Well done to Robyn who is our star this week. Class 1 have focused on counting in 2’s and 10’s in Maths, we practised our mental recall by counting objects and filled missing numbers in each sequence. In our PE lessons we have been focusing on Athletics. We have been practising our running techniques making sure we drive our arms and look forwards. We have also been practising jumping and throwing using the javelin. Our techniques are improving each time so we will be raring to go when sports day arrives! Throughout our topic of ‘Minibeasts’ we have been getting very creative during our Art lessons with Mrs Hebron. We have created our own minibeasts using tights that have been stuffed with wool. We used paint and different collage materials to decorate them. There were ladybirds, worms and butterflies and they looked fab so we have put them up around our garden centre. In music we have been focusing on recognising and following a beat. We looked at syllables of words and sang the words to the beats then we played instruments to fast and slow beats.
Our star this week is Oliver who impressed Mrs Bowtell with his extra maths homework and blew our socks off in assembly when he halved two and three digit numbers for the whole school!
Our star this week is Roman who has shown his skill in doubling and halving numbers in maths.
On Wednesday 27th April Reception went on a trip to Low Barns Nature Reserve. Although we didn’t have great weather and it was freezing all day, we really enjoyed ourselves and learnt lots of new things about birds and mini-beasts. We started our day pond dipping and the children worked in pairs using their nets to find different types of animals. We found that the water was really clean so to our surprise we found lots of amazing little creatures such as pond worms and Ramshorn snails. Straight after, we went to the bird hide to spot the birds that were feeding in the trees, there were so many different types and we used binoculars so we could see them really close up. After lunch we went back to feed the birds and as we watched them we had to make sure we were really still and quiet so we didn’t frighten them. Soon after, we went on our mini-beast hunt and we looked at the bug hotel and learnt what different environments they like to live in. Finally, we went to the planting area to see if we could spot anymore mini-beasts. Working in pairs, we looked all over and then Ollie and Robyn found a beetle and Roman and Aidan found a centipede! We walked back to the centre in a human centipede line and then it was time to go back to school! Although we were very tired and very cold, we had a superb trip!
Our star this week is Grace who asked such fabulous questions on our school trip to Low Barns. Well done!
