Let’s find out what our amazing children have been up to this week:
This week, the Nursery have continued to learn about minibeasts. To end their exciting minibeast topic, the children have enjoyed a special Bug Ball! There has been dancing, lots of creative activities and party games in abundance! The children came to school dressed as minibeasts and they all looked terrific. Thank you for your continued support in this. Their costumes were amazing! The teachers are also very proud of how well the Mickeys are changing and dressing independently for PE. They are definitely getting ready for Reception!
There was a very exciting start to the week in Reception. The children followed instructions to make a gingerbread man but it wasn't a regular gingerbread man! The children used a range of cutters to make an innovated gingerbread man. In Writing, the children used their new character in their own story. On Tuesday, the children made rafts in Forest School; it is lovely to stand back and watch the children confidently working as teams!
The Year 1 Dinosaurs have concluded their work on the story ‘Wild’ this week. They have planned and written some lovely endings to the story, adding some amazing adjectives to put their own personal twist on it. In Maths, the children have been exploring position and direction, using physical objects to help them to describe their locations using key vocabulary. In Science, the dinosaurs have been looking at the features of fish, reptiles and insects and grouping them accordingly. Ask your child the differences between each animal group; we are sure you will be amazed by their answers!
This week in Year 2, the children have been introduced to the magical, kind BFG! The children have been exploring the personality of the BFG and what makes him so different to all the other horrid giants. In Maths, the children have been learning to tell the time in multiples of 5 and have been looking at durations of time.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Very best wishes,
Mrs. Moran, Mrs. Brandrick and Miss Simpson
