Weekly News Round Up

Nest

The nest children have had great fun today role playing the story of farmer duck. We listened to the story and then acted it out, taking it in turns to be the farmer and then being the cows, sheep and hens chasing the farmer away.

 

Nest had such a lovely time this afternoon when Doves came to visit us and read us some stories. Thank you Doves come and see us again soon!

Nursery

Children are having an amazing time in the creative area choosing and mixing their own colours for their paintings.

Reception

The children in Reception have had an exciting start to their new topic, Under the Sea. They have read some fantastic stories including Commotion in the Ocean and Tiddler and learnt some new songs. Some of them were very proud to show what they’ve been up to in their independent learning! They have been writing in sand, sending messages in a bottle, playing a buried treasure game and working hard on their counting with lots of different creatures from under the sea.

The children in Reception have been learning about the importance of washing their hands including why and when we need to do it. They very enthusiastically played in our hand washing tray and worked hard to wash the ‘germs’ off the hands. Some of them even made up their own song about washing their hands!

Children in Reception loved sharing their books with parents during our sharing time for Reading Week. It was lovely to see so many parents attending.

Goldfinch 2 loved dressing up for World Book Day, we talked about our favourite books and even had a little catwalk of our costumes!

Year 2

Magpies have enjoyed reading with parents as part of World Book Day.

Year 3

Children have been working hard during their English lessons analysing a text.

 

 

 

For Reading Week parents joined their children in Lapwings looking at different genres of books in their Book Café.

Lapwings have been discovering genres of books to create their own Bookflix display. Here are some photos of our costumes.

 

Year 6

Year 6 enjoyed their Griffin Time activity, working in groups to begin to create their model volcanos.

Reading Week

Day 1 of our Reading Week saw children getting creative- designing their own creatures, writing their own children’s stories and using their artistic skills. Take a look at some of the work and activities going on in Nursery, Year 1,3 and 6.

Day 2 of Reading Week saw Perry Wood children getting imaginative! We have seen children exploring forest school linked to their text “Where the wild things are”; Year 6 getting crafty creating collages of Mr Twit using a description and Year 5 drawing what they picture in their mind.

We were exploring during Day 3 of Reading Week. Some children used their feet to explore different textures and think about how the different materials felt to generate some fantastic vocabulary; others explored different genres of text.

World Book Day 

Wow! What an amazing range of characters we have seen in school today! Thank you for all the support and effort put into these costumes. It was incredibly hard to choose winners. Here are our runners up and winners!
