Monkeys

Welcome to Monkeys class page.  Our class teacher is Miss Burden and our wonderful teaching assistants are Dawn, Ramiz and Michelle.  On a Tuesday Miss Parker teaches us.

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year and have enjoyed getting to know each other.  We all know our school golden rules and are working hard everyday to demonstrate our school values.

Easter bonnet parade!

A big thank you to all of you for the fabulous Easter bonnet creations we had lots of fun parading them this morning.  Please have a look in our Easter gallery for more pictures of our Easter bonnets and the visit from the lambs!

World Book Day

Thank you for the fantastic efforts made on World book day our winner was Paddington Bear!

We have had a wonderful start to the new school year and have enjoyed getting to know each other.  We all know our school golden rules and are working hard everyday to demonstrate our school values.

In English we have been working hard on our phonics and reading the story We're Going on a Bear Hunt which is also the focus for all of our topic work this half term.

In Maths we have been working on number recognition, calculations and recognising and naming 2D shapes.

We have enjoyed a session at forest school and are in the process of making some beautiful art work with the natural materials that we found.  As soon as we have  finished we will put some photos on here.

Please have a look in our photo galleries on the left hand side of the page to see some of the things we have been doing in monkeys class! 

We had a fantastic time during our first Christmas STEM day! We used our iPads to go on a treasure hunt. We used the i-nigma app to read the QR codes to follow the codes to locate the treasure.  It was lots of fun and we watched lots of science videos on our travels.  We used the iPads to contol different devices to help decorate the Chritstmas tree.  In the afternoon we melted chocoloate to make our very own special Christmas chocolates.
