twice- first was to see a movie as a thank you for a great Section 48 inspection and another time was during Corsham Storytown week when we were lucky enough to be invited to listen to a story.
Thank you if you have signed up tofor parents' evening; if you haven’t yet, the forms to choose your time slot are at the front of the school.
As always Mrs Sykes and Mrs Solomon are always here- as we say, our door is always open, should you need to speak with us. PE for this term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure all children have the correct school PE kit in school.
We look forward to another exciting term in term 2.
