Rowan have had a busy week of wonderful learning this week. We have mastered the skill of sewing before we design and make a soft toy and we are also learning lots of facts about Florence Nightingale. Ask us about when she was born or how she changed the conditions in hospitals. We are full of facts and dates. Also look at wonderful our poppies are. We made them for Remembrance Day and they were added to the garden at St Luke's Bombed Out Church Liverpool City Centre.
We look at several different objects made of different materials and explored to see if and how we could change them in different ways. We found we could change them all but the wax candle could only be snapped and not bent or stretched or squeezed.
This week has been another fun filled week of learning the children have been doing their best listening. We started to talk about sticks! What are they? Where do they come from? Where can we find them? What can we do with them? The children had lots of amazing answers one of them being to find them by the trees. We decided to go out onto our big field and find some sticks by our trees. After talking lots about sticks we read the story ‘Stick Man’ written by Julia Donaldson l
This week is Road Safety Week. We looked at the green cross code and discussed safe places to cross. We read Superbob and created road safety posters. In number work we've been using the number lines to count back and take away. We've learned the language of subtraction and we know fact families. You can use three numbers and can create addition and subtraction number sentences - we are amazing mathematicians. In Music we warmed up our facials muscles with exercises. Then we
This week we have been learning about Remembrance Day. We learned about the significance of poppies and about how the brave soldiers fought for the safety of others. We made poppies which will be displayed in the bombed out church for the public to see and also learned about other traditions that happen on Remembrance Sunday. I’m sure you will agree the poppies are beautiful! .
This week in year 1 we have enjoyed learning about The Great Fire of London, experimenting with materials, using the Bee Bots and using glockenspiels. We can tell you where the Great Fire of London started - ask us! We can tell you all about the houses and equipment back then. Being scientists was so exciting - testing out the different materials for Pudsey's umbrella. We can talk about algorithms and when/ how to de-bug the Bee Bots. This week we learnt lots of new informat
This week we have started our phase 1 phonics, we have been listening for sounds we can hear around school and outdoors. we have spoken about sounds we may hear at home too like… the kettle boiling, the door bell ringing. Can you listen for sounds at home at the weekend? Ready for Monday when we will be talking more about the sounds we hear.
We have also used the musical instruments listening carefully to the different sounds they make. We played a game of guess the instru
In Reception we have been exploring how our bodies grow and change. The children have investigated the various stages of our development and have ordered the stages of how we grow. We have also explored the way our bodies move and have followed basic algorithms to make a simple dance routine. The children enjoyed the songs 'shake your sillies' and the 'birdy song'. Finally the children have used the IPads to draw their own bodies and label as well as follow simple instruction
We made Poppies to remember all the brave soldiers that fought for our safety and freedom. These are going to be displayed and seen by the public. We learned about the importance of Poppies. We observed silence at 11 o'clock and remembered all those people who have helped make our world such a wonderful and happy place. We made links to our learning about World War Two.
We have been looking at Primary Sources in history and generating questions about the changes that happened in World War Two and how they led to people building and buying different types of air raid shelters to protect them during 'The Blitz'. We then investigated a timeline of events and ordered them to show the sequence of events during the war from its beginnings to how it ended.
