    Our topic this term is Beside the Seaside! smiley

    Summer 2 Week 6 - SPORTS WEEK!

    We began the week with some exercises using our measurement skills. We were working with a partner and timing how quickly they could do certain challenges. E.g. 10 squats, 30 star jumps etc..

    Thursday - We had such a wonderful time learning a new street dance routine. We have some amazing dancers in our class!

    Summer 2 - Week 5

    We had such a lovely time at the seaside!

    Big thank you again for the wonderful helpers who came with us to Weston. We had the best day playing on the beach, eating fish and chips and eating icecream.

    Summer 2 - Week 4

    This week we've been talking all about how to stay safe when we're using the internet. We are all very knowledgeable and know exactly what to do if something makes us feel worried or upset. We then wrote emails on Purple Mash to our class mates. Some of us even learnt how to add attachments to the email.

    Summer 2 - Week 3

    This week we've been learning all about plants. We went on a wild plant hunt and created our own beautiful gardens with labels of common garden plants.

    Summer 2 - Week 2:

    We’ve been artists and scientists this week. We enjoyed creating some decorations for the party on the field and taking part in a live Science lesson. We learnt lots about the Arctic from an explorer who has visited 8 times and then we investigated the impact of fat on keeping the body warm.

    Summer 2 - Week 1

    We've had a lovely week learning about living things. We've planted some of our own beans and we got a visit from Mrs Harris' puppy! We also had lots of fun investigating how to make music on the computer.

    We’ve been learning some Makaton in our Be the Best Fridays. We decided to learn to sign the song Shotgun as it’s a song we knew very well already!

    Monday 17th May - Friday 21st May

    We celebrated National Numeracy Day on Wednesday. We had lots of fun working in teams during a scavenger hunt, making a 'cake shop' and measuring to make cakes.

    On Friday we had lots of fun in our music lesson. We listened to the song 'That's What Friends Are For' sung by Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick and Elton John. The children loved this song and created wonderful pictures to show what they thought of the song. We then practiced playing the hand bells to this term's 'Friendship Song'.

    Monday 10th May - Friday 14th May

    Our Be The Best Friday this term has been learning makaton. Today we began learning the signs to the song shotgun. We’ll give you an update when we’ve practised a bit more!

    We also had lots of fun during our golden time. Some of us made a very long paper chain and did some estimating about how many paper chains we would need and another group of us set up our own shop!

    Monday 3rd May - Friday 7th May

    This week we’ve been doing lots of sharing in Maths. Our year 1s have been making arrays and dividing numbers by 2, 5 and 10 with lots of practical sharing. Our year 2s have been looking at unit and non-unit fractions and finding thirds and quarters of amounts.


    We’ve also been exploring different animal habitats in Science. We had lots of fun drawing our own coastal habitats and labelling the things in the picture with living, dead or never been alive.

    Monday 26th April - Friday 30th April

    This week we've had lots of fun learning and reciting poems. We've also planted some potatoes in the school garden and had a lovely time playing a 'cricket' game in PE.

    Monday 19th April - Friday 23rd April

    This week we took a virtual trip to the seaside. We were thinking about all the things you can see, hear and taste at the seaside so we just had to taste some chips and icecream ourselves!

    Welcome to our Summer Term. We have a PTA Meeting at school on Thursday 11th April at 3.30pm. All parents welcome.
