A dragon came to visit!

The children were very excited this week to watch a video of a dragon that came into our playground and burnt some of the pathway! They were keen to write wanted posters to tell others what they had seen and to see if the dragon could be captured.
Here are some examples of their excellent writing:

During discovery time the children chose to write their own stories about dragons and shared them with the rest of the class. Here are some examples of their fantastic writing:

Outside for discovery time, the children worked together and built traps to capture the dragon as they wanted him to come back to visit.

The children also enjoyed using their creativity skills to make their own dragon masks. Here are some photos of their art work:

In maths the children have continued with adding amounts to 20 using Numicon and other various counting objects. Here are some photos of their great learning:

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

Welcome back to the Summer Term

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter break. The children have settled back into school really well.
They have enjoyed reading the story Jasper’s Beanstalk. We have planted seeds in the outdoor area and have been talking about what is needed to grow a plant. The children then wrote their own lists of things they need and instructions on how to do it.
In maths the children counted beans and matched them to the numbers on the pots as well as cutting and sticking beanstalks in height order.
Here are some examples of their learning:

Please continue to read daily with your children at home and record it in their diaries so we can issue a certificate for when they read 20 times.

We hope you have a great weekend.

Week 6 learning

Last week we enjoyed writing to the farm to ask them to visit our school and on Tuesday we were surprised to see they had arrived. Here are some photos of the children handling the animals:

In literacy we enjoyed listening to the story ‘We’re going on an egg hunt’. The children then made their own eggs, hid them in the outdoor area and then drew their own maps and wrote sentences to explain where they had hid the eggs for their friend to find. Here are some photos of their learning:

We hope you all have a well deserved Easter break.
