  • Friday 26 May 2023 26th May 2023 The final week of Term 5 ended with a walk around Westbury, passing by many landmarks including the old Infant School, the oldest indoor swimming pool in the country, a secret garden and the park. Here we had an ice lolly before some end of term fun on the equipment. During the week the children enjoyed making aeroplanes at the parent event, writing about aliens, implementing their PE skills on the Trim Trail and making books and models.

  • Friday 26 May 2023 Mrs Smith This week in millipedes we have enjoyed our last week with Mrs Smith to the fullest extent! I know we all wish Mrs Smith well in her new role in family support. It has been amazing to work alongside her and we will miss her dearly.
  • Friday 26 May 2023 A busy and creative week! It was fantastic to see so many of you on Tuesday at our Parent Event and for the children to be able to share their puppets with you whilst making the finger puppets – it certainly looked like equal fun was had by all! As you saw, the children have made the most wonderful hand puppets, which involved learning a new skill of sewing a running stitch and following a design. Well done Brilliant Beetles! (Unfortunately, I have had a slight tech issue with the photos from the event, but I hope to upload them on my next blog.)
  • Friday 26 May 2023 Optimistic orienteering and perceptive post code cracking! The children have been working really hard this week to give and follow directions in Geography, using left and right, forwards and backwards, half and quarter turns and learning about the 4 points of the compass. Our topic was completed on Thursday afternoon with our exciting parent event. We were so grateful for all of the support shown by the parents/careers who attended and I know how much the children appreciated you being there so THANK YOU!! We had lots of fun, beginning with an orienteering activity on the trim trail. Our optimism for a dry and sunny afternoon was not miss placed. We had a set of directions to follow which would lead to different letters hidden around the trim trail. Once all of the letters were collected it would spell a word associated with our topic. It was aerial as in an aerial view. Then we had 2 other activities, one where the children could draw and name 4 places we saw on our local walk last week, and our final activity cracking the post codes. We used

  • Sunday 21 May 2023 Friday 20th May 2023 We have been extremely busy bees in Bumblebee Class this week. Our reception children have focused on shapes this week, being able to spot them in our environment and name them. In addition to this they have focused on the well known, 'That's not my,' books and used describing texture words such as hard, soft, rough and smooth and created wonderful textured animals including a fantastic giant bumblebee. In Year 1 the children have been learning all about fractions in math's. The children learnt to find half of a quantity and a quarter of a shape. In addition to this the children learnt all about Shabbat and why this time of the week is special for Jewish families. Some of our Year 1 children were very busy on Wednesday as they joined the mainstream classes for a walk around Westbury and they were fantastic at spotting landmarks in our local community. Our Year 2 children have worked extremely hard this week as it has been SATs week. We couldn't be more proud of how hard they have tried
  • Friday 19 May 2023 Whales and the Whitehorse This week in Millipedes we have been captivated by Wales...
  • Friday 19 May 2023 Friday 19th May 2023 This week the children had the opportunity to meet Helen Chester a local artist who ran a workshop for the class. The children enjoyed looking at Helen’s painting of the Westbury White Horse and learning how to paint a horse. The children had a go at creating their own Westbury White Horse pictures and you can see how they turned out below.
  • Friday 19 May 2023 19th May 2023 A local artist came and visited the children this week to share her own artwork of Westbury White Horse and help the children complete their own version. They have also been busy drawing pictures to match number sentences, Using the story of 'Billy's Bucket' for ideas. The warmer weather has encouraged the children to venture out of class and improve their tennis skills and the water play has been a hit with the children working together to solve problems.
  • Friday 19 May 2023 Westbury Walk for Glow Worms This week, we have been working hard in geography to recognise human and physical features. We went on our walk around Westbury on Wednesday afternoon, the children had a map and we followed the route to spot different places around the town. It was quite tricky to work out where we were but the children did a great job of drawing a symbol to show what places we arrived at. The children were very tired at the end of the walk so they were rewarded with a little play in the park, which was our last stop.

  • Wednesday 17 May 2023 Puppets Hopefully, the children have come home this week and told you about the wonderful puppets they have been making. As part of their DT topic, the children have been designing their hand puppet which they then had to transfer to making and sewing. They had to clearly follow their design down to choosing the colour of the thread and the detail they added.
  • Wednesday 17 May 2023 Westbury Walk Today the children went on a walk around Westbury. Thank you so much to the volunteers for coming with us, without you we really could not do such things. The children had a great time following the map and locating human features on our route. We discovered it was quite tricky to follow the map and work out where we were. We will practise this more back in class. The children went home exhausted but full of information about what we saw so hopefully they can tell you something interesting.

  • Monday 15 May 2023 Friday 12th May What a busy week we have had in Bumblebee Class. During their math's sessions the children have focused on comparing quantities to 10 (YR) multiplication and division (Y1) and number bonds and plotting numbers on number lines (Y2). They have also focused on personal hygiene in topic and looked at how germs spread and how to wash our hands properly. The children found using glitter to show the spread of germs very exciting! In addition to this they have learnt about why Jews celebrate Hanukkah and used their bodies as percussion instruments to create music. We have also spent lots of time outdoors this week as the weather has picked up and dug for worms and looked for a range of minibeasts. Well done Bumblebees, what a super week!

  • Friday 12 May 2023 12th May 2023 We had a delivery this week that came with an exciting huge box! The children also enjoyed using our new large parts construction materials and it has been lovely to see the collaboration between groups and good quality conversations taking place.
  • Friday 12 May 2023 Drumming and Sewing Wow! Another short but incredibly busy week in Firefly class. The children have had the most wonderful time. It started off well with a wonderful drumming workshop to round off our topic on Kenya. The children each had a drum to experience what it was like. Where they hit the drum made a different sound, the inside was the base and the outside was called the slap. We then had to learn a rhythm and keep in time with Oumar, Mrs Russam was his apprentice! (She still has a lot to learn!) Then we finished off with a good old dance to Waka Waka which got everyone enjoying themselves.
