Take a look at some pictures of our classroom environment.....
We are a Church of England school and this a big part of our curriculum. A St James' child values the fruits of the spirt in everything that they do. The fruits of the spirt are; Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, & Self-Control
How do you show the fruits of the spirit?
We have been learning all about how Hindu's celebrate Diwali. We had great fun making our own Mehndi Patterns and Diva Cups. We even tried some Indian food...
Chinese New Year 2022 - The Year of the Tiger
We had a fantastic day we had celebrating Chinese New Year.
Everybody really enjoyed wearing red for good luck and trying Chinese cuisine!
We learnt about the story of Chinese New Year and the ways people celebrate. Everyone took part in a range of activities including; making tiger masks, Korean writing, dancing to Chinese music and role-playing a Chinese takeaway.
Today we all made a Christingle.
We learnt that the orange symbolises the world, the red ribbon shows Gods love, the sweets show the four seasons and the candle demonstrates that Jesus is the light of the world.
We had fun singing our Christmas song and lighting our Christingles.
In our classroom environment, both inside and outside, we have lots of fun activities.
These activities cover all areas of the EYFS curriculum.
We complete these independently and we call this busy learning!
We have 2 PE sessions each week.
This half term, our 'REAL Foundations' session will be focusing on footwork and our 'REAL Gym' session will be focusing on shape and travel...
Lesson 1 will be every Thursday
Children need to come to school wearing their PE kit
Lesson 2 will be every Monday
Children do not need to wear their PE kit for this session, they will remove their shoes and socks in school
