Hello, and welcome to Term 3 in Wallaby class. This term, we are exploring ‘How the World Works’ as our central theme. So far, we have made and explored the strange properties of ‘gloop’ in class (cornflour mixed with water), and were thrilled to find a variety of objects frozen overnight in our playground. We will continue our Forest School pilot programme (week beginning 14th January) and hope to develop our knowledge and understanding of the plants, animals and fungi that inhabit the wooded areas. Here are some photos to show what we have been up to.
This is Gerald from Golding Homes reading a story to Wallabies and Kangaroos.
We have begun our programme of Phonics, beginning with listening skills and hearing the variety of different sounds in words and all around us. Soon, we will begin to teach the sounds (phonemes) that the letters of the alphabet make. We follow the government designed ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme, and use the ‘Jolly Phonics’ songs and visuals (see the links below).
Please stop and ask if you have any questions, we are happy help in any way we can.
What People Say
Daci is learning really well. I love the fact that the children are pushed to their full potential.
It was very nice to be able to view Oliver’s work and see how he is progressing. Thank you for the opportunity.
“My child really enjoyed this Play and Stay and so did I as a parent. Nothing to improve – really pleased!”

Thanks for inviting me to do a story session with your school. I found the whole experience very rewarding as both children, and teachers were open to engage with me, and participated in listening to the stories, dressing up, singing and dancing.

“The behaviour of the Year 5 children was a credit to the school when we were out on the road.”

At the end of every lesson I know a bit more than before.
