14th February - Week 6 - Spring 1
The RNLI came to visit us this week to talk about water safety, at the beach and near rivers. The session was so active, with children acting out how to keep themselves safe if they had a problem in water.
6th February - Spring Term 1 so far...
26th January - Week 3 - Spring Term 1
This week, the children have loved experiencing playing with toys from the past. Thank you to everyone who brought in toys from parents/ grandparents for the children to explore. The children were able to discuss the differences between modern and old toys.
In Maths this week, we have been learning to compare numbers to 50 using greater than and less than signs, while consolidating partitioning numbers into Tens and Units. Some children also challenged themselves with 3 digit numbers... Wow!
In English this week, our story was called Dogger by Shirley Hughes. The children loved this story. They were so engaged while finding out where Dogger had gone missing, we were able to discuss in detail the feelings of the main character, Dave, when he lost his toy, while drawing upon their own experiences and feelings of similar situations.
12th January 2020 - Week 1 - Spring 1
Welcome back to Spring term 1 and a new year.
Happy New Year!
This week, we have dived straight into new learning. The children have been learning about numbers to 50, the hundred square and tens and units in our Maths lessons. This term we will be looking at the 'History of Toys' and their homework this week is to talk to family members (parents and grandparents) about the toys they used to play with when they were younger. Were they different? What materials were they made from? Where did you play with these toys? The children have then been challenged to write a sentence about their family member's favourite toy.
Please could all children have their PE kit in school at all times, as we have an extra PE session on top of our usual Wednesday afternoon and a water bottle in school daily.
