Acorns started ‘Walk to School’ week off with a lovely stroll to the local park where some of us were experiencing the joys of a local park for the very first time.
Later on in the week, we were looking at sequencing familiar activities and following instructions in order. As we were reading ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, naturally we made porridge and got to eat the fruits of our labour! What was quite amusing is that the children were using the story language without even realising…… “Miss Mockford, this porridge is too hot!”
Year 6 have had a very busy half term. SATs are complete and they worked incredibly hard to achieve their full potential. We are all so proud of them. They worked so hard that some even had a nap afterwards…
I promise I was just resting my eyelids with them! Do not worry we were all in the capable hands of Mrs Driver and Mrs Hake!
As a reward we headed off to Thorpe Park on Monday and enjoyed many thrilling rides (not so much for Mrs Hake).
Some of the children even enjoyed the soaking wet ride!
Myself and Mrs Driver wanted to make sure they enjoyed the ride as much as they could so thought we would give them a helping hand..
One more final half term left of Primary School for this bunch, here’s to lots of fun and adventures over the next 7 weeks!
Cherry class have been learning about plants. Today we went out into the school grounds to identify different trees by looking at their leaves. We learnt some new vocabulary too! Ask you child what evergreen and deciduous trees are!
Fir class loved trying lots of different types of bread ready for making their own Viking inspired loaves.
Today we retold the story of the Three Billy Goat’s Gruff using props. We thought you would like to read it.
As part of Walk to School week, we all walked to the park this morning. We had great fun there and then walked back to school.
This week we have been making wanted posters to warn everyone about the Big Bad Wolf. We made necklaces with repeating patterns to cheer Grandma up and made a chocolate cake in the microwave to share at snack time (Grandma did not get any of the cake!).
We have been exploring percentages this week and looking at the links between decimals and fractions. We matched up different representations and then added more of our own.
