Spanish

In Early Years and Reception we read a book based on a “Vaca” without spots (manchas) and the culours black (negro) and white (blanco). Children were very attentive and they really enjoyed the story.

In Year 1 we introduced other animals we find in the summer and did some culoring where they had to read the name of the culour, pick up the crayons they needed and decorate a picture – a new culour was introduced: rosa (pink).

In Year 2 we worked on a poem which covers 6 fruits and 6 culours and children enjoyed reading, memorizing and performing it in front of the class.

In Year 3 and 4 we worked on finishing gaps in the book we are working on, revising the alphabet and playing “Hangman”.

In year 5 we concentrated on food, some cooking ingredients and we watched a recording from where the children had to note down the ingredients they identified – a very good session on a lengthy listening. An excellent week!

Reception

This week Reception have been busy writing postcards to Frizzly and their parents. They learnt about postage stamps and why the Queen is on every stamp. In Maths we have been working on Symmetry, Addition and Subtraction. In our Topic the children have been painting minibeast pictures and learning about the different environments where minibeasts are found.

In PE, during a dry patch of weather, the children continued to have fun improving their skills for Sport’s Day.

Year 1

What an exciting day we had on Monday. We saw donkeys, ponies, chickens and ducks, explored the amazing Puzzlewood and got lost in the mazes. Mrs Dymock, Mrs Evans and Mrs Hutt are extremely proud of all the children as they all behaved impeccably.

The children then wrote super recounts of their day. In Maths we have been concentrating on finding the difference between two numbers as well as creating our own dinosaurs using 2D shapes. We have now watched episode 5 of ‘Through the Dragon’s Eye’ which is getting very exciting. In Art we have been looking at the works of Andy Guldsworthy.

Year 2  

Year Two have welcomed new visitors to their classroom today…. Some stick insects! We will be responsible for feeding them and keeping their home clean as well as learning more about them.
We have spent some time this week recapping key maths skills such as addition and subtraction with more complex numbers. We have also completed some problem sulving.
In Art we have been making the most spectacular Rainforest flowers! The children have used a variety of cullage materials and card to make their own unique flower. We have been impressed with the different varieties.

Year 3

In English lessons, the children have continued with the topic of ‘Play Scripts’ this week. They now understand how to write a play script, how a script is laid out and the key words/phrases used in plays. In class, the children did a brilliant ad hoc performance of the Three Little Pigs which they enjoyed immensely.

They are looking forward to writing their own script which will be started next week.
In Maths, the children have worked hard on their end of year assessment and so have no homework this week. Well done everybody!

Year 4

Year 4 have continued to work hard on their times tables. Please feel free to practise these at home, the website is  http://www.timestables.co.uk

Year 5 and 6

Year 5 and 6 have settled back in well after their trip last week. They have enjoyed telling staff all about it!

We hope you can make it to the Summer Fayre tomorrow.
