In Duckling class we have Mrs Kimmins (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Tainton (Thursday and Friday), who are our Teachers.
We also have lots of other adults who help us in both Lamb and Duckling classes. Mrs Leach, Mrs Ball, Miss Bartlett, Mrs Balsom, Miss Parr and Miss Bulled.
Madame Wilson teaches us French, music and yoga on Wednesday & Thursday afternoons.
And also a big thank from all of us for the lovely gifts the children have given us for Christmas. Have a wonderful holiday and a good rest. We look forward to seeing you all again in January. Mrs Gibbon, Mrs Tainton and Mrs Kimmins
11.12.20 The children have worked really hard to learn and perform our Christmas play. This week we recorded the play and you can watch it by visiting the 'video gallery' area on the website. We hope you enjoy watching it and join us in congratulating the children on a wonderful performance.
4.12.20 We had a fun week in Ducklings this week, having adventures with Elmer the Patchwork elephant! Have a look below to see what we have been doing.
20.11.20 This week have have been thinking about how we can keep Lamb class being happy and friendly. We started with Odd sock day on Monday. Come and see our circle of friendship. We can all talk about what kind words we would say to our friends, how we could show our kind hands and remembering to keep our feet kind as well.
13.11.20 Wow! What a busy week we have had! We remembered Poppy day on Wednesday, then learnt about Diwali on Thursday and today celebrated Pudsey day! Come and see all of the busy things we have been doing ...
06.11.20 The children have enjoyed a lovely four days at school. They came back ready and keen to learn! This week we have enjoyed learning about Autumn and Fireworks. Come and see some of the activities we have been doing!
Wizzy has loved seeing all the Nursery Rhyme homework!! You can still bring some in if you would like to-Wizzy would love to see it :-)
The children have been doing a brilliant job with their reading and are starting to use their sounds which is lovely to see. We changed the books again today as we are not in tomorrow. We appreciate that it would have been nice to have had more than one book for the holidays, and is something we usually do, but unfortunately, due to having to isolate the books on their return, we do not have enough books to make it possible. We hope that you understand. Please feel free to read any books of your own and record them in the reading record and the library is also open and have some lovely books on offer. It would be great for the children to continue practicing their phonics by looking for the sounds they know in their books at home and spotting them in the environment when they are out and about during the holidays.
Here are the handwriting rhymes for you to use. So far we have covered s/a/t/p/i/n/m/d
Wizzy would like to tell you about your holiday homework!
18.9.20 We have had a super week in Duckling class this week. The children have settled in really well to the routines of school life and enjoyed going over for lunch in the big hall. They are coming in really well in the mornings and we are all really proud of them!
The children have joined in with counting, recognising and ordering numbers this week as well as drawing pictures of themselves and practicing writing their names. Today they had a go at decorating their names with finger paints.
Yesterday the children took turns in small groups to explore our fort, which they loved and today they all had a turn using our tricycles, enjoying going in and out of the cones on the playground!
We think they have had a great second week. Have a good weekend and a lovely rest and we'll be ready to do it all again next week!
11.9.20 What a wonderful first week we and the children have had!! It has been so lovely to get to know them all and see them settle into duckling class. We are really looking forward to the exciting year ahead and the fun memories we will make together along the way!
We will post weekly updates and photos here on our class page at the end of each week, so that you can see a little of what the children have been up to.
Here are a few pictures from our very first week together, for you to enjoy.
We hope you have all enjoyed your child's first week as much as we have and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any concerns or need to let us know anything important.
Mrs Tainton and Mrs Kimmins
