Couscous

This week we made our couscous dish as part of our design technology work.

Baby Day

Today Clee Class took care of all the babies. We learnt how to change them, feed them, play with them and look after them. The children wrote a list of all the things they would need for their baby. We also did a treasure hunt finding all the baby items around the field. Throughout the day we sang nursery rhymes and played peek-a-boo with our babies. Finally we finished the day off with some jelly baby addition and enjoy eating some jelly babies too!

Porridge

As part of our work on Goldilocks and the Three Bears we had a go at making our own porridge. It wasn’t too hot, it wasn’t too cold – it was just right! 🙂 As well as making porridge Clee Class had to chop up their own fruit to go on top. It was very yummy!

Bread

Today we had a parcel delivered to us – it was from The Little Red Hen. She had no bread left to sell in her bakery so asked for our help! We set to work making the bread to send off to her. The children really enjoyed making the bread.

Acorns

At lunchtime something had fallen on Miss Lady’s head. We needed to use our investigative skills to find out what it was – an acorn! We found out that acorns grow on oak tree’s and fall off during the Autumn. We also found a pile of hidden acorns that we thought a squirrel might have gathered.

 

Field to fork

This afternoon we watched a video showing us how porridge is made from oats. We looked at how it is harvested on the farm and taken to a factory. We were very lucky to have a range of crops to look at which were donated by Olivia – thank you! If anyone else has any resources which could be used for our field to fork topic please speak to Miss Lacy.

Star Dome

Last week Techniquest (Wrexham) came into school to talk to all the children about our solar system and the stars.  The children enjoyed learning about the different star constellations, their names and many facts about the planets in our galaxy.  We all had lots of fun!

Our Topic

This half term our topic is ‘Superheroes.’  This topic gives us the opportunity to explore the curriculum through a range of stories, poems and non fiction texts.

Literacy

Every week or two weeks will be themed around a specific story or information text that links to our topic.  We will be focussing on retelling stories through role play, speaking and listening and building upon their existing and new vocabulary as well as giving the children opportunities to write.  I would encourage you to find opportunities to support your child by reading with them and encouraging them to talk and retell the story (of your choice) as well as introducing new vocabulary.

Maths

In Maths this term we will be mostly focusing on number.  The children will be learning about recognising numerals of personal significance, counting, recognising numbers and recording using marks they can interpret and explain.  I would encourage you to explore numbers with your child by noticing numbers they can see in the environment, counting objects and making sets.

Topic

We will be learning about Ourselves, through healthy eating and learning about our bodies, People who help us – local Superheroes e.g. Police, Vets, Fire Service etc. and our superhero families.

Reading

All children will read their individual books in school and will have opportunities for guided reading.  In class we focus reading mainly through phonics to support your child’s development in their word building skills.
