Week Beginning – 29.4.19

This week in our Maths work the children have been learning about the differences between flat and solid shapes.

The children have learnt about cubes, cuboids, spheres, cylinders, cones and pyramids.

The children have then made models with solid shape building bricks.  They made houses, castles, robots, animals, boats and trains.

Love Books Club

This week we have looked at RJ Palacio, ‘ We’re All Wonders’.

We thought about how all people are different and unique. We talked about the story, being kind and what made us wonders.

Next week we are going to look at The Twits and make up some fun tricks.

 

As Time Goes By Club

Today the children in Reception went along to our first ‘As Time Goes By’ Club.

We are taking the children to work with older members of our community at Trinity Methodist Café every month for a range of stories, music, crafts and activities.

We began our session by giving the older people a small gift and postcard we had made yesterday, we then all made pictures of ourselves – young and old.

We enjoyed our snack time and finished our club with Rhyme Time singing songs and rhymes.

Easter Fun In Nursery

In Nursery we have made lots of lovely Easter treats. We began by making Easter nests by breaking the chocolate and then mixing in the cornflakes. We then carefully spooned the mixture into the cake cases and sprinkled chocolate over the top. The children then used the left over chocolate to create Easter shaped treats.

 

 

This week in Reception – w/b 18.3.19

Some of the children have had the opportunity to work with our school therapy dog – Coco.

In our Maths work this week we have been using the part part whole representation to solve addition number problems.

In our Science work we have been continuing with learning about different materials.  We have learnt about what objects are magnetic.  We went on a magnetic hunt using magnets.

 

 

Science celebration assembly

On Wednesday morning we had an assembly to share and talk about all of the learning and activities we had done throughout science week.

It was really interesting to hear and see what a fantastic job all of the classes had done. Mrs Daley was particularly impressed with the way there were lots of cross curricular links to all of the other subjects including English, Maths, PE, forest schools and many more. Thank you to everybody for all of their hard work and to the children for sharing their fantastic learning.

A huge well done to our competition winners! Ethan from reception, Zac from class 4 and Cesare from class 4. The competition was to design and make a poster for British science week linked to the topic of  journeys. We had some fantastic entries. If you didn’t notice the competition make sure you check on future newsletters for this information.
