Ash class have enjoyed the new ‘Busy Fingers’ activity outside. They have also been outside for some maths this week alongside Beech. The activities completed were; measuring how far a paper aeroplane flew, counting how many cars could be raced down a drainpipe in 1 minute, rolling a movement and number dice and exploring shapes using a range of objects. Why not have a go at home.
Here are the winners for KS1, Years 3/4 and Years 5/6. Daisy from Beech was the EYFS winner. Well done to everyone for a great effort with this homework, as a whole staff we were very impressed!
Phonics sounds for this week are below. ‘ur’, ‘ow’ ,’oi’. If you have been having problems with the videos working, please let your class teacher know and we can email them to you.
The scene is set! We are ready to take delivery of our book fair on Monday! We will be open straight after school all week. Monday will be in Larch Class and then in the hall for the remainder of the week. Come and support us, keep your children reading and help raise funds for our school library!
Ash class have enjoyed exploring weight in maths this week. They have used heavier and lighter to describe objects. Today they were human scales using two bags for life and objects from around the classroom. Wonderful to hear the children talking sentences to compare objects, for example, “the globe is heavier than the superhero.”
On Tuesday, 8 members of the school football team had a fantastic opportunity to attend a Watford football club primary stars tournament. The team played amazing football and were the team in our group to beat. Unfortunately St Albert the Great were stronger and they went through to the semi finals, then the final which they then won. Mrs Chapman, Mr Creamer and I were very proud of their footballing skills and team work.
After half term our new topic will be ‘Twisted Tales’. The children voted for the new role play area and the winner was a fairytale castle. The children were given a half term challenge and Ms Schofield has been busy creating as well – it all started with a very large cardboard box. Looking forward to seeing all of your creations next week.
Ash class were very excited on Thursday during the dinosaur workshop. They got to meet both a baby and juvenile T-Rex. Check out Learning Journals after half term to see if your child was brave enough to get up close to the juvenile T-Rex. Ash class made fantastic palaeontologists as they carefully explored artefacts for carnivores, herbivores and other life.
