What a busy week we have had with our two trips!
On Tuesday, the Y1 children visited Imagine That! (formerly Underwater Street). They had a very busy day making slime, bath bombs and fridge magnets. There was lots to see and do; construction, role play village and science exploration. (Pictures of the trips to be on the website very soon!)
On Thursday, the Reception children went to Old Holly Farm. It was so much fun! The children fed the animals, collected eggs from the hen house, completed farm craft activities and discovered lots of fascinating facts about the milking process. In fact, Old Holly Farm provide milk for McDonalds!!! Think of all those milkshakes!
Besides the trips, the children have continued with our History topic and wrote a postcard from the past. They have begun their new R.E topic - Neighbours.
The Year 1 children have continued to write about our Crabby Spit story, whilst the Reception children have been writing wanted posters for the 'Naughty Bus!'
It has been action packed! Have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Moon and Mrs Bradbury
What have we been learning this week?
Friday 15th June 2018
This week, the children in Year 1 have been focusing on place value, subtraction and a range of creative work linked to the seaside in the past and present.
The Reception children have really enjoyed exploring their new exciting book called 'The Naughty Bus.' They have been working on subtraction and tricky teen numbers during our work on place value.
This week, the chairs in our classroom disappeared! They were fed up of everybody swinging on them and not tucking the chairs under the tables. This created a fantastic stimulus for our writing. The children loved creating a recount of this event. We focused on using time words and sequencing the events.
Reception have been developing fantastic sentences based on mini-beasts. We have seen lots of capital letters and full stops! They have been practising their beautiful fancy writing too.
During maths, Year 1 have been focusing on place value whilst Reception have been working on number bonds to 10.
In our creative topic work, we have been looking at living things and non-living things. The children have been thinking about what makes something 'living', this sparked some excellent scientific discussion and the children were starting to use scientific words.
Sports day is nearly upon us and this week the children have been outside doing lots of fun activities to prepare for the big day!
Have a fun-filled weekend!
