Minion Island!

As part of the minion topic, we have been talking about the different places the minions come from, and one of these places is minion island!

This included group discussions on how islands are formed, and how they are always surrounded by water. We also talked about what can feature on an island, such as rivers and forests, and the different wildlife in these areas.

We even made our very own island, including our minions we created and painted.

Take a look at minion island!

Minion Mania!

In the next few weeks we will be learning all about minions!

We will be talking about how all minions are different and what makes each one special. They all have different interests and feelings too.

We can also use our minions for counting and making sentences about how they feel.

Take a look at some of the amazing work we have already done!

Autumn!

Welcome to reception class 2017!

We have had a very fun and exciting start to our school year.

This week, as the seasons have begun to change, we are learning all about autumn and how this season looks. We have also been talking about what festivals take place in the autumn months, such as harvest festival.

Take a look at the autumn display the children have created themselves!

Throughout this half term, we have been continuing our Great Britain topic. We have been mini geographers and looked at: cities, rivers, seas and counties within Great Britain! Did you know there are over 40 counties in England? Ask us the countries and capital cities that make up Great Britain!

 

Literacy

In literacy, we have focused on poetry, letter writing, character descriptions and non-chronological reports! As a whole, we enjoyed learning the Great Britain poem the most as we performed the poems and even create our own actions!

VCOP

We have our new VCOP (vocabulary, conjunctions, openers and punctuation) wall up in our classroom. The two writing frames are for children who use all of VCOP within a piece of writing. Our current writing champions are Chloe and Alfie!

 

Maths

In maths this half term we have had focused on fractions. We have found fractions of amounts, equivalent fractions and have ordered fractions! We will be moving onto measurement for the rest of the half term, looking at length, weight and capacity!

 

Chocolate

As our topic has come to an end we will be beginning our new topic – chocolate! Where we will be designing our own chocolate bar as well as looking at where chocolate comes from.

Please remember that maths homework is now set on Mathletics.

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Thurlstone Brass band into our school.

They performed  beautiful Christmas carols which we sang along to, and we even got the chance to join in as part of the band too!

We would like to say a huge thank you for coming into the school, and for a great morning.
