Week beginning 6th July

We have been learning about the solar system now for many weeks. Can you name all the planets? How many are there and can you order them starting with the planet closest to the sun?


Did you see my blog post last week about Planet X or sometimes called Planet 9?


Here are some interesting facts about some of the planets.

Find out what the surface of Mars is like with NASA's Curiosity rover!
Use the word mat to write some space words and anything that you have learned about the solar system this term.
Continue the pattern with this game Planet Pal.

Can you make a shape picture with this web page? Can you name the shapes that you have used?


I made a rocket. How many shapes did I use and what were they?

The sun is in our solar system as we can see in Amber's beautiful picture.

Autumn Term

In Silver Class we have been having an exciting time, making new friends and settling in. We have been encouraging and supporting the children to form positive relationships with their peers and with the adults that will be working with them this year. Silver Class have been exploring their new surroundings and engaging in activities from all areas of the Foundation Stage Curriculum.


Take a look at what we have been doing.

We had a great time learning our Christmas songs to sing to our parents and carers. We especially enjoyed singing, 'When Santa got Stuck up the Chimney' and thought it was funny when his 'nose is tickling too'. 

Spring Term


Silver Class have settled back into the new term, by travelling on our very own 450 bus. We have been taking it in turns to drive the bus and become passengers, going to all sorts of places. 


"I went to the funfair"



"I went shopping and bought some food"



"I was the bus driver and I took the passengers to Australia"



"Someone is ringing the bell, so I have to stop the bus to let everyone off"


The second half of the spring term has started with all things dinosaur! We have been paleontologists, finding fossils. We have found dinosaur bones and skeletons on our adventures.
