Welcome to Foal's Class!
Mrs Tatham teaches the Foals and Miss O'Brien and Mrs Summerfield are the teaching assistants. We are really excited to welcome your children to our class and we have lots of fun things planned for them.
Our P.E. days are on a Tuesday. Please bring Reading Folders into school on a Tuesday and a Friday.
We began this half term by continuing to do some great learning both in school and at home. Then we have all enjoyed being back at school with our friends!
This week we have bean learning all about the Easter story. The children have written Easter messages for their Easter cards and we have looked for signs of spring in our area. We have made chocolate Easter nests and looked at the chocolate as it melted. We have had an Easter bonnet parade. We also had an Easter egg hunt!
In maths we have been looking at more than ten and less than ten with a group of objects and looking at pairs of numbers that make 9 and 10.
Captain Sir Tom Moore
This week we have been learning all about Captain Sir Tom Moore. We wrote facts about him for literacy. We liked him taking his motorbike into school and hiding it in the playground. He also had a dog called Billy and liked to bake and go on adventures. We talked about his adventures and drew where we would choose to go on an adventure. We even used our observational skills to draw pencil pictures of him. We looked at the 100 square to compare our ages. 100 for Captain Sir Tom and 4 or 5 for us. We found out about Florence Nightingale and how she changed hospitals during the war. She was known as the ‘lady of the lamp’ so we had a go at making our own.
We were super scientists and made rainbows by using felt tip pens on rainbow shaped kitchen towels by dipping them in water and watching the colour ‘bleed’ into the towel.
In Maths we explored different ways of making six and wrote the corresponding addition number sentences.
The Colour Monster continued.......
This week we have continued learning using the colour monster book. We created our own page for the book focusing on the feeling of worry. We voted for the colour brown to represent the feeling of worry. We mixed red and green paint to make brown to paint our colour monsters. We have been Super Scientists by making some cabbage water which was blue and changed it to pink by adding vinegar and then purple by adding bicarbonate of soda. We then added a big spoonful and it exploded!
We also learnt all about St Patrick's Day and celebrated by making flags, hats and leprechauns. It was also Comic Relief and we dressed up as Disney characters.
In maths this week we have been sequencing daily events as well as looking at two dimensional shapes. We found lots in our environment.
What a busy week!
The Colour Monster
We welcomed back all our friends to school this week. We have settled back into the school routine amazingly well so we have all been chosen for 'Star of The Week'.
This week we have started to read the book 'The Colour Monster' and focused on the feeling of being happy and the colour yellow. We have talked and written about what makes us happy. We looked at and discussed sunflowers and Vincent Van Gogh's painting of sunflowers. Then we used pastels to draw our own sunflower independently!
We have mixed different shades of yellow to paint our own colour monster, used our observational skills to look at yellow fruit and vegetables and made models of the colour monster using yellow play dough. In maths we have been naming and talking about the properties of 3D shapes and creating repeating patterns.
What a great week back at school. Well done Foals!
The First Christmas
