Holly Class news
In Geography this half term Year 1 are learning all about the local area. We have decided to find out all about a road that we all use everyday to come to school...Maypole Lane. 
 
On Wednesday we went on a walk along Maypole Lane to look at the different buildings. There were buildings that lots of people could visit...school and Gayton's Bakery. There were also lots of buildings we couldn't go into...these were people's houses. 
 
We noticed lots of houses were detached and some were bungalows. Some houses were joined together. These are called terraced houses. We noticed some houses were old and some were new. Lots of houses had garages, driveways and gardens.
 
In the next few weeks we are going to be doing some more "fieldwork" where we will be sketching buildings, carrying out surveys and comparing old and new maps to see and think about how and why the street, Maypole Lane might have changed.
 
Headteacher News
I was pleased to take some of our budding artists down to our new local Coop to have their photos taken alongside the artwork which they had created - Landmarks in our local community which is now displayed on the wall as you enter the shop.  The school will also have a copy of this which will be displayed in the main library area- along with some new furniture. The children were all very excited to see their own artwork on display for the general public to admire!
 
Year 2 - class page - Year 2 have been retelling part of the story of Hamlet and there is a photo of them below reading their own work to each other to help improve it.
