This week's Achievement Awards go to Maisie and Lahna!


Maisie has really impressed us with the level of effort and engagement she has put into all her home learning tasks this week. The work she has completed has been of a very high standard and she often challenges herself by taking on the extension tasks too. It has been great to see her joining in with our class story, Wonder, and sharing her ideas in the meeting as she reads along with her own copy. I'd like to share her beautiful winter poem below as we've been delighted by her English work, and her response to the Lost Words poems we've looked at this week. Well done Maisie!


Lahna has joined our in-school Flamingos bubble from her usual Meerkats class and has taken to the change of environment like a duck to water. It feels as though she has always been a member of our class and she has impressed us with her hard work and determination, especially in Maths and English. She has been working hard on her afternoon projects with Miss Harrison too. Below is a photo of her enjoying our snowy breaktime with Georgia last Friday. A great start Lahna!

Christmas crafts

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Christmas has definitely arrived in the Flamingos class. We have all had a lot of fun decorating the room and doing some Christmas craft! The countdown to Christmas has started with our Harry Potter themed advent calendars and daily Christmas jokes!

A visit from Stripey the cat!

We were very lucky on Tuesday morning to have a very special visitor to our classroom who really didn't want to leave! After coming through our fire door several times, we tried to shut Stripey out, but he jumped in through our open window! I think he was very keen to join in our maths lesson as he found the maths books box very cosy! His owner was called for eventually and we said goodbye; I've just noticed a cat hair on my keyboard as  I type this! I wonder if he'll visit us again soon?

It's been a busy few weeks in Flamingos - happy half term!

Congratulations to our Special Mentions children for this half term!
