This week, we have read the story Each Peach Pear Plum. We learned about the queen and about the platinum jubilee. We enjoyed playing in the castle role play area and creating our own castles. We have also been mixing colours.
This week, we have been looking at the story of ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We explored loose parts to create a gingerbread man. We also played some gingerbread man themed maths games and explored magnets and hooks on the cranes/lorries to carry a load.
Last week, we continued to focus on the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We discovered paw prints in our classroom and thought they might belong to the big, bad wolf. We created wanted posters to find the wolf and made traps. The children enjoyed sticking their posters up around the classroom for others to see.
This week, we have enjoyed looking at the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We made baskets, explored red paint and looked for red objects outside. We have also started our RWI phonics and learnt how to say ‘m’ and ‘s’
Last week, the children in nursery enjoyed the story ‘Supertato’. We made traps for the evil pea, created our own supertato and explored printing with vegetables.
Year One have worked so hard this half term… All of the staff are so proud of how amazing they have been settling back into school life and throwing themselves into their learning. We have been extremely lucky to be able to regularly visit the Outdoor Classroom, this has helped to inspire our learning and is something the children have really enjoyed.
Jörmungandr Austr bought their enthusiasm for all things Vikings to our school and we had an amazing day of learning! The children learnt so much about the daily life of Vikings; they really enjoyed studying artefacts, learning shield manoeuvres and getting first hand experience of handling weapons. It certainly created a real buzz for our new history topic this half term and we can’t wait to get started.
This half term we have been learning about Climate Change and have been inspired by the monsters from the book ‘Planet SOS’. We created our own climate change poems about the despicable Trash-Kong. Children included poetic features such as: hyperbole, alliteration, metaphor, simile, personification and onomatopoeia. They built their very own ‘Poetic Toolkits’ to support in their writing.
Year 2 have been enjoying their weekly visits to the outdoor classroom. Today they sang a song about conkers and made conker characters.
Today we hosted our very first whole-school workshare. Thank you to parents and carers for coming along and helping to celebrate all of our pupils’ amazing learning so far! We will be hosting a work-share towards the end of each half-term. We will keep everyone updated with future dates in our monthly school newsletter.
In year 1, we have been looking at seasons. We have been exploring the creatures and changes that we find in Autumn. During our activity times, children have been making crafts using different resources and skills.
Look at the grit and determination we needed in maths today to complete this domino game!
Look at the fun we had with Ms Geschke today in the outdoor classroom!
Year 2 have been learning about why light is an important symbol in Judaism. We have learnt about the Maccabees, the festival of Hanukkah and about the importance of the candles on a menorah.
Today in Year 3 we performed the song we had been learning (let your spirit fly) and looked at composing skills. We recapped quavers, crotchets and minims before attempting to write them.
