My name is Mrs Coleman, I teach Snettisham Class and I am responsible for leading the Early Years Foundation Stage. I have a passion for Early Years and believe strongly that children learn best through play  and when allowed to experience the world around them in a hands on approach. I am well known for making a mess! Corn flour, jelly, slime, gloop, mud, dinosaur poop and alien snot… we explore it all!
Outside of school I enjoy baking and walking my two Labradors on the beach (not at the same time!)


It’s Friday!!

Posted on Friday, July 10th, 2020

We have made it to the end of a very wet week. How has everyone been?

This week you have been thinking about the story ‘How to grow a dinosaur’ and everyone has been very quiet indeed.

Thank you to Violet who sent me some pictures of her learning. You have been very busy, well done!

Have a lovely weekend.

Celebrating learning!

Posted on Friday, July 3rd, 2020

Wow, it has been a good week for Snettisham Class sending me information and pictures of their learning!

The children in Blue Bubble have been practicing their writing based around the story of Paper Dolls. Look at the lovely letter formation…

Scarlett has been busy at home practicing her Power Maths and handwriting. Well done Scarlett.

Callum has been working on his home learning grid tasks. He has been a very busy bee!

Violet has been working hard with mum on her spelling and handwriting. She has also been enjoying lots of nature walks. I love the binoculars Violet!

I have had a very busy week at home too… there are 5 new arrivals in the Coleman household. Would you like to meet them?


Hello Reception!

Posted on Monday, June 29th, 2020

How are we all? Have you cooled down after last weeks’ heat? Did you catch any thunderstorms over the weekend?

Can you believe that we are entering into July this week? Where is this year going?

This week our learning is all about the story Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson. I have chosen the story because it is about being together even when you are apart.  The story reminds me that we are all still a special part of Snettisham Class even though we may be in school in our bubbles or staying safe at home.

Reception 29.6.20

I am still feeling nosy and would love to see more evidence of your learning a home. You can either post on Tapestry or email directly to me. I will also be calling again during the week if I missed you last week.


Fabulous Friday

Posted on Friday, June 26th, 2020

We have come to the end of a VERY hot week of learning and well done to everyone for staying sun safe! Thunderstorms are forecast for this afternoon… will they arrive at school collection time as usual?

I have had a lovely week making phone calls to lots of you at home and finding out all the lovely things you have been up to. I do love being nosy!

I had a lovely chat with Violet’s mummy and I know that Violet is working hard on her numbers using a chalk board. Well done Violet! I’ve also heard  that there’s so many paintings and drawings being made that there is no need for wallpaper in their house!

Callum has been learning alongside his big brothers and is also turning into a sneaky laptop ninja, leaning how to log on to his favourite games unaided. Cheeky Callum!

Leia has been working hard with her whole family to create a folder of work that I can’t wait to see!

Theodore has been busy moving house and has been making the most out of the extra family time.

Devon has had a super time off but is now missing his friends, he is hoping to join one of our lovely bubbles at school soon.

Freya has been learning and having fun with Harry… here they are cooling off!

If you are still staying safe at home and missed my calls this week on Wednesday and Thursday, I will try again next week for a catch up.

We cant forget the superstar learner Frankie… hottest day of the year and here he was working like a trooper!

He also seemed to enjoy my story on Monday!

Have a lovely weekend and check out the blog on Monday for more activity ideas.
