Just A Reminder

The children are given phonic cards every Friday, they need to practise these words at home and return them every Friday so they can receive a new card. Please make sure these are returned as we have to replace lost ones.

The children also bring home their mathematics cards every Friday, these are updated every week, these let you know what we will be looking at the following week in mathematics.

Useful websites for you to use with your children at home.

Spring

Our topic this term is 'Land of the Giants'

Spring Term
Well done to Class 6 for winning February's attendance award with 96.7% frownno

For our topic this term we have been learning about animal classification and animals habitats, today we created our own types of habitats and chose animals they live in these areas.

Our trip to Twycross Zoo, we didn't let the rain spoil our trip we had a brilliant day seeing the different types of animals and learning about their habitats. We got up close with Alice the bearded dragon and Alan the cockroach, we all had a chance to touch these animals we were very brave!

We've taken part in dance bugs today!

We loved dressing up for World Book Day!

We have been learning about positions this week, we have arranged pictures of children in place order, 1st 2nd 3rd 4th...

We had a visit from Rock Steady Music School, we had the opportunity to listen to, play and sing as part of a band.

Our library visit - thank you to all our helpers that joined us for a walk to the library this morning. We enjoyed listening to the books read to us by the librarians and then we had the opportunity to look around the library and read some books ourselves.

We have used 'Now Press Play', we were told the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, then using the headphones we listened to the story again but this time we acted out the story ourselves, we played different characters from the story, we sold our cow for magic beans, climbed the beanstalk, hid from the giant and chopped the beanstalk down with an axe!

We love science, we have created another experiement. This time we were looking at materials that would be the best insulator for a snowmans coat. To do this we used various materials, we wrapped a piece of ice in the material and waited to see our results. We wrote a prediction and conclusion.

We created our own Rama and Sita books, we were the authors and the illustrators

We had fun in maths today using our concrete resources, we made numbers that were '1 more' '1 less' and 'fewer'. We also played a maths game using our number knowledge about which numbers are 'fewer' than a certain number.
