Congratulations to the Year R Stars of the Week!

This week we have had fun celebrating Christmas!

We had great fun at our Christmas party – we played games, danced to some party songs and enjoyed a drink and biscuit to give us lots of energy!

We also enjoyed a tasty Christmas dinner!

We would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

These are our Stars of the Week!

This week we have been learning about Christmas, and how Christians celebrate this occasion.  We performed a special nativity performance to our families, and dressed as the wise men, angels, stars, innkeepers, shepherds and other special characters from the nativity story.

 

  

We also had a special elf visitor to come our classes, and this inspired us to write simple sentences about where the elf was hiding.

 

In PSHE we have continued our theme of valuing and celebrating difference.  We learnt that people live in all sorts of different homes, including boats, caravans, houses and flats.  We talked about how our homes are special as they are where we live with our families.  We then created house pictures!

This week we all took part in Woodland Wonder Day. We created bird feeders and decorated our own special tree.

We sat together for a hot drink and sang Christmas songs by our special tree. We sat in the woods and listened to the story Night Tree.

 

This week we have also been helping to decorate our classrooms for Christmas.

This week we have learning more about celebrations and have been busy preparing for our class animals’ birthdays! 

We wrote cards, using our phonics knowledge to carefully spell our class animal’s name.

We made cupcakes with play dough, using five candles to match our class animal’s age.

We thought about different types of food that are used in celebrations and made delicious collages using pictures from magazines!

We made decorations for the classroom ready for a party! After singing happy birthday and helping our class animal to blow out the candles, we even even enjoyed some cake!

This week we had ‘Odd Sock Day’ to help us remember it’s Ok to be different and to be kind to others. We wore our odd socks to school, made kindness cards to give to our friends and designed our own odd socks.

In Maths, we have been solving some 2D shape puzzles . We had to work out which shapes would fit to complete the pictures! We also had a go at using 2D shapes to create our own pictures. We talked about the shapes we used and needed as we worked.

We had great fun exploring and programming the Beebots to move around our classrooms. We learnt how to use the buttons to make the Beebot move forwards, backwards, left or right.

This week in drawing club we have been learning about the story Three Billy Goats Gruff.  We drew detailed pictures of the troll, then added special mark making patterns, like spirals to decorate his body.  Later in the week we drew a way to cross the  river, and we added ‘tricky words’ as the secret password to cross the bridge.

We used our design skills and mathematical thinking about shape to create bridges for the goats to use to cross the river!

This week was very exciting because we had a visit from the GB athlete Kelly Simm!  We took part in sponsored sports activities to help raise money for PE equipment for the school.  Kelly really inspired the children, and now lots of them want to be gymnasts when they grow up, just like Kelly!

In Maths, we have been learning how to compare two sets of objects and say which is ‘more than’ and which is ‘fewer than’.  We helped the cuddly toys to decide who had more and who had fewer objects and then we played a card game.  In our card game, whoever had ‘more’ dots won the game!

In Drawing Club this week we enjoyed reading What’s in The Witch’s Kitchen? and drew our own maps to show how we could escape from the witch. We also read Room on the Broom and had fun mixing potions outside.

 

In RE we have been thinking about why and how we celebrate birthdays. Look at out fantastic pictures showing how we celebrate our birthdays.
