Yesterday the children raised money and enjoyed themselves at the disco dancing and having fun. Today we dressed as superheroes to help to raise more money for Children in Need. Check the newsletter to see how much money we raised as a school.
As part of our seasons work in Science we visited Calthorpe Haven to look at some of the changes that happen at this time of year. We collected lots of leaves that had fallen from the trees and used them with our Art skills to create pictures. Here are some photographs of our investigating and creativity.
Today the children have used their Creative power and DT skills to make animal pictures with moving body parts. Children were taught how to use split pins to join paper together and then tried to use them independently to make an animal picture with a moving head, arms, legs and tail. We look forward to sharing these with you at our jungle exhibition next Thursday.
Today we have used our Art skills and our Creative power to help us to make model clay animals. The children have used tools and their hands to shape and join pieces of clay to make a model of their favourite animal. We are looking forward to sharing these with you at our jungle exhibition next week.
In Maths we have been learning our number bonds for 5. Our number bonds are two numbers that add together to make a total. Use this rhyme to help your child to know their number bonds for the total of 5.
0 + 5 do a hand jive.
1 + 4 open the door.
2 + 3 drink some tea.
3 + 2 tie your shoe.
4 + 1 high five someone.
5 + 0 superhero!
Children need to know all of their number bonds for 5 confidently to help them with their addition and problem solving.
