🐣🐛🐑🌤 SPRING 🌤🐑🐛🐣

Our new topic for this half term is Spring!
This week we begun talking about the changes which occur during spring. A lot of the children noticed the sun had been shining a lot recently, but it was still very cold outside. But they knew Spring is on the way!

We have opened our farm shop as well as our small world farm, we are looking forward to developing our vocabulary around all things Spring!

What’s in the box?

This week we discovered a mysterious box in our classroom. It had ‘danger’ and ‘caution’ signs on so we knew it must be something dangerous!! The box came with some care needs, after reading the care needs and noticing the air holes we knew whatever was inside was alive! But what was it?
Class 2 impressed me so much with their imagination, they suggested the creature was a:

🦖 a green lizard

🦕 a huge spider

🦖 a colourful butterfly

🦕 a huge dinosaur

🦖 a huge, green beast

🦕 a bug, bad witch

 

We decided we need to make wanted posters, describing this creature in case anyone else had seen him creeping into our school!

The next day when we arrived at school we found the feature had escaped from the box!! A DINOSAUR😵

Class 2 came up with the idea that he was a baby dinosaur who was a bit scared looking for his Mummy, they have been amazing at looking after him. They even thought about some names for him and wrote them down.  

Hoopstarz

This week Class 4 enjoyed a fantastic morning learning hula hooping skills with Hoopstarz! We started by learning how we need to stand and move our bodies in order to hula hoop well and then learned some new moves to add in, including:

🌟The 360 Spin

🌟The Angel of the North

🌟Spin the Penny

We had so much fun learning a new skill!

Weather Vanes💨

As part of our topic ‘Weather and Seasons’ this half term, we have been looking at weather vanes in our D&T lessons. We started by looking at what a weather vane is before designing our own and then creating them using cups, straws, pencils and paper.
We then took them outside to test them out – luckily it was a very windy day!💨

What a week in Class 5!

The children have worked incredibly hard this week in English.  They have been looking at, picking apart and writing a non-chronological report all about Wolves.

They have researched, using videos and information fact sheets, made notes about 3 sub-headings and then wrote their own.  It was quite a challenge but with excellent results, and I am extremely proud of each and every one of them, well done!

I shall be displaying them outside of the classroom so please come and see what they have published, real Authors in the making!

Up, up and away!

As part of our ‘Transport’ topic, class 4 have been looking at different forms of transport. We looked at hot air balloons and decided to make our own. We started by creating a design for our hot air balloons before creating them using paper mache. It was very messy so we had lots of fun! We are now waiting for our balloons to dry before we can decorate them following our designs.

A Magical World Book Day✨

Class 4 have had a very magical day to celebrate World Book Day! We have completed book quizzes, designed our own book covers, shared our favourite books as well as reading lots of new ones and even had a visit from a REAL magician and his very cute rabbit, Flash, who showed us lots of amazing tricks!!🐇 ✨

and of course, we all looked FANTASTIC!!🌟

Children’s Mental Health Week

This week, as part of Children Mental Health Week, we had a visit from the fabulous BlueJay Wellness team, who came to teach us lots of different stretches and calming techniques. As this years theme was ‘Let’s Connect’ we played a game involving connecting with each other to find matching pieces to complete a puzzle, we then had to do whatever stretch was on the card, supporting and using others support to help us balance. Some were very tricky! But with the support of others, we managed to do it. We ended the session by reminding ourselves that we are strong and we are super, which is something we now aim to tell ourselves every day so we never forget how amazing we are!🌟

 

New Years Resolutions Assembly

Class 4 performed a super assembly this morning all about New Years resolutions. They have learned what a resolution is and have thought of their own goals they want to work towards.
