Spring 2, Week 3

What a great week it has been in Class One! Continuing with our theme of ‘space’, we have read the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ this week which has inspired lots of fun learning!

We looked at illustrations of all of the aliens and talked about what we might do if we met one and this led to fantastic alien pictures, complete with written labels. We even did some tricky ‘Year One’ work, writing their own character profile of an alien, using sentence starters and conjunctions such as and, also, but, however and because; they were great fun to read! In maths this week, we have been searching for and creating our own patterns. We looked around the classroom for patterns in our environment and noted some of the shapes we could see. Many of us found it really tricky to name some of the 3D shapes we saw, so we will be working on this over the coming weeks. Feel free to also test us on our shape knowledge at home too. One of our favourite lessons this week was a measuring lesson where we went out onto the playground for a pants pinging competition! We loved seeing how far we cold ping them and measured the distance using metres, centimetres and footprint, it was great fun!

Next week, we will be doing lots of outside learning throughout the week, to look for signs of spring in the environment. In Reception, we believe there is no such thing as the wrong weather, only the wrong clothes, so if your child does not already have wellies left in school each day, they may wish to bring them in for next week! We will be doing lots of scientific activities such as, looking at changes in the trees, comparing and measuring the sizes of leaves, hunting for animal hibernation spots and looking at some of the plants and flower which have started to grow in our nature area. If your child hasn’t already, you may send some wellington boots into school for them to wear throughout the week. On Wednesday, we will be taking part in our school science day too and look forward to trying out all the different science workshops run around school.

Enjoy your weekend!
