We hope all the fathers in moon class had a lovely day!


We loved stroking the animals and feeding them.

Wow! What a busy half term we have had!

The children have shown many interests such as watering plants, snails, people who help us and the Royal Wedding. From this we have planned many activities so support their interests:-

Talking about Spring- children have planted their own sun flower seeds and we talked about what plants need to grow

Learning about mini beasts- children have made a snail house, a worm house and we are growing butterflies. Hopefully they stay in their chrysalis until we return back to school so we can see them develop into butterflies. 

Talking about the Royal Wedding- the children learnt about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. We talked about Britain, where they will be getting married, the dress and the cake. The children then designed their own pictures of the cake and dress and made some cards for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to say Congratulations. I have sent these off to them so hopefully they will reply shortly. We even learnt how to do a Waltz ( the first slow dance at a wedding). 

People who help us- First the police came in to talk to us about their job. After that the children have been interested with other people who help us and have been asking questions e.g. the vet. fire fighters, doctors. 

Carrying on with fairy tales- children have been acting out the stories and making their own castles out of junk modelling. 


Have a great break and see you all on the 4th June.

It was out first SPORTS DAY and WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!


Welldone Moyosola's mum for joining in on the long jump! I managed to get a great photo.

Thankyou parents who came along to support and cheer on their child and everyone else, it was great to see you there!

We have LOVED learning about the author Julia Donaldson!

We enjoyed our trip to discover and had fun 'jumping into all of her books'

Thankyou parents who came along to make this trip happen.


We had a competition: create a story box of one of Julia Donaldson's books.

Thankyou Oliver, Raheem, Mohamed, Pembegul, Chloe, Freddie, Frankie, Jaden, Sophie, Charlie, and Sofia for participating. All your boxes were amazing and I couldn't choose a winner! I loved them all so much!

An external judge came and had a tough choice but they managed to find a winner and runner up. 

The winner was Sophie and Runner Up was Charlie. Welldone guys!

I hope you ALL loved your prizes. 


We have been focusing on fairy tales/traditional stories for the past couple of weeks. They have been writing their own stories about the fairy tales and we have been making them into laminated books so other children can read them.


We will be carrying on with this as the children love it! Please read some fairy tale stories at home to your children; Cinderella, Rapunzel, Princess and the Pea, Snow White, The Three Little Pigs, 3 Billy Goats Gruff, The Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood etc... 


If you don’t have these fairy tales books, you can go to the library or search them up on google


We hope you had a good half term break. 

Our parent workshops will be starting up again this Friday (27.04.18) please sign up to one. 




The children this week have decided to make a fashion show- they made the display, they chose their outfits and made up their own pose! 

They loved writing about it! 

We even had the children pretending to be photographers where they used the teachers cameras to take the photos of the fashion show. 

Week beginning: 5.3.18

The children this week have been doing something secret where they cannot tell you yet, we hope you like your surprise on Sunday mummies.

Have a lovely Mothers Day!

Although we didn’t go through a swirling whirling snowstorm on our bear hunt.

We had a swirling whirling snowstorm in Bellingham!

We couldn’t go over,

We couldn’t go under it,
We couldn’t go around it,

So we went through it and had so much FUN!!

Week beginning: 19.2.18

We went on a Bear Hunt
We caught a big one
It was a beautiful day!
We were not scared.

We then saw one wet shiny nose,
two big furry ears,
two big googly eyes
we found a BEAR!

We thought it was a nice happy friendly bear who felt lonely so we all gave it a BIG HUG and took it back through the forest, stumble trip… back through the river, splash splosh… back through the mud, squelch squerch... back through the grass, swishy swashy and back to the Horton Kirby Classroom.

We had a lovely video of all of moon class children giving the bear a hug but the video size was too big to upload

Life skills:
We have been learning about money and the different coins we can use this week.

Some of moon class went to the supermarket to buy some fruit for us to make our own fruit salad.
We bought apples, bananas, tangerines, a pineapple, pomegranate and a melon.
We paid with: 1 pound, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p coins.


We then got to chop the fruit into small chunks using a knife and add it to our fruit salad.
The children were super at cutting and they were very sensible.

Please encourage them to cut their own food up at home.
