Thursday 18th May

In maths we have been sharing fairly and equally. We shared beans between plant pots today. The children knew to count them at the end to check they had shared them accurately.

Wednesday 10th May

Today we enjoyed a visit from a real author, Amanda Stones. She read to us her new book. The children listened very carefully and enjoyed this special visit.












Friday 5th May

Wow. It was superhero day today and boy did we see some superheroes. As you can imagine the children were very excited and we had a fantastic day. I have uploaded photos below, I wanted to upload a lot so that you can see the jam packed day we had and get a feeling for the excitement! Please enjoy looking at the photos below.

Tuesday 2nd May

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend! We have come back this week with a focus on subtraction, throwing and catching and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have read the story and already started on ball control and subtraction. You can help at home by practising counting back from a given number. This gives then the skill of mental subtraction.

Monday 24th April

Today the children did observational drawings of daffodils. They were asked to draw what they could see, not what they thought they could see. This was quite tricky, but they all managed to draw wonderful daffodils which were then coloured in. Some of them even used 2 shades of the same colour to in their drawings. Well done.

Tuesday 18th April

Welcome back to Urmston Primary School! We started our day with a celebratory breakfast, then Hayley Cutts from Newsround helped us to open our new school together. We then enjoyed a play time as a whole school, it was lovely to see some of the boys and girls find their friends and family members in the junior department.

I’m sure this is the start of a very exciting term!

Friday 31st March

I can’t believe that it is April tomorrow and nearly the end of the spring term. What a big difference in the children since the start of the term. This week we have used numicon to make bonds to 10, had porridge oats in the water tray to find matching eggs, had broccoli in the play dough to act as trees for the animals and made Noah’s ark outside. This week in maths we have been making pictograms and answering questions such as which is the most/least popular  we have also been estimating how many Easter eggs are in the basket.

Next week our Easter bonnet parade is on Tuesday at 10:15. I hope to see many of you there.

The tiger came to our tea party! The children were very excited and taught the tiger good table manners and how to share!

IMG_1011 IMG_1012 IMG_1013

















Friday 10th March

What a busy week we have had, I can’t believe it’s Friday already! This week we have read The Tiger who Came to Tea and we even had a visit from the tiger who messed up our role play and ate too much food! Consequently we wrote a letter to the zoo keeper to ask him if the tiger could back next week to our tea party where we would feed him a balanced meal and teach him table manners.

On Friday next week, we will be having our tea party, please see the weekly newsletter for more information and if you have any queries regarding the food feel free to ask!


This week in PE we have been using the apparatus, much to the children’s delight! We got the apparatus out with care and travelled along it carefully too.

Thursday 2nd March



World Book Day!

What a fantastic day we had! Thank you for all the hard work that you all put into your child’s costume, they all looked fantastic! The class experienced lots of different activities today. We started the day with a visit from the junior school, then a parade in the hall, followed by a book quiz!














Tuesday 28th February

Pancake day! Today the children designed their own pancake, we then used these to form a pictogram and gather information. It was great fun, especially because at milk time we got to eat some pancakes!

IMG_0784 IMG_0785










Friday 10th February

Today we enjoyed our Chinese Banquet! We listened to Chinese music and ate with chop sticks. We enjoyed prawn crackers and  noodles, what a lovely way to spend the afternoon of our last day before the holidays  I hope everyone’s had a lovely break! I have uploaded another book to your child’s active learn account should you wish to take a look.

Friday 27th January


This week we have been learning all about penguins. In PE we pretended to be penguins waddling and finding our other penguin friends. We have learnt that the daddy penguins look after the eggs whilst the mummy penguin looks for food. The boys and girls pretended that bean bags were the penguin eggs and had to tramsfer them to the mummy penguin when she came back without using their hands. It was very interesting to watch their team work skills!!!!

Friday 20th January

Today is Golden Time!!!! This is always a fun part of the week, especially when it’s own toys. Next week we will also have own toys! Please can the children only bring in one toy, as you can imagine with a class full of children it can be hard to store them all.

IMG_0526 IMG_0527 IMG_0528 IMG_0530


















Thursday 19th January

This week we have had a focus on our phonic sounds oi (coin), igh (light) and ow (cow). We have been writing words with these sounds in and some of us have been writing sentences.

We have developed our vocabulary this week by reading “That’s not my…..” books. We then wrote our own stories by choosing a cat, train, dog or teddy bear. We chose materials and described them using our new vocabulary.


In our outdoor learning we’ve been making igloo homes for teddy bears, writing on snow flakes, ordering numbers and so much more! I’m so proud of how all the children try new things and behave so well. Thank you Class 7!

Friday 13th January.


This week we have read We’re going on a bear hunt. After enjoying it so much we decided to write our version of the book. We came up with our own adjectives to describe the settings. The forest was damp, the river was warm and the grass was long and green. After spending the day rewriting the story we then acted out our story in the play garden, and you will never guess what happened…… we found our bear!

Thursday 5th January

Welcome back and happy new year. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break. This half term we are focusing on the season winter, looking at the North and South Pole, learning facts about polar bears and penguins and we will be reading ‘We are going on a bear hunt’.

It might only be the first day back but the children have got stuck into all the activities on offer. In our role play we have an Arctic explorers area. In our maths area the children are practising their number formation, filling in missing numbers and even counting in twos. We also have numbers to order on the penguins tummy! In our outdoor learning the children are hunting High Frequency Words on snowmen and writing down their findings on clipboards.

Have a look at the photos below to see how busy we have already been.

Tuesday 29th November



Today we played a game to help us with our use of positional language. The children picked a preposition out of the bowl (inside, under, in front of etc) and had to place the teddy bear somewhere in school using the word they had picked from the bowl. Can you guess what position they picked?

IMG_0181 IMG_0182 IMG_0184 IMG_0185






















Monday 28th NovembeR

Today we started to lean how to describe the position of objects by using positional language such as on, in front of, behind, in etc. We played a game on the laptops to help us with this.


IMG_0155 IMG_0156 IMG_0164 IMG_0167 IMG_0174 IMG_0176

Today we started our new topic on Meg and Mog. The children now have a potions lab in the role play, a potion making area in the water tray, a witch 2d shape cut and stick activity and much more. What a busy week we will have!

Today we were learning about symmetry. We looked at Rangoli patterns and identified the lines of symmetry. During outdoor learning we drew round 2d shapes and filled them with sand to make our own symmetrical Rangoli patterns.


IMG_0036 IMG_0037 IMG_0038 IMG_0039




















Friday 11th November.

What a busy week the children have had. We have really enjoyed all our activities based around Diwali. The children have told me all about their Bollywood dancing on Tuesday! This week we also had a visit from a Paralympian, Jordanna Bartlett. What an inspiration! The children asked her questions about life in a wheel chair and playing basket ball in the Paralympics.

We have also been ordering numbers on diva lamps and came into the classroom lit with diva lamps, just like the walk Rama and Sita would have made to get back home.


IMG_0005 IMG_0007 IMG_0009 IMG_0010 IMG_0011


























Friday 4th November

As part of our fireworks topic this week we ended with making our own fruit rockets! The children were encouraged to make a repeating pattern with their fruit. We had great fun! I hope they taste as good as they look!

Monday 31st October




Welcome back! What a great start we’ve already had to our new half term. today the children explored some of the new activities on offer in the classroom. We now have a birthday party in our role play corner. The children have enjoyed writing invitations, playing party games and arriving to the party in fancy dress.

In our water tray the boys and girls have had to use their muscles to squeeze water out of flannels and sponges to fill their jugs.

We have also begun to enjoy our firework themed dominoes!

Friday 21st October

Today we had jigsaws for our Golden Time. As well as being fun the girls and boys had to work together as a team. It was lovely to see such kind and caring work going on and turn taking.

Thursday 20th October.

Today was our Harvest festival. The children performed their songs beautifully, the rest of the school thoroughly enjoyed it too. We used our shakers to accompany a song and wore our headbands too. I am so proud of how well the children did!  Well done.










Monday 17th October

Today we made bread! The children loved kneading it and shaping it into a roll. We looked at the ingredients list, weighed them out, mixed it together and then in the afternoon had a little taste. We talked about the changes in appearance , the smell and the  taste.


image image image image image























Monday 10th October

Today the children were introduced to our Harvest Shop during outdoor learning. They bought vegetables, paid for them and then used the scales to weigh them and worked out which were heavier and lighter.

Many of the fruit and vegetables you see in the photograph were donated by Sainsburys in Urmston. If you have any spare fruit and vegetables that you would be willing to donate to our harvest shop we would very grateful.

Friday 22nd September

This week we’ve had our first PE lesson and the boys and girls really enjoyed it! We tried hard to get ourselves changed, any practise at home with this would really help! When we were down at the hall we practised listening to music and following the instructions.


image image image
















This week we have also had our very first singing assembly. The boys and girls tried really hard to join in with the actions













Wednesday 14th September

Today we were thinking about feelings. We used mirrors to make happy, sad, excited, scared and shocked faces. Can you tell which emotion we were acting out from these photos?
