Spread your wings, Butterflies

The boys have loved observing the caterpillars turn to butterflies. We even got to witness a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis! On Thursday we let them out into the big wide world.

 

During Maths this week we recapped time, we played what’s the time Mr Wolf?

 

Have a fantastic half term!

Class Breakfast

The class breakfast was a wonderful start to the week, the boys thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing breakfast, chatting away to each other.

   

Keeping with our theme of caterpillars, we read The very hungry caterpillar and made our own caterpillar diaries.

 We revisited money this week, the boys enjoyed money bingo and playing shops. We learnt about giving change.

 

We have been making bees and ladybirds.

 

The boys enjoyed racing on the track at Green Meadow.

   

After half term there will be a whole school fundraising coin mosaic where each class creates their own mosaic using coins. The Year 8 boys are helping Reception to design and make theirs. We have a coin collection jar in our classroom so the boys can start collecting pennies!

Between and Difference

In Maths we have been learning the terms ‘in between’ and ‘difference’. The boys enjoyed making human number lines and finding numbers that were in between numbers. They also used number lines, counting bears and drawing circles to find the difference between two numbers.

To practise this at home, please lay out your number cards or use your laminated 100 square to find numbers that are in between other numbers e.g. write one number between 12 and 17. Similarly, use these laminated resources to find the difference between 2 numbers. The boys have learnt to count on from their starting number and to remember to count up to and including the last number. e.g. To find the difference between 5 and 10, count 6,7,8,9 and 10. Or find/draw 10 objects and take away 5, how many are left?

Caterpillars

Our caterpillars have been growing fast! We made our own butterfly life cycles.

 

This week we recapped 1 more and 1 less and explored the meaning of the words: ‘between’ and ‘difference’. The boys used the number line and 100 square to select 2 numbers and then find the numbers between and also find the difference.

 

The boys enjoyed painting tulips and sunflowers with a range of tools, including forks!

 

We are looking forward to our class breakfast on Monday. Please can the boys bring in their own breakfast.

Caterpillars and Beanstalks

We started learning our number bonds to 10 this week and found there are 11 different ways to make 10! We also started to look at number bonds to 20.

 

We listened to the story ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’ and recapped the events of the story. We have some new arrivals, little caterpillars. We also planted our beans this week and started our bean diaries.

Summer term begins

Welcome back!

The boys have been enjoying sharing their holiday news and all their fantastic homework! There will be no homework this week, we will start again next week.

We have started our new topic ‘growing’ and have been exploring the garden centre in the role play area. We will be learning about plants and trees, animals and their young and growing up. The boys are going to have a think over the weekend whether they have any questions about our topic that they would like us to explore.

Happy Easter!

During Maths this week we went on an Easter egg number hunt, we used the numbers to make addition and subtraction number sentences.

 

We went on a Spring hunt, taking photos of signs of Spring using the iPads.

 

On the scooters and bikes:

The boys have worked incredibly hard this term and have achieved so much, they should be very proud of themselves. Have a lovely Easter break!
