    Amazon Class have been thoroughly enjoying their Ukele lessons so far this term, learning to play many different notes and putting them together to play some fantastic tunes, guided by our very talented Ukele teacher.

    The children always look forward to their Ukele sessions on a Wednesday afternoon and come back to the classroom filled with enthusiasm.

  • Year 1 Phonics Superstars

    Published 10/10/21

    Transitioning from Reception into Year 1 can be quite overwhelming, with a change in classroom structure and a different timetable of learning to adapt to.

    Regardless of this, Year 1 are already making their mark on Amazon Class and are settling in so well. It has been a pleasure to explore daily phonics with Year 1 so far this term, and they have really impressed me this week with the progress they have made. 

    Here are a few photos of the children learning the different ways to spell the sound 'ay' and achieving quite a long dictated sentence during one of their phonics sessions this week.

    I am very proud of you all, Year 1.

    Mrs Anderson :)

  • Pudding Lane Bakers

    Published 07/10/21

    This week the children explored what it would have been like to be bakers in the bakery on Pudding Lane. 

    We carefully followed instructions to sieve the ingredients, add the yeast, mix and knead the dough. We explored the different smells that would have been in the bakery in 1666; smelling the yeast and enjoying the wonderful smell coming from the ovens as our dough baked. 

    We were so excited to see our finished bread rolls and were very careful to make sure the ovens were turned off so that we didn't have our own Great Fire of Stanton.

    Next week we shall be using bossy verbs to write instructions to bake bread.

  • Our trip to the STEAM Museum

    Published 16/07/21

    On Tuesday, Amazon class went on their long-awaited trip to the STEAM Museum in Swindon, to continue their learning all about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his achievements. 

    The children were so excited to go on a trip after such a long time and even the coach was an exciting highlight for many!

    We had the whole museum to ourselves (due to Covid restrictions) which meant the children were free to explore after taking part in a highly enjoyable and informative workshop. Did you know, Brunel wore a top hat to make himself look taller, and he was even known to store his lunch in his hat too? Brunel's hat was particularly taller than other hats, to resemble the funnel on a train. 

    The children had a go at becoming little engineers and built their very own trains. There was lots of dressing up and role play and lots of clambering on trains too. We met lots of realistic wax work models and learnt that life on the railways was not always enjoyable.

    The staff at the museum were so impressed with the children's behaviour, manners, respect and enthusiasm for their topic. We couldn't have been prouder of the children and can't wait to venture out on another trip next year. 

    Well done Amazon class, we are so very proud of you!
