Incredible Ice Creams and Marvellous Maths!

Reception enjoyed a wonderful “Maths Party” morning today! We have been learning about coins and prices, and have made our own ice cream shop role play area this week, so today we were delighted to experience the real thing! We sorted coins, took on the roles of shopkeepers and cashiers, and served and paid for real ice creams. We even kept a tally chart of how many children chose to have sprinkles! What a yummy way to learn!

Knock-out time in our World Cup competition!

Year 4 and Reception’s top two groups met today in the first knock-out stage of our World Cup penalty shoot out competition! We had great fun and the children showed wonderful sporting attitudes. Egypt (from Reception) and Portugal (from Year 4) are through to the quarter finals! Well done everyone!

Fantastic fun at the farm!

Reception had a WONDERFUL day today at Church farm. We went on a tractor ride, fed alpacas and sheep, met geese and collected eggs from the hen house. Then we held some gorgeous guinea pigs! We enjoyed our lunch, then had a play in the park, and had great fun at the indoor beach and with the pedal tractors. We asked lots of good questions, and learnt such a lot! Have a look at our pictures.

Action shots!

These children are coming on leaps and bounds! Take a look at our fantastic jumping. We were measuring how far we could jump by counting the bricks, then trying to jump even further!

The Three Little Pigs and lots of friends!

This morning lots of our families and friends came to join us to celebrate how we have been learning through the story of “The Three Little Pigs”. We enjoyed showing them how we do character interviews and write news reports in our Newsroom, designed and built houses and dens with a variety of materials, and created our own game called “Chimneys and ladders”. This helped us to act as the story characters and to practice our maths skills! We will be having more fun at 2 o’clock!

Party time!

We enjoyed a little garden party today to join in with the celebrations for the royal wedding at the weekend. We made our own sandwiches, and had a few crisps and cakes too! Over the weekend children will be writing their own news reports.

He’s still on the loose!

The Big Bad Wolf has still not been caught! We have been reading and writing news reports about his antics – climbing onto the roof of the brick house and trying to get down the chimney! This afternoon we built more walls and a chimney, and took on the role of reporters, interviewing the wolf as he tried to get into the house!

More fun learning in the sun!

We’ve been making the most of the lovely weather again. Developing our upper body strength and fantastic physical skills helps us to become great writers!

The tallest chimney EVER!!!

We had a great time this afternoon creating a huge chimney for the Big Bad Wolf to climb down! Then we had fun acting out the story again. We can’t wait for further construction challenges next week, and finding out more about 3D shapes!

Super shapes!

We had great fun today investigating how we could make 2D shapes with our bodies in PE, a bit like using Kapla blocks last week! Have a look at the super shapes we made!
