What have we been up to?

Term one 2017

 

What an exciting half term we have had so far!

 

We started school doing a treasure hunt and making wonderful bookmarks using leaves and flowers we found!

 

We learned the story of the Magic Porridge Pot and made up our own versions!

 

In Maths we have been learning all about place value, where numbers belong on a number line, and are thinking about adding and subtracting using the Part, part whole model!

 

 

In Science we have been thinking about different materials, and have experimented with hard, stretchy, soft, bumpy things and made our own instruments!

 

We learned a new song to sing, and loved performing it to you all!

 

 

Term Four

Stories Stories Stories...

We have had great fun this term learning all about different stories from around the world. We have compared these stories, made the characters into puppets, experimented with materials to help characters if they needed it in the future and so much more! We also took part in some great Easter fun in the last few afternoons of school :-)

Aliens HAVE landed and we have been making them pants!

 

After discovering the aliens have landed in the school field... and then finding out that they came here for underpants... We trialed and tested LOADS of different materials to see which would be the best for us to make the alien's the PERFECT pair of pants.

This week was Anti-bullying week 2016. We watched a few clips from the Anti-bullying website that showed some characters being bullied, we talked about how we might feel in this situation and then made a poster to help visitors to our school know what to do if they see bullying. Check out our poster by scrolling down below. Here we are fighting evil with our new anti-bullying masks during Anti Bullying week 2016:

Term one

What have we been up to?

 

We have been practising our number bonds to ten this term.... LOTS! Here is a great video that we found to help us remember those challenging pairs:

 

Number Pairs Song

We were given the challenge recently of decorating a mask for the carnival parade. Our mask was displayed in Bridgwater town center for all to see... which was great considering how proud we were of it!

To kick start this term we have been reading the Jolly Postman (and the Twits, and a million other stories!). The Jolly Postman is the story we have chosen to be our focus story for Theme and English. We have so far pretended to be the characters twice. The first time we had to not tell anyone who we were and then give our friends clues. And today we had great fun outside acting out the story in three different groups. take a look at some of our acting photos below - Miss S tried to get most of them in action (a few are for the camera as she is not always great at this!)

Our sound-scape for Goldilocks party!

Thought I would leave this one on here - Sorry again if the children sing it every day all day.... just keep telling yourself - it's all about the learning :-)
