A trip to Saint Annes
The children from Sandpiper and Puffin class went on a trip to Saint Annes church in Worksop. The children enjoyed meeting Rev Dave and the other members of the church team and explored the different areas of the church. We even had a go at ringing the church bell and tasted some bread as part of the holy communion.
Some of the children and parents from Sandpiper, Puffin and Sparrow class took part in our Sping term Dadly challenge and took up the task of making an aeroplane which would fly the furthest. We had lots of fantastic entries with the winner being Jenson from Sparrow class well done to all those families who took part.
Last week in Maths we used rulers and measuring tapes to measure different items in our classroom. On Friday we used our measuring skills to put ourselves in order from tallest to smallest.
Tallest to smallest
As part of our weather topic we have been having a go at forecasting the weather ourselves.
Chinese New Year
This week we have been learning all about Chinese New Year the children have written about the animals from the Chinese zodiac and eaten a Chinese banquet. Take a look at our blog for pictures of our writing.
Maisy goes camping
This week in Maths we have been looking at addition and writing number sentences. We have read the book Maisy goes camping and used it to help us write number sentences adding one each time. The children then had a go at making their own tents using bricks and animals to see how many they could fit inside.
This week in Sandpiper class we have been singing the songs, Ten green bottles and 10 fat sausages to help us with our subtraction number sentences.
I don't care what the weatherman says...
This half term we will be investigating all things weather related and looking into the science behind the weather and why we have the weather that we do in each season. We will be reading the books, Kipper's book of weather by Mick Inkpen and I Love the rain by Margaret Park Bridges. The children will have a go at being meteorologists and predicting the weather that we will experience.
