Term 5 2017-18
Our learning this term
The children have thoroughly enjoyed this term’s topic on Our Wonderful World.
A real highlight of this term was our school trip to Rushall Farm and Ella’s Kitchen. The children loved riding on the tractor and seeing all the animals. They even got to hold a lamb! Ella’s Kitchen was great fun too! The children enjoyed planting seeds, digging for worms and learning about all the plants in the garden. The children were very eager to water their seeds every day and watched with fascination as they grew!
The children continue to amaze us with their fantastic writing. In Literacy we have been learning the stories The Tiny Seed, Jack and the Beanstalk and Percy the Park Keeper. During free flow the children have been very keen to apply their learning by making story maps and labelling the parts of a flower (amongst many other things!)
We have been busy in our Maths lessons too – halving, doubling, sharing and estimating are just a few of the concepts we have covered. The children are so keen to apply their Maths in their play which is always wonderful to see. The below photographs show children making repeating patterns and practising their estimating and counting.
Palm and Rowan classes enjoyed presenting their class assemblies. The children loved showing you their work and singing their songs. Maple class assembly will be taking place next term on Tuesday June 12th
We have started rehearsing and the children are very much looking
forward to their performance!
We enjoyed our celebrations for the Royal Wedding! The children dressed up in red, white and blue and had fun doing lots of wedding-themed activities. Making crowns, designing bunting, singing and dancing to name just a few!
Our topic next term is Amazing Animals! We will have our last trip to forest school at the start of term. If you would like to volunteer then please speak to your child’s teacher.
We hope you have a lovely holiday and look forward to seeing you soon. Please keep encouraging your child to read and write and of course, to complete their ‘wow’ sheet over the holidays. It is always lovely to hear their holiday news!
