Smashing Saxons!

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

On Wednesday, G1 and G2 had a visit from an Anglo-Saxon to kick start their new History topic ‘SMASHING SAXONS’. The children enjoyed listening to stories about the Anglo-Saxons and the superhero Beowulf. They were able to become Anglo-Saxons themselves and tell the story through drama. The children are excited to learn more about the Anglo-Saxons for the next few weeks.

B2 New Topic - Greece Is The Word!

Tuesday, June 19th, 2018

We were really excited to begin our new Ancient Greek topic  – “Greece is the word”.

We used our ICT lesson to produce an information poster about Ancient Greece to fit into our classroom history timeline display.

This afternoon was spent getting to grips with papier-mâché -the children were fascinated to learn about the process.  We have been busy covering balloons with newspaper and glue.

Can you guess what Ancient Greek artefacts we are hoping to reproduce?

Nursery - How many segments are there in a satsuma?

Friday, June 15th, 2018

After trying to count how many sultanas and raisins we had in our packets last week at snack time, this week we were wondering how many segments there are in a satsuma? Do all satsumas have the same number of segments or do some have more or less?

We each peeled a satsuma, separated it into segments and then put each segment on a number on our number track to help us keep track of our counting. It it sometimes tricky to match 1 number name to 1 object when we are counting lots of things, but by putting the satsuma segments in a line and touching each one, most of us were able to do this. Some of us also used the numbers we recognised to help us with our counting.

So how many segments are there in a satsuma? Well, some of us had the same number – 9.  Some of us had more than 9 – 10 or 11. But Oscar had the most number of segments – 12! After lots of thinking and concentrating, we finally ate them!
