We plan from the children's next steps and interests.

Our next topic is Jill Murphy

here is our topic web:


Jill Murphy

Our class is named after the Author Jill Murphy.

She started writing books when she was 6 years old. She stapled pieces of paper together to make her own picture books.

She started writing her first published book at 15 called The Worst Witch. This was published at 24.

Jill Murphy illustrates all her own work!

She has written several books which include the Large family who are elephants. Our class has elephants everywhere, including Bert who visits different children at home each weekend!

Our fantastic work

We have been learning about Diwali the Hindu festival of lights! We learnt about their different traditions to celebrate  new year. We then compared Diwali to our favourite festivals.

We loved our trip to the park! We enjoyed using all the different equipment!

We turned reception into a spa! We all went around and tried lots of different treatments. We felt very relaxed afterwards!

Roald Dahl Day


We enjoyed joining in with Joe Wicks school keep fit, we all found it very tricky and were worn out at the end!
