Year 5’s week

Well done Year 5!
You have worked so hard this week and concentrated brilliantly during all your tests. It has been great to see all the progress you have made and how you all tried your very best!
This week we chopped apples and left them along the wiggly path, then went back looking for evidence that been used as nutrition. We also took a close look at the wildflower garden, noticing the petal protectors on the California Poppy.
We are looking forward to performing our plays, detailing the lives of disciples from The Resurrection to Pentecost.
We also had great fun becoming band mangers and worked together to promote our made up bands. We made poster, CDs and album covers-I think we definitely have some record label managers in the making!

This week in Nursery

It’s been another busy week in Nursery, ending with the surprise arrival of our special guests- baby caterpillars to look after!

as part of our a Growing topic, we have been learning about sunflower life cycles ánd the correct names for different parts of the plant. During RE, we investigated our outdoor area to search signs of New Life and found several in our gardening area.

We have been using our Phonic knowledge to have a go at segmenting and blending short words and have started to learn how to scribe several graphemes, using the precursive script. We were very proud of ourselves for persevering when it was a little tricky to start with and not giving up!

Our outdoor area got a spring clean this week as we were given a daily challenge to find a particular shape in the environment and clean it. It now looks very clean and we developed our gross motor skills at the same time.

Have a great weekend, Nursery.

Year One’s Week!

This week Year 1 have been reading the story of Handa’s Surprise and have been busy writing their own versions of the story set here in the United Kingdom! We included some fantastic adjectives to describe the food that Handa took with her on her journey and practiced using question marks. Today we worked together in groups to role-play the story. 

In Maths we have been learning about capacity and compared containers to make estimates about which would hold the most water. 

In R.E we have continued our learning about what happened to Jesus after his resurrection, and learned this week about a special day called The Ascension that we will be celebrating soon. Can you tell someone at home what happened on this day Year 1? 

Have a super weekend everyone! 

ASDA OR PAMPERS?

Year 6 have been finding out about kidneys, today we investigated two types of nappy. 

How much water can a nappy hold before it needs changing?

How much water can a nappy hold before leaking or breaking?

  
   
    
    
    
    
   
Our results showed that ASDA nappies would keep a child drier for longer and Pamapers nappies could hold more water.

Great investigating Year 6
