Fruit salad

We washed our hands, selected healthy fruits and chopped them up with knives and apple corers to make yummy fruit salad today. We talked about how to use the tools safely, what to do if we dropped food on the floor, or if we coughed on the food. Then the children shared the fruit they had prepared between the bowls.

Thanks to all the parents who joined us for Mouse Club Maths and stay and play last week. It was great to see you all playfully engaging in maths with your little ones! I’d love to know how you get on at home.

Making 2D shapes

Today, we used challenge cards to make 2D shapes from lollipop sticks. We are developing our knowledge of the properties of shapes, such as the number of corners and the number of sides. Some of us can even explain the difference between a square and a rectangle!

Year 4 Making Bath Bombs!

In our last science lesson, we made our own colourful, fragrant and fantastic bath bombs! We used a range of ingredients and we had to do some careful measuring and mixing, before scooping the mixtures into the moulds.

A lovely start to International Week!

We have had a great start to International Week in Nursery and Reception, with the children enjoying learning about Poland and Polish culture. We have been making Polish cucumber dip, and can’t wait to try it later! We have also been exploring symmetry in Polish folk art called Wycinanki, making our own designs by cutting and sticking indoors, or using natural materials outside. Then we had some very special visitors! Zuzanna, Maia and Victoria came to to tell us all about going to school in Poland, read some Polish poetry and tell us about national traditional dress. Thank you so much girls! Dziękuję!

Marvellous maths and imaginative play!

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!

Year 3 Investigating Shadows

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!

Our amazing Maths work this half term…

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!
