Week 6 W/B 20th May

Cultural Diversity Celebration

This week we were thinking about cultural diversity building up to our celebration day on Friday. In topic we listened to two traditional tales from around the world- one from India and one from West Africa. We thought about the similarities and differences between them and the two stories we have learnt this term The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man. We then picked our favourite and discussed our reasons. 

During Jigsaw we learnt what diversity is and how it is important to learn from each other and respect each other. We though about things that make us special and unique.

On Friday we made a cultural diversity blanket covered in pictures by everyone in the class celebrating who they are. Some children wanted to draw flags from countries they and their families are from, others drew things that they love. Once the blanket was out together it made a lovely patchwork quilt!

It was also great to see all the children wearing clothes that represent their culture and who they are. The children looked amazing and the confidence the clothes gave them shone through.

Week 5- Baking and books!

This week we made gingerbread in class. We took turns to add the ingredients and watched carefully and noticed as the ingredients were mixed together they changed colour and texture!

We then rolled out the dough, cut out the Gingerbread people and hoped they would not run away! Luckily they didn't, and we enjoyed a delicious biscuit at the end of the day.

On Friday it was Pyjamarama Day and we celebrated our love of books. All of us wore out pyjarmas to school and brought in our favourite book to share with our friends. 

At the end of the day our family had the chance to come in a read with us before going home.

Week 4 

RUN, RUN , RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN! YOU CAN'T CATCH ME I AM THE GINGERBREAD MAN! 

 

This week we launched our new T4W story which is The Gingerbread Man. On Tuesday, the children found a mysterious letter from somebody asking for help to cross a river to escape animals chasing them. The children worked together to figure out that the letter may have been from the Gingerbread man. The children then talked about whether they would help the gingerbread man or not and why! 

 

To finish off the launching of our new story we watched the Cbeebies production of the The Gingerbread man with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The children also had a gingerbread man to eat during this. 

 

Overall, the children are VERY excited about our new story.

Experimenting with Materials

For our topic this week we were investigating different materials and thinking whether they would make a good house, just like in out story The Three Little Pigs!

 We enjoyed predicting whether they would float or sink. The children were great at describing the materials and we learnt some new words to describe them.

It was also great to see the children keen to build their own structures outside during choosing time and use lots of different resources from the garden to make them.

Wow! What a busy second week that we have had in F2! On Tuesday, we had a Phonics stay and play, where parents were invited into the classrooms to observe a segmenting lesson and then play with their child afterwards. It was spectacularly attended with over 30 parents/ carers attending. The children loved showing their grown ups the progression in writing during the session. 

Then on Wednesday, the children were lucky enough to join year 1 and 2 for a special story time in the hall led by a local councillor! The councillor launched the big read challenge at the local and city library which children could take part in to earn prizes. 

Back in the classroom, we have been working hard in Talk4Writing to interrogate the story and consider 'what if?' questions for the Three Little Pigs; what if the three little pigs all built there house of bricks? It was fantastic hearing the children's imagination and creativity run wild with some super answers.

Welcome back to F2 for our final term together! 

It was lovely to see all the children back at school happy and healthy on Monday. The staff heard all about the exciting things that you got up to over half term, there were lots of conversations about the Easter bunny visiting and celebrating Eid which was great- thank you for the lovely pictures sent in on Tapestry. 

 

The children were shocked on Monday when they came into the classroom to find our home corner blown down by the Big Bad Wolf! The children had a fantastic about why the big bad wolf might have done this and where the Three Little Pigs fitted into all of the drama. This launched our new topic of Traditional Tale Town brilliantly, with all children immediately hooked into our new learning!

Jungle Dance

This week we have continued our work on our jungle animal dance. This term we have been learning two new animal dance moves and this week it came together as a dance! The children had to carefully consider whether they stood in the space, how they were going to move and what it would look like. They also had to come together in small groups to take the form of different animals. The children had to you their co-operation skills and communication skills to quickly get into groups to create the form of an animal.

The children had a fantastic time taking part in all the lovely activities to raise money for Comic Relief. The children kicked off the day be joining in with the 'Design a red nose' competition. Well done to our two winners who both won an Easter Egg for their efforts, we particularly liked the reindeer inspired red nose design. 

 

We then took part in the fun run around the field. Oaks and Chestnuts were encouraged to run at least 4 laps... Well most of the children completed LOTS more laps than this. It was brilliant to see the children challenging themselves and doing something activity for comic relief.

 

Back in the classroom the children had the opportunity to have their face painted by Miss Singh, we had lots of red noses as well as some rainbows, penguins and love hearts. The children looked brilliant. The face paint combined with their red outfits were brilliant.

Week 2 W/B 26th February

On an Expedition!

This week we explored the garden for endangered animals. We followed a map and looks high and low for animals in different habitats. It was tricky because they were hard to find because they are endangered! We learnt that endangered animals are animals where there are not many left in the wild. We found some animals which were familiar and some animals who were usual. Lots of the children were keen to draw their own maps of the garden, explored our class map and asked lots of questions about animals around the world and their habitats.

Week 2 Endangered Animals

Weekly Learning Week 2

Spring 2- Week 1

 

What a lovely start back to Spring 2. The children settled in beautifully. We kicked off the week with the mysterious disappearance of Granny to launch our new T4W story Little Red Riding Hood. The children interviewed the Wolf, wood cutter and little red riding hood to try and infer what had happened to granny. The children then began searching for granny around school and looking for cues. They had a great time! 

 

The children have also had plenty of opportunities to deliver their 'weekend news' to the rest of the class. Children sent in images on Tapestry of what they had been up to over the half-term and shared these with their class mates. There were some lovely descriptions and clear speaking. Well done children. 

 

Welcome to OBS Vets! 

 

This half-term, our learning focuses on Animals around the world. In response to this, and listening to the children's thoughts about what role play opportunities they would like to see, we have transformed the OBS Cafe into OBS Vets! 

 

The children have been getting stuck into the vets; dressing up, learning new vocabulary such as stethoscope and thermometer and acting out different scenarios. It was a delight to see the children's enthusiasm for this new learning opportunity. 

 

Role play is a key way for children at this age to learn. They develop their vocabulary, have an opportunity to act out real life scenarios, build social skills and have an opportunity to write for a purpose and in the moment.

End of Half Term!

This half term has flown by because we have been so busy learning lots of new things. 

The children settled in quickly after our Christmas break and were keen to take part in all the of learning we had planned. The children have continued to make great progress in their phonics work and we are all really pleased with the way they love to play with the phonics resources during choosing and apply their phonics in their writing.

We have also continued to work hard in maths, expanding our understanding of the numbers 6,7,8 and we had a lovely stay and play with our families where we could show off everything we know!

Our topic has been very popular this term with the children absorbing lots of space facts and applying them during choosing time in their play and creative work.

We hope the children get a well earned rest next week and come back with lots of enthusiasm for next half terms learning.

Week 5-Aliens have Invaded!

This week for our topic we have been considering whether aliens really do exist and if they do where they live. Throughout the week we have drawn aliens, built aliens and described aliens and had lots of fun exploring different words to describe them.

The children have also learnt a space poem this week and done a great job reciting the poem and adding their own ideas.

In addition to topic work, in maths we have been thinking about different ways we measure things and how to describe length. We went on a walk around school looking for things that were short and long. We also made ourselves as long as we could in P.E to try and achieve the perfect log roll. A very busy week!

As part of topic this week we learnt all about space travel. We learnt when humans first went into space, different things which have been sent into space and all about Tim Peake and the International Space Station. We then went outside and launched our own rocket we didn't quite get it into space but it was lots of fun. We noticed the harder we pressed on the pedal the higher the rocket went!

Maths Stay and Play Workshop 

 

Wow! What a fantastic turn out for our Maths stay and play this morning. It was great to see so many parents, grandparents and carers attend to show an interest in your children's learning and see how we run number work sessions at school. The children behaved beautifully and showcased their impressive maths knowledge and counting. They also relished the opportunity to show their grown ups around their classroom and the toys that they play with. The worst part was saying goodbye to their grown ups! 

 

As we mentioned in the sessions the most important things to remember when doing number work at home with your children is to keep it fun and purposeful for them. 

 

We look forward to welcoming you into our classrooms again soon for the Parent Story session on Thursday 8th February.

Happy New Year and welcome back!

 

We hope that you all had a lovely break and enjoyed the time with your family and friends.

 

It has been lovely welcoming the children back to school for this short first week back. The children have settled back into school and remembered our PROUD rules and important routines- this has been great! 

 

Before half term, the children had a vote for what they would like the Christmas Post Office role play to be turned into. The children unanimously decided that they wanted it to turn into a cafe. Over Christmas, the team worked to turn Blossom room into a cafe. Over the past couple of days the children have really enjoyed being chefs, waitresses and waiters and exploring some of the opportunities within the cafe. 

We look forwards to seeing how the children develop their play and language through the opportunities in the cafe role play area.

It has been a very busy first week back at school for all the children.

We have launched into our new topic Seasons and Celebrations and learnt about Diwali. We have been creating Rangoli and henna patterns using cotton buds to paint with. For our WOW day the children tasted some samosas and onion bhaji's while listening to the story of Diwali. They also got to wear some scarves and bangles and Miss Singh wore her special dress which was very sparkly. We all agreed it was a perfect dress for a celebration.

 

We also met our Amigos this week! It was very exciting as we all went to the hall, were partnered with our Amigo and we made up a special hand shake! All the teachers were really impressed with how the children interacted and shared their ideas for the handshake. They were all different and very creative.

 

Well done to all the children for coming back and settling into our school routine straight away, Miss Singh, Miss Marrow, Miss Brown and Miss Squires are all very impressed.
