Weekly Round-Up

Welcome back! What a great start to the week, the sun was shining which added to that ‘beach’ feel. We had a great day being creative and playing outdoor games. We also got very crafty and made beach huts and paper plate seagulls!

In Maths we have been counting in 10s, making equal groups and repeated addition as the start of some work on multiplication.

Our focus text in English for the next few weeks is ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by Ronda and David Armitage. We’ve been looking at the front cover and predicting what we think might happen in the story. The children have also thought of some fantastic adjectives to describe the nouns they could see!

Just a reminder, Street Tag will be back on May 1st. Until then we are checking daily with the children about how they travelled to school as part of our ‘Big Pedal’ data collection. Well done to everyone for taking part!

It has been a short and busy week!

We had lots of fun following instructions on how to make Easter egg nests and we hope the children enjoyed eating these when they got home! The children also enjoyed their Easter scavenger hunt!

Well done to all of the children who created an Easter T-shirt-it was lovely to see them parading on the playground. Such a lot of wonderful creativity on display.

Also, ‘Congratulations’ to everyone that took part in Street Tag and helped the school achieve the winning position. We are really proud of you all.

Weekly Round up

The children have worked hard this week writing their instructions on ‘How to plant a pea seed, which culminated in them actually planting their seeds on Friday! Hopefully with some sunshine and water they will grow as well as some of the bean seeds did that we have seen this week.

In Maths we have continued with some work on addition and subtraction but we have looked at the concept through problem solving. The children have been looking at the important words and phrases that help them decide whether it is a addition or subtraction number sentence.

In reading we have been focusing on individual reading, since our return to school to ensure all children are on the correct level. Bug club links into our school reading colours so provides extra books for you to read.. If you use the bug club books please write these in your reading diary so they will be added to our reading raffle count on Friday.

We were very excited as we had a visit from the chicks this week! We watched them last week as they hatched and this week when they came for a visit they were trying to fly!!

Also, we have been busy putting together our Easter Sharing film, which you will be able to watch next week-you will receive a link to view this.

Weekly Round-up

It has been another busy week; the children have been working hard and enjoying their social time with their friends.

This week in English we have continued looking at instructions with a focus on the different features and imperative verbs. The children had a great time instructing their teachers to make a sandwich. Miss Worsfold got very messy as he class forgot to instruct her to use the knife to spread the butter!!

In Maths the children have been revisiting place value to 50 and comparing numbers using less than, greater than and equal to. We have done lots of active maths outside and around the classroom and it has been great to see lots of smiles and teamwork!

The reading raffle has started up again this week and was won by a child in class 3! Please remember to try and listen to your child read at least three times each week and record this in their reading diary. We take the reading diaries in on a Friday morning and those who have read at least three times get entered into the KS1 reading raffle. The raffle is drawn on a Thursday morning during the KS1 assembly and the winner selects a book to keep.

Weekly Round-up

What a great week it has been to welcome the children back to school, despite the not so brilliant weather! The children came in happily on Monday and were pleased to see their friends…and us! We have thoroughly enjoyed having the class back and being able to talk to them and listen to them in person.

Thank you again for your support during home learning and for adhering to the routines as we return to school. Just a reminder that if you need to speak to us, please call the office or drop an email to the office as we can’t talk on the door at the beginning or the end of the day – this can hinder the flow of adults leaving the premises.

This week in English the children have been introduced to our text for our work on instruction writing. – The Runaway Pea! This will link in with our DT project. We have had lots of fun reading and acting out the story and identifying verbs.

In Maths the children are revisiting place value to 50, identifying the value of each digit and how numbers can be represented to ensure it sticks in their ‘sticky knowledge’.

Hopefully you will have heard of ‘Bug Club’, which is a great resource that can be accessed at home. You should have received a username and password for your child before half term but will be sending out some more information soon.

Remember to write in your child’s reading record when you hear them read as the reading raffle will start again next week. For your child to be entered they need to be heard at least three times per week.

As part of our science focus this week we have been thinking about ‘evergreen’ and ‘deciduous’ trees. I wonder if your child can tell you the difference?

We hope that you all had a great half term and first week back to remote learning (or school for the key worker children). It has been a week of positives with the news that school will be open again for everyone on 8th March. We are really looking forward to this and also being able to see you on our second ‘live’ session next Thursday. It was great to see those who were able to attend but apologies to those of you who had some technical difficulties joining. Fingers crossed that this doesn’t happen next week.

Thank you ever so much for the emails we have received of children’s work and also the work that has been uploaded directly into Google Classroom. Please remember to ‘Hand-in’ the work, even if you haven’t got anything to upload.

In English this week, the children have started to look at a new text ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, a well-loved traditional tale. We have seen some lovely work inspired by this story. This has linked with our work in Guided Reading, where we have been looking at a different traditional tale – The Three Little Pigs.

In maths, the children have been looking at ordering numbers to 50 and counting in 2s and 5s.

The key worker children took part in Paul Wood’s karate session on Tuesday and it was good to see some familiar faces at home joining in too. We have planted our kidney beans and look forward to seeing what happens! How did you get on at home? We have also started DT this term and this week we discussed our favourite sandwiches in preparation for designing and making our own.

In English this week, the children have continued their descriptive writing work by creating their very own Wonderlands. They have thought of some fantastic adjectives and noun phrases and have put all their ideas and thoughts together to create a postcard. We really enjoyed reading these!

In maths, the children have continued to look at numbers to 50. They have been find one more and one less, looking at tens and ones and comparing these using greater than, less than and equal to. We’ve been so impressed with the objects you’ve found around your homes to help you represent numbers to 50, including lego, pencils, teddies and toy cars!

In Guided Reading, we’ve been focusing on comprehension skills. We’ve been looking closely at lots of different texts and answering different types of questions. The children have done a fantastic job at spotting the evidence in the text!

We can see that the children have been working hard at the afternoon activities too. We’ve seen some fantastic artwork inspired by Wassily Kandinsky and the children in school have had lots of fun programming Billy the BeeBot to collect toys! In Georgraphy, the children have been learning about the different continents and oceans and have produced some lovely work on this.

Well done for getting our and about using Street Tag. We are still top of the learderboard! Below are the activities Street Tag will be offering to all the players to keep active indoors and outdoors during the half-term break
