Welcome to the Goldfinches Web page. Here you will find most of the information about our class and what is happening each term. It is now Term 3 and our whole school topic is Treasures Around the World in Goldfinches this means PIRATES!!
Our Topic area is going to be transformed into the Golden Goldfinch as we sail the seas investigating Famous Pirates from the past, counting up our treasures in maths and writing our own Pirate stories. For more information click on the link below
Below are some highlights of a busy Term 2 full of plenty of learning opportunities from Year 1 and 2 travelling down to Salisbury to visit the beautiful Cathedral, accompanied by our very much loved Nicholas Bear, to transforming our class to a Winter Wonderland and investigating Seasonal change alongside Winter Celebrations.
Our Winter Wonderland in Class included reading the Snow Queen story . As well as writing our own versions of this much loved story, we mixed different shades of blue for an ice castle and also worked scientifically on ice experiments.
So it was with great excitement that we had our very own Winter Wonderland in The Paddock on the few days it snowed!!
Our visit to Salisbury Cathedral was fantastic and the children’s behaviour was exceptional as we explored the Cathedral and looked for consecrated crosses on the walls of the Cathedral. We also took our much loved Nicholas Bear, the school bear.
Nicholas loves a trip out and he accompanied us to our Christmas trip to see the Borrowers at The Watermill in Newbury. He was very good as he hadn’t been to the theatre before!
Food Glorious Food was a great topic. We started off the term with Miss Wobble the Waitress
We worked scientifically to find out how jelly was made.
Which of course also involved eating it!
We had great fun in the Goldfinch Global café and we even had food made at home as part of Show and Tell!
The whole school had a very busy day on World Food Day. Everyone in the school took home their very own apple crumble.
We also found out about different foods from Around the World. Who knew quinoa and avocados were so popular in South America? Thanks to Mrs Knighton we did!
In amongst the busy term we had time to reflect and learnt about the Trinity. Finding out about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, three in one. We made triangle collages, plaits and windmills.
