Our Learning
Have a look at our fantastic learning.

Tudor Outfits
As part of our topic, we created Tudor outfits. The children had to measure, sew and glue. The children created amazing outfits.

World Book Day
As a whole school we looked at the book ‘Journey’. In Alders we created a picture map of the story, children drew their own worlds that they would like to go to and designed their own t-shirts with pictures from the book.

National Storytelling Day

The children brought in their own books and shared them with the class.

We have been learning about Christingles and what they represent. We have also talked about why they are used in church services. We made our Christingles so that we could take them to church for the Christingle Service.

We have been learning about World War 1 and Remembrance day. As a school we created a display and each class made poppies for the display. We made pin wheel poppies.

During Forest School we made habitats for animals; hedgehogs and Felix the fox.

We made Christmas cards. We made felt gingerbread men and decorated them.
