Fun outside!

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. 

Half term challenge 

Over half term Ash class were challenged to create a prop or resource using inspiration from fairy tales and traditional stories. The children have proudly spoken about their creations and all home learning is now being used in the Role Play, Small World or Maths area. 

Heavier or lighter?

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.”

Fabulous Y6 Football Tournament

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.

Fairytale castle

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. 

Dinosaur workshop 

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.
