Butterfly Release Day!

Butterfly Release Day! 1

 

           

 

Learning Through Play Every Day!

 

What a fantastic first term! We have all been very busy learning. Why don't you have a go at ordering your numbers from 1-20 and if that's too easy...keep going! You can also use your 'Getting Ready to Write' booklet and 'Getting Ready for Numbers' booklet for lots of playful ideas- check out the homework tab above for these. Keep on practising those sounds and key words and have a go at reading any simple words you see at home using your sounds. A huge well done to everyone who had received their 50 reads certificate and an even bigger wow to those with their 75 and 100 certificate!

Learning in Action - Dino Maths!

16th January 2018

We all had 'a roaring good time'!

 Watch out for that dinosaur Miss Jeffs!

 

Thanks to everyone who came. We had lots of fun dinosaur maths activities. Here are some of the things we were learning to do:

  • Adding and recording using spikes on the Stegosaurus
  • Practising our number formation by excavating  numbered dinosaurs
  • Measuring and offering dino footprints
  • Estimating the size of a life-size T-Rex footprint
  • Sequencing dino footprints to 20
  • Designing and making our own dinosaurs using 2d shapes 

 

Few! What a lot of learning!

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sammy the Bearded Dragon Comes to Visit

January 2018

 

We are all very interested in dinosaurs at the minute so we had the opportunity to meet Miss Jeffs' bearded dragon. It  was very spikey, scaly and rough with long claws and yellow eyes. It looked like a real modern day, tiny dinosaur!

  Learning in Action - Phonics   

 

      A big thank you to everyone who came to our Phonics Learning in Action - 

19th October 2017

Here are just a few comments from the feedback today:

 

    It’s a fantastic way to learn their letters. Great stuff!  Wish school had been this fun when I went!

 

    Lovely insight into learning phonics. They all love to learn!

 

     It was a fantastic seeing the children learn. It was a great experience and I have learnt too!

 

     Great teaching – was great to see them enjoying the letters. One very proud mum!

 

    Getting Ready to Write.... 

          

The children are practising how to hold their pencil correctly. We describe it as:

'Fred the frog, sits on the log.'

This describes the frog legs which pinch (pincer) the pencil and the log is the middle finger which the pencil balances on. Try using this little reminder to help them at home too.

 

 

Try this little trick at home to help with pencil grip. Place a pom pom in your child's hand and get them to grip it with their two fingers - whilst holding their pencil!

 

 

 

 

9/10/17 Our visit to the 'Secret Garden'. You will never guess what we found!
