Welcome to Olive class

Children: 9 boys and 1 girl

Staff: Clare, Julie & Liz



Olive class have settled in after Christmas really well and continued to work hard. This term, we have been focusing on our new topic, Julia Donaldson and all of her stories. We have loved learning all about her stories, it has helped us with our reading, writing and comprehension skills as well as doing some amazing art work based around the gruffalo, monkey puzzle, room on the broom, squash and a squeeze and stick man. For our topic, we have made some incredible animals, a house and a witch using lots of different techniques including painting, drawing and collage. We have also been working on our memory and remembering activities that we have done at school and at home as well as some of the stories we have been reading during topic and narrative sessions. 

We have also continued going to forest schools and enjoying being outdoors. Olive class have been on lots of different places during forest school such as hayrack farm, dukes drive and delamere forest on the hunt for the gruffalo. During these sessions, we are trying to learn very important skills such as making a shelter, starting a fire and making our own snacks/hot drinks. We have also been taking regular trips to St Luke’s cafe and the shops and paying for our own items using our wallets/purses and getting toast or even buying treats for the Olive class ‘Treat Friday’ 🙂


We don’t just work though, we also like having fun with our friends 🙂


Olive class staff also like to get involved in the fun 🙂
