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!

District hockey champions!

Huge congratulations to all the Y5/6 children who competed in the district hockey finals today.  One team placed fourth overall and the other team came in first place with a fabulous score of 10-2 against Codicote School.  This makes them the District Hockey Champions and they now go on to compete in the county championship in July.  WELL DONE!  Another fantastic achievement.

Spring 2 Week 2

Another busy week in Class 3 has flown by!!!
This week Class 3 have been enjoying learning some interesting facts about Christopher Columbus. Next week the children will be writing their own fact sheets on Christopher Columbus and his expeditions. If you wish, you could research some facts about Christopher Columbus at home. (This is only if you have time and would like to have a discussion with your child about what they already know and what they wish to find out.)
This week we also wrote an explanation report on the lifecycle of a frog and we made tally charts and pictograms using data we collected in class. 
 
As it is assessment week next week, we will not be sending home new spellings or new homework on Tuesday.
 
We hope you have a lovely weekend!

Spring 2 Week 2

We've had a great week and we have definitely had a busy one! 

We very much enjoyed the pancake race on tuesday and world book day on thursday! There's also the disco tonight - woop! 

I've been very impressed with the children's story writing this week, a cinderella inspired story. Can't wait to read them all properly. 

In maths we have looked at multiplication, arrays and area. The children are superstars at this! 

We've had music today - singing songs in the round! I think they might be stuck in our heads all weekend! 

Have a good weekend

Miss Gale
