Otter Class 2023 - 2024

Miss Winsor and Mrs Lax with Mrs Gasson

Year 1 Art Project

Year 1 have been looking at the famous ‘Starry Night’ painting by Vincent Van Gogh in
their Art learning. The children started by learning about the primary colours and then
mixing their own secondary colours in preparation for painting their own ‘Starry Night’
paintings. The children explored different lines and how to create effects using line.
The children have created some beautiful artwork.

Christmas party time with a special visitor!

Your time to Shine: Friday 10th November


Thank you all for participating in our “Your time to Shine Day” in school today. The children were so bright and visible! We had some excellent outfits and accessories and were overwhelmed with the amount of thought and effort put in them. 

Every child who took part today has received a reflective item to wear or attach to their coats or bags.  We had a very difficult decision deciding on a boy and a girl class winner as there were some truly outstanding entries. The winners were:


Owls: Ellis and Isla

Rabbits: Crawford and Isabelle

Squirrels: Toby and Asia

Badgers: Kai and Adwoa

Hedgehogs: Tyler and April

Otters: Stefan and Martha

Foxes: Jaxon and Sienna

Moles: Darcey and Isaac

Woodpeckers: Charlie-Jack and Penny

Fieldwork Fortnight! The Year 1 children have been working together to problem solve! They have been using their eyes very carefully to observe the Human and Physical Geographical features around our school and have been detectives to locate the original object in the magnified photograph. They have found a letter by each object and worked together to unscramble the word! 5th July 2023

Otters had a fabulous time creating maps in our Meadow for Fieldwork Fortnight! We even spotted apples and pears growing on the trees too! 28th June 2023

Otter Class visited Staunton Farm today and what a wonderful day we have had! We met and stroked Simba the Ferret and found out lots of fascinating facts about ferrets including that they are the same family as otters! Our Otter class is related to Simba! Then we were off picking lime leaves to feed the animals- the alpacas, giants and sheep loved them ! They were really quite greedy! Then we went off to see the birds, the rheas were large and fluffy and we got to hold a real rhea egg! One of those would make a lot of cakes we found out! Just before lunch we met two very happy pigs who were having a mud bath to keep cool. We enjoyed our picnic under the trees and finished our day trying to get out of the maze !It was a bit confusing , Miss Merrell's group led us the wrong way ! We got there in the end! What a wonderful day. Mrs Norton Mrs Cameron, Miss Merrell and Miss Jelliff were very proud of Otter class today. Thank you to everyone who came on our trip today - 15th June 2023
