Hello, and welcome to Term 2 in Wallaby class. This term, we are having ‘How we Express Ourselves’ as our central theme. We have looked at works of art produced by professional artists exhibited at Tate Modern, looked at street art, and listened and danced to different music genres. Wallaby Class have made an amazing start to planting new trees in our woodland area. So far, we have each planted a rowan tree sapling. Exploring the copse and other wooded areas has become a regular activity, and we are now looking forward to beginning Forest School sessions with smaller groups.
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.
