Latest updates from our School
This week Class R read the book ‘Jolly Snow’ by Jane Hissey. In the story Jolly Tall the giraffe is longing to see real snow. All of his friends try to help Jolly Tall by recreating types of pretend snow! They make paper snow, bubble snow, feather snow and finally biscuit snow, just before the real snow comes. This inspired us to make some snowflake biscuits of our own.
During our baking we have learnt about recipes and some of the words we use, like method and ingredients. Before we started our baking we had to put the method into the correct order as it was all jumbled up! We were amazed to watch the changes as the ingredients turned into a dough! I think the best part of our baking was the final part- eating it!!! Well done Class R for your super listening which is very important when following instructions :-)
Wow! What a fantastic few weeks we have had in Class R with our learning. We have read a brand new story all about a mischievous ice cube called Ice Boy who wanted to go on an outside adventure, even though his parents told him ‘never, ever go outside!’... the whole class were left waiting to find out what happened to Ice Boy as we closed the book and made our predictions! It was so exciting and we really wanted to know! We had to hide the book in the cupboard to make sure no one peeked!
Our story about Ice Boy linked very well with what we then discovered in our outdoor area... lots and lots of ice! We have been talking this week about how ice is made and what happens to ice if it gets warm.
As well as our brilliant English and Science learning, we have also been practising our amazing maths. We have been learning about addition. We have been using ice cubes, cups and numicon to practise adding two numbers together and finding the total.
And finally- thank you for all of your milk bottles! We now have our own igloo that we have enjoyed sitting in and reading some books. Hopefully our igloo won’t melt! :-)
Split in to two leagues, they played against several other local schools to achieve a place in the semi finals, and potentially, overall winners. They both played fantastic Dodgeball and again worked together in their teams with a will to succeed.
Both teams did a fantastic job, with one of them winning their league and the semi final, but narrowly missed out in the final to Howitt School.
We are also very proud to announce that one of our children won a special award, given for honesty and good sportsmanship throughout the competition.
Congratulations to all the children for a fantastic evening of sport and to the parents for their enthusiasm and support, and to Mrs McDonald for her help with the teams.
Very proud of Team Smalley , as always!
They took part in a round robin of games against several other schools and worked really hard together, as a team, showing good skills for beginners in the sport.
All the children had a throughly enjoyable time and were so thrilled to have taken part. Thank you to all our parents who came along to support, and to Mrs Reckless and Mrs Shelton.
We learned that 2019 is the Year of the Pig.
We watched this video to help us to understand more:
