We have really enjoyed reading and exploring the story of The Everywhere Bear. Each week, our very own Everywhere Bear will go home with a different child who will write and draw their experience in the class book. We have loved reading about where he has been so far.
Our Science topic this half term is My Body.
We have been talking about all the wonderful things that our bodies can do and naming the different parts.
We made our own life-sized outlines to label as a group with all the words that we knew.
I can't wait to see what we'll find out next!
This afternoon, we all went out to compete in this year's key stage one sports afternoon. We ran, hurdled, balanced beanbags, ran with the egg and spoon, jumped in our sacks and finally took part in the relay race. Great fun was had by all. The winning team was...
Congratulations to them, but a very big well done to everyone who took part-you were all fantastic.
We need to say a huge thank you to Mr Gorner for organising the event; to Mrs White for collecting all the scores; to Mrs Roberts for taking such brilliant photographs; Miss Milner for getting everyone sorted for the right race and to Miss O'Neill, Mrs Severn, Mrs Symons and Mrs Illingsworth for making everything run so smoothly, (oh and not forgetting Mrs Sanderson for providing everyone with a much needed ice-pop at half time).
For DT, we have designed our own fruit breakfast pot. We learned how to use a bridge hold to safely cut our fruit. We all agreed that our creations were truly scrumptious.
In PHSE we have been learning about different ways to keep healthy. We talked about the importance of a balanced diet and learned about different food groups. We also talked about how it is important to keep ourselves clean and wash away any germs. Here are some of the posters that we created to remind others to wash their hands thoroughly.
In our science lessons we have been learning all about plants. We have been identifying plants in our local environment as well as observing how plants grow by planting our very own bean seeds. We watched them grow over the last few weeks until they were finally big enough to be planted outside.
