Upcoming Phonics parent workshop

Tuesday 12th November at 9am

Curriculum overview

We have moved our wormery to the compost heap!

7th October 2019

Today we had the power to make recycled art! 

Thank you to all those parents and carers who came to help out with our creative workshop today, we couldn't have done it without you!

The children and parents looked like they were having such a good time. We have been learning all about materials and recycling linked to our story Superworm. So today we made birds and spiders from recycled material, please have a look on our trees on the trim trail and you'll see the children's amazing creations.

 

Our FirstTopic is...

We've Got The Power!

We have been learning all about different super heroes and their powers. We have also started to read the story Superworm by Julia Donaldson. This has inspired us to go on a bug hunt and create our very own class wormerys.

Oh I do like to be beside the sea

 

Look what we made during our introduction to our new topic 'The Seaside'

Summer 1- Alice in Wonderland

Welcome to our Wonderland, I wonder what you'll see!

You may find many interesting characters who might just invite you for tea!

So check your pocket watch because you don't want to be late. 

Are you going to take the plunge and step inside Wonderland, for your very own adventure?

Spring 2

Court Room Experience

 

Is Robin Hood a Hero or a Villain?

Year 1 collected their ideas, explaining why they thought Robin Hood was a hero or a villain. They presented their case and put forward their arguments, following this they voted and the verdict was that Robin Hood was a Hero.

Newsflash

Robin Hood is going to help us save Egbert from the Big Bad Knight!  

Our Mystery Break In!

Help, Egbert has been captured by the Big, Bad Knight!

Still image for this video
We realised after the break in that Egbert had been taken. In computing we created a message from Egbert thinking about what he might say. We used the My Talking Pet App on the ipads to create this video.

In maths we used the Big Bad Knights footprint to help us estimate his height.

Inspired by the local legend Robin Hood we had a go at making our own bow and arrows out of clay.

Our new topic is...

 

Wait until you are back at school.

Keep your eyes open!

Look for some clues!

All may be revealed!

Or is it a mystery?

India

This Week we have been conducting a science investigation to find out which material will best protect the egg, when dropped from the Infant Playground onto the Junior Playground. The egg will be in a cup attached to a parachute made out of a plastic bag to slow down its fall.

Italy

Our 'Reading Parent Workshop' was a huge success the children loved sharing their learning with their adults.

Canada 

Today we have been on the Maid of the Mist boat tour at Niagara Falls. The children put on their waterproof coats, felt the force of the water moving the boat and the mist spraying over their faces. The children have learnt a little bit about the different sports they can play in Canada, we will find out more about these later in the week. We have spotted some Polar Bears and Grizzly Bears. I can't wait to see what we will do tomorrow!     

Spring 1

Our next topic is called Around the World.

Where in the world have you been?

Picture 1
This week we have flown to Australia. We will be learning about the different landmarks, animals, artwork and musical instruments that come from this country. We had a great time using our passports, boarding our flight and then exploring our new destination. We were all great detectives using the artifacts and resources to work out which country we were visiting. 
We have been reading the story the ' Owl who was afraid of the dark'. In the story Plop meets a young boy who is camping in the dark. He told Plop that the ' DARK IS FUN!' So we went camping in our literacy lesson to find out why it is so much fun. We sang campfire songs, drank hot chocolate and went to sleep in tents. 

Thank you so much for all the parents and carers who came to the Maths workshop! We loved having you come and work with us, Motty was so impressed with your Maths and your teamwork!

Poem Performances

The children learnt this poem and performed it to the class and then taught it to someone at home.

Boom! Bang! Zoom!

Over my Head

November the 5th

Fireworks explode

In the darkness

Racing rockets

Every colour mixes in the sky

 

The children learnt this second poem and performed it as a class.

BANG! There goes another one,

Screaming as it goes.

It's getting high,

Up in the sky,

And fizzle - there she blows!

 

WHOOSH! Up high above the house,

Behind a trail of sparks.

Yellow, orange,

Red and white,

Exploding in the dark!

 

What an amazing bunch of performers!

Our topic is...

This half term we will be learning all about the seaside!
Get your buckets and spades, then get ready for the time of your life!

 

We will take a look at some Geography and find out all about the coastal areas of the United Kingdom and share our own experiences of holiday destinations. We will find out information about creatures who live under the sea. Then we will engage in some observational drawing of shells and sea-life. Some other highlights include cooking and a seaside day...but who are we to spoil all of the surprises! You'll just have to pack your bags and join us on the journey!

 

THE MAD HATTERS TEA PARTY

 

What a fabulous day, even though the weather wasn't kind to us, we still had so much fun! We designed bow ties, hats and place mats. Then we iced the biscuits we made, the children thought they were delicious. Following this we played party games, crochet, snakes and ladders and so much more.

WELCOME TO OUR WONDERLAND...

 

 

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

We have started the summer term with the topic ‘Wonderland’. We will also be looking at a range of different poems based in the story of Alice in Wonderland which will help us to create our own. During our topic time we will be looking at maps and finding out about the local area following on from our walk to the park. We are creating a royal fanfare for the Queen of Hearts, using a range of musical instruments. We will even end our topic with a ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ where the children can come dressed as their favourite character or their own party clothes! 

 

FIND AND READ THE QUOTES THAT THE CHARACTERS HAVE LEFT FOR US!

The children had great fun looking for different quotes from the story 'Alice In Wonderland'. They worked in pairs and used their phonic knowledge to help them. They had great fun and worked so well!
