Welcome to Cub's Class!
Mrs Morris teaches the Cubs. Miss O'Brien, Mrs. Summerfield are the teaching assistants in Foundation 2.
We are really excited to welcome your children to our class and we have lots of fun things planned for them.
PE is on a Tuesday
Reading book bags can be brought to school on a Tuesday and Friday.
We are continuing with some great learning both in school and at home.
This week our text has been The Three Billy Goats Gruff. After reading the story we created a story map and enjoyed role playing the story both inside and outside. We even used the appropriate voices for the characters! Then we able to write some speech bubbles for the characters. Can you spot us doing some Three Billy Goats Gruff story yoga? We grew some tasty green grass for the goats too in the small world.
In maths we have been ordering numbers and exploring ways of using two numbers to make totals of nine and ten. We have been writing our own addition number sentences.
We have also had fun making handprint goats and building a bridge across the river.
The children are doing some great learning! Scroll down below to see what we have been doing each week both at school and at home. Well done Cubs!
What a busy half term it has been both at school and at home. This week our text has been Jack and the Beanstalk. We have enjoyed retelling the story in the small world using our own words. We followed instructions to plant a bean seed and made a castle to put in the pot. I wonder whose bean seed will grow to the castle first? We thought of alternative words to describe the size of the giant and made a giant cookie. But look out! who's that? Can you spot the giant?
In maths we have been measuring, comparing and ordering objects by length. We made some play dough bean stalks and measured them using paper clips.
This week our text has been the story of The Three Little pigs. We have put the events of the story in order and enjoyed role play using the appropriate voices for each character. We wanted to find the wolf after he had run away so we wrote 'Wanted' posters. We also did some Three Little Pigs reading activities.
We have been learning all about heavy and light during maths and ordering objects by weight.
We have been engineers building houses that are strong enough to withstand the huff and puff of the wolf. We used a hairdryer to test the strength of our houses.
This week we have focused on birds. We have been observing birds outside and talking about what we have seen. We even have a very own resident robin! To encourage the birds we made bird feeders. As part of our literacy we wrote the instructions for making the bird feeder. We have labelled a blackbird and learned some facts about robins including completing a robin reading challenge!
In maths we have been number detectives! We have investigated different numbers. We arranged six birds on two branches in different ways. We also investigated ways of making eight by arranging spots on a ladybird.
We continue to do some great home learning too! Look at what we have done. Camouflaged bird spotting binoculars, painted stones, bird feeders....!
Our story this week has been the Elves and The Shoemaker. We have been looking at and talking about all sorts of different shoes! We have written about our favourite pair of shoes and designed and made shoes. We have written about what would happen if our shoes were magical! We have estimated and counted how many cubes fit in different sized shoes. We have also counted how many pairs of shoes fit in a dinosaur footprint!
This week we have been enjoying the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have completed some great learning both in school and at home. We have role played the story using different voices for the characters. We have written about our favourite part of the story and made cards for the Three Bears to say sorry from Goldilocks. We have been reading, writing and ordering numbers to twenty.
We have also been engineers, designing and making a chair for the Three Bears for them to sit on and watch a film together!
This week we have been Arctic explorers! We made some binoculars to look at the environment and observe the animals that live there. We drew pictures of Arctic animals and wrote facts about the Arctic including learning about Inuits. For our reading challenge we had to dress up as an Arctic explorer by reading instructions that told us what to put on.
We did lots of counting and played a number game.
The First Christmas
Here is Cubs and Foals Christmas performance. They have done amazingly well. We hope you enjoy it!
We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
We have enjoyed exploring our new environment and have been doing lots of great learning!
Cub's children from 2019-2020
We took part in sport relief. We had to collect four different coloured bands. Well done Cubs! You were amazing!
We had lots of fun exploring and investigating during science week. We used our observational skills and discussed what we saw. You can look at what we did in the photos below!
