Week ending Friday 25.6.21

We had such a busy week we forgot to get many photos!  

We have started our new topic 'Who lives in a rock-pool?'  Thanks to those that have shared photos with us already, keep them coming please.

We have discovered what types of things live in the rock pools and the rest of the ocean.  Our story of the week was the though provoking Who Swallowed Stanley?  We had interesting discussions about water pollution and single use plastic.  I was proud of how conscientious the children were about caring for their environment.

Week ending Friday 18th June - Sports week


Class R did us proud!  They have really engaged and enjoyed Sports Week and have been so good at following instructions and listening well with all the different things happening.


I have added a gallery page with all the photos.

Week ending Friday 10.6.21

It has been a very warm first week of the term and we have been making the most of our outside area.  We have been writing about how to make a worm habitat and are finding more bugs now the sun is shining. In maths we have moved onto sharing and the children do not think it is fair if one person has 6 sweets and one person has 4, that's not sharing properly, we need to have an equal amount! 



Week ending 27/05/21

A busy week to end this term!  We have been learning about emotions this week as our story has been The Bad tempered Ladybird.  We have been thinking about what makes us bad tempered too.  We have been doubling in Maths as well as consolidating our teen numbers.  We have been writing speech bubbles in English and bug hunting in our CIT.  We have been learning the songs for our Maria Procession and the children behaved so beautifully that I have let them choose a reward for after half term.  I wish you a lovely half term and let's hope this sun keeps shining!


Week ending Friday 20.05.21

We were very excited by our new topic.  The Big Question for this project is 'Why do ladybirds have spots?' The children already know a lot about creepy crawlies and they are sharing their knowledge with others.

We went on a bug safari to introduce the topic but we learned that the creatures do not like the rain! We hand to hunt really hard to find some but we found lots hiding under logs in our forest school area.  


Week ending Friday 14/05/21

It was our last week of our Do Cows Drink Milk topic, our express and innovate week.


We pretended to milk a cow like we would if we worked on the farm, this was lots of fun!




We enjoyed developing our jumping skills from the climbing frame, lots of children faced their fears and were proud of jumping off.  This is a great action shot, we all thought she looked like Spiderman! 


In maths we were practicing our subtraction skills by recording our score for bowling and playing subtraction smash with the plasticine. 

We have taste tested different types of bread in preparation for designing our own loaf that we will bake today! The children are very excited to taste their own bread.

Week ending 7.5.21


We had some brilliant role play in Class R this week, this is a Frozen game!



We have been really progressing in our maths.  We have really started to use our numbers and continued to develop our knowledge of teen numbers.

The class have been loving their PE with Hayden of Dynamic sports and it's been a lovely way t spend an afternoon trying out what we have learnt. 


Week ending 29.4.21


In maths we have been working with numbers up to 20.  We have been using the part whole method to work out teen numbers.





Exciting news!! Our beans have begun to sprout!  We are very excited.  We noticed that not all of our beans have sprouted and talked about why that may be.  Some of the beans are very wet, we do love watering them ;@) We think that might be a reason some haven't grown.



We have been learning the name for baby animals.  This is Matilda with her dog and puppy.


We have classified animals too this week.  We thought about whether they were egg laying animals or if they had babies from their mummy's tummy.  We then remembered our learning about reptiles last topic and learned the new words; mammals and amphibians.  We sorted our egg laying animals into reptiles, amphibians, insects, fish and birds.  Class R were amazing at this.

Week ending 23.04.21

We have started our new topic 'Do Cows Drink Milk' and the children have impressed me with their animal sounds.  We planted our own beans and learned about the life cycle of a plant.  We wrote about our favourite farm animals and had a tricky word pig hunt. 

We had great fun with a day at Forest School too.
