Spring 1

We made it to the end of the half term. I do hope the half term lets the children have a well deserved break.

We really have been busy with learning about animal body parts, to understanding place value in maths. We had a lovely restful mindfulness day on Thursday, the children had a carousel of very relaxing activities. I know I was worn out from doing yoga all day!

Please have a very restful half term and see you all back in a week.

Weekly Certificates

Its been crazy here with our crazy creatures that have come to visit us. We have had so much fun learning about the insects and their habitat. Who knew how many hearts a cockroach has?

In also news we have been working hard in English in preparing ourselves to write our own fact file on our own crazy creature

In Maths we have worked hard in our near doubles, and worded questions, we have proved ourselves better than we thought!

All pictures will come here is a snippet..

This week has flown by, we have been working hard in everything. In English we used a picture of our Ridgeback Dragon to write some poetry. We had a lesson in the library and learnt all about the differences between fact and fiction books. In Maths we looked at number lines, one more one less and estimating. We had a really fun lesson estimating various objects in containers. In Art we have been printing using wooden sticks and creating dinosaur pictures, which link into our topic of dinosaurs and this week we have been studying fossils and how paleontologists used these to work out what our planet was like millions of years ago. After all of this research we had a very calming yoga lesson in PE and ended the week having some reading for pleasure time.

Hopefully it will not be as cold next week.

Have a lovely weekend
