The children have enjoyed another week based on Send for a Superhero.
The children have described their own superhero. They have planned and written their own stories, selecting their own baddie and superhero who saves the day.
In maths the children have been naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes. They have used the 2D shapes to create their own alien from space!
Some of us created our own space picture on the playground using chalks - we had aliens, rockets, a satellite and a space map to follow.
During the next couple of weeks the children will be designing and then making their own moon buggies. Please save and send in any small boxes (individual cereal boxes are an ideal size) and plastic bottle tops for this project. Thank you
Welcome back and a happy new year to you all !!
The children in Owl Class have had a fabulous week this week. They have looked at the text Send for a Superhero by Micheal Rosen. This has inspired alot of work. The children have described the baddies, Filth and Vacuum. They have thought about the characteristics of a superhero as well as the accessories a superhero might need. They have been busy creating aliens out of playdough and making their own superhero costumes.
I wonder what next week will bring!
Today we have enjoyed making our party hats for the Christmas Party this afternoon. We have joined in with the Gift Making and we all wore our Christmas jumpers for Children in Need.
Please see Party Pics on Latest News Page
Next Week we are looking forward to Christmas Dinner, Sleeps til Santa and Carols around the tree - look out for the pics on the latest news page
Every Thursday morning Owls class opens its doors and welcomes parents to share stories with the children.
Please do come and share a story or two with your child on a Thursday morning.
The story we have been looking at this week in class is How to be a Dog. The children have enjoyed finding out the essential ingredients needed to be a dog - written from a dog's point of view.
Following on from this we now have a Vets in the outside area and the children have certainly enjoyed looking after the different animals that needed their attention.
The children in Owls have been finding out about Diwali. They have learnt how it is celebrated and had a go at making coconut sweets.
They used what they had been learning about in maths by using shapes to design Rangoli patterns. They were very proud of their chalk patterns they had created on the playground - that is until the rain came down!!
The children finished their unit of work based on Pig the Pug by changing the characters and writing their own stories.
Have an enjoyable half term
