Our topic learning this week...

posted 15 Nov 2018, 08:42 by Rebecca Hague

We have done a number of different things in our topic learning this week. During our D&T lessons the children have worked together to make an Astronaut's breakfast...porridge. It was delicious! Today the children made fantastic animal creatures using the leaves they found during our trip to the woods!

A huge thank you to Mrs Wells for organising such a fantastic trip to Eccelsall Woods this morning. The children loved collecting signs of autumn and investigating their surroundings. A big thank you too to all the parents who came along to help - we massively appreciate your support!

We had a fantastic day on Wednesday when Kathryn from the History van came in to see the children. Kathryn trained Y1 in everything you need to become an astronaut! We practiced walking on the moon, collecting moon rocks, landing rockets……we even tried astronaut banana! 


Our maths learning this week...

posted 15 Nov 2018, 08:33 by Rebecca Hague

In our Maths learning this week we have been looking at one more and one less of a number. The children did a fantastic job at finding one more and one less and presented it beautifully in their books. We have also been practicing recognising the place value of numbers. The children completed a carousel of different activities independently; they are becoming so secure in recognising tens and ones. Well done Y1!

Thank you for your time and effort with your children's costumes and contributions which all made our Bee day such a success - Mrs Davies will be announcing how much money was raised soon...

The children enjoyed a Yoga Stars session today! If your child would like to participate in this club, it runs every Monday lunch time. Please ask at the office for more details.

The children were hard at work trying to complete more challenges today too...

And the children have been really enjoying working in Scutari Hospital, just like Florence Nightingale!



Our Learning Today - Monday 8th October

posted 8 Oct 2018, 09:24 by Aisling Farrell

We learnt a new story in English today - Zog by Julia Donaldson! We read some nouns and adjectives to describe the main characters:

In our Topic lesson this afternoon, the children were scientists and completed a labelled diagram of themselves with their body parts!

We also started our new challenges in the Continuous Provision! If the children complete a challenge, they can collect a coloured lollipop stick - the aim is to collect all 6 to make a rainbow!

Here are the challenges the children are trying this week... Can your child tell you the challenges they will try this week?


And we also have some fun choosing activities for the children to try once they have tried a challenge...
