In Birch we have been learning drawing skills and experimenting with different techniques when drawing lighthouses. We were really happy with the results.
In Maple class we have been enjoying learning lots of different songs and rhythms,
We have been trying out all of the different instruments in school and playing to the beat of the music as well as singing.
Our Maple children love when we get the instruments out and practicing playing these instruments, Its super FUN!
A huge thanks to One Stop stores and their regional manager. One Stop have funded the school new play equipment and also twenty new stunt scooters! A lot of time was spent hunting around multiple stores Halfords stores to find exactly what the school wanted. We are really grateful, a huge Croft thank you!
We have been really bust this week with lots of fabulous activities.
We are working really hard on our mark making, letter recognition, formation and writing.
We have been practicing our counting and making sure that we recognise numbers and their value. We are very good at counting and love to play lots of games to practise our skills!
We enjoyed looking at cold colours and experimented mixing coloured paint to make as many different shades as we could to finish our cold colour pictures. Purple was the most popular colour!
This week in Hazel class pupils have been writing instruction on how to make an animal themed breakfast.
Once our instructions were written it was Miss Robson’s job to follow them.
This made us all laugh as we all forgot to plug the toaster in or use a knife to spread the butter and chocolate spread!
We learnt the importance of making sure our instructions are clear and that we don’t miss steps out.
We all enjoyed making the animal toast and eating them for breakfast.
We have now written instructions on how to make a pizza, watch this space for the results.
This week Hazel class have worked hard learning about different habitats.
First they were given four images of different habitats and asked to name them before moving on to sorting animals into the habitats.
Pupils also worked on their cutting skills.
This was a good activity to understand what pupils already know and how their knowledge can then be built upon.
You never know when we go for a walk in the woods we might just come across a camel hiding there instead of the Gruffalo!
We then went on to focus on one habitat and pupils chose the ocean.
Pupils watched a documentary on the ocean and plants and animals that live their.
Finally Hazel class looked at different water animals before sharing a story.
Well done Hazel class for working super hard!
