Hope you have enjoyed the homework we set. Look out for next weeks on Monday morning.
After the visit by Falconers we bought some sterilised owl pellets. We put on gloves and slowly took them apart. We were surprised by how many bones we found covered in fur. Amazingly each group had a different mammel!
Amethyst and Amber class had a fantastic day walking up and around Rodborough Fort for Sports Relief. Was it muddy, puddley and fun…yes it was. We walked 4.9 miles which we think is pretty good going.Pooh sticks the fastest ever!
Thank you if you helped raise money for this good cause.
Thank you for all the fab costumes and the books we got to read.
Yesterday we had a fantastic visit from the falconer who brought a range of birds of prey in including a Barn owl called Bramble. We learnt lots of facts which we will be using when we start start Plop the owl who was afraid of the dark.
And to end a fantastic term we had bedtime story by the fire, lit by our lanterns. Hot chocolate and marshmallows and a raft of stories.
This week we had an assembly for parents. We told the story of sleeping beauty with Pie Corbett actions, danced to Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky and sang the song There was a princess long ago. After, parents came to look at our books and see what we have been doing.
This week we looked at being brave. We brought in photos and objects to talk about.
A fantastic day and a top competition. Thanks to all the parents that braved the cold.
Once upon a time there was not 1, not 2 but 3 litttle pigs.
We made houses that we hoped would stay up. Look what happened when the big bad wolf came along!
What did Red Riding Hood take to Granmas house? Jam tarts of course.
Today we found the mass of flour and marge needed to make pastry.We rolled and cut. We added jam and baked. Some of us put too much jam!!
We took the children to the post office in town to post some letters they had written. We weighed, stamped, paid and posted them.
We had a fantastic time at the Pantomime……oh no we didin’t! Tweddy made us laugh and laugh.
Can you believe that we’re a third of the way through the year. The children have been amazing learning so many new things.
Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you so much for supporting the reverse advent calendar for Kidstuff. As a result we are able to send off this huge box of toys to improve the Christmas of others.
on Thursday we met Tamsin from Stroud Valley’s project. She brought some toy hedgehogs in which you could put a flask of hot water. In four groups we had to make a home for a hedgehog that was snug and warm. We put them in their homes, with the jar in and left them. Poor Bob got left out in the cold. When we went back we found that the hedgehogs were cooler but not as cold as Bob.
Do you recall spending money as a child and how confusing it was? No 4p, no 7p and no 9p. To follow on from our work on numbers bonds we have been using money to shop and buy our fruit and milk.
We walked to Heavens today. It was glorious. We paddled in the stream brrr. The hill back was hard.
Can you see our bear shapes for our Toy Box dance?
To end the topic Healthy Eating we decided to have a picnic for families and Bears/toys, that had been in our memory bags. We made our own picnics and chose healthy fillings, salds, veg and fruit. it was a beuatiful day.
We are learning about pitch high and low. We watched a violinist play on the internet. Today we were lucky that a child in y2 came to play to us.
We are finding out about our senses and what they. Today we were smelling a range of smells. Ask your child what they were.
This week we read the Last Noo Noo as part of our topic. We saw Marlon the monster being bullied and talked about how we can ask for help if we felt unhappy on the playground. We also designed, made and tested Noo Noo snatchers.
When Amethyst class were in EYFS they planted some wheat seeds with Tamsin from Stroud valley project, they watered and cared for them. In the summer Mrs Golding harvested them. This week Tamsin came back and we had to learn to take off the chaff, mill the grain, make the dough and make hedgehog rolls to eat.
Ask your child all about it.
On Wednesday we went to our first Forest school. We walked to Rodborough fields to pick blackberries. Then today we peeled apples, crumbled crumble topping and made blackberry crumble. Tomorrow we will taste it.
We have been sorting and counting in Maths. We can sort by colour, shape name, fruit name and shoe fastening. Can you think of any more ways with your child?
We have had a lovely first week back. All book bags are now home so hoefully you can find time to read.
We have been looking at how we can be kind to people. How to empower children and young people to celebrate their differences. We looked at the importance of feeling valued and how to prevent bullying.
