Dear Parents/Carers

Toucan class will visiting Santa’s Grotto in the Whitefriars Canterbury on Monday 13 December.

Please could you contribute a voluntary donation of £7.50, to cover the cost of the ticket, and pay via your PAY360 account.

If your child would like to wear their Christmas Jumper again, on that day, then please do let them. A warm coat and comfortable shoes will also be a good idea.

We will be back in time for lunch at school.



During term 5 Toucan class have has Art sessions with the specialist Art teacher and have used their theme of The Seaside for inspiration.
The students have explored floating and sinking using differing materials and objects, created bubble prints and experimented with mark making using wax crayons and chalks as well as the process of wax resist using paint, candles and crayons.
They have also explored the process of collage using differing materials such as sand, maps, cellophanes, tissue paper etc. to create group and individual pieces as well as creating individual pop up cards.

Social Skills

In Toucan Class, we spend a lot of time working on developing our turn taking and communication skills.  We learn how to play games with each other, we help each other to play fairly and we practise our Maths skills.  We have made brilliant progress, lots of pupils can now play the games without any adult help.


Toucan Class have worked so hard on their phonics and have been putting their efforts into practise with in their reading and their writing.  All children have made progress with their sound recognition as well as writing tricky words and cvc words.  Everyone thought it was very funny to use their skills to write their own silly sentences! 


We have been learning about using money.  Pupils have been identifying coins, adding up different amounts and role playing shops.  Here is Finley, in charge of the fish and chip shop, serving the customers and working out the total of the bill!
