Hermit Crabs Classroom Exhibition!

Friday, December 6th, 2019

After school on Wednesday, Hermit Crabs turned their classroom into a miniature art exhibition and welcomed their family members to come and have a look at the fantastic artwork they had produced.  The children enjoyed having the opportunity to showcase their work, and talk to their relatives about the learning journey that led them to producing their final piece of framed work.  The children also had the opportunity to purchase their work and take it home with them afterwards.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the family members who attended on Wednesday; it was lovely to see the children ‘come alive’ when they were talking about their work.  If you were unable to make Wednesday, there is still opportunity to purchase your child’s work.  Please see your child’s class teacher for more information.

Dolphins love the story of Harvey Slumfenburger!

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

Dolphin class have been looking at the story of Harvey Slumfenburger’s Christmas present. He is a little boy who lives at the top of the Roly Poly mountain, which is far, far away. We have been learning about nouns (names of things), proper nouns (name of a person, place, street, days, months, and has a capital letter), adjectives (describing words), verbs (actions) and adverbs (describes the action, usually ends in ‘-ly’ suffix). We looked for nouns, verbs and adjectives in the story. We then created our own word bank of adjectives to help us with our writing. We’ve produced some beautiful work and hope you like it.

We played some games to get better at nouns and adjectives, here are some of them.

Dolphins have been looking at money!

Friday, November 29th, 2019

Dolphin class has been looking at all the coins. We can use our place value skills to count up a selection of coins and to then get out the correct amount to pay for our ‘shopping’. Here are some games we have enjoyed playing.

If you’re up for a challenge, this website makes us add up amounts and give change: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/44/solve_2_step_money_problems_

We sorted coins here:

Last week we finished our History topic about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. The children enjoyed learning all about life during these periods. They had fun out in our forest school area becoming Vikings for the afternoon and even trying some of their food.

This half term, we will be learning how to sew and will be making our own fabric bookmarks. We look forward to sharing them with you.

Sharks - What a week!

Friday, November 29th, 2019

As you maybe aware that at the beginning of this week Sharks had to move out of their classroom and into the assembly hall. This is because with all the rain we have been having lately our roof decided to leak!  Anyway we wanted to let you know that despite the chaotic start to the week, the children have been brilliant with the changes and we wanted to let you know how proud we are of them.

We have also started a new topic this week which is a sewing topic. The children are going to design their own bookmark.  This week we started looking at the different types of bookmarks and evaluating them to see which type of materials will work best.

These are some of the bookmarks that they have been evaluating.
