Spring on the farm

As we begin a new half term, we celebrate new life with our topic of Spring on the farm. We will explore farm animals, plants, Easter and Spring across the whole curriculum.

Hopefully the weather will be kind to us allowing us to take our learning outdoors and begin to explore our garden area.

Busy Busy in Class Armstrong...

Class Armstrong have certainly earned their Christmas break with all of their hard work over this half term. We kicked off Numeracy with exploring addition and subtraction number families. Children have used part-whole models as well as ten frames and cubes to solve number problems. In Literacy we have been learning about adjectives and produced our own poetry book on fireworks. We are now furthering our knowledge of The Victorians; writing facts about their toys and festive traditions. 

 

In Physical Education they have been refining their movement skills to aid them in invasion games. We were lucky enough to have been invited to St Mary’s Church to look at how Christians worship and use the church. The children had an opportunity to have a go at lots of activities and listen to information about the church. Back in the classroom, we have also been using local maps to identify human and physical features. In our weekly Science lessons, the class have been learning the names of different materials why they are chosen for different purposes. More recently the children have worn odd socks to celebrate individuality and explore the issues surrounding bullying. We are now fast approaching our nativity show and are busy practising our song words and developing our acting skills. We are looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. Tickets are available from reception.

Miss Davet teaches French and Art on Wednesday morning and Miss Green teaches ICT. Miss Walker and Mrs Farnon also work in the classroom, supporting children and leading intervention groups.

What a fantastic start to the new half term!

Wow, what an exciting first half term Class Blyton have had! We have managed to fly around 7 different continents in the space of just 8 weeks! As Explorers, we have learnt about the 7 continents and the 5 oceans of the world as well as visiting a country in each of the continents. Our enquiry was ‘Which countries are in each of the continents?’

As Writers, we have created our own narratives based on our class novel as well as learning all about instructions and how to write them.

As Readers, we have also worked hard to develop our fluency as well as trying hard to read at least 3 times a week at home. We have had the opportunity to make inferences and predictions on what might happen next in a story and why.
