Peach Class

Welcome to our class page! Here you will find lots of useful information about our learning and about the things we are getting up to in Peach class.

Autumn Term

During the first part of the Autumn Term, we enjoyed getting to know all the children through our ALL ABOUT ME topic. We were so impressed with how well and how quickly the children settled and have been WOWED by their learning!


During Autumn Term 2 we looked at OWL BABIES AND NOCTURNAL ANIMALS. We learnt all about the animals that hibernate, light and dark, night and day.

Spring Term

During Spring Term 1, we delved into space! The children enjoyed learning about the different planets, star constellations and the role of an astronaut. We enjoyed texts such as 'The Way Back Home' and 'Aliens Love Underpants.' We made aliens, a space centre and even our own astronaut helmets!

When gathering ideas for their next topic, the children expressed a keen interest in animals. After some debate, it was decided that the children would learn about farm animals! During the term, the children found out about all the different farm year animals and the job of the farmer. They looked at the process of changing the state of a material and made some yummy ice-cream and butter which we used to make some jam sandwiches!

Summer Term

During the first part of the Summer Term, we looked at SUPERHEROES! The children enojyed making superhero capes and masks and have enjoyed reading the stories of 'Max the Midnight Superhero,' 'Superworm' and 'Supertato!' We talked about what makes a superhero a superhero and learned about the real life superheroes in our community.

Our final topic of the year is the seaside. We have lots of exciting learning opportunites ahead of us., inclduing a trip to the beach! The children will be focusing on mastering the Early Learning Goals and getting ready for Year 1 next year.
