Welcome to the Pineapples!


This page will help explain some of the awesome learning taking place in our class!

On Friday the 8th of October we had a special visitor in school. Mrs Radmore dropped in to talk to us about her job. She is a pharmacist and she told us about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle through eating a balanced a diet and exercising. She also challenged us to design and make some leaflets to help educate other people in our community. So, this week we have been very busy starting our lovely leaflets which we will drop off to St. Andrews Church on Thursday the 21st of October. 

After finding out about eating healthily we visited our local outdoor public space in Noads Way and had a go at six activities to help us get fitter. It was a little bit soggy but we all had an amazing time!

We have been learning about the five main food groups: protein, oils and fats, dairy, fruit and vegetables and carbohydrates. After we worked together to find out about food traffic light labels. We found some surprising answers!

We met Jimmy last week who brought in his lunch. After meeting him we sat in a circle and talked about what we felt about what Jimmy was going to eat.

*******************PERFORMANCE ACADEMY LAUNCH****************


We here at Orchard Infants have been given such an amazing uplift from our children recently in our singing assemblies and have decided that we need to give our children the opportunity to shine and display their talents through music and song with our very own choir.


We have a fantastic new after school club that Miss Wilson is very excited to run. Her passion for performing and singing is something she loves to share with the children and our assemblies fill the school with such positivity that she and Mr Bowie have created our very own Orchard Infants Performance Academy, better known as OIPA! Miss Wilson has performed with a local pop/rock choir called En Masse and has been involved in many shows so she has a wealth of first hand experience. She also helps out with the children’s version of the choir Eminor and it is through this that she has seen the wonderful affect that music and singing has on children and can’t wait to see our very own children at Orchard Infants flourish.


Our vision is to have our OIPA children become more involved with our local community such as visiting care homes to sing carols to our elder community at Christmas, spreading the Christmas joy! We’d also love to perform at community events, fayres, and of course invite parents/families into school for special performances. We want this to be a meaningful way to connect our community and to provide cultural capital for the children involved.


We would love to encourage children to join OIPA with Miss Wilson on Thursdays after school, if you think your child would enjoy this opportunity, please don’t hesitate to sign them up, we welcome everyone!         

Here are some amazing photos from our classroom showing our brilliant home learning, our Kandinsky inspired artwork and our 'Have you Filled a Bucket Today' wall.

We really enjoy the valuable time we spend every week with Mrs Needham in our amazing library.

We had a go at using our knowledge of primary and secondary colours to mix tertiary colours.

We had a visit from Mrs K who is now an artist! she showcased some of her art to help inspire us as well as helping us to make a giant colour wheel.

We received three letters from some upset crayons who feel a little neglected and so have quit! As a result Miss Archer was upset because she couldn't find any crayons in school anywhere!

We worked interdependently to sort words which we felt would make a good friend.
