We are loving our new topic of Dinosaurs. Hopefully the children are coming home and telling you lots of new facts.
We have been lucky enough to have Andy the potter join us and make clay dinosaurs with us on a Monday afternoon. Larch class have painted theirs this week and Beech class will get the opportunity next week. Once these have been painted, glazed and fired in the kiln these wonderful art pieces will be brought home.
Our writing this week has been looking at learning to write an information text about dinosaurs, including subordination in our sentences.
Maths is continuing with the challenge of multiplication! We have now moved on to converting an array (a repeated addition) into a multiplication.
Next week we move onto our 'roots' fortnight where we will concentrate on the values of our school. We will be basing our learning on the book Mama Panya's Pancakes
Thank you for all of the children that have brought in home learning so far, we look forward to seeing more before the deadline of Monday 5th February
Yesterday EYFS,KS1 and St Andrew's school enjoyed a wonderful theatre show all about Beatrix Potter and her amazing stories. We found out about Peter Rabbit,Jemima Puddleduck, Jeremy Fisher and The Tailor of Gloucester. The story was told by three people and lots of puppets! We had a marvellous time.
We are continuing with our Superhero project; and have been creating our own stories and comic strips in English. In addition to this we have been learning about 'our world' and have this week looked at the cold areas and what animals may live there.
Our maths has been looking at taking a 2 digit number from another 2 digit number, this is something we will be continuing to unpick with the children and develop their confidence.
When we are not saving the world with our imaginations, we have been rehearsing for our nativity. However, this does mean that currently our indoor PE slot has now become an 'on the stage' rehearsal. Thank you to all the parents that have been supporting the children learning their lines, we are not Oscar ready yet, but practice makes perfect!
A polite reminder, please can we ask parents to bring in NAMED costumes in a NAMED bag by Monday 27th November.
We look forward to seeing our parent volunteers on Thursday 23rd November from 1.30pm. We will be making headbands for the nativity and you will be treated to a sneak preview of our singing!
