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 had a great week back at school after half term. They have been measuring different body parts on the paper drawing and using their doubling skills to find their waist and neck size.
We have been learning a new story called 'Rosie Revere Engineer' which tells the story of a girl who makes new inventions from rubbish that she finds. We are exploring how to write exclamation sentences using this idea.
Thank you to all the children that danced at the Fete on Sunday 3rd June.
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!
After an informative and crafty class trip to Gainsborough House and Sudbury Water Meadows, in Class 3 we are taking our Georgraphy challenge further afield and have started studying The America's! The children have been researching the countries of North and South America and have got particularly interested and creative in learning the flags and creating their own flags.
In PE we have started practising ball skills and recapping the rules for rounders.
The whole class looked fabulous on Friday in their Race for Life pink outfits. Well done for running well and for helping the younger children.
