Week beginning 9th November 2020
This week, the children have been studying poetry in English. The children looked at Michael Rosen's top tips for performing poetry and took that on board to do their own poetry performances. The children performed a 'Firework poem' as a class and then wrote their own versions.
Week Beginning 28th September
At the beginning of the week, we went to the forest school area and looked at the different trees and plants. We were given a leaf identification chart and worked with a partner to search for different leaves in the area. As a class, we found holly leaves, birch leaves and lots of others.
In English, we have been working hard on our final writing outcome for our reading book 'Emily Brown and the Thing'. We have had lots of fun making a comic book version of the story.
Week Beginning 21st September
We have been incredibly busy this week. We got mucky and messy in the forest school area this week and created our own clay faces. Check out the pictures on our 'Class Gallery' page. In maths, we finished our unit on place value and will begin to look at addition and subtraction next week.
Week beginning 14th September
We have been having even more fun exploring the forest school area this week. We all had a go at making 'sticky nature bracelets' (even Miss Smith had fun making one). We searched for different natural materials in the area and then used double-sided sticky tape to stick them to a bracelet band. Children used flowers that they found, grass, autumnal leaves, bits of stick, rocks and even a snail shell!
We also had lots of fun in PE this week. The children had to solve a bit of a mystery! They were given a list of equipment that they needed, a diagram and some picture clues. We worked out that it was an obstacle course! The children then needed to make the course and decide the rules for the game. The children all worked really well as a team. Look at our class gallery page to see some of the photos.
Week beginning 7th September
What a week it has been! All the children (and adults!) have been excited to get back to school and settle into our new routines.
We have spent lots of time in the forest school area this week. The children have had lots of fun exploring the area. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we made mandalas out of natural resources from the forest school area. The children created some beautiful mandalas! Some of the materials that the children found and used to make their creations included sticks, different coloured leaves, flowers, berries and grass.
