A very warm welcome to Auklet class! The adults that work in Auklet class are; Mrs Walsh (Class Teacher), Mrs Budd-Lowe (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Davis (Cover on Monday afternoons).

Our PE day is a Wednesday, please come to school wearing your PE kit and daps/trainers.

Spring Term 1

This half term we will be looking at Lost and Found, looking at Polar Regions and why some animals migrate. Please see below for our learning web for this half term.

Autumn Term 2

This half term we will be looking at Farming Through Time, comparing old and new approaches to farming and how this affects our everyday lives. Please see below for our learning web for this half term.

Nativity this year was held in St Mary's Church and was lovely to hear the children's beautiful singing echo around the church!

Auklet Class were very fortunate to have Head Baker of At The Chapel, Tom and assistant Kim come and bake some bread with us! We made some amazing creatures out of our dough and then got to eat them as our snack!

Our Topic Home Learning has been a great Show & Tell opportunity for Auklet this week. We've had loaves of bread like The Little Red Hen and chicken coops made from an array of materials! Duplo, gingerbread and pizza boxes!

We've been busy sorting 2D shapes this week by how many sides they have. We've then used mathematical language to describe the shapes in front of us.

Wow! What an amazing chicken coop for The Little Red Hen! Great home learning!

Music with Mrs Davis this week involved the glockenspiels! Some beautiful C, D and E repeating patterns were played.

A visit from Farmer Tom! He showed us how he uses tractors and machinery to tend to the land, making it much quicker than in the past!

Circle and triangles were found everywhere this week in Maths in Auklet Class!

Trip to the Rural Life Museum! We were busy making butter, flailing wheat and exploring the artefacts around the museum surrounding farming from a long time ago.

Little Red Hen took a visit to Auklet and Barn Owl Class! The children have then been busy making puppets to retell the story together.

Autumn Term 1

This half term our topic is 'Marvellous Me' in which the children will be sharing lots of wonderful things about themselves and their families. Please see below for our Topic Web for this half term's exciting learning. 

Autumn Welly Walk! We used our findings back at school to make repeating patterns, create woodland creatures and sort.

Patterns are everywhere! The children have loved making patterns with all sorts of objects!

We've been using comparative language this week of 'shortest' and 'tallest/longest'

Our story this half term is Goldilocks and the Three bears. The children have loved making and using the puppets to retell the story.

House collage challenge! Can you make a house from any of the materials on the table?

PE this week had us trying to receive and roll a ball to our team mates. It was a bit tricky trying to see through our legs upside down!

Matching! Reception have been busy trying to find things that match this week in Maths. We've had socks, natural objects and number of items.

Senses walk! We used our senses around the school grounds, we saw cows, we smelt and felt tress and listened to the nature on the school field.

Our first PE session at school had us playing lots of fun listening and responding games. Some of the children even had a go at being the teacher and calling out the instructions.

We've had a lovely first week at school, getting to know each other and the classrooms.




Sports Day! Well done to all of Auklet class for fabulous participation and determination in all races today!

Hobby Week! This week we have had so many visitors! We have been lucky enough to learn about dog grooming, cake decorating, Somerset Rural Life Museum, Wyke Farm cheese, line dancing, First Aid, farming and martial arts!

We've been busy practicing our Athletic skills! Throwing javelins in the wind was great fun!

Busy bees! As part of our minibeast topic the children have turned into pollinators! Spreading pollen to different flowers around the classroom.

Wow!! The children have been very lucky to meet a huge range of animals with Chris this week as part of our topic. We learnt about an African land snail, a pigmy owl, a gecko, a temrec, sticks insects and a milksnake!

PE this week was brilliant fun! We practiced some athletics by running, throwing and jumping! Lots of children have amazed the adults this week in determination to try something new or something trickier than usual. Well done Auklet!

First session swimming in Auklet was a great hit! All of the children were fabulous and had great fun.
