Lambing April 2018

Tinley Class had beautiful weather for their trip to see the lambs at Home Farm today. We asked lots of thoughtful questions and learned a lot about how lambs are born and what happens in their first few weeks of life at the farm.

Autumn 17

The beginning of term has been a busy and exciting one in Tinley so far. Our new Reception children have settled in well and are already enjoying their full days at school…..especially lunch time!


We have had fun with Science, learning about air (an invisible gas) and how to make slime. We have also started to explore the autumn season and what changes happen in the weather and the environment. We have made autumn collections and painted with fallen, bruised apples and leaves, with beautiful results.

This term, we have been reading books about food and have shared our food heaven and food hell!

We have read about Charlie and Lola (who is a fussy eater) and Oliver’s Vegetables (he’s also a fussy eater!)

Take a look at our photos and do pop in to class in the coming weeks to see the lovely art work and writing on the walls.

We have also been learning how to take care of the guinea pigs and how to handle them with care. They enjoyed our fallen apples too….and they are NOT so fussy eaters!

We will be investigating foods and where they come from and exploring different recipes, writing our own set of instructions to follow. We will be reading Handa’s Surprise – so don’t share that one at home – or there will be no surprise to discuss!! We will be having a go at writing our own version of the story, becoming authors and illustrators and will be writing poetry.

Our two trips this term will enhance the learning in school, with plenty of opportunity to describe, sequence events, role play, measure, weigh, compare, follow instructions and practise our hand-eye coordination and physical skills.

Harvest time will give us an opportunity to celebrate the food we are blessed with.

However, Christmas is approaching fast and soon we will be turning our thoughts to the Nativity. Watch this space!
