Our Christmas Service

We were delighted to share our singing, acting, dancing and instrument playing with everyone at our Christmas Service in church this week. Many thanks to everyone who supported us!

Christmas Lights Switch On

Thank you to Mrs Painter and the choir who entertained us at the Corfe Castle Christmas Lights Switch on.

Also special thanks to our ‘celebrities’ who switched the lights on.

And finally, thanks to the Festivities Committee for allowing us to be part of this lovely celebration.

Printed Wall Hanging

Come and have a look at our wonderful wall hanging made from the African printing that Reception and Years 1 and 2 made last term.  It has pride of place in the hall. 

Huge thanks to Mrs Cake for sewing it all together for us.  

We’re very proud of it!

Transition Morning

What a busy morning we have had!

The children have all had fun with their new classes and have enjoyed getting to know their new teachers.


Take a look at what we have harvested from our garden…

Going For A Rumpus!

You may have heard some very strange noises and seen some very strange things on our school field this morning…

And when he came to the place where the wild things are, they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws…

“And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”

Our current topic!

This half-term, we have been exploring traditional tales, with our topic ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. You can find out what we have been learning about here: jandthebtopicweb

Moving into the next half term, we will be continuing with our traditional tales theme, looking at the Three Little Pigs. We have lots of fun activities planned, which can also be found in topic web above.

All the best,


Miss Stranks





Amazing Africa!

Ladybird Class is loving learning all about Africa! We have been investigating what it is like for a child in Kenya, looking at physical and human features of the country, weaving Africa-style mats, tasting different African fruit and creating beautiful African plains-themed silhouette paintings. Today we looked at volcanoes. The children loved creating a volcano that would erupt by experimenting with different chemicals. They have created their own clay volcanoes which will be coming home soon- please look out for ‘volcano experiment instructions’ which will also be in book bags for home experimentation!

Enjoy seeing the children’s learning so far in this topic:



beautiful, careful weaving and exploring fruit that grows in Africa! Can you spot the children’s fantastic African silhouette pictures? They learnt how to blend colour to create an interesting sunset.

Everybody is in suspense as the volcano erupts!
