Round Up Of The Week

Week commencing 9th May 2022

Ssshhh! This week Reception and Year 1 have been fantastic! Our big friends in Year 6 have been doing their SATs tests so we have been trying to keep nice and quiet so they could concentrate. We have been out to Forest School and had a go at building dens using sticks and logs (and mud for cement!). We have also made a giant Elmer using hand prints. 


Week commencing 2nd May 2022

 Cl R/1 have continued to look at Elmer with pupils writing their own beginning and end to a story about a unique elephant. In P.E., they played a number of Elmer-related games, seeing how high they could make Elmer fly and whether the jungle ranger could catch Elmer. In maths, the class started to look at fractions and how to make a half.

Week commencing 25th April 2022

This week Cl R/1 have been continuing to learn about Elmer—a unique elephant! As well as designing their own elephants and creating a cave for Elmer in the construction area, pupils have also been writing about themselves and describing how they are all individual and different

Week commencing 21st March 2022

Wow, what a busy week! This week we have been working hard on our spring assessments and have all given 100%. We were also lucky enough to spend some time outside playing tennis with Coach Andy from South Ribble Council. We learnt all about ball control and practised walking our dog (the ball). We are finishing off our week with a sports carousel on the field with the rest of the school.

Week commencing 28th February 2022

The class discovered a crime scene on Monday morning! Evil Pea had destroyed the carrots! Throughout the week, children have been detectives, trying to solve the crime, making a jail for Evil Pea and finding the carrots in the outside classroom. In Forest School, pupils built traps to try and catch Evil Pea. On Friday lunchtime our Big Friends and Little Friends enjoyed building bug hotels together.




Week commencing 21st February 2022

What a busy week!  Cl R/1 have enjoyed looking at their new class book “Supertato”. In continuous provision they built superhero dens and designed their own hero. Some of our Year 6 Big Friends also enjoyed sharing a story with their Little Friends. We also had a fantastic afternoon joining in with the fancy dress fun run organised by Friend's of Brindle St Joseph's to raise some money for.


Forest School

We had some very special visitors to our class! The newly hatched chicks came to stay with us. We learnt about the life cycle of a hen, and Miss Colpman came in to tell us all about what chicks need to thrive.  She showed us how to handle them carefully so we didn't scare them. We coudn't believe how noisy the chicks were. Especially when we were concentrating on our work quietly!!  Thank you Miss Colpman. We also enjoyed 'Dressing to Express' for Children's Mental Health Week on Monday as well as the important messages of Safer Internet Day on Tuesday.
