We have started reading our new book ‘Stick Man’ in Year 2 and after practicing reading through our story map with some great actions, we went on a hunt for Stick Man outdoors. We searched all over for the best ‘Stick Man’ sticks to create his body, arms, legs and super long nose! We love being outdoors exploring our environment and can’t wait to create our very own Stick Men next week.
This afternoon Year 1 stopped what they were doing and enjoyed a good book. First we finished off our class novel, then we had time to read on our own or with a friend. It was great!!!
In Early Years, we have started our new book, Grandad’s Secret Giant. We have learned lots of new vocabulary, discovered an enormous tooth brush and have been making traps to see if we can catch our own giant! The children have been drawing pictures of the giant with huge pencils too!0 Comments
We have been learning all about Remembrance Day this week in Year 2 and have produced some beautiful artwork and pieces of writing as a sign of respect and gratitude to all our fallen soldiers. You should be very proud of yourselves Year 2; what a wonderful tribute.
We have been learning so much through imaginative play this week, using small world outdoors and in construction, talking about the size of the things we use and build. We also had a great time pretending to be dogs, and used lots of positional language taking part in dog agility games!0 Comments
We are delighted to see our friends back in school today and have been having fun in the sun playing with numbers and enjoying books, as well as writing letters and numbers in spooky slime indoors! What other spooky goings-on will there be this week?0 Comments
The teachers are so happy with how the children are learning and playing together. The children work calmly inside, using play dough, glitter trays and role play areas to learn, while outdoors they are developing their physical skills and enjoying the natural world.0 Comments
In music lessons recently, following on from Black History Week last month, Year 2 have been learning a traditional, spiritual American song called Wade in the Water. It was first recorded in 1901 and has been covered lots of times since, even becoming associated with the civil rights movement in the U.S. in the 1960s. Year 2 recorded their own version in today’s music lesson; have a listen and let us know what you think!0 Comments
Year 3 have been investigating how opaque objects create shadows by not letting light pass through them. We explored how shadows change when the object’s distance from the light source changes, so we needed great teamwork and precise science and maths skills for our measuring and recording! Great work, Year 3!0 Comments
Here are a few photographs of the amazing maths work we have been doing this half term. We’ve estimated how many giant steps it takes to get from one side of the playground to the other, worked out how many tens and ones are in two digit numbers, ordered numbers to a hundred, practiced our number bonds, counted in 2s, 5s, 3s and 10s from different numbers and much more. Year 2 have worked so hard since starting in September and they have learnt so many new skills already. We can’t wait for next term!0 Comments
