St John's

Church of England Infant School

A small school with a big heart, a great place to grow.





Term 5

What have we been learning about this term?

In English this term we have focused on the text 'The Robot and the Bluebird', the children have really enjoyed this story which focuses on a Robots journey to happiness. The children have produced some great work based on this book, they have written Bluebird fact files, created some fantastic story maps and even hot seated as the Robot! All of the children have become more confident writing independently and have made good progress in their phonic lessons.


In maths this term we have continued with number revision to ensure that there are no gaps in the children's learning. Miss Horgan has been working hard with some children on their number formation! We revised place value and I was impressed with how many children remembered how to use dienes in their maths lessons. As a class, we have been learning all about multiplication and division and using different manipulatives to help us solve problems. 


In topic this term we have been learning all about plants! The children have labelled their own plants, drew their own garden and even planted their own sunflowers, which we look forward to seeing at the end of term 6! 





What else happened this Term?


St John's Church has reopened this term after a very exciting refurbishment! All of the classes walked down to the church for a whole school worship which was led by Martin and Luke. All of the children had a great time singing some songs and even got a chance to explore the church and learn so new words! 

The school has been lucky enough to receive some Amazon Fire tablets, which the children have enjoyed exploring. Every Tuesday afternoon Squirrel Class have been taking part in music lessons, learning all about beat and rhythm. Overall, we have had a great term!!!
