Robins’ Wednesday

On Wednesdays the Robins have been working  in PE on making different shapes with their bodies and creating sequences.  Today we focussed on having tight muscles and making and holding star shapes as well as straight shapes.  The children also worked on developing their fine motor skills by threading, making peg board patterns and writing buy dog antibiotics their names in shaving foam.  They have also enjoyed a music session and visited the Computer Learning Area with Mrs Leaver!  A busy day 🙂  Could we ask that the children have shorts as well as jogging bottoms for PE please?  These are always used for indoor PE sessions.  Thank you.

Monday 28th in Blackbirds

Today we continued with our letter writing and were very quiet for a few minutes! We were also busy estimating and measuring things with a ruler and tape measure.

We are working hard in school to learn our spellings but need some help at home too. Look out for a copy of your child’s test in their bags this Wednesday as some of you have been asking how they got on.

Wood peckers 28.9.15

A lovely day in Woodpeckers, we completed our spelling tests, looked at our new spellings and did our weekly maths tests. All the children worked hard doing some reading and answering questions on what they had read in detail. In the afternoon we created a comic strip showing our feelings when in a new situation.
Thankyou for another hardworking day.

Bookmark competition!

The children have brought home a competition entry form today!  ‘Young Writers’ would love them to design a bookmark inspired by reading – information is on the sheet.  Entries should be returned to me on Monday 28th September as the closing date is the 30th! Good luck and have fun!  🙂

Blackbirds Mathletics log in details

Good evening,

Another lovely day in Blackbirds, we were learning to tell the time this morning, o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We started to look at food chains and wrote postcards to the teacher from Michael, the character in our book ‘Dear Teacher’. You will find their log-in details for Mathletics in the reading diaries.


Blackbirds 16.10.15

We had a busy day today, with cooks on the move. We made bread rolls and then told Mrs Berridge how to make them.
In maths we have been looking at halves and quarters. We found a half and a quarter of different 2D shapes.
We carried on looking at our own fable stories and marked them together and changed some sentences to meet our success criteria.
In topic we investigated polar bears and started to create a polar bear picture.

Blackbirds 17.9.15

Good evening,
The Blackbirds worked hard adding and subtracting today. We have also started writing our stories based on a character or animal found under the stairs. The room was very quiet as they concentrated hard on their stories.
Thankyou for a lovely day.

Robins’ Wednesday

The Robins have had another busy day today!  We are working on our baseline assessments and the children have also been having fun with cutting and sticking, drawing themselves at school and today they had their first session in the Computer Learning Suite with Mrs Leaver 🙂
