Year One enjoyed going on a "Sound Hunt" to re-visit sounds and digraphs we learnt this week. The children worked in two groups to find words hidden around the school. At the beginning the children found their words, sound chopped and blended them to the rest of their group. Later they worked collaboratively to find a match within the other group.

In Year One this week we learnt to combine two sets of numbers. Initially children used the strategy of counting all, in which they had to begin with a part and add a second part. This has developed throughout the week and children began to explore efficient counting strategy in which they counted on from the greater part. The children explored this strategy through a number of word problems and reasoning tasks, and enjoyed convincing and demonstrating their understanding to others!

Children in Year One enjoyed consolidating their knowledge of coins this week. They worked in pairs to match the coins to their value and order these from the lowest to the highest. The children have then set up an ice cream shop and added the cost of two ice creams to pay the correct total cost to the shopkeeper. 🛒📝

Year Three have been sharing their understanding of the make up of a volcano through art. They drew themselves a cross section of a volcano, remembering to include each section and then used the techniques for collaging from our art lessons to add colour.

In Design Technology this week, Year 1 modelled their final buildings in clay! We started the lesson by discussing with our learning partners; the purpose, look and special features of our design. We then referred to the design in our books and used skills such as rolling, cutting and sticking clay to make the final piece. The results were fantastic, we each managed to make a standing model of our building, which we are looking forward to evaluating and decorating next week!

In Year Three this week the children have been using their bodies and cups as percussion instruments. We have used this to develop their understanding of beat, rhythm and tempo. It was amazing to see the children’s enthusiasm when creating their own music.

Yeah Three have enjoyed learning more about rocks and soil this week. The children loved getting to know how fossils are made and the different kinds that can be found around the world today. They were very interested to hear about the different facts we can learn from fossils that are found.

In Year One today we explored using the standard unit of a litre, to show the volume and capacity of a container. The children worked with a learning partner to predict which containers on their table were more or less than a litre. They discovered that a litre was the greatest volume, followed by a half, then a quarter. 💦🚰

Today in Year One we enjoyed learning about clay. The children found out lots of interesting facts about clay, including that it is made from mud, it is sticky, and it turns to stone when it dries. We practiced using our hands, a rolling pin and a plastic cutter to form the clay into a circular base and build walls using coils of clay. The children are excited to be making their final model in a few weeks’ time!

This week in Apple Class we had some mischievous visitors. Some pirates came to the school and decided to take Miss Early because they thought she would make a great pirate to join their crew!

Year One enjoyed their final geography lesson today. Children worked in small groups to create a fact-file for their chosen country in the United Kingdom. Children took it in turns to suggest and scribe a fact onto their posters. By the end of the week, we are going to put these posters together and create our own book about the United Kingdom. Children are then going to share their book with the rest of the school. 📖

Today in Year One we have explored what happens to a word when we add the ‘-un’ prefix. Children worked in pairs and using a dictionary found a selection of words with the ‘-un’ prefix to explore. Then, children have listed these words, looking carefully at the root word and how it’s meaning changes when the ‘-un’ prefix was added. Later on in the week, children are going to use a thesaurus to find synonyms for common words - ready for their recount writing next week!

Oak Class enjoyed working in groups to decide upon the most interesting facts about a country in the United Kingdom. The aim of the geography lesson was to convince and persuade a tourist to visit chosen country. Children had time to practise presenting their posters, taking turns and speaking audibly before they have presented their posters to the rest of the class at the end of the lesson.

Year Three have continued to investigate light and shadows in science. The children were experimenting to see how they could change the form of shadows. They tested using more than one light source to make more than one shadow and were trying to change the length and darkness of their shadows.

This week in Reception Class we had some very special visitors, we asked loved ones to come in and do some reading with the children! Apple class loved choosing their favourite stories from the book corner and showing off their amazing, progressing reading skills. The children also enjoyed presenting their classroom and telling parents all about the learning that they have been doing. Thank you for all those who could come in.

In Oak Class this week we started studying El Caminante, a drawn animation about a high wire artist. Children took part in a senses walk on Monday, walking in pairs and relying on their partner to guide them around the maze. Afterwards, children walked in groups to share their observations and speculate on the possible setting, character and events in the story.

In our Design and Technology lesson today we have explored and evaluated a range of moving books. Children worked in groups to find out which parts of the books have moved and identified the mechanisms - wheel and sliders. We have evaluated the effect of these moving objects on the books and started to think about our own end project, to see how we can incorporate these in our final project.

Oak Class enjoyed performing an experiment to observe changes in their science lesson this week. Children have worked in pairs to create a tornado in a bottle! This has helped us understand Christopher Columbus’ first voyage where he has lost one of his ships to a terrible tornado. Children worked scientifically by making observations to answer their questions. We are keen to carry on experimenting in the coming weeks!
