Year 1 have been looking at the book ‘Knock Knock Open the Door’. After reading the story and discussing what animal was behind each door we then worked in groups to mind map who could be behind the last door. The children came up with some wonderful ideas including a polar bear, a bee and even a superhero! The children then wrote their predictions in their books.
On Wednesday 27th November Year 3 were very lucky and had the opportunity to go to Barclays Bank in Northwich.
We completed lots of different activities, to start we had to work as a team to see who could build the tallest structure with lego, Isaac, Thomas, Oliver and Alfie’s team won – well done boys!
We looked at how to stay safe on the internet and made sure we knew the correct ages to access different social media platforms.
We watched a video of children using a very old computer – it was like a box. Mrs Davies, Mrs Wood and Mrs Daley all remembered the olden days where these were the only computers that existed!
We had a tour of the offices and saw people doing their jobs and we also had the added bonus of seeing the Premier League Trophy!
This morning the children invited their parents into school for Stay and Play.
The activities were all based around the area of Communication and Language and Phonics.
We finished our Stay and Play session with Rhyme Time with the parents to celebrate National Nursery Rhyme Week!
This week we have been very lucky and have had Mrs Barnes for baking. We decided to go with the theme of Christmas and baked gingerbread biscuits in the shape of gingerbread men and snowmen. We made the biscuits first and when they’d cooled we decorated them with icing and Christmas 🎄 bits and bobs.
They look amazing and tasted delicious too.
This week Year 1 have been looking at how we ask questions. As our topic is animals and we have been looking at the story ‘The Lion Inside’ we thought it was important to pretend to be a mouse and ask the mouse some very important questions. We asked the mouse things like ‘Why are you on my rock?’ and ‘What do you like to eat?’
last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.
It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.
On Wednesday morning in Class 3, instead of Mrs Daley being the teacher for the whole Maths lesson, Vayun, Isaac and Thomas stepped in. They each worked with a group for a short period of time to support with their Maths learning, they did a fantastic job and the rest of the class enjoyed it too.
Well done boys, it was excellent to see you showing the other children in the class the strategies you use.
To finish our week off in Year 3 we have been very energetic and done PE in the hall. We have made use of our fantastic new walls. The children all had a turn of clear out and Mr Rowe took down the children’s scores after 30 seconds so now we can hopefully see week on week improvements.
The rest of us did some moving in different ways through the cones and aiming using bean bags.
Such a busy week in Year 3!
