Winscombe Primary School


Welcome to Yellow Class

Our teachers are Mrs Crawshaw (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Axton (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).  We also have Mrs McCarthy, Miss Friend, Mrs Palmer, Mrs Henry and Mrs Horwood helping us in our classroom.   We are really looking forward to a year full of fun and learning.


Our topic this term is Home and Away.  We will be reading the story of Handa's Surprise and learning about Africa.  We will be exploring traditional African artefacts and learning some traditional African dances.  We will also be having fun with African drums.



We had such a lovely time sharing our stories and Jambo song with our parents and grandparents. Thank you so much for coming.

We had so much fun in PE using all the apparatus to practise our climbing, hanging and jumping skills.

We have created some wonderful African collages. Can you spot the African animals?

We are learning a traditional African song from Kenya. It is called 'Jambo' which in Swahili means 'Welcome'.

We have had a wonderful morning in our traditional African workshop. We played African drums, learnt an African Dance and dressed up in African clothes.

Fantastic drumming!

Handa's Surprise

Handa's Surprise 1

We are really enjoying reading the story of 'Handa's Surprise'. We have been tasting the different fruits and thinking of ambitious adjectives to describe them. We then decided which fruit we liked the best.

Thank you to the PTFA for organising a great Christmas disco.

We had a very special visitor in Yellow Class...

The Christmas fun has begun..!

As part of science learning, Sophie's dad came in to talk about us about his job as an Ambulance Technician. We learnt about the equipment he uses and we had great fun being bandaged.

Looking good for Children in Need.

We have started learning about toys. We had a lovely time sharing our toys with our friends. We asked each other questions and then went on to do some fantastic writing.

Mr Sapsford visited our class to tell us all about the trees we have growing in the school grounds. He showed us the three little saplings that have been planted and we learnt all about how they will grow.

We enjoyed a fantastic morning at the Thatcher's Orchards.  We would like to say a huge thank you to the PTFA for providing the money for the coach and to Emma Cox at Thatchers for organising a wonderful morning of activities.  

We have taken the seeds from the apples we collected last week. We have planted them so we can grow our own apple trees.

We learnt all about growing apples and tasted some apples and apple juice.

We helped Chris, the Orchard Manager, pick the apples and put them into the trailer.

Chris showed us the tractor he uses to pull the trailer when it's full of apples.

We had a lovely walk through the orchards and enjoyed splashing in the muddy puddles.

Ms Reece from Churchill Academy has been teaching us a Woodland Animal Dance - we are rabbits.

We have been looking at the work of the artist, Gary Hodges. We used his pencil techniques to create some beautiful owls.

We were very excited to meet our Year 4 Reading Buddies.

We have enjoyed a wonderful first week in Yellow Class.
