Last week Reception have been exploring 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We have been re-telling the story using actions and puppets. We are also using the Giant's 'magic beans' to help us to experiment with odd and even numbers, sharing amounts of beans between two and working out whether we had an odd or even number of magic beans!
We had a fun dance session this week, where we explored using different parts of our bodies to pass balloons back and forth!
Class 1 have been working on data handling activities in maths this week which has helped us make a tallly chart for the Belchamp's Got Talent auditions! We have been finishing off our Beauty and the Beast Story and I would like to say a huge well done to Class 1 for their fantastic dance performance of "Be our Guest". Good luck to the Year 2 pupils moving into Class 2 in September. Have a lovely holiday everyone and remember to keep reading!
Last week the children worked on calculating area during maths while continuing with shared writing during literacy. We've been developing a narrative based on the Pixar animation, 'Dug's Special Mission' and the children have come up with some wonderful ideas.
Outside of the classroom, we have been dancing rather a lot and now have finished choreographing our country dance for the summer fete. It still needs a bit of work but I'm impressed with their enthusiasm and effort so far!
Class 3's knowledge of the USA has increased rapidly last week as we have all been collaboratively learning the 50 states. What a great job the children are doing!
We've also been researching different areas such as the Everglades and Death Valley.
Ball and bat skills in rounders this week were brilliant as we played our first full rules match.
