Morning everyone. Hope you are all well. Please check the blog below, regularily, for updates and photos from friends. When lock down ends we will be together again.
Today we started to learn about money. We need to recognise all the cooins up to £2.00 and understand their worth. It was very confusing because there are no 3p,4p,7p, or 9p so when we started adding numbers to shop for our fruit and milk, together, it was confusing. We had to pay with the right coins. some of us were cheeky and bought one then went back for the other.
We were very lucky to work alongside Stroud Valley in a Science project. We had to make a home for a toy hedgehog. We put a hot water bottle inside and left them whilst we had a hot chocolate. There was a control hedgehog left in the cold. Finally we felt our hidden hedgehog and the control one and guess what we discovered?
What a great term we have. We enjoyed our topic. Earned lots of house points and finished the term making our own bread, making a picnic and singing songs round the camp fire. Have a safe and fun break til we see you in November
We have been finding out mass by balancing.
Diwali is celebrated round the word by Hindus. It is special day of eating, lighting lamps, wearing new clothes and giving thanks. We made a curry, painted Rangoli patterns on our door mat and found out about Rama and Sita.
Do you remember the greater than and less then signs. We do.
WE have been reading Jane Hissey’s Old Bear. We have been writing what the characters are saying to each other using speech bubbles.
We have be so lucky to be leant a topic box from the Museum in the Park full of old toys, playground and home. We wore gloves to handle them and work out how they worked. We loved the new old playground games we learnt and have playe them lots ever since.
Here’s a taste of what we have been doing.
Welcome back to school and welcome to Amethyst class. We are looking forward to meeting you tomorrow.
We have settled in well and are enjoying our topic.
This week we used knives and peelers for the first time. We peeled apples and made crumble. We cooked it in the oven then we ate it -yummy!
world book day

We had a lovely day. Our class used the book Alice in Wonderland as our focus. We played flamingo croquet, made Queen of heart tarts and looked at the Heart Art by Romero Britto. At the end of the day we had a Mad Hatters tea party. What a great day for all and such fun. Have a super Easter and we look forward to the next topic.

We’ve had such a lovely week. very bust and active. We’ve been learning and applying our two times tables, using adjectives and writing stories. At forest school we made a life size skeleton of a Stegosaurus. Then found out what was known about them.

Morning everyone. Great excitment in the Golding house. The bluetitis have been going into our nestbox.
This week’s bird to spot is the blue tit. Unlike birds such as the flamingo, which get their feather colour from a pigment in their food, blue feathers are all to do with their structure. Tiny air pockets inside ‘blue’ feathers scatter light which makes them look blue. This is why if you’re ever lucky enough to find a blue feather that they seem to change colour when you change their angle to the light. Maybe if you see one you can send them to / add them to your tree at www.wildclassrooms.org
