Week beginning 20th & 25th April

Topic - Animals

Core text - Walking through the jungle 

Topic The children have settled back into their routines well. They have loved learning all about jungle animals and about different habitats. Thank you to all the parents that came to stay and play, your presence was greatly appreciated. You helped the children make some lovely Mendhi patterns and some creative homes for jungle animals with the play dough and leaves. Finally, you helped the children write some lovely Eid party invitations. The children have also been learning about different types of maps and enjoyed drawing out the route from south site to north site in a linear map form. 

Maths The children have been learning how to double, they made some lovely lady bird spots and completed some domino pictures to represent the double. The children have also been learning about time. They have looked at how time is broken up and can show the differences between day and night. They have also had a lot of fun learning about specific amounts of time. They had to smile for a minute, hop on the spot for 30 seconds and dance around for 2 minutes! These were some ways in which they are beginning to understand time. They also looked at, 'today, yesterday and tomorrow'. 

Cooking The children really enjoyed making jungle crumble! They helped add the exotic fruit to the crumble and make the topping. They each got to take home a warm piece of crumble, I hope you enjoyed it.

Special days The children have been learning about Ramadan and got to listen to a talk by Miss Mozir about what happens during Ramadan. The children learnt so much and had a lovely time visiting north site. We also walked over to north site and performed our dance, 'walking through the jungle' for International Dance Day. Some children also got henna done on their hands! 

        

  

    

  

       

   

 

  

  

    

 

Week beginning 3rd & 9th May

Topic - Animals

Core text - Dear Zoo

*OUR CLASS ASSEMBLY IS ON FRIDAY 10TH JUNE AT 9:10AM

LINES HAVE BEEN SENT HOME.

Thank you for your continued support.

Topic The children have been learning about zoos and the animals that can be found there. Where are their natural habitats? How have their surroundings been adapted to make them as comfortable as possible for their new life in the zoo? The children also worked with clay to make their favourite zoo animal and painted them. 

Maths In maths we have been learning how to estimate and looking at what a reasonable estimation might be, this was a lot of fun! We have also been learning how to share, what it looks like if we share fairly and unfairly. The children especially enjoyed working on the interactive white board where they got to practise sharing out different items of food for the different animals.  

Well done to Ayesha and Iman for all your hard work this week.

Special days We had the opportunity to visit a local Mosque with all the children from Reception, north and south site. The Mosque was very beautiful, and we learnt how to respect the place of worship. The children especially enjoyed getting to take home a chocolate at the end! Thank you to all who came to stay and play! 

Cooking The children enjoyed making giraffes this week!
