We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, learning about African animals.
As you can see, we were able to touch real- life rhino poo. We learned that the rhino is very clever and can work out many things about another rhino by smelling the poo! Yuck.
Did you know?
Zebras are brown and white and often stay together in the wild. This is to stay safe from lions, which have bad eyesight and therefore often stay away from zebras in groups.
In maths we are currently looking at adding 3 numbers together using resources. Multi link, timelines and the hundred square are really helpful to ensure we have the correct answer!
The children have worked very hard with maths this half term and I am incredibly impressed with their ability and resillience and resourcefulness in class.
Very well done to them all :)
Welcome back to the Autumn term!
I am very excited to be teaching you all as my very first class since graduating from University.
We have lots of exciting things planned this term which links to our topic of 'Out of Africa', therefore, keep visiting our class page for more of our African learning journey.
This term, our topic is 'The Wonders of the World'. This will form the focus for our Literacy work, as well as Science, Geography, History and Art. We will explore some the wonders of the world as well as thinking about travel and transport.
The children will continue to be taught by Miss Nixey on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday with Mrs Hubbard teaching on Thursdays. This term the children will have PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that all PE kits are in school on Monday with all items clearly labelled.
The children are enjoying the weekly Big Write ‘talk topics’ and are becoming very confident sharing their opinions in front of their classmates. Please remember to talk about the topics at home as this gives the children the best opportunity to develop some ideas in advance of their writing. If you have an interesting or useful link to one of our talk topics or general topic, and would like to come in and talk to the children, please do talk to Miss Nixey, Mrs Coates or Mrs Deakin at the end of the day. We look forward to sharing more exciting news with you about the children’s learning throughout the school year.
