It’s been hot!! To keep ourselves cool we had fun with the water learning about capacity, and even got our feet wet afterwards. We all dreamt of rainy days and did some lovely water colours of a wet day with a rainbow.
Year 1S has been learning about seasons. We went into the school ‘orchard’ and picked up some fresh apples off the ground, and plums off the tree. Children talked about summer and we even tried some of the fruit! They were delicious!
Although the rain kept us inside, we still had lots of fun at our Jubilee Party! Year 1 had party food, dancing and games. The children also learnt lots about the Queen and her long reign.
This week we have been learning positional language. The children learnt; left, right, forwards, backwards, quarter turn, half turn, three quarter turn and whole turn. They had fun directing their friends around the playground using only this language, and then programming a beebot to travel to a planned destination.
Year 1 and 2 searched through old toys and brought them in for a big toy sale as part of the Reuse, Reduce, Recycle pledge for Earth Day. The children enjoyed giving new life to old toys! Thank you for your contributions we will keep you updated with how we use the proceeds to enhance our school environment.
We had Reverend Jon Taylor from St Bartholomew’s church come and take some Easter assemblies today. He told us the Easter story and spoke about why Easter is a special celebration for Christians. He also taught us some new songs!
