Friday Fanfare 22

Hello Red Class,


Another lovely week with lots of super learning. Today was our last Forest School session of the term. We found out how to build a '5 minute fire'. We searched for sticks and built our own (pretend) fires. Later, we shared a story about a fox who tried to create fire as Mrs Webb lit a real campfire. As well as promoting awe and wonder, fire safety and risk assessment is at the heart of our learning at Forest School.


In Literacy, we shared and performed an Easter poem, "Five Little Easter Eggs" and used a poem map and actions to recall the words. In our Maths sessions, we named, described, created and solved problems with 3D shapes.


To support our number bond work, we played a new game. Working with our learning partner, we secretly made a number bond to 5 with objects i.e. 2 cubes and 3 cubes. Then we revealed our number bond to our partner. If we made 5 in different ways, we gained a point. You could try playing this game at home with objects or fingers.


As we get ready for lunch, we play another number bond game. I show you 4 fingers and you show me 1. I show you 5 fingers and you show me 0. We make a great team! Remember you can make number bonds to any number, so you could try 3 or 6.


We started our Easter topic by sharing our experiences of Easter. We used Easter themed objects to support our talk work. We listened to the Easter story, sequenced key events and considered how Jesus was thoughtful. Our Write Dance sessions were filled with Easter egg dancing and drawing. Your Easter egg pictures and patterns were fantastic!


This weekend, please check your jumpers at home and make sure they're all named and belong to you :)


Have a super weekend super stars,

Mrs Webb, Mrs Allen, Mrs Winterbourn, Mrs Roberts and Mrs Franklin :)
