Welcome to the Inkpen Class page!
Our Class Teacher is Miss Gilbert and our Teaching Assistant is called Miss Mountney.
We have thought about a few festivals for this half term.
We celebrated Diwali and learnt about the story of Rama and Sita. This is the festival of lights because the diwas (small clay pots of oil that light up) helped Rama and Sita to find their way home.
Christmas is almost here!
We are getting into the party spirit by thinking about Christmas and what this means. We know the story of Jesus and his birth and have identified parts of this story and retold it.
We have also had a party where we had a very special visit from a very special guest!
After the Christmas holidays, we spent some time thinking about Winter and cold places.
We made an Igloo using sugar cubes and then using real snow!
We did lots of measuring and thought about height, weight, length and capacity.
We have also thought about Traditional Tales and have investigated the Three Billy Goats Gruff and Jack and the Beanstalk.
We have also been learning about growing and know that some plants grow from seeds and from bulbs. We have all planted a bean in a bag and have looked for the roots and shoots, then when they are big enough we have planted them outside.
We have also made models of flowers! Here are a few...
Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.
"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
