Welcome to SSC smiley

Summer term 1 Pirates!


This term we are learning about pirates, the UK, maps and journeys.  We will also be exploring our inner pirates and discovering what qualities we have - including our pirate names.  So far, the children have enjoyed playing in our small world area, using the larger construction to build boats, made their own pirate crafts and are currently building a larger scale pirate ship as part of a team work exercise.  Over the next few weeks we look forward to exploring the different materials we could use to make rafts and building them, learning about famous pirates and where in the world they have travelled,  making our own maps to find the treasure and many more fun filled learning activities.  The children have requested a pirate party at the end of term so we are busy gathering their ideas for this - watch this space as they may ask to dig out those pirate hats at home ready to come in character!  

Spring term update.


We have had a busy term learning about Arctic animals and Superheroes, we have enjoyed the outdoors and the ever changing weather as our Forest School area has had exciting work done.  SSC have joined in lots of celebration days including World Book day, Red Nose day and Science week in school.  We have all enjoyed our weekly show and tell sessions where we are able to learn more about each other and ask each other questions about our experiences.  Next half term we are hoping for more sunny days and our next topic - Pirates!

We would like to wish you all a lovely Easter break.

Our trip to the Children's Adventure Farm 2023.


We had an amazing day visiting the adventure farm,  the children enjoyed a disco in the forest, toasting marshmallows by the fire, visiting the animals, fun on the park, a special lunch and a visit from Father Christmas - they also quite liked the bus journey too! 

Autumn term 2 - Space topic.


This half term in class we are learning all about space, we will explore the solar system and planets.  As part of this project we will find out about the names and features of planets and encourage the children to ask questions to find out more about the world around them.  During this half term we will also enjoy a special trip to The Children's Adventure Farm before jumping into the Christmas festivities.

Spooky day fun!


We have had a great time at school for Spooky day.  The children have joined in dancing and games, decorated pumpkin biscuits, made spooky bottles for decorations and finished off with a class party and snacks.  It has been a wonderful end to the first half term of the year.  We hope you all have a lovely half term and much needed rest.

Autumn 2023


We have got off to an amazing start to the new academic year in SSC. The children have settled well and new friendships are starting to form, which is wonderful to see.

We are excited about our topic for this half term ' It's Good To Be Me/I am Special.' Please keep looking on our webpage for photographs of the fun things we have been up to!
