Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Bonnet Parade

Easter - We have spent lots of time reading the Easter story, sequencing the story, making cards and chocolate cakes, decorating eggs and crosses.

Reflection Day - Today we shared an assembly, talked about Coronavirus and had reflection time. We then went for a walk around the school to look at daffodils. We then created our own sun catcher daffodils to create a happy display in our classroom.

SCIENCE WEEK - We have been doing lots of different Science activities, linked to our story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. On Monday we melted wax to create paintings. On Tuesday we created our own ice gardens and put it in the freezer. On Wednesday we created flitter bottles. On Thursday we used real food to create a crunch building, butterfly and cocoon. In addition to this, we have been drawing and writing about the life cycles of butterflies. We now even have our own caterpillars growing in class!

WORLD BOOK DAY - This week we have been busy creating our own Dear Zoo book, measuring animals, creating masks and characters and using construction to create something from our favourite stories. We have also joined in with whole school activities of finding somewhere crazy (but safe) to read and recreating front covers of books.

9th February - Today is Internet Safety Day. First we shared a story about Buddy the Dog and how to ask for help when on the internet. Then we shared a story about Smartie the Penguin and spoke about different scenarios and what we should do next. We then created Smartie the Penguin masks and drew what we enjoyed most on our tablets with a sentence to match.

Our fun in the SNOW!

This week in RE we read the scripture about Jesus choosing Disciples. We read the story about when Jesus saw the men in their fishing boats but didn't catch anything and then Jesus told them to go back into the water and they caught loads of fish! We have been pretending to be Simon and fishing, we have made and decorated fish and also made our own pictures of being in a boat.

In RE, we have been drawing pictures of the Holy Family, writing speech bubbles as if we were Mary and what we would say to Jesus when she lost him in the temple, building our own temples and pretending to have our own feast.

We have been researching about where in the world we live compared to the Antarctica. We then got set a task by Miss Pataria to show her what it is like there in our own way ... Here is our amazing work!

We have researched and had a look at art work created by David Abbey Paige. Take a look at some of our art work based on this artist.

We have been reading Goldilocks and The Three Bears. We have been drawing our own story maps and making chairs for a bear using resources we have at home. In Maths we have been ordering objects by their size. We have been talking about different feelings, taste testing toppings on porridge and keeping up with sharing stories.

We have been learning about Jesus and his family. We acted out being Jesus when he was little - playing games and helping Mary at home, we pretended to be Mary and doing jobs like cooking and cleaning. We learnt that Joseph was a carpenter and so we pretended to build and make things out of wood.

Term 3 - We are now doing our learning at home, with videos from Miss Pataria everyday we can join in with fun activities. This week we are reading The Gingerbread Man. In English we are drawing and writing sentences for a story map. In Maths we have been adding one more and writing number sentences. We have been doing lots of art and craft as well as a Science activity to see if we could build a bridge to help the Gingerbread man over the river.

Come on let's do the conga!
