Class R

Fun Day Thursday!

Class R had so much fun using the parachute today! They worked so well as a team, taking turns, listening to instructions and enjoying themselves ๐Ÿ˜€ IMG_0450

Easter Treats

This week Class R made delicious Easter nest cakes and decorated them with mini eggs. They carried them home in their Easter baskets that they made with Mrs Smith.



Afternoon tea with my Mummy!

How wonderful to welcome our Mummies and special ladies to our afternoon tea today.

We wanted to say a special thank you for all that you do, each and every day.

Mummies and other special ladies in our lives, including Grannies and Aunties, were treated to some lovely singing, presentation of special work, a poem, a gift of flowers and piano music.  Our special guests also enjoyed freshly baked scones, baked with our own Smalley eggs (thank you Mrs Mason), shortbread with strawberries (thank you Mrs Straw), freshly baked cakes (thank you Mrs Pace) and of course plenty of hugs and time to chat.  The children enjoyed their freshly baked biscuits made by our kitchen staff - thank you.

Thank you so much everyone for coming - it was really super to see you all. If you were unable to make it, we hope you enjoyed your special gifts.

Happy Mother's Day xx



Spring has sprung!

We have seen some signs of Spring in Class R this week. The bulbs we planted in the Autumn are now flowering and the Forsythia bushes are in bud. All the children have painted a beautiful daffodil and these are displayed in the classroom. Ava, Bobby and Holly showed their artwork in Gold Book Assembly today. IMG_0346

Reading for Life!

During Book Week 2017, special assemblies were held with lots of special guests. Our guests included Lucy Truman, who came to speak to the children on Tuesday about her work as an illustrator. Lucy also gave a masterclass to Class 4, where they designed some beautiful book covers. On Wednesday Tess, Oliver and Iris spoke about their favourite books, visiting Heanor library and making bookmarks. On Thursday, we welcomed Mr Huntington, who is the headteacher at Heanor Gate Science College; he came to read his favourite children's book 'The Highway Rat' by Julia Donaldson. Our very own Dr Shelton shared her wonderful book that she had written as part of her studies - she spoke to the children about everyone having the potential to write a book and that everyone has a book inside them  

On Friday, we held a special whole school assembly where each class shared the work they had been doing. 

Thank you to everyone who visited our school and to everyone who shared their work during our assemblies this week.

Book Week - Teacher Swap

As part of our book week in school, we held a teacher swap! Teachers went into other year groups to share their love of reading. This was enjoyed by pupils and staff alike.

I love my life!

We enjoyed thinking about the lyrics of this song in our assembly today. Please enjoy and share at home too.  


Perfect end to the week!

What a great end to the week - all of Class R were in Gold Book Assembly showing their wonderful artwork and Literary work. After the snowfall last week it inspired us to paint pictures of Snowmen and to link with our Space topic some children painted and drew Aliens.

Well done Class R Mrs Smith and Mrs Evans are very proud of you! IMG_0226
