Welcome to Pine, Almond and Lily classes ...
Much of our key information can be found in the 'Transition to Year One' presentation and the 'Meet the KS1 Teaching Team' presentation which includes staff, topics for the year, maths, reading, writing, spelling, homework, PE and contact information.
Let’s get messy. Muck and mess are good. In fact, they're marvellous. Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods. Pour, mix, stir, splat. How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo? Make a wobbly jelly and draw with wibbly clay. Write recipes, instructions, riddles and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures. Work with paint and other squelchy stuff to create a new gallery space. What will you make? How will you arrange it? How will the gallery make you and your visitors feel? Don’t worry about the mess – it’ll always wash.
Here is a list of recommended links that can be used by your children every day:

The children asked if they could do this at home, which they can. Just download the free app 'I can animate' Lite and have a go!
