Double Trouble

It has been lovely to be working outside in the sunshine this week for a change!

It Literacy we have been looking at non- fiction texts and producing some factual dinosaur writing, including headings and captions. This is in preparation for our experience outcome ‘dinosaur museum’ next week.

In maths, we have been partitioning 6 and 7 and doubling numbers up to 10.

In PE, the children timed each other to see who could run between 2 markers the fastest and then held running races along the newly painted running track.

In art, the children made models of amonites with clay, practicing their rolling and spiralling skils.

Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish

This week the children went out on a rubbish hunt for Welly Wednesday. They had great fun picking up and collecting the rubbish using litter pickers.

In Literacy, we read ‘Tom and The Island Of Dinosaurs’ by Ian Beck. The week started with the discovery of a mysterious message in a bottle. The children made their own hot air balloon baskets like Toms and pretended to fly off to dinosaur island. They made up their own fantastic adventures and wrote their stories in their literacy books.

In maths, we have been learning about addition, adding 1,2 and 3 to a given number.

Jurassic Jungle

This week we have started our Dinosaur Experience which the children are very excited about. We read the book ‘Stone Girl, Bone Girl’ – the story of Mary Anning of Lyme Regis. We have learned about dinosaurs and fossils and the children enjoyed looking closely at fossils in the classroom with the magnifying glasses. The children wrote down questions they would like to find out during our learning experience.

In maths, we have been counting in tens and estimating.

In PE, we have started a new unit on ‘Locomotion’ and this week we tried using our arms and legs in different ways to see if it makes running easier or harder.

On Welly Wednesday, children enjoyed a walk to a farm. Mrs Warbrick was very impressed at how the children remembered how to keep safe.

Celebrations

What a lovely week we have had to finish the spring term. There have been so many things to celebrate! On Monday, the children shared their Mothering Sunday news and wrote about the different ways they had celebrated the day. We all had great fun pizza-making on Tuesday. We hope you enjoyed trying the cooked pizzas at home. This activity produced lots of lovely ‘instruction’ writing where the children learned all about verbs and ‘bossy words’.

On Thursday, the children performed their Last Supper story in church as part of the school Easter Service. It was a super way to prepare for the Easter celebrations ahead.

We are hoping that Friday will be just as much fun and if we’re very lucky, we might even get a visit from The Easter Bunny!

Allsorts

It’s been a busy and mixed week with lots of interesting activities going on including preparations for our Easter Service and Mothering Sunday, bread making, a visit from the school nurse and a cross country running competition.

In maths we have been learning about money and identifying coins. The children enjoyed ‘paying’ for their snack everyday.

Fruit and Veg

This week we have been looking at the work of the artist Archimboldo and creating our own fruit and veg portraits. The children also produced some beautiful still life paintings and photographs.

In Literacy, we have made up our own version of The Gingerbread Man, replacing him with a Pizza Man! Children wrote about the characters in their stories and thought up various sticky endings for their poor pizza. The children enjoyed making and decorating their own gingerbread men this week.

In maths we have been comparing numbers, reading numbers to 20 and matching numerals to sets of objects.
