Spooky Science Day Part 1

This afternoon we started our Spooky Science Day. We designed pumpkin faces using our knowledge of shapes that we have been learning in maths. We scooped, drew and carved our pumpkin, looking closely at the innards and talking about what we found inside. It also gave a nice, autumnal smell in our classroom!

Tomorrow we have another full day planned of Spooky Science Activities…

Hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween evening :o)

Reception Rosen’s Village

Wow, what amazing effort was put into the fabulous houses that the children made for their homework. We made a little village in our classroom, and even got to eat two of the houses as they were made from yummy gingerbread!

 

Well done to all of the children that made a fabulous house! We can’t wait to see what you create on the next homework!

BOOK CLUB IS BACK!

On Friday the Book Club starts again for Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children.

If you wish to join the first Book Club on Friday 1st November you MUST return your contract to school by Thursday 31st October.

Don’t worry, you can still join in after this date, so please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like a contract and wish your child to join in next week. There are lots of great prizes to receive along the way, as well as becoming better readers, writers and speakers!

Thank you so much to all of the parents who attended the meeting today, hugely appreciated!

Design and Technology Day

The children have worked hard today. They created their own Dojo Monsters Characters.  They linked their learning to their knowledge of shapes and pattern, which we have been learning about in Maths. We focused on fine motor skills such as; using glue correctly, holding scissors, drawing around a template and cutting it out, and they even included a simple join using a split pin, making their Dojo’s have a waving arm or moving leg. They filled in a design sheet and then used their designs to create the monsters. Well done reception!!!
