Forest School 31.01.2020

This afternoon we have been very lucky to be out at Forest School. The children started by doing a scavenger hunt. Children selected pictures out of Miss Abbott's special bag and then they had to go and find them around the field. We looked for daisies, spiderwebs and worms to name but a few. At the end of the session, the children went into the chicken pen and had a look at the chickens. They were even able to stroke one. They were very excited by this.

In English, the children have continued to look at the book Wombat Stew. They thought about a range of adjectives to describe what they looked like, felt like and sounded like. They then used these to write their own Australian animals poems.

In maths, the children have been exploring subtracting. They have used number lines, tens frames and partitioning to support their understanding of this.

In science, we looked at umbrellas and suitable materials to fix them if they were broken. We thought about why the materials would be suitable for an umbrella.

In English, the children have been writing instructions to make wombat stew. The final lesson of the week involved the children actually making the wombat stew which they really enjoyed. They even got to taste it!

In maths, the children have been continuing to look at number bonds to ten and using this knowledge to solve number sentences beyond ten. They have been working with tens frames and number lines.

In science, the children looked at natural and man-made materials. The children enjoyed finding out where some of these materials come from.

Week Beginning 13/01/2020

In English, we have started looking at our new book, Wombat Stew. We have really got to grips with the story and the sequencing the events from the story.

In maths, we have been focusing on our number bonds to 10 and 20 and how we can use a number line to calculate the answer,

In science, we started our new topic of everyday materials. We looked at the difference between a material and an object and considered the properties of materials.

Despite the wind and the rain on Friday, we still enjoyed spending time in the bio-dome and exploring mixing bubbles and paint with the puddles.

In English the children continued to look at the book Rapunzel. They came up with inventive ways to defeat the witch and then wrote a letter to Rapunzel explaining these.

In Science, the children looked at animals that lived on land and in water and considered the differences between them.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

Wintringham have thought about Remembrance Day this week in preparation for Monday. They created a poppy box. The reception children collaged small poppies and the year 1s used the art of pointillism. The year 1s also wrote acrostic poems about Remembrance Day.

Week Beginning 4.11.19

In English, the children have been thinking about questions this week. The children thought of questions to ask Rapunzel and then they pretended to be Rapunzel so they could answer them.

In maths, the children have been looking at subtraction and thinking about how they can work this out using practical resources.

The children are in full swing practising for the Christmas performance. They are really enjoying it and we can't wait for the finished production.

Week Beginning 25.10.19

Welcome back after half term. The children look refreshed and have come back ready for a busy term.

In English, we have started looking at our new book Rapunzel. The children compared three different versions of Rapunzel and thought about what each character looked like and their personality.

In maths, the children have continued learning about addition and thinking of different ways they can make a number. They have started to think about how addition relates to subtraction.

In science, the children named as many animals as possible and were able to categorise them under the headings, mammal, amphibian, reptile, insect, bird and fish.

Week Beginning 07/10/19

In English, the children have been focusing on retelling the story so far in the first person, 'I' and writing about how Anna felt. I have been really impressed with their writing and how some children are even starting to use, 'because.'
In maths, we have started to look at addition. The children have learnt about the part/whole model and how this links to writing addition number sentences.
In science, the children learnt about the last sense, taste. They had some marshmallows, dark chocolate and lemons to taste and to decide which category they fell into. They really enjoyed this lesson and some funny faces were made!

Week Beginning 30/09/19

In English the children have explored the setting of underwater. They labelled the nouns and used adjectives to describe what they could see and feel. They then wrote these up into sentences. I was very impressed with the writing they produced.
In maths, the children have been continuing to explore numbers and how to use a number line. They really enjoyed using the numicon to show numbers that are greater than or less than and drawing the symbols on the table.
In science, we have continued to explore our senses, focusing on hearing and smelling. The children smelt different pots and had to work out what was in each pot. Some of the smells were more pleasant than others!

Week Beginning 23/09/19

In English this week, the children have created their own map to navigate to find gold. They thought about adjectives to describe each section and then wrote instructions so that someone could follow the map.
In maths the children have further explored the sequencing of numbers, focusing on 1 less than 1 more than a number. The children are becoming confident in this area and are quickly recalling these.
In science, the children explored the sense of sight and touch. They played a game of I spy followed by pulling out objects from a feely bag and using adjectives to describe what they feel like.

Week Beginning 16/09/19

In English this week, the children have started looking at the story, ‘How to Find Gold.’ We read the first page and thought about the characters Anna and the crocodile. The children came up with some excellent adjectives to describe their appearance and personality and then they wrote these into sentences. Some children were even able to write a sentence with two adjectives in separated by a comma!

In maths, the children have been thinking about the sequencing of numbers. The children have looked at different representations and filled in missing numbers.

Our first science lesson took us on a exploration of the human body. We thought about our external body parts, where they are located and what they are used for. This has led us nicely to next weeks lesson where we will start to further explore our 5 senses.
