Our Learning

Welcome to Term 5!


We hope you all had a lovely Easter break and are all feeling refreshed, ready to get back into learning!

We are very excited to be back and to see you all flourish as the year goes on. (We can't believe we are in Term 5 already! The year has gone so quickly).

Our learning for this term we will continue to practice our letter formation. We will also be developing our phonic skills, and embedding this into our sentence writing. 

In Maths we are going to be deepening our knowledge of number and extending this further.

Just a few reminders. Our PE day will continue to be on Monday so PE kits will need to be worn to school and all jewellery removed.

Also with the warmer weather approaching please do not forget water bottles. These need to be filled with water only!


We look forward to seeing you all!

End of Term 4


What a wonderful term that was! It was great to be back in class together and to see all of your smiley faces! It felt as if we had never been away! 

You have blown us away with how you have all settled back into routines, and are using all of your Minster Muscles to show you are all trying to be the best you can be. 

We are so proud of all of you! 

We are looking forward to being back for Term 5.

Have an amazing Easter break!

Welcome back Hummingbirds to term 4. Lets hope that we will all be reunited together soon back in class when it is safe for us to do so. We really miss you all and looking forward to seeing you soon. So keep them fingers and toes crossed!

For now though we have got home learning where we get to see all of your lovely, smiley faces on zoom every day at 1:30pm and lots of activities for you to enjoy with your grown-ups. Please keep sending in your photo's and emails as we really do enjoy seeing your achievements.


Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!

End of Term 3 


Well Hummingbirds, here we are at the end of term 3 and what a challenging term it has been. We are so proud of the children in Hummingbird Class showing motivation, independence, resilience, and quite frankly being total super stars! 

We have enjoyed our times on zoom and have loved seeing your faces. 

We are also impressed by the children in school and the work they have produced. We can't wait till we are all back in class together! Fingers crossed it won't be long now!


We hope you have a fantastic week off ready to kick start Term 4!


Stay safe.

Welcome to Term 3 Hummingbirds!


We would like to wish all of Hummingbirds and families a huge Happy New Year! 


Again this is not the way any of us wanted to begin another term and we can only hope that we are all back in school very soon. 

We hope that you all managed to enjoy your Christmas and that a visit from Father Christmas cheered you all up.


To begin this term some of us will be learning in school whilst some of us are learning at home. so that we can all keep in touch we will have daily Zoom sessions. This will enable us to chat with our friends and play some games. We cannot wait to hear all about your Christmas breaks.

We are looking forward to seeing you all on there. 


Times are very strange at the moment but please know that we are still here for you. If you need any support please feel free to contact us.


We are so excited to see you all soon!

Miss Ashworth and Mrs Enticknap

End of Term 2


That was another strange term for us all but yet again Hummingbirds you have made us all proud and have been amazing!

Due to the school being shut for two weeks because of Covid, we were all at home learning and having fun on our daily zoom sessions. We sure did have fun, playing games, singing songs, went on scavenger hunts around the house, drawing What Am I animals, and most importantly chatted with our friends daily! 


Once back in school, you all settled well and we begun our Christmas preparations. We created cards, decorations, put up the decorations and welcomed Eric the Elf into our class. 


We have been out in the forest and have been continuing to develop our skills in all areas of learning. 


Things have certainly been far from normal but we have all continued to try  

'to be the best we can be' 


You have all been busy Hummingbirds and you really do deserve a fun-filled Christmas with plenty of rest!  


Merry Christmas Hummingbirds! 




Term 2


Welcome back to school and to Term 2 Hummingbirds.

We had a very busy and fun Term 1 and we are now looking forward to an even more exciting Term 2!


This term we will be reading the story ‘Walking Through the Jungle’. Were you all amazed when you walked into your jungle classroom? Did you hear any jungle animals?


You have also received your very first reading book and we are sure that you will all enjoy reading these with your families. We look forward to hearing you read and to seeing you progress with your phonics.


Term 2 of course means Christmas! Things may be a little different for us all at the moment but we can assure you that this term will be full of festive fun.

Friday 16th October 


Hummingbirds, your first ever term at school is complete and it has flown by! We would like to say a HUGE well done to all of you! We are very proud. You have settled into the school routine amazingly! Such superstars!


This term we have achieved lots together, whether it be making relationships with other children and adults, or reconnecting with existing friends. We have been developing our phonic skills learning new phonemes, we have also been thinking carefully about our Minster Muscles and how we could use these throughout our school day. We are coming into school motivated to learn, we are showing teamwork by helping each other tidy up, and we are also developing our independence!


We hope you all have a fantastic half term and return to school ready to have a lot more fun and learning!

Wednesday 7th October


We have had a productive start to our week. We have been busy learning lots both in the classroom and outside area. So far we have learnt the phonemes s,a,t,p,i and we continue to look at these along with the new phoneme n.  We love watching Geraldine the Giraffe and singing the jolly phonics songs.

In Literacy we have continued to learn about Goldilocks and the Three Bears, creating lots of pictures and painting.

Maths we are increasing our knowledge of number.

We have had a very busy week so far!

What we have been learning this week....

Wow Hummingbirds we are nearly at the end of our first full week at school, and how amazing you have been! We are so proud of how all the children have adapted to their new environment, and are trying their best to show good sitting, good listening, and good looking on the carpet. 

This week in literacy we have been looking at the story of Goldilocks and the three bears, in maths we have been focussing on ‘all about the numbers’ 1, 2 and 3, and in phonics we have been learning new phonemes s,a, and t to help us begin to read and write.
