Well done to our certificate winners. Keep up the great reading!
Congratulations to all of Year 4 children who are doing so well with Lexia. The children are really enjoying this reading program and as you can see they are doing really well. Some children are very close to getting a certificate so watch this space! Keep up the great work Y4!
Children in Year 1 came dressed up for World Book Day and ready to complete lots of fun activities. We designed a new book cover for our favourite books, then drew our character we have came to school dressed as and measured their body parts.
Today we celebrated World Book Day. We all dressed up as a book character and brought in a book. We had a great time showing off our costumes, writing book reviews and becoming story detectives to create characters. Year 3 looked fantastic!
The book we focused on today was ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. All the children made fruit kebabs, then wrote instructions how to make fruit kebabs. During Maths, we decided what fruit was our favourite and used this information to complete a graph.
Today we took part in No Pen Day in school. We looked at the author Tom Fletcher and our maths lesson was based on his dinosaur books. We needed to make enclosures for different dinosaurs using string. We carefully measured the sides of the enclosures and cut the string to the correct sizes. We then placed the correct dinosaur names into the correct enclosures after we had made them. We worked well in groups and could measure the string and create the perimeter.
Today we took part in No Pen Day in school. We were given the author Tom Fletcher to look at. We learned about some of the books he has written and took part in fun activities linked to his book, The Creakers. We had great fun playing Hide and Creak, making Creaker Slime, creating our own Creaker and learning to sing one of the songs from the musical edition of the book. We all then performed this in our assembly. We had loads of fun and no writing was involved!
This morning we read the book ‘The Magical Garden of Claude Monet’ by Laurence Anholt. In the book, a young girl stumbles across Claude Monet’s garden, a beautiful and awe-inspiring place filled with water lilies, trees, a winding river and flowers galore. We then looked at who this famous painter was, and what his most famous paintings looked like. We used these as the inspiration to create our own water gardens using paint.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Enchanted Story Time tonight. We hope you enjoyed reading many lovely books together as a family.
Today, the children have been focusing on writing a list. We read the story The Toy’s Party and role-played making a disgusting cake.
We put in:
- Baked beans
- Tomato sauce
We then wrote a list of what we would put in our own cake.
