Welcome to Red Class News page. Here you can see what exciting things we've been learning throughout the school year.
Home Learning in March
Fantastic work Red Class, looks like you’ve all been very busy in the first week of home schooling. There has been some great work being sent through to Mrs Nathan and amazing photographs that you can see below.
It’s great to know that they are all still practicing their letters, sounds and numbers.
Red Class have been doing various work sheets set by Mrs Nathan each day along with some of their own fun activities. These include helping mum and dad at home by cooking, baking, making own packed lunches, having fun doing science experiments, painting, reading and PE with Joe Wicks. Keep up the good work.
This month we have been making patterns. In computing we have been learning about programming and in PE we have been using the apparatus. We can climb and jump confidently.
Yeovil Town Football Club came to visit us at school as part of their Adopt a school programme and we had a visit from Rocktopus where we learnt some new songs and wrote a song for our school.
Living Eggs came in on the 2nd March and left us with 10 eggs in an incubator. We were pleased to see that 8 out of the 10 eggs hatched and after a few days we were all able to hold the little chicks.
This month we have been using tens frames to talk about addition number sentences in mathematics. We have had lots of fun using shaving foam to do our writing and water colours to paint pictures.
We have been making animals out of shapes and dressing up in the outdoor classroom and learning how to take photos using the iPads which was great fun. In music we have been using the xylophones making lots of tunes.
For Internet Safety Day, we now all know what to do when using the internet.
“Before you click, click, click...
You need to think, think, think and tell/ask someone”
In mathematics we have been exploring numbers using tens frames and counters. We have been saying “I can see...”
This month we have been working practically to see how we can make different numbers. We have been doing colouring and using the i-pads for Children in Need and have been making poppies in computing for Remembrance Day.
This month we had our school trip to Gore Farm/Trent Woodlands. We had a great morning and made woodland crowns. In PE we have been jumping off a box and in class we have been painting Autumn trees and drawing Numicon using the i-Pads.
We have been making animals using our feet and learning about length. We all got to have a go on the Active wall, which was a lot of fun.
In our first week of school we all made new friends and painted life size portraits of ourselves. These are now on display in the Learning street outside our classroom.
We have been learning how to express ourselves and how to play alongside our peers along with exploring the outside area. We have been on listening walks and was read a story by Mrs Nathan in our outside classroom.
In class we have been taught how to hold a pencil and have started playing football on Friday's with Steve from Nipper Kicks. We also had a visit from a very interesting car.
We've had a lovely last week at school before the summer holidays. We started off the week with Sports Day where we took part in running, cricket, football. We had a visit from the children of Bucklers Mead music department who performed for us and made cars as part of our D&T project. We finished off the week by having a picnic with our parents in the school hall as the weather was against us.
This week we have been doing some creative writing from when Pete the poet visited us. We have also been talking about measurement. We measured the playground in steps and then we used a slingshot to fire a teddy and measure the distance.
This week we have been talking about bees. We talked about the importance of bees and even tried some honey. We also had a visit from Pete the Poet who came and spent the day with us and inspired us to be creative writers.
We welcomed dads and granddad's into school for an assembly and a breakfast.
This term we are learning about mini beasts and we have shown that we are designers by using our classroom resources to create mini beasts of our choice. We have also been learning about and making patterns.
Mrs Nathan read us a bedtime story for pyjamrama day. We all snuggled down to listen to the story.
We’ve had a fantastic first day back after the holiday. We’ve had an Easter egg hunt and an Easter bonnet parade.
We have had lots of fun this week making the most of the glorious sunshine and using the outdoor classroom. We have also been working very hard preparing for our Mothers Day Assembly. We invited all our mummys into school on Friday afternoon, performed songs and showed them a pre-recorded video of why we each love our mummy. Each mummy left with a painted portrait and a special gift.
We have been making people patterns and noise patterns in mathematics this week. On Friday we welcomed a company called Organic Rhythm who came in and provided an African drumming session with us. We all had really good fun.
This week we had a visit from The Dogs Trust and spoke about dog safety. We made shapes with our bodies and finished off the week with some yoga.
We have had a very eventful week this week. We welcomed Pete the Poet who came to work with us, and then made pancakes on Pancake Day, we were able to choose different toppings and then got to eat them. Yummy!
World book day came a day early for us this week, we were able to come dressed up by following the theme of Rhyme that we have been working on all week. We had an assembly and were able to see all the other childrens outfits.
We’ve also been talking about estimation in mathematics and have been doing lots of sensible guessing.
This week we enjoyed the sunshine and had lots of learning in our outdoor classroom. We also got to hold the chicks and then used purple mash to draw them.
This week we have been working with Orange class to make our Valentines cakes.
