Let’s find out what our amazing children have been up this week:
This week in Nursery, the children have been busy preparing for their special lady assembly. We think you will be very proud of your child! Don't forget your tissues! In English, the children have listened to the story ‘Owl Babies’; they have acted out the story using props and have talked about how the owl babies felt. From the story, the children have created play dough owls and some lovely owl artwork! In Maths, the children have been measuring different size flowers using intercubes to see how tall they were. They have also enjoyed measuring each other and working out who is the tallest and shortest. In Forest School this week, the children have been helping to create a bug hotel and have collected leaves, pine cones and twigs from the outdoor environment ready for the mini bugs to move in.
The children in Reception this week have got very creative and arty! Big art has been completed, with the children painting the farmer from Farmer Duck and using paint, glitter and feathers to make the duck. Some children worked outside to apply their Forest School knot tying skills to make the lettering out of sticks. It was lovely to see parents on Friday as the Little Library van arrived at school; the children were very excited by this! Don’t forget that the Library is a fantastic way to get books for your child, make sure you pay a visit. In Writing, the children wrote parts of the Farmer Duck story, they will then be able to design a front cover and make their own book! 3D shapes have been introduced to the children this week; see if you can spot any real life 3D shapes when you’re out and about with your child!
In Year 1, the children have been using nouns and verbs to create space poems that are out of this world! In Maths, the children have been using number lines to order and sequence numbers up to 50. In Topic, the children have continued their fantastic learning about the famous astronaut Tim Peake and have used the ‘2 Create a Story’ app to create a fact file about him! The children have also been getting very arty, creating space artwork in the theme of Paul Klee. The children have used a variety of shapes and bright colours to create some brilliant pictures of aliens, planets and rockets!
This week the Incredibles have been introduced to the mathematical world of fractions! They have been looking at what makes a whole. In English, the children have wrote a recount about their wonderful adventure of catching and looking after a Bog Baby. They have described what they did with him when they took him to school and what animal scared him when they took him for a walk. They have been acting out their different ideas and using freeze frames to discuss how the characters are feeling and what they are thinking. In Science, the children have been exploring the world of habitats and have been sorting animals into the correct home. After that, the children looked at microhabitats and went on a minibeast hunt. They have also looked at what different animals need to survive.
Very best wishes,
