Week 3

This week the children were really challenged by the Instructors to let go of the penguins! Scary for some, easier for others. The children also had to practice getting up from the ice without putting their hands down on the ice!!!! They are becoming more confident every week. Excellent.

Some children made a delicious orange sponge. we mixed sugar with butter then added egg. We then folded in the flour and added orange zest and juice. Our mixture was put into glass bowls as we were cooking in in the microwave. It grew really big when it had cooked. It was very tasty.

Mrs Deegan set a secret challenge for the Big Stars where they had to sit behind her chair so they couldn't cheat and see any numbers. Their mission was to roll a dice, write the number, then write the numbers which are 1 less and 1 more. Most of them could do it and some will have another go. Well done for not cheating!!!!

Watch out Little Stars, your secret challenge is coming!
As our topic has been the seaside, we have imprinted shells into dough. They then dried for a week and we then painted the imprints the shells had made. I hope you are enjoying them at home. We loved making them.

The Big Stars Maths group had to work independently. They rolled a dice, counted the same amount of cubes and put them in our fish bowl. They then wrote the number and wrote a + sign. Then they rolled the dice again, counted out cubes, wrote the number and wrote a = sign. They then added the two groups together and wrote down the answer. Mrs Deegan was impressed with how they persevered and challenged themselves to try and work by themselves. They were great!

The Little Stars had to roll a dice, count the same amount of cubes to put in the fish bowl. Some of them then wrote the number and some of them added 1 or 2 more, counted how many altogether and then wrote the answer. The Little Stars need to try and become more independent and work by themselves.

Our Creative week

Wow we have been really busy this week. Not only have we welcomed Mrs Hill back after her maternity leave, we have been learning lots of different things.

We have been learning....

E safety

Poetry on elephants

Investigating facts on elephants

Joining in with Class 4 to share a story with an older child.

 

There are lots of photos to see. Ask your child all about their week.

E safety

As a class we have discussed the importance of staying safe when using the internet.

We looked at the story of 'Smartie the Penguin' who was lucky enough to get a laptop for his birthday. The story helped them understand some of the dangers of the internet and how they can play safely and still have lots of fun.

 

Elephant Investigation

The children have been really busy helping me find out if an elephant would make a suitable pet! We carried out lots of activities looking at the following areas;

 

How much an elephant would eat everyday.

How much water an elephant needs to drink everyday.

How much poo an elephant would produce everyday!

How long and elephant would live.

How big an elephant can grow.

 

It was lots of fun and in the end Class R decided I would be better with something smaller like a rabbit!

Paired Reading

We split the class into two groups. one group stayed in Class R and the other went upstairs to Class 4. Class 4 did the same. Class R children were then paired off with a Class 4 child and they sat and shared stories together, talking about what the story was about, who were the characters, what happened in the story and whether they liked it or not. 

 

Here are some comments from both classes about it. 

"I like it! I like that book."

"It was good because it was nice."

"It was good because the story was good."

"It was awesome."

"It was really nice to read to them. I was surprised as he wasn't talking or loud but was looking at the book."

"I was excited as it was my first time reading with Class R. It got OK then better."

"At first I was shy then I really enjoyed it."

Poetry

We have been learning a poem about elephants. We chose elephants as they are in our story the 'Monkey Puzzle' which we have been reading this term. Ask your child to act out the poem for you. We then performed it in front of the rest of the school in assembly.

We also made elephant masks. We had to think about its ears and what shape and size to cut. we also concertinaed the trunk which is like making a fan.

SRE

The children have had to help a very silly puppet called Ellie the elephant who never remembers how to get ready for school in the right order. She tries to get dressed before she has washed or cleaned her teeth before she goes to school. Yuk! Luckily Class R were able to help her and to sequence their day in the right order. Phew!

Goose Fair

Our challenge was

'How to turn a flat rectangle into a solid cylinder.'

We made a Helter Skelter by rolling a rectangle piece of card into a cylinder. We then cut out two circles, one for the top and one for the bottom. Then we cut some slits into the top and bottom of the cylinder so we could tape it onto the circles. Then we watched Mrs Deegan cut out a spiral for our slide. We are very proud of them.

MACMILLAN

Thank you so much for all your kind donations. We had a great day making sandwiches and decorating biscuits for our picnic. They were so tasty. 

 

Making sandwiches is a great activity to do with your child. Naming the ingredients, learning to use a knife to spread the butter and learning to cut it into two pieces.

Why don't you have a go.

In P.E we have been learning to balance a beanbag on different parts of our bodies and to move carefully round the room.

Then we had to work with a partner to throw and catch the beanbag.
