This week group 4 had great fun painting story Stones for the story the Gruffalo. We didn’t have enough characters for all the children, so they came up with the idea to work in pairs. We then had the problem of which partner would take the stone home. After great discussion they decided to leave the Stones at school in an area where their parents could see their beautiful learning. Great problem solving!
Today, children in Year 6 have enjoyed their first full day of activities ranging from raft building, survivor, vertical challenge, giant swing, sensory trail and Jacob’s ladder. All the children showed great risk taking and set themselves goals of what they wanted to achieve. Lots of happy children this evening.
Y2 have been extending their computing skills by creating folders and copying files [and putting them into their newly created folders]. They then used an outline of the Queen (to fit in with our topic) and learnt how to use the fill tool to turn them into Andy Warhol style pieces of art. I can’t wait to see them all together, but here’s a sneak preview. I am so impressed by how much Y2 have learnt in such a short space of time!
An enjoyable afternoon playing out in the sun, followed by a delicious dinner and ending with cake for Albie’s birthday and Capture the Flag activity. All the children are now tucked up in bed as teachers wait for silence.
In Reception we are learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We have created our own stories using each other as the characters. We are looking forward to sharing our stories with Year 1 at the end of the week.
Today we took advantage of the glorious weather and have spent plenty of time learning outside. Children have learnt together to solve problems, find treasure and help each other achieve their aims.
When we came inside, we listened carefully to a story and identified lots of words with the ar sound in, which is our sound of the day.
