What did the Ladybird hear?

Thursday 26th November 2020
This week in Maths we have been exploring addition and subtraction. We have used a variety of resources and games to help us become more confident. 

Friday 19th November - 2020

Today we came into school to see something very strange. We saw eggs, glittery footprints and lots of colourful feathers. Mr Page and Mrs Marston visited to tell us they had seen something on the school cameras and would we help to solve the mystery! We watched the videos and saw colourful eggs rolling around hatching. We thought it could be the Sunggly Snerd that we had been reading about in school. Dertmined to solve the mystery we went on a Snerd hunt around the school and we saw many clues but sadly no Snerd! When we got back to the classroom there was another trail of feathers which led to a tasty surprise for us... Chocolate coins! Thanks Sunggly Snerd they were delicious.

Today we had a fantastic day celebrating Mickey Mouse's 92nd birthday. We started the day making cakes and treats for the party, as well as creating pictures and cards for Mickey Mouse. In the afternoon we had a year group party, where we danced and played party games. To finish our day, we ate some party food and watched the first ever Mickey Mouse cartoon, called Steamboat Willie.

Today we have a fantastic day celebrating children in need. We started the day doing PE with Joe wicks and couldn't believe how long he had been exercising as we were exhausted after 20 minutes! We then drew pictures and made some spotty biscuits. We looked at why Children in need raise money and were glad that we are able to help.

We have been learning all about Diwali today. We watched the story of Rama and Sita and talked about the importance of this festival. We each made a Diva Lamp, we decorated them with brightly coloured gems and lots of sparkles!

We really enjoyed learning about why we wear poppies today. We talked about the Soldiers who went to the wars and their families. We watched a clip about how the poppies grew around the soldiers. We did some amazing pieces of art to commemorate them.

We had a wonderful day today. We learnt all about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate Bonfire night. We decided to build our own bonfire and create our own firework display. We danced with our fireworks around the fire and even toasted marshmallows! Even though we won't get to celebrate it properly this year, we had a truly magical time celebrating it in school.

We have a very busy day acting out the story of the Gruffalo. We created character headbands and worked with our friends to re-tell the story. We then put on a performance at the end of the day.

We went on a Leaf-man hunt today. We searched all around the school. We found lots of clues as we went around. The wind had blown him high and low and we really enjoyed this mini adventure.

We have been reading Each, Peach, Pear, Plum this week so we decided to do some fruit tasting. We all had a try of the fruits and surprised ourselves when we liked them. Parrots liked plums the best and Swans and Robins liked Pears the best.
