How does the cold feel?

Welcome back to school Class Kipper. We are pleased to be joined by our new starters this term.  We are also pleased to have Miss Grayson join us this half term. Miss Grayson will be completing her teacher training placement with us until March.

We have many exciting opportunities planned for the children this half term. Every Tuesday children will be able to join in with the cooking and tasting sessions we have planned. On a Thursday children will be having dance session in the hall to further develop their physical skills and imagination.

Our enquiry over the next couple of weeks is based around the key question “How does the cold feel?”  Hopefully the children will get the experience some cold, frosty days and possibly snow!  We will look at stories, poems and information books linked to the cold and winter. Children are becoming much better at listening to stories as part of a group, they are now starting to answer questions based on what they have read. This term we will continue to develop this but also support children in playing with rhymes, rhythm and alliteration. We have a number of children now who are able to recognise their own name, please encourage your child to find their own name at the beginning of the session. We shall also be practicing writing names with the children too.

2gether Update – January 2016

Mad about Minibeasts

2gether have had a busy start to the term with several new children joining the group. They are getting used to the daily routines of taking off their coats, clearing away and have begun the new topic of Minibeasts.

Children have learnt several new songs including; ‘there’s a worm at the bottom of the garden’ and ‘five little speckled frogs’. They have had fun searching for pretend minibeasts in the sand, water and bubbles.

Children will now be moving onto the habitats of minibeasts; painting and making models of them. We are also hoping to welcome a minibeast specialist into one of our sessions where children and parents will have an opportunity to handle some giant snails and other creepy crawly creatures.

Right and Wrong

Enquiry-

Well done to all the children completing home learning projects over half term and  thank you to all the parents who supported their child with these  projects.

This half term the children are focusing on deforestation and what we can do to make a difference. At the moment the children are enquiring about different habitats and how animals adapt to their habitats; especially habitats in the rainforests. This week the children will create a model from their research.

Right and wrong

Happy New Year to all,

Already, it seems like the holiday is a distant memor and we are now full steam ahead into  our new enquiry (right and wrong), and our new literacy focus (mystery writing).

We began our term with a ‘Murder Mystery’ afternoon. It was a great success.  Thank you so much to parents who rushed around to create costumes for the event. None of the children expected to find out that Miss Sharpe’s character was the culprit!

Andreae Express Ourselves!

Happy New Year to you!

We have had a wonderful start to 2017 and it has been great to be back together again with lots of enthusiasm for our learning.

This term in Class Andrea  some of us have started Big Reading! We are all very excited about meeting all the reading SPIES that will help us to learn much more about the texts we read. Ask your child all about it! We have already met Rex the Retriever. Rex helps us find the answers to questions about a text as well as summarising stories and retelling stories. In our photograph below we are retrieving information from our current text, and summarising the text into very important parts.

Happy New Year!

We are very excited to welcome back Class Butterworth after the Christmas holidays!

We began our new ‘right and wrong’ enquiry this term by looking at some thought provoking photos in small groups. This week we have completed collaborative work in groups; finding out what we already know about people that help us learn about right and wrong, including authors and our parents. The children are becoming fantastic at working together to share ideas as a group before presenting them to the rest of the class.

As we continue to progress through the term our focus for Literacy will be traditional tales. We will be using stories as a point of discussion for considering what is right and wrong. We will focus on using story language and work towards planning and writing our own stories.

Welcome back!

Welcome back, the children have had a lot to tell us about their Christmas break. It’s been especially nice to hear about all the quality family time and activities they have experienced, as well as the lovely presents they received.

Thank you to all parents who supported their Children in their home learning over Christmas. The children presented their traditions and celebration to Class Butterworth and we completed our enquiry by concluding that everybody celebrates Christmas in different ways. As always we appreciate you continued support.

This half term’s enquiry is ‘Right and Wrong’. The children have already shared their wonders and are curious about rules, government and the police. One child even wondered why we have a mayor! Watch this space to see how our enquiry develops.

Our favourite music

In the run up to the holiday, Class Sparkes undertook some research to discover what our favourite Christmas song was. This formed part of our ‘Expressing Ourselves’ enquiry. The winner (by a narrow margin) was ‘Last Christmas’ by Wham. We then reflected on why we had preferences for certain pieces of music over others, deciding that the melody and lyrics were important as well as whether we were able to sing along and dance to the music. We are currently planning an assembly to share our learning.

Work on our biographies is progressing very well. We are becoming skilled in redrafting our writing – huge improvements can be seen when we look back at our first drafts. Handwriting is still a focus, we aim to practice daily. Those children who prove that they join neatly in every lesson will be able to use a special handwriting pen; we must ensure that the writing is as neat in other lessons as it is in our handwriting lessons. You could help at home by asking to see my neatest, joined handwriting.

We have been learning about angles in Numeracy, naming, ordering, measuring and drawing them. We are starting to learn about the different angles in shapes, you could help at home by talking about shapes and angles in the environment. Our focus times table is the eleven times table, we can spot the pattern up to 9 x 11 but have not all memorised the rest of the number facts.

Enquiry Update

We landed our last Enquiry: How do we celebrate Christmas now when compared to 100 years ago? – with a bang!. Thank you to all the parents who came to watch our Carol Concert. The children worked so hard writing lyrics and melodies and the outcomes were fantastic: witty, thoughtful, inspiring and informative.

We wish you an ACTIVE Christmas!

During the last month your child has been given the opportunity to experience a different ways of using modern technology to become more physically active. We hope that the healthy activity habits encouraged in school during PE lessons and through our evolving provision for physical activity can continue when children leave school at the end of the day.

The most popular choice of physical activity from the children this term has been the use of an online platform called GoNoodle. GoNoodle pools together age-appropriate, interactive resources that enable children (and families) to engage in fun, physical activity.

GoNoodle rewards children for their participation efforts by allowing them to earn and grow characters (known as ‘Champs). Every active minute that children automatically log on the online platform contributes towards the growth of their ‘Champ’ reward.

PE & School Sport Update

PE Lessons

Children across the school have been working incredibly hard in their PE lessons this term.

EYFS & KS1 children have continued to develop fundamental movement skills  through a programme of physical literacy (EYFS through areas of outdoor provision) led by Miss Green. Physical literacy enables children to improve the basics of moving in a variety ways through different enviroments. Learning to be a competent mover ensures children can access more specific skills linked to sporting activities as they progress through the school.

Here is a link to some informative resources about physical literacy to help us share with you why we beleive it is important for all children at Malton CP.  There are many different tools for you to access content. http://activeforlife.com/educating-parents-physical-literacy/

Expressing Ourselves

Hello,

We have had a very busy time in Class Beck since our last update and we have a huge amount to share with you all.

We have completed our All About Me enquiry and our now at the initial stage of wondering for our new enquiry based on the overarching theme of Expressing Ourselves. As part of stage 2 of our enquiry we were very lucky to have two visitors in Mr Caddy and Mrs Methven, who very kindly came to be interviewed by the class about their jobs and the world of work in general. The children thoroughly enjoyed these opportunities and it helped to answer a lot of questions as part of the enquiry.

Expressing Ourselves at Christmas

We have had a busy few weeks starting our new enquiry; ‘Expressing ourselves’ and practicing for our Christmas Nativity! The children really enjoyed our DIWALI day and learn a lot about DIWALI and the Hindu religion. We particularly enjoyed the art activities, making our own mendi patterns and creating Rangoli patterns with pink powder. We all had fun getting involved with the Bhangra music, learning the lotus flower, and other dance moves. From this the children have taken a particular interest in how we express ourselves during celebrations. We will be taking this learning forward by exploring how different people express themselves at Christmas. We will be looking at the games we play, food we eat, decorations and why we celebrate Christmas. Please talk to you child about the different ways you celebrate Christmas at home and the different traditions you have. It would be lovely if the children could share this in their own way at the end of their enquiry. This could be in the form of a dance, picture, or even a song!

 

After Christmas we will be sending home a new spelling scheme that we have created in Reception/ Year 1. The children will be coming home with high frequency words which we would like them to practice regularly. They will be sent in a special pack which we will be encouraging the children to look after and bring to school every day. More details about this will be sent home with the pack but please feel free to organise a meeting with Mrs Vasconcelos if you would like to discuss this further.
