The children arrived today refreshed and ready to learn lots of new and exciting things.
This term we will be learning all about authors, the author we are thinking about this week is Mick Inkpen the author of the Kipper stories. This morning we shared the story Kippers Birthday, following the story the children made a birthday cake of their own, created birthday cards, made play dough cakes acted out birthday parties and painted some fantastic Kippers! What a busy first day back!
The children in Reception looked fantastic in their costumes yesterday! We had lots of fun sketching and colouring Disney characters, making fairy tale castles from gummed paper, decorating cakes and then ending the day with some dancing. Thank you everybody for making such a big effort and for working so hard during the half term! Have a lovely half term break.
We’ve had a lovely morning today in Year 2… making marmalade sandwiches! We decided that we would like to find out why Paddington Bear is such a fan so we carefully followed a set of instructions. We are pleased to say that the end result was fantastic and everyone ended up with a delicious marmalade sandwich to enjoy! Great reading (and eating) Year 2!
It has been lovely welcoming the children back to school this week, refreshed after their Christmas break and ready to learn.
Our topic this half term is Nursery Rhymes. This week we have shared Incy Windy Spider and Little Miss Muffet. The children have created some fantastic spiders, glittered their webs, put Nursery Rhymes in the correct order and have tried hard to count out the correct number of legs needed for their spiders. They have all worked really hard! Well done everyone!
This week in the Nursery we have shared the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ the children took off their sock and shoes and walked through thick oozy mud, long wavy grass, a deep cold river, a swirling whirling snowstorm and a forest. They worked hard cutting out pictures from the story and tried hard to put the pictures in the correct order. The children created some fantastic bears.
Below is the link to the story
We would love to hear any comments your children have made about the story.
This week in reception we have been sharing the text ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. We created our first class story map and identified the beginning, middle and end of the story.
The children in Year 1 were shocked as they came into school this morning. Evil Pea from our story ‘Supertato’ has been into our classroom to commit some terrible crimes! After the vegetables in the story were left in distress caused by Evil Pea, he then left our poor animal toys in distress by taping them to the tables! We hope he isn’t planning any more terrible crimes!
The nursery children have loved meeting scaredy squirrel and were really interested to find out about what he is scared of.
