The Beast of Bredon!

This half term, Willow children have started working on a new topic in English – the mysterious sightings of a large, cat-like creature in the countryside and villages around Bredon Hill. They’ve already created their own animal factfiles, which will be followed by an ‘eye-witness account’ and a newspaper front page. There’s great excitement about this in the classroom. Is it real or just a myth? What do you think?

Leaflets about our wonderful school

Last term, children from Willow class created leaflets about a subject close to their hearts – Ashton under Hill First School! First of all, they explored a whole range of leaflets to identify the main features. Then, they produced a plan showing what they’d like to put on each page. Finally, they chose what information they’d like to include – our classes, teachers, clubs and so much more. The children really enjoyed writing these leaflets, and made a very good job of them. Well done, one and all.

Sock puppets

Have you ever made a sock puppet?

It’s very simple!

It will be a good sock puppet if you follow these instructions carefully.

First you need a clean sock for the body. Now you need to cut triangles for the scales and put on googly eyes.

What an amazing sock puppet that is!

The amazing world wide web


The internet is amazing and constantly developing but it can be dangerous. It gives great experiences. You can have fun playing games which even let you communicate with friends, however you can also get spam messages which can cause viruses. If you are careful, it can be a great place for research. It is definitely worth a look!

Hawthorn Class have been learning about the famous Scientist Mary Anning.

Mary Anning was known as the fossil hunter because she was very good at finding fossils. She found an unknown marine creature now known as the Ichythosaur. Mary lived in Lyme Regis, Dorset with her family. One day she found a dog and named it Trey. Her father taught her how to find fossils and how to extract them from rock.
