***DEADLINE Thursday 27th!*** 500 words competition!Today we have began to think about our ideas for the 500 words story writing competition. We will send home these ideas together with some sheets to help you write your stories at home. Please look on the website to find all the details. We have watched the ‘live lesson’ in class. Submissions will now need to be made online at home.
On Friday we made moving dragons. This combined our English, science and D & T learning, but most importantly having fun!
We have had lots of fun playing with and learning about toys from the past.
This afternoon we took part in a PERFORM drama workshop. We had fun exploring different countries around the world to find the golden starfish for the queens birthday!
We have had lots of fun making our egg box dragons.
We have been using our multiplication knowledge to solve word problems.
An enormous well done to all of Cherry class for their amazing Nativity performance! We are all very proud of you!
We have had lots of fun creating our own descriptive poems about pumpkins this week. We started the by using our senses to describe pumpkins; we even got to try a little piece! We then looked at a range of poems including Jack Prelutsky's 'Spaghetti Spaghetti' and others about pumpkins. Here are some of our poems.
Oh pumpkin, oh pumpkin
Oh pumpkin, oh pumpkin
We had lots of fun identifying and comparing plants from Macey's Meadow. We found a sycamore, cherry and hawthorn tree as well as clovers, dandelions and lots of different types of grass! We thought about the features of a plant and whether they were deciduous or evergreen. Can you identify the leaves we found?
On Thursday 7th November we will be going to Macey's Meadow with Lime class. We will begin our new science topic 'Plants', by identifying different species of plants and trees and comparing the features. Don't forget your coat and wellies, although we will postpone in the case of bad weather.
We have all loved 'Power Maths'' today! We have been making number bonds to 100, using bead strings and 100 squares to help us.
Our trip to Macey's Meadow
Today we visited Macey's Meadow to support both our science and geography learning. We looked for a range of living things and discussed how they are suited to their habitat. Also, we talked about the differences between human and physical geographic features.
Cherry Class have made a great start to the year and we are very excited for all that is yet to come!
We look forward to see you at our Welcome Afternoons on Wednesday 18th September and Thursday 19th September 2:30-3:00pm.
