As part of our celebrations this week, we thought about what we are grateful for.

Our self- portraits

We have been exploring what happens when colours mix together!

This week we are learning about a living artist called Yayoi Kusama.  We have found out that she is from Japan, and has bright red hair.  


We have enjoyed looking at photographs of her exhibitions.  Can you guess which picture we thought looked like tentacles?

Yayoi Kusama Covered Everything in Dots and Wasn't Sorry by Fausto Gilberti | Art books with kids

This is the story of Yayoi Kusama's art, written by Fausto Gilberti and illustrated in beautifully minimal monochrome images. The story brings to life Kusama...

This week we have been exploring our creativity

Beoley Bookworms


Each morning we begin our day with Beoley Bookworm time where we practise our reading, phonics, roach and fine motor skills.  

We’ve been on a letter hunt today!

We hunted high and low for letters in outdoor area at school, seeking them here and seeking them there! Some of us were hunting for initial sounds, and others were hunting for letters to spell out our tricky words - we amazed our teachers with our phonics skills! 

Watch this space for our incredible ingredients!

We are busy learning in Moss Class!

This is our Super Smoothie

We made alliterative layers to consolidate our phonics learning this week.  Well done to those of you that tried our alliteration home learning challenge this week.  We have loved the names that you have shared with us! 

It’s been a maths-filled day,

Our ‘Our Families’ displaying is looking great!

Our Alliteration Story

Some highlights from our week

Fabulous Friday Thoughts

In phonics this morning we were learning about alliteration.  We thought of positive words that started with the same sound as our name.  

This morning we worked collaboratively to create our own story using 4 objects as prompts. 


What story could you tell using an owl. a ladybird, a bus and a boat?
Today we have visited the Zebra Crossing at the front of school.  We discussed the importance of looking both ways, and listening when we are near to a road.  We have a road in our outdoor learning area at the moment and have been practising the 'crossing the road' skills that we have learnt today in our play.

Fabulous Friday Thoughts

Positivity Games


We have been celebrating positivity today as part of our Positivity Games.  We discussed how positivity can spread and all the things that help us to feel positive.  We used this video to see how easily positivity can spread and spent our afternoon spreading positivity. 

Share your Positivity

It has been a fantastic first full week at school for Moss Class, and one that the children should be very proud of!  Well done everyone!

Welcome to Moss Class, and to Beoley First School


We are so excited to meet you!  Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy preparing our new learning spaces and they are almost ready to share with you.  I will post some photos here, as well as e-mailing them to each of you before our new term begins.  


I can't wait to hear all about your summer adventures!  During the summer holidays my family adopted a baby rabbit.  His name is Flop and we love him, even though he makes me sneeze and itch a lot!  Here is a photo of him, he is a very cheeky rabbit!


See you soon, 


Mrs Bartlett
