There are 29 children in Rabbit Class taught by Mrs Dean and
supported by Mrs Barker. Mrs Rayns will be teaching the class on Thursday afternoon. Keep an eye on our website page to discover what
we have been learning about and what is planned this year!
P.E. lessons will be on a Tuesday afternoon and could take place indoors or outdoors, so it essential that your child comes prepared with the correct kit.
Swimming will begin on Monday 12th September. All children will need to have their swimming kit for this session. We are always desperate for helpers for swimming, so if you could spare a few hours on Monday afternoon please pop in and see us.
If your child is unable to participate in either swimming or PE, please speak to Mrs Dean or Mrs Barker or send a note in with your child.
As part of our healthy school approach we would encourage all children to bring a water bottle so they can have access to a drink of water during the day. This will allow them to keep hydrated, which will have a positive impact on their concentration and stamina.

We will be going on a boat trip along the River Trent to look for the different physical features in our local area. Will we see features like meanders, oxbow lakes and tributaries? We will find out about the different features of rivers, rivers of the world, river erosion, dams and how rivers and our waterways are used today and compare it to the past. We will also be learning about the water cycle.
Our homework project was to create our own Dalmations. We could choose a variety of different materials and our families got stuck in to create some amazing Dalmatian specimens.
They are all on display outside our classroom - nodding politely! Come and take a look. There are some really imaginative ideas and they are all uniquely different.

We would like you to make a Dalmatian!!!
Look at pictures, cartoons and photographs of Dalmatians and their puppies to understand their body shape and recognisable features, such as ears, muzzle and tail. Use materials such as wire, newspaper, masking tape, inflated balloons or junk to create the shape of a Dalmatian. Layer their Dalmatian’s body with tissue and glue, plaster strips or papier mache. Once dry paint the Dalmatian white and add black spots and facial features. Have Fun!
Heroes and Villains
It’s time for the class to meet one of the world’s most evil women – the unashamedly wicked, Cruella De Vil. Watch how she snaps and sneers, heckles and jeers, what a villainous villain she is! Listen to Cruella’s terrible tales of Dalmatian entrapment – what gruesome and wicked desires she has! Ask questions to interrogate her. How is she planning to get hold of those cute Dalmatians and – if you can bear it – what she wants to do with them. The children will also be learning about Bonnie and Clyde, fairy tale villains and heroes and modern day heroes!
