Our winning mini beast this week was spiders.
In math this week we have been adding and taking away 1,2 and 10 using a 100 square to support. We have also been partitioning two digit numbers into tens and units. Finally we have been creating repeating spider patterns.
This week in literacy we have been using our talk 4 write process to create an innovated version of the song 'A spider in the bath'. Some people changed the animals, some changed the bath, whilst others changed the spider.
Our topic work has involved creating natural pieces of art. Using a range of natural materials the children have been making pictures of spiders and other mini beasts.
This week has been extremely busy and started on Monday with our well being day. The children took part in a carousel of activities throughout the school. They got to make fruit kebabs, play African drums, do yoga, sports activities, drawing, learn a song and more. A very enjoyable day for all involved.
On Wednesday, the weather was kind to us and we were able to hold our annual sports day. A huge well done to all the children for taking part and behaving so well. Thank you to so many parents for coming along to support and encourage them.
On Thursday we were very lucky to receive a visit from Jack Rutter, the captain of the England cerebral palsy football team that took part in the Paralympics. The whole school took part in exercises to help with strength and balance, led by Jack. He then delivered an inspirational speech about his life and career.
On Friday the children had the opportunity to meet their Year 2 teachers. As part of the transitioning process, the children went to their new classrooms and got to spend time getting to know Mrs Bailey/ Mrs Bates.
The week ended on Saturday with a fantastic school fair, organised by FoPPS. It was wonderful to see so many children and their families enjoying themselves and supporting the school. A huge thank you to FoPPS and everyone who volunteered/ helped out for making the day so enjoyable.
