WOODLANDS

 

We are planning on visiting the woodland area at the junior school next Wednesday and Thursday, during school hours. In light of this, please can all children have a pair of wellington boots that they can have at school on a permanent basis. These can be stored on the boot racks located outside each classroom. 

 

Thank you 

Easimaths

Easimaths 1

I'm sure you have all seen your child's Easimaths login, located in their reading record books. We have asked the children to challenge themselves by completing at least 20 mins per week at home. Every few weeks we do look at this home learning to see how many minutes each child has achieved so far!

If you have any difficulties in accessing this activity, or you think your child could manage a higher level within Easimaths, then please consult your class teacher.

You can support your child's learning at home by encouraging them to compare amounts, asking "Which is more?" and " Which is less?".  Games are available online to support your child's understanding of place value to 10 and 20, for example The Coconut Ordering game https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/coconut-ordering on the top marks website.

Coconut Ordering - Comparing Numbers, Prices, Mass, Length ...

www.topmarks.co.uk

Coconut Ordering is a free, tablet-friendly maths game designed to help children from 5 to 11 years of age compare numbers, money, mass, length and capacity. The higher levels involve metric notation.

In LITERACY this week we will be introducing a new story to the children entitled ‘Stanley Stick’.

 The children will be learning to retell our new story, through actions and a visual story map. We will also be continuing sentences using descriptive vocabulary and finishing sentences with a full stop.

Each classroom will be transformed into a different Zone each week, which will be rotated.

 

Art Zone – The children will be learning how to sketch and draw different woodland animals, adding detail using a variety of sketching techniques. They will be making leaf prints and exploring a range of different natural materials.

 

Computing Zone – We will explore the ‘Beebots’, navigating them through a forest and embarking on an eventful woodland trail. Learning lots of facts about woodland creatures will be a focus, including learning how to use a new programme on the IPads.

 

DT Zone - This zone will include: designing and making a ‘Tree Boggart’ out of clay and natural materials. The children will learn how to make a blackberry crumble, have fun designing dens and playing lots of games!

 

Science Zone – We will be going on a hunt to find Deciduous and Evergreen trees. We will learn the similarities and differences between them and how to spot them. We will have to solve many challenges set by the Fairies and the Elves, discovering how to classify leaves and find the woodland animals!

Week Beginning 10.9.18

 

We are thrilled to be embarking on our first topic ‘The Enchanted Woodland’.  Our  topic has a magical twist as we enter The Enchanted Woodland! We will be using a variety of texts as stimuli for our imagination and our writing. We will be looking in detail at character and setting descriptions, which will develop into the children writing their own woodland stories.

 

In Maths the children will be revisiting their learning from Reception by counting to 20, both forwards and backwards and ordering numbers from smallest to largest. You can support their learning at home by counting objects e.g toys or items in a shopping basket. 

 

Each classroom will be transformed into a different Zone each week, which will be rotated.

Art Zone – The children will be learning how to sketch and draw different woodland animals, adding detail using a variety of sketching techniques. They will be making leaf prints and exploring a range of different natural materials.

 

Computing Zone – We will explore the ‘Beebots’, navigating them through a forest and embarking on an eventful woodland trail. Learning lots of facts about woodland creatures will be a focus, including learning how to use a new programme on the IPads.
