In science this half term, we have explored and investigated forces. The children have explored drag forces and investigated how items of different sizes and weight fall to the ground. Interstingly, the children found that the items hit the ground at the same time and were able to give and share amazing explanations of why this happens.
In the picture above you can see the children using newtonmetres to measure the force it takes to drag a shoe across a variety of different surfaces. They then went on to record and explain the results they got to the class. We compared the results with our classes to ensure we did not have any anomalies.

Green class also had a turn at taking part in the Northern Ballet session.

Year 5 moved around the classroom to identify different kinds of angles.

Year 5 had fun during their Northern Ballet session! Some children were even 'spotted' for a free second session!

Year 5 used geoboards in order to create polygons which has to satisy set criteria, based on types of angles.

During the week, some of our children said they wanted to have a camping day in school. When asked what kind of things they would like to do, they said, to have the tent out, to sing camp songs, to drink hot chocolate and to have a camp fire. On Friday, we had our camping day in EYFS. The children loved playing in the tent and were fantastic at taking turns in there. They enjoyed hot chocolate, camp songs and story time all together. We were not able to have a camp fire this week, but are hoping to be able to have one in our forest schools area soon. The children loved it, with one child saying "This was the best day ever!"

This week we have been very busy making our own vegetable soup. The children selected the vegetables they would like to add, they helped to peel and cut the vegetables and finally (the best part) they got tp taste their soup! The children used excellent sequencing langugae to describe how they made the soup. We also had some very interesting descriptions of the taste such as 'delicious', 'tasty', 'smooth', 'warm' and 'scrumptious'.

This week, we wanted to show you all of the fantastic Maths work we have been doing. We have been counting up to and back from 20, ordering numbers to 20, practicing number formation by writing in snow (icing sugar) and making numbers out of unifix cubes. Also, we have been practicing using weighing scales and building towers using the 3D shapes. We have learnt the names of some 3D shapes, including cube, cone, sphere and cylinder. We can identify these shapes when looking around the classroom and outside.

Creative children in Reception
Date: 16th Jan 2022 @ 2:41pm
This week, the children have been showing their creative sides using all sorts of different resources. Smiley faces from stickle bricks, a floor plan of a house with lego and dominos (the dominos are ramps between rooms), a bridge with cars and vans on (using all sorts of small parts for the cars and vans), as well as lots of winter snowmen and snow flakes!

With a lot of resilience, determination and skill , our fabulous Year 3's created beautiful , wintery landscape pictures that are worthy of being framed!

We have travelled back in time to the Stone Age! We are keen to learn all about how life was different during this period, from the way they lived to how they spent time their time. Take a peek at some of our cave drawings that were created during our launch! Some are very realistic despite the limited resources that the children were given to use.

This week, we started our brand new topics about winter and the Arctic. And what a perfect week to start, the temperature dropped so much that we were able to see what happens to water when it gets cold. The children investigated how ice feels, breaks and melts. They loved how the top of the tough spot was frozen, but they could see the water moving underneath. Then they used different tools to break the ice. Some held it in their hands to feel how cold it was, some used it to slide down the drain pipes and others used it to make ice towers. We even found that the ground was frozen too. We hope we get some more cold days and hopefully some snow that lays on the ground!

We have been enjoying lots of Christmas activities this week, especially the Christmas party and the visit from Santa and his reindeer. We have been making Christmas cards, present tags, lists for Santa and Christmas decorations. We also learnt all about the Christmas story from the Bible. We asked some of our friends what they enjoyed the most, here are a few of their responses.
"I loved meeting Santa's reindeer. They were so cute!"
"I liked making lists for Santa, I want a toucan for Christmas."
"The Christmas party was fun, especially musical statues!"

This half term, Year 6 have been working incredibly hard on their writing. We have written for a range of purposes -including explanations, poetry and narratives. We have worked hard on our vocabulary, punctuation and the structure of our senences. Next half term we will continue to build on these skills. Take a look at some of the writing we have produced.
