Seahorse 2019-2020

Hello and welcome back! What a brilliant first week back we have had with our new Seahorse Class! My name is Miss White. Mr Neal and I are the Seahorse class teachers. We also have Mrs Moore and Mrs Postlethwaite, who are the class teaching assistants. The children have all come back to school amazingly, have picked up our routines quickly and are already settling in so well! We have enjoyed getting to know each other and look forward to a fantastic year together.


We are going to upload a virtual 'meet the teachers' video, so next week we will let you know when this is online. The video will give you advice about reading, homework and other questions normally asked at this time of the year. If you have any questions before then, we can chat before or after school outside the classroom door. Please have a read of our curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser, which has been emailed to you, to find out about our new topic next week. I will put them above this paragraph and send them out on paper.


We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year,

The Seahorse Team

That's a wrap! I can't believe we're already here! It is a real shame that we didn't get the full year together that we planned but the children have been brilliant regardless. It has been lovely spending the last two days of term with our Year 2 children.  I know they will all do amazingly in their Junior Schools and wish them the best of luck for the future! Don't forget to check out their leavers video on the Eling Infant School Youtube channel. I look forward to having my Year 1 children back as Year 2s in September. Have a fantastic summer and stay safe!



I have been so proud this week of the children who have come in for our first week back after the school closure. They have come in happy and keen to learn and have adjusted to the changes we have made in school so well. Thank you to their parents and carers who have helped support the children with these changes. The current world we live in is very different from what everyone is used to and for the children to come in as brilliantly as they have has been amazing. WELL DONE SEAHORSES!


I have noticed that since lockdown we, as a class, are not reading at home as much as we were. Please try and spend ten minutes a night hearing your child read. Reading is a fundamental life skill and the more you read, the easier it becomes.


Thank you for your continued support.

Miss White

On our last day of the Easter term, we held a 'challenges' afternoon. Teachers versus children. The teachers came second, but we all had a brilliant last day!

We would just like to say a big thank you to everyone associated with Eling Infant School and Nursery. These are very tough times but we have had a fantastic week with our classes. Please keep visiting the website for home learning ideas and for any updates. Also, check your emails regularly for important information and daily activities. Thank you for all of your support!

The children looked amazing in their costumes for World Book Day today! Thank you to all of the adults who came in to read with the children and for your continued support with reading at home.

Kwame was fantastic during our African hook day! The children have been inspired to learn more about Africa!

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a great half term. We have now started our Africa topic and we have had a brilliant hook with Kwame coming in who is from Ghana. The children have done African printing, dancing, drumming and story telling and had a brilliant day. They are now keen to learn more about Africa! Please have a look at some of the photos above.

What a fantastic ending to our topic about bodies. It was a shame we couldn't go for our run but it was great to see so many parents come in to see their learning. This topic has been huge in showing the children how to live a healthy lifestyle. Please keep these values going at home, such as doing exercise together and eating healthily. I hope everyone has a great half term. Please keep reading as much as possible and go over their keywords.

What a brilliant, busy half term we've had! With 2 Nativity shows, a music concert, Christmas parties, visiting the church, and making cards and calendars, the children have worked so hard and I am so proud of them. Thank you to all parents and carers for your continued support over the festive period. Have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and I look forward to seeing everyone in 2020!

What a great half term! I am so proud of everyone in the class. The first half term is often a huge change for children, yet they have all been brilliant with learning the new routines. Thank you parents and carers for all your hard work with reading, doing keywords and the hold a sentence homework. I hope everyone has an amazing half term and a well earned rest. Please read our curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser so that you can find out what we will be learning next half term.

We had a great walk around Eling looking for a location to release the Bog Baby back into the wild. We are very lucky where we live and is was enjoyable seeing what features we have in Eling. Our natural features, such as the river and forest, makes Eling a good place to release the Bog Baby.

Autumn 1 - The Bog Baby curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser.

Welcome back!!! What a great start to the new academic year! The children have been brilliant learning the new routines, especially the year 1 children. You should have all received an email regarding our new topic, which is called "The Bog Baby". The curriculum leaflet and knowledge organiser will let you know about all our learning this half term and how you can help at home. If you have any concerns, worries or questions, please don't hesitate to ask in the mornings or after school.


In our team, there is Miss White, the class teacher and two teaching assistants, Miss Russell and Mrs Moore.
