Welcome to the Inkpen Class page!
Our Class Teacher is Miss Gilbert and our Teaching Assistant is called Miss Mountney.
We have been learning about people who help us and have had visits from a postman, the firefighters, a scientist and the bin lorry!
The have told us all what they do for their job and how they help people. It was very interesting to learn about everything.
At the beginning of the term we started to learn about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night. We know that he tried to blow up the houses of parliament and that he was captured and taken to jail! We had the opportunity to act out the story and pretend to play one of the characters in the Gunpowder Plot!
We have been enjoying the run up to Christmas with lots of different activities. We have held a singing event in the hall for all of our special adults! We have also opened our doors to our parents and invited them to make a decoration with us. We made beautiful candy canes, sparkly baulbauls and crackers and salt-dough decorations.
We have also thought about the first Christmas and the Nativity story. We know that Baby Jesus was born on Christmas day and he was given Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh as gifts from the wise men.
We have been learning about near and far away places that are cold. We have investigated our own country during the Winter and have thought about the North Pole and how cold it is there.
We learnt how to draw polar bears using a step-by-step guide. We had to use shapes to represent different body parts. We have shown that we are all super artists!
Up, Up and Away!
We have learned a lot about things that are up in the air!
We have made some super clay aeroplanes that look as if they are floating on a cloud! We then also made some paper planes and kites AND had a lovely dance lesson based on kites! We all had so much fun.
We have pretended to go on an aeroplane and watched the safety video as well as a simulator to show us what it looks like inside a plane.
We have enjoyed watching the Theatre Group who came to talk to us about minibeasts.
We have been learning about life cycles and have looked at caterpillars and butterflies. We have thought about the processes that they go through to change from a caterpillar into a butterfly.
We also celebrated world book day and dressed up as some of our favourite characters from our favourite stories! Can you guess who we are?
We have been thinking about the Summer and noticing the changes that happen during the warmer weather.
We have investigated some mini-beasts and looked after our own butterflies. We watched as they changed from small caterpillars into cocoons and then into butterflies that we let go out on our field.
We had a super time at the farm and got the opportunity to do lots of amazing things! We enjoyed feeding the lambs with their bottles and grooming the pony.
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!"
