Welcome to Yew Class!
Meet the teacher
This half-term, we have had great fun! From celebrating World Book Day to enjoying various Easter activities, Yew class have been very busy. The children have explored and written some beautiful poetry, and really loved reading Where the Wild Things Are. We were also very lucky to have different sports visitors teaching us cricket and tennis.
Another half-term completed in Yew! It has been great to get back into routine after a busy Christmas period. We enjoyed exploring writing letters with The Jolly Postman, and following and writing instructions with Hodgehog. We loved visiting Lego Discovery Centre!
What a busy, fun half-term! We loved reading our books Leaf and The Emperor’s Egg and exploring the topics brought up in these stories. We have have been super mathematicians, focusing especially on addition and subtraction. We celebrated Children in Need and watched our first match of the World Cup! A huge part of this half-term has been the nativity. The children have all worked so hard to make it fantastic. ⭐️
Zoo 2 U
It was fascinating to meet, learn about, and even hold some of the creatures brought to us by Zoo 2 U. After meeting giant millipedes from the rainforest, we then went searching for some of our own in the cottage gardens. Yew class loved this visit!
It has been a wonderful, happy first half-term in Yew class. We have enjoyed learning about and reading the stories of the African Savannah and Zeraffa the giraffe, as well as the life of Jesus. We also had important discussions and read some fantastic books to mark Black history week. It has been lovely to make and develop new friendships!
