Jill Murphy 

We are named the Murphy class after the author Jill Murphy. Our favourite books by Jill Murphy include Peace at Last, The last Noo Noo, Whatever next and the series of books about the Large Family. We have our class mascot called Bert. He visits the children's homes during weekends and half term breaks.

This week we have been learning about Diwali. It means row of lights. We have been comparing the traditions that are celebrated at Diwali to our own traditions. We have really enjoyed our fun week!
We have loved having our teddy bears at school. We have used our bears for lots of learning! We have made labels for our bears! We have written why we love our bears. We have compared the sizes of our teddies and then measured them using cubes. We finished our term by having a lovely teddies bear picnic!


Reception learnt about the important of Harvest for Christians. We spoke about why we give thanks to God at this time of year. We looked at different vegetables and then made delicious soup!  

Bear Experiment.

We have picked a gummy bear and put it in a clear cup, we choose which liquid we wanted to put over our bear (squash, salt water, bubble bath or diet coke.) Now we are waiting to see what happens!

We acted out the story of Peace at Last!

We loved Indian dancing!

We went on a REAL bear hunt!!

We are really enjoying our first few weeks at school.
