Welcome to Willow Class :)
Mrs Orme, Mrs Copestake and Mrs Lakin are looking forward to the following year and hope that we can enjoy a happy and productive school year.
This half term, our topic is Superheroes and we are super excited to start learning. The topic web and homework has been sent home (on Friday 7th September) and you can also find it on here. Please feel free to ask us any questions. Muddy Monday will take place every Monday, children are asked to come to school in their normal school uniform and will then change ready for outdoor learning in the afternoon.
* Reading morning will be every Tuesday, starting from 18th September *
In Science, we have been learning about different materials and today (Wednesday 17th October) we investigated which materials are waterproof. We found out that plastic is the best waterproof material and this is the best material for a superhero cape.
Guinea Pigs in school
Thank you to Scarlet's mummy for bringing in the guinea pigs. We watched them eat some yummy food and we compared them to the rabbits that we have previously met.
In PE this half term we have been working on strengthening our core. We have played lots of different games to make us stronger.
On Monday, Evil Pea came into our classroom and drew on Brocolli, and hung Carrot from the ceiling! Luckily Supertato was around to save the day! Why not ask your children to retell the story using their 'Talk for Writing' actions. You will be amazed at how good they are :)
Rabbits in class
Thank you to Tia's mum and sister for bringing in her lovely rabbits. The children loved stroking them and Mrs Orme would now like a rabbit!
Thank you so much to all parents that have supported with the homework. It has been great to see such a range of superheroes in school. They have really embraced the topic and it is wonderful they are extending their learning at home.
Art and DT
So far this half term, we have made scenery out of large pieces of material, paper, card and wool. We had lots of fun creating streets, forests and busy places. We will be using our pictures in pour writing next week.
This week we have been learning to make numbers, identifying the tens and ones, using a range of different equipment such as straws and cubes. Here are a few pictures of our work.
To start off the year we have played different games to help get to know each other. We have learnt to keep trying when tasks become tricky, asking our peers for help and working as a team.
