AUTUMN 1ST HALF TERM

Posted by on in Red Deer Class

This half term has been a jam-packed one for Red Deer! We have been focussing on our topic of Food Glorious Food and through this we have had some fantastic learning opportunities!

In Literacy, we have been studying many traditional tales such as the Grimm Tales and Hansel and Gretel.  We have written our own gory Grimm Tales and also some catchy news reports!

In Maths, we have been focussing on the 4 operations: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We have also been having a go at fractions which can be very tricky!red deer maths

In our PE we have been swimming at Thetford Leisure Centre and we have also been lucky enough to have Neil in to coach us in football!

In topic, we have learnt about: the digestive system; different foods in French and how to say our opinions of these; we have used our ICT skills to design a birthday party for the queen and in music we have been looking at the music of Oliver.

Our RE has been focussed around Christianity with a focus on Teachings and Authority!

All in all- a very busy half term!

Autumn 1st 2017

Posted by on in Squirrel Class

In Squirrel Class this half term we have been working on 3 stories, Rosie’s Walk, The Little Red Hen and The Enormous Turnip.  We have done some brilliant paintings of different animals and vegetables and drawn some lovely story maps.  We have crushed wheat to make flour and made some yummy bread rolls, just like the Little Red Hen does in her story.  We made some, rather interesting, sandwiches and made our very own baked goods out of salt dough. We also plan to make soup and plant radishes before this half term ends!

Summer 1st

Posted by on in Squirrel Class

We have had an amazing, fun packed and enchanted half-term.  We have loved going on all our ‘Enchanted Adventures’, especially climbing to the top of our own beanstalks and using the outside area as the Giant’s castle.  We enjoyed writing about and making the different lands we would like to find at the top of our beanstalks and we even grew our own beanstalks and grass head creatures.  We were so excited about designing and making our own yummy Gingerbread Men and worked really hard to make our Gingerbread Men look just like our designs.  We also made bridges for the Gingerbread Man to escape on.

While flying on Aladdin’s carpet we described the environment around us and learned to use adjectives in our writing and we used repeating patterns to make our own flying carpets.

In R.E. we have been learning about how we can help others and who we can talk to if we need help.  We have read Jesus’ parable ‘The Good Samaritan’ to support our understanding and we had great fun acting out the story.  We have also been considering why Christians light candles and we made our own lolly-stick people to add to our refelection area, with our candles.  The Super Squirrels have made some amazing golden memories this half-term including making their own mud and clay ‘Wild Things’.

Next half-term our new topic ‘Oceans and the Seaside’ promises to deliver some more exciting learning opportunities.  We will be diving into our topic by peering into ‘Billy’s Bucket’ and making our own lift the flap buckets.  This book will be followed by other exciting books including; Harry by the Seaside, Rainbow Fish, The Night Pirates and The Pirates Next Door to mention a few.  We will also explore lots of non-fiction books to help us learn about all the amazing creatures that live under the sea.  We will be learning about sun and sea safety, making our own under the sea creatures and adding rhythms to some under the sea songs.  In maths we will be exploring capacity, estimating and we will continue using our fantastic problem solving skills.   In RE we will be thinking about what makes every single person unique and precious.  We will discuss who is precious to us and why.

There will be lots of opportunities to further develop children’s speaking and listening skills and we will continue to make lots more golden memories.  We can’t wait to get started Super Squirrels!

Summer 1st

Posted by on in Red Deer Class

A whirlwind half term has passed by for Red Deer! Our SATs are over (hurray!) and we are swiftly getting ready for our last half term together! This half term we have thoroughly enjoyed our topic of, ‘Enchanted Forests,’ and have particularly loved delving further into the world of Harry Potter. The children have been studying the book, ‘The Chamber of Secrets,’ and have made some fabulous books of different writing styles. We have written newspaper reports, ghost stories, persuasive letters and many more! Our handwriting is also looking rather fabulous these days! In Maths we have been revising our methods and now are feeling very secure in all 4 operations. In our topic lessons we have been studying Beauxbatons in French, Electricity in Science, Hinduism in RE, making fabulous house-elf socks in DT, Geocaching in Geography and also looking at the solar system! Year 6 had a wonderful trip to the cinema and all the children also enjoyed a wonderful day at Forest for their Immersion day.red deer 1 Medium

red deer 2 MediumNext half term, there is much planned for our wonderful children! We have a trip to the seaside for KS2, our summer production of, ‘Robin and his Sherwood Hoodies,’ an exciting topic of, ‘Adventures on the Ocean,’ and our usual leaver’s assemblies and treats. Lots to look forward to, but also a half term of anticipation for Year 6 as we get them ready for their next step into the big wide world. Let’s make it our best half term yet!
