Week Commencing: 29.03.2021

 

Nursery

 

What an Eggciting week we have had this week. The children have all joined in to create an amazing video for our Virtual Easter singathon. They have made all the teachers very proud and I hope they have made you proud too. We can't thank our fantastic families enough for the amount we have raised. Keep a look out for the final amount raised on class dojo. The children have already said they would like a beach party day and we would love to use the money to revamp our mud kitchen and create a potting/digging area for the children. The children have enjoyed showing off their wonderful Easter bonnets that they have made at home. We were wowed by your creativity. Thank you again for your continued support. The Mickeys have been making Easter nests, creating lots of easter art and listening to the Easter story. In Forest schools the children went on an egg hunt using the vocabulary under, over, between, on top, in etc. We have been making use of the lovely weather this week to spend as much time as possible outside. The children have made their own obstacle courses and used the guttering to create their very own Water wall. They predicted which piece of guttering the water would flow through the fastest.

Well hasn’t this week been fantastic! The weather has put smiles on all our faces but we certainly didn’t have the sun on Monday, we had the wind! The children had to use their Goofy Gumption as the wind tried to prevent the fire taking hold. Luckily we adapted and the children got to enjoy their jacket ‘Supertato’! I’m sure you’ll agree Supertato has been a huge hit, the unit ended by the children writing their own version of the story! The sunshine began to shine and the children spent time outside playing games which was lovely to see. Thursday was ‘well-being’ day, the children made cakes, had an egg hunt and took part in many more ‘egg-citing activities, well deserved I think! Well done Reception, you have taken everything in your stride this term and been real stars. 

Year 1

What an amazing week to the Spring term! The children have had so much fun writing the story of the three little pigs. They have been trying super hard to add –ed to the end of verbs to make them past tense. It is tricky, but all the children used their Goofy gumption. Check out some super examples of Class Dojo! The children have also tried really hard to read and check their sentences to make sure that they make sense. In Maths, the children have been looking at different methods to subtract and also using different equipment. In Science, the children have been looking at parts of a plant and what plants need to grow. We have been observing the beans that have been put into the window and have also planted sunflowers! We have ended the week with a super fun Easter day. The children have made Easter cards, cakes and done lots of arts and crafts. We have also celebrated April Fools Day by looking at funny poetry and making each other laugh

Year 2

What a super week the Incredibles have had! In maths, we have been learning about odd and even numbers and whether we can share these between two equal groups. We have concentrated this week on sharing and grouping into equal groups of 2, 5 and 10. We then used our 'Goofy Gumption' to learn how to find missing numbers in multiplication number sentences and how to calculate the inverse operation. Although, the concept proved very tricky, we are so proud of how the children tackled this skill using concrete, pictorial and abstract methods. In English, the children have been looking at a new genre of poetry. We have been focussing on writing a list poem titled, 'In the jungle'. We have worked really hard using WOW vocabulary to not only describe what the animals look but also what they are doing around the jungle. We have concentrated on the word classes; nouns, verbs and adjectives in order to improve our writing. Our fantastic children then turned into poets to write their very own! But wait... we didn't just finish there... we then performed our poems to the whole class and blew everyone away with how we used intonation in our voices to interest our audience! We had a super PE lesson this week; using different skills including striking, fielding and catching. We also tried our hand in computing at using a search engine to answer questions we may have about the world around us - we really have some budding ICT superstars. As we are approaching Easter, we learned about the Easter story and how the 'egg' is represented, following this we used natural resources to decorate our own Easter egg - it was so much fun.

Well done for another amazing week of MAGIC learning. We are all so very proud of you. We hope you have a lovely break and look forward to all the fun learning we have planned for the summer term.
