Squirrel Class
Welcome to Squirrel Class ! In Squirrel Class we are taught by Miss Burlone and Mrs Stratford. We have all settled really well into school and have made lots of lovely friendships already.
 In the EYFS environment we learn and explore through play and our teachers carefully plan activities to suit our needs and next steps.  At the moment we are exploring the theme of celebration and to show our ideas, we made models and pictures which are now on display in our classroom.  We have also been very busy learning our letters and sounds so that we can read words and write our own stories for our book corner. In Maths we have been exploring numbers and patterns!

We are very excited because we have been busy learning and singing new songs for our Nativity which is very soon !


Giddy Goat

Reception and Year 1 enjoyed an afternoon at Portsmouth guildhall when they watched a music concert performed by ensemble 360 orchestra.  It was very exciting to see the different instruments including: Violin, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Flute, Oboe Clarinet, Bassoon, French Horn and Piano play songs to accompany the story of ‘Giddy Goat’.

“I loved seeing the big double bass it played very low sounds” – James

“My favourite was the bassoon” – Olivia

As well as listening to the ensemble play the Finale from the Carnival of the Animals there was a lot of audience participation as the children joined in singing and making actions to the songs which accompanied the story. ‘Rock rounders’ was a favourite song with the instruments playing the characters pretending to be brave or scared.
