Welcome to Finch and Sparrow Class!
Our teachers are Mr Adams and Mrs Allfree. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Dorrell, Miss Bohane and Mrs Spearing.
Welcome to Term 1. Our topic is Paws, Claws and Whiskers.
Bristol Zoo came to Eldene!
As a transition between our paws, claws and whiskers and Superhero topic we have had a visit from Bristol Zoo. They came to school to talk to us about senses and how some animals have heightened senses that help them to be Nocturnal. We got to look up close at bats, frogs, a hedgehog, a badger and a crocodile. We then got to hold and touch a live snake, stick insect and a cockroach. We had great fun and learnt lots about how these animals use their senses to live at night.
Below are some useful links for our topic.
What does Term 1 have in store?
Outreach visit from Bristol Zoo confirmed for 10th October.
On Friday mornings from approx. 9:00-9.30, we invite our Mums and Dads to come and join in with us. We did lots of different activities last year including making a lollipop superhero, learning the months of the year and learning about Advent. Join us for the fun this year!

General websites for helping your child at home:
Phonics and reading:
Teach your Monster to Read
Jolly Phonics (the free resources section)
Please read at least 5 times at home every week and make sure you record it in your child's link book. Reading is such an important life skill so please encourage your children to practise. Don't be afraid to re-read the book or ask questions about what happened in the story and how the characters might be feeling. Can your child relate the story to their own life experiences?
