What we have been learning:

This week we have continued our learning on the topic of Space. We have:

  • Looked at spacesuits from a long time ago, the space suits that astronauts wear now and spacesuits that scientists think might be worn in the future.
  • Watched a video of the moon landing.
  • Learned how Craters are formed and tried to make some ourselves
  • Read our class text of the ‘Whatever Next’ story and made a simple story map to help us remember it so that we can adapt it ourselves.

We have also:

  • Enjoyed our big PE session using coloured hoops to play a game called ‘Shark attack!’. The children had to find an island (hoop) before the sharks caught them.
  • On Thursday, the children undertook some challenges in family groups with the KS1 children. In their groups the children took part in a scavenger hunt and tried to make their jigsaw puzzles before an adult shook the tambourine.

Reception

We learnt new sounds qu, ch, sh and th using our new scheme Bug Club. We have particularly enjoyed using our wands to skywrite the letters in the digraphs. In maths, we have continued learning about patterns and have enjoyed making ABB patterns.

Nursery

The children have been continued looking at their book ‘A Wet Walk’ and have enjoyed listening for sounds inside the school building and in the surrounding areas of the school.  In maths the children have begun to focus on the number 2 and the ‘twoness’ of 2.

What we have been learning:

This week we have continued our learning on the topic of Space. We have:

  • Been looking at Aliens through our book ‘Beegu’ and debating what it means to visit somewhere you haven’t been before.
  • We have discussed what it means to be lost on a different planet and how this would make us feel.

We also celebrated Chinese New Year by learning about the different zodiac years, how they celebrate, why, and trying some traditional Chinese food that we cooked ourselves.

 

We have also:

  • Enjoyed our big PE session playing a new game called ‘Farmers, sheep and wolves’.
  • Continued to think about ‘special places’ in our RE learning and learnt about the special holy place that Christians go to called a Church.
  • Looked at Chinese New Year in which the children role played a Chinese restaurant and then made their own food to taste.

 

Reception

We started using our new Phonics scheme ‘Bug Club’ and we have revised some of our Phase 3 sounds through segmenting and blending CVC words and writing short sentences in our phonics books. In maths, we have continued learning about patterns and have enjoyed making AB and ABC patters with a variety of different resources within and outside the classroom.

Nursery

The children have been continuing their Phase 1 phonics and have been introduced to our new Phonics scheme ‘Bug Club’. The children have started looking at their book ‘A Wet Walk’ and their phonics learning will be based on this for the next few weeks. In maths, the children have looked at 1 and 2 through singing songs, playing games and using resources such as animals.

What we have been learning:

We have started our new topic ‘Space.’ The children had a session on Tuesday deciding what they would like to find out during their learning this half term. They have found out about the different planets and listened to ‘the planet song’. Later on in the week we started our new Jigsaw topic ‘Dreams and Goals’ during which the children were given a challenge of being blind folded and trying to pick out a certain type of sequin from a tray of different types of sequins. We also started our new RE topic ‘Which places are special and why’ and had our Big PE session on Friday in which the children took part in running games.
