An afternoon of science

This afternoon we identified and labelled the different parts of a flower. The children worked very well and so looked at trees too to find out what the differences and similarities are.

We spoke about the importance of these parts and what there main function is.

We also moved our caterpillars into their new home. They were ready for a bigger space and will hopefully spread their wings in the next few days.

It has been a week of new beginnings.

We have become budding authors and wrote our traditional tales. The children worked incredibly hard and are looking forward to publishing these next week.

We began our new topic in maths of fractions starting by finding a half of a shape. We will have this as our focus over the next few weeks moving on to find quarters.

In science we have started our seasonal unit of Spring and Summer. We launched this by going on a season walk around the school environment and in our local area to find signs that spring has sprung.

Our caterpillars continued to grow with 1 making their way to the top ready to make its cocoon. We are very excited to see what is going to happen next week.

Our Summer Term newsletter is now available online.

Have a lovely weekend
Miss Corkerry

A brilliant first back after Easter. It was lovely to hear about all of the adventures the children experienced.

We arrived on Monday to a special delivery of baby caterpillars. The children were so excited and have enjoyed watching them grow already. We can’t wait to watch them as they turn into butterflies.

We began planning our own traditional tale in English and thought of some brilliant ideas for our setting and characters. Three goats and the big bad wolf will be published soon ask us about our story.

In maths we continued to look at sharing and multiplication to practise our skills from before Easter. We have now started to work on money and identifying different coins as well as notes.

We will now start to have two phonics sessions a day, as discussed during the parents evening meetings, to fill any gaps and provide intervention needed.

Hope you all had a wonderful break
Miss Corkerry

The children performed wonderfully this morning in their Mother’s Day assembly. We have attached the video as many of you wished to see it again.

Thank you to all the mothers and relatives who cane along. They were thrilled to see so many of you there and were delighted that you all enjoyed it.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums, nannies, step mums, foster mums and mums in Heaven. Thank you for all you do!

Home Study Celebration

The children are looking forward to welcoming family and friends along to school to view their projects. The projects have been completed at home and look wonderful- thank you to all parents who have supported this!

The projects will be on display in classrooms and the same as last term, Year 6 will guide family members round.

Tours will be every few minutes from 2.15pm. The last tour will commence at 2.45pm  to allow time to organise classes ready for hometime.

We look forward to seeing you all on Friday 🙂

British Science Week Celebrations

THANK YOU!

Thank you to all of the children who made fabulous amounts of effort to come into school dressed as mad or famous scientists today and helped us celebrate our love for SCIENCE!

During the last two weeks, we have all been busy being Scientists, researching the answers to questions we wanted to find out, creating posters to celebrate this year’s theme of ‘Journeys’ and also taking part in a whole school quiz!

In a special assembly this afternoon, we got to share what we had been up to with the whole school and award prizes for the quiz winners and poster winners!

Well done to everybody who took part! We really appreciate your efforts and are very thankful for your kind donations too – we raised over £150!

Mysterious happenings in Year One

A very mysterious morning in Year One. The children arrived this morning to a crime scene. They quickly got to work trying to find clues to discover who had caused such a mess! They worked together to try and explain this odd scene but with no witnesses or CCTV evidence the mystery continues.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring…
