A warm Welcome to Wenlock Class page throughout the year we will be sharing lots of the learning and adventures we have in and around school as we continue on our learning journey, to be the best we can be!


The adults in school have been very busy preparing the learning spaces and planning some exciting activities and learning experiences for you to enjoy.  


We have made a short video to introduce ourselves and to show you around

In the week leading up to Christmas the children have been enjoying lots of fun and festive activities!

So feast you eyes!

Look at the fun we had at our special birthday party for those children who have had birthdays this term and during our Christmas party!

We have enjoyed wearing our Christmas jumpers!

We enjoyed eating our Christmas lunch and had a very festive time!

We also wrote Advent prayers to think about others less fortunate than ourselves.

We hung these on the Christmas tree in our classroom as we were not able to hang them at St Andrew's church this year.

We have also enjoyed some Christmas baking!

Classic gingerbread.

We had fun watching our school Christmas film 'Tinsel and Tea Towels!'

We set the classroom up like a cinema by sitting on chairs and enjoying popcorn!

We designed and made Rangoli patterns on the playground to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali.

Look at lour amazing symmetrical designs!

To celebrate Children In Need the children in Wenlock Class came dressed in spotty clothes. We made Pudsey book marks and ears and decorated biscuits with icing in a Pudsey design. We also joined Jo Wicks to exercise in the last 20 minutes of his 24 hour exercise challenge! We had an amazing time and raised lots of money for Children In Need!

Yesterday on Remembrance Day Wenlock Class walked to Mells village to observe a minute silence at 11:00am. Some of the children also read Remembrance Day poems that they had written. As well as this the children placed on the memorial the poppies they had made earlier this week.

To enrich our learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot we designed and created our own firework pictures on November 5th Look at our wonderful imaginative designs!

Today we went on a welly walk on a beautiful, crisp, clear day to look for signs of autumn. Armed with many interesting treasures we returned to school inspired to write autumn poems!


Below are the spelling lists for KS1 and KS2. Please remember to practice your current spelling band ready for our weekly spelling test.


As part of our Arts Week we have also been lucky enough to work with a local potter to design clay pieces to create a well being mural based on our experiences of the COVID lockdown.

Another day this week when focussing on noticing and enjoying nature and our surroundings, we enjoyed a woodland walk to look for 'y' shaped branches to make our dream wellbeing tree houses.

Once back in school we planned and then created our tree houses in groups, designing hammocks, bridges, living pods, ropes ladders and much more! Here are some photos of our experiences and tree house creations!

During our first week back at school we have been enjoying the outdoors!

As part of our first Arts Week focused around the five areas of wellbeing (Connecting, New Learning, Being Active, Noticing and Giving) we enjoyed a day of learning new things, including learning how to make a fire. After a treasure hunt during which we learnt to recognise common native leaves and flowers, we enjoyed making and eating 'Smores'!
