Blue Class 2020-2021
Sports Day 2021
What a great day we had. Well done Blue Class you were amazing.
The children have written some imaginative pirate letters this week. They have continued to solve pirate problems in maths, doing an amazing job. The children been exploring symmetry further and have made some great symmetrical patterns. They have even had a go at making symmetrical pirate ships out of the building blocks. Great work everyone!
This week Blue Class continued to enjoy being pirates. They have had lots of fun with pirate role play and writing about themselves as pirates. They have made pirate ships and arranged the 'ship's equipment in a symmetrical pattern. The children have also been brilliant at sharing out the pirate treasure.
Blue Class are enjoying our pirate topic and continuing to use their imagination. They have some amazing ideas. They have particularly enjoyed making pirate ships out of the big blocks and out of corks. A great time was had by everyone when we raced the pirate ships in the water tray.
This week Blue Class are developing their imagination. They are enjoying our new book, Billy's Bucket, and imagining what they can 'see' in the bucket. This imagination has also been in evidence during choosing time. Some of the children decided to build their own 'tablets' and 'play' games on them together. Now they are busy designing their own games and have some amazing ideas. We left our wellies behind this week and went on a barefoot walk, exploring different textures around the school. Blue Class absolutely loved this activity.
Planning Summer 2 Week 1, week beginning 7th June, 2021.
Week 6 - We have had a great week. We learnt all about healthy food and discussed how we can occasionally have 'treat food' as part of a healthy balanced diet. We made teddy bear cookies which we enjoyed at our teddy bear picnic along with fruit kebabs and other healthy options. The children had great fun with teddy bear races. We read lots of different books with teddy bear characters and sang a range of different teddy bear songs together. We also took part in Trailblazer activities outside.
Wishing you all a lovely half term, see you back at school on Monday 7th June.
Planning Summer 1 Week 6, week beginning 24th May, 2021
Another fabulous week in Blue Class. Thank you to all the parents who sent in photographs of special clothes for our RE topic. The children enjoyed sharing these and discussing why the clothes were so special. We also explored special clothes for different jobs and clothes for Christian and Hindu celebrations. The children produced some lovely writing about their outfits and had fun designing special outfits. We had a lovely calm wellie walk this week, exploring our senses - what we could see, hear, smell and feel.
Planning Summer 1 Week 5, week beginning 17th May, 2021.
What fabulous ideas from Blue Class this week. Our story was the Three Billy Goats Gruff and the children made some great bridges and very scary trolls. They also produced some fantastic writing. The bug hunt was very exciting and the children enjoyed finding all sorts of different mini-beasts. They were careful to ensure that their habitats were kept safe as well. Well done Blue Class.
Planning Summer 1 Week 4, week beginning 10th May, 2021
Blue Class have had a very creative week, making bear dens with their friends. There has been some amazing team-work. The children also enjoyed changing the story to "We're Going on a Bug Hunt." They then made some fantastic bug puppets, using all their own ideas. Next week we will be going on a real bug hunt. This week the children also enjoyed PE with Coach Simon.
Planning Summer 1 Week 3, week beginning 3rd May, 2021
Blue Class have been amazing this week. They have had a go at all the lovely well-being activities and have been continuing to get fit and healthy. So many children have challenged themselves in different ways, the monkey bar challenge has been a real favourite! We are really enjoying the Bear Hunt topic and the children have been doing some beautiful art work and writing based on the story. We have been doing our own bear hunts around the school grounds and even did some Bear Hunt cosmic yoga today.
Have a great Bank Holiday weekend!
