Welcome to our class page. Please enjoy reading and looking at our learning so far this academic year.
Meet Mrs Skoyles - Class teacher Mrs Harper - Teaching assistant
Our summer topic is based on Quentin Blake's collection of Mrs Armitage on wheels'. We will deepen our curiosity and knowledge investigating how different wheels work on different surfaces. Our sparkling start will be an opportunity to test out different wheels when we bring our own wheels to school to try out. Watch this space!
After our trip to Tesco we came back to school and researched healthy and non-healthy foods. In preparation to promote healthy eating to year one we tried different healthy fruits and made fruit smoothies. We wrote instructions for year one so they can follow our instructions and make their own fruit smoothies.
We needed lots of skills for this activity including collaborating our ideas and creativity designing a delicious healthy drink from what we tried and tested at the supermarket. We used our maths skills to measure the ingredients out and reading skills to read the instructions how to make the drink.
We look forward to sharing more of our learning and the outcomes over the next few weeks. Still to come...
Promoting our 'Teddy bear's picnic' to year one and reception organising the budget in maths, writing our own version of different traditional tales and looking at food links in traditional tales.
Home learning projects this half term included writing a food diary of healthy foods, writing instructions how to make something at home, to write a traditional tale with a twist and junk modelling a castle.
On our last day of half term all the children had the opportunity to use their castles with small world characters and role play their own traditional tale. The children then went on to write their own play script.
Take a look!
Last term we were 'Bright Sparks' and learnt all about sources of light. For our sparkling start we welcomed the Star Dome which was a 6 metre mobile planetarium. Inside the planetarium we became star gazers and space was projected all around to find out how we get day and night.
In maths we have been focusing our skills on number and place value. We have been using dienes to partition two and three digit numbers.
Children in Need
This year for Children in Need we dressed up as wizards and other magical characters for the day to raise money for this worthy cause.
Our class text this half term has been the series of 'The Lighthouse Keeper'. Mr Grinling. the lighthouse keeper wrote to us explaining mice had chewed through the wires of the electrical circuit and now the light in the lighthouse had stopped working.
We explored how electrical circuits work and investigated conductors and insulators. We wrote a letter back to Mr Grinling explaining what we had found and the best objects to use to connect his electrical circuit again.
