To celebrate the end of our learning about Handa's Surprise and the fantastic writing we have been doing, we got to try all of the fruits from the story. Here you can see us tasting banana, tangerine, mango, pineapple, avocado and passion fruit. We were very brave and all tried every fruit. I think you can see there are some we enjoyed more than others!
Moon rocks in Cherry Class! We were very excited to spend time observing the moon rocks this week. Once we had inspected them all with our magnifying glasses, we learnt more about the moon landings and had a good think about what we would take with us if we went to the moon. Pictures of our family, our favourite food and of course a cuddly toy were all great ideas.
Happy Chinese New Year from Cherry Class! We had a great day celebrating the Chinese New Year. We made Chinese dragon masks, wrote our name in Chinese, learnt about the Chinese Zodiac (we are all horses or snakes!) and had a delicious themed lunch. We thought it was very funny that Mr.Smith was born during the year of the pig!
We continue to observe the cherry tree to see how it changes throughout the different seasons. Here, the children observed Autumn coming to an end with the final leaves falling. As you can see, we had a lot of fun with the fallen leaves! We've made predictions about what we think the tree will do next.
What a wonderful Christmas Nativity! The children in Key Stage 1 did a beautiful job bringing this years show 'Christmas Counts' to life with their wonderful singing, enthusiastic acting, precise signing and stunning smiles. Here are the children of Cherry class looking very proud of themselves in their costumes after putting on a spectacular performance.
In Maths, we have been solidifying our understanding of numbers from 0-10. Mr. Smith set the challenge for children to represent these numbers, in order, using all the different resources available. As you can see, the children did very well!
We have started subtraction and the children are very enthusiastic about it! We started by getting on the bus and seeing how many children were left once some reached their destination. Next, we listened to some subtraction stories using cubes and buses to represent what was happening in the story.
In Science, we have been using our five senses to learn about their difference and the organs we need to use them. We took part in a carousel where we were feeling different materials, smelling different smells, listening to different instruments, looking for different objects and tasting different food. It was a lot of fun!
In maths, we have been looking at the comparison signs (greater than, less than and equal to). We used crocodiles to help us remember which way the sign goes when comparing two numbers. The crocodile always eats the biggest number! Then, we would read the statements to each other "4 is less than 9."
Diwali Day We learnt all about Diwali and the festival of lights. During the day, we read stories about Diwali, created our own Rangoli design plates and took part in a dance workshop. It was a lot of fun!
Guy Fawkes Night After learning about the story of Guy Fawkes, we made our own firework displays using a range of different art medias. We used pens, pastels, colouring pencils and aquarelles to create different fireworks and then brought them all together to make our display.
ZONES Of Regulation. We explored what it feels like to be in all the different ZONES and decided that the best place for us to be is the Green Zone. Can you guess what emotion we're showing?
In maths we have been exploring all the different ways we can show our numbers from 0-10. We have used counters, Numicon, dinosaurs, dienes, cubes and dots. We did so much counting our mouths became tired!
In Science, we have been learning all about the body parts. After naming the body parts in our class quiz we went outside to draw around each other and jump from limb to limb finding the different parts of the body being called out. After that, we decorated them with beautiful smiles and cool clothes.
In our Religious Education lessons, we have been observing the world around us and all the unique things on our planet. We went on a seasonal walk and found natural objects such as rocks, leaves, conkers, plants, trees, feathers, berries and shells and made predictions about where we think they came from.
