15th October 2021

 

Dear Buzzards, Parents and Carers,

Just one week to go before half term and then you can all have a rest!  In maths, we have been practising subtraction.  Next week we will be looking at money and giving change.  In English, we have been planning our stick stories which we will write next week.  We will also be writing letters to a school in New Zealand next week.  In guided reading, we have been enjoying the traditional tale of ‘The Fisherman and His Wife’.  We will continue with traditional tales and fairy tales next week.  In art, we have printed leaf designs with polystyrene tiles and in PSHE we decided which items could be dangerous for our bodies and therefore should be locked away.  In science, we looked around our grounds to see which minibeasts we could find.  We were surprised at how many we spotted! 

Have a lovely weekend!

Best wishes,

Mrs. Brown

Dear Buzzards, Parents and Carers,

This week seems to have flown by!  In maths, we have been looking at different strategies for addition.  We will move onto subtraction next week.  In gymnastics, we have been practising different rolls to link our gymnastic basic shapes and in PE we continued to practise our ball skills.  In English, we have been using time connectives to sequence our work.  Next week, we will attempt to write an adventure for our own sticks.  We finished our very busy week with a walk around our village of Nether Wallop, looking out for the human and physical characteristics.  We also kept our eyes open for evergreen and deciduous trees. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Best wishes,

Dear Buzzards, Parents and Carers,

This week, we have been making our loaves to display in the Harvest Festival assembly and they look amazing!  I can’t believe that we managed to make 27 loaves and I didn’t drop or burn any of them!  I’m sorry that we didn't manage to go on our walk.  The weather forecast was terrible so we will be going next week instead.  In art, we have been creating collage leaves and also drawing some interesting seed heads.  Now that our polystyrene tiles have eventually arrived, we can complete our printing next week.  In maths, we have been looking at the value of the digits in 2-digit numbers and in English, we have started looking at sequencing and time connectives. In computing we have been adjusting the contrast so that our image was lighter or darker than the original.  Next week we will start our own artwork on the computer using the leaf prints from a few weeks ago.

I have attached the homework below.  I have just realised I printed out the version of the homework with the typo rather than the amended version - apologies!  The correct version is attached.

Have a lovely weekend!

Best Wishes,

Dear Buzzards, Parents and Carers,

In maths this week, we have been looking at the language of ‘more’, ‘most’, ‘least’, ‘fewest’ and ‘less’.  In English, we have been practising with prepositions (where something is – on, under, behind etc.)  In art, we continued with our leaf theme and made some clay leaves.  These will eventually be painted and made into a mobile for our woodland area.  We also tried leaf rubbing again, this time with greater success.  Next week, we are aiming to carry out some printing using polystyrene tiles.   In gym, we have been working in pairs to mirror the different gymnastic shapes and in P.E. we have been catching different sized balls. In computing, we have been duplicating and altering an image.  Next we will be rotating and recolouring an image.  Our Harvest loaves have been delayed a week to fit in with the new Harvest assembly date, so this will now take place next Wednesday and Thursday morning. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Kind Regards,

 

Mrs. Brown

Dear Buzzards, Parents and Carers,

 

This week in Geography, we added labels to an aerial photograph of our school.  In maths, we have been counting forwards and backwards and completing number sequences.  Our homework this week is to practise this a little more (see attached).  In English, we have been adding the suffix ‘ing’ to root words and then we tried to apply this when writing sentences.  In art, we looked at some of the work created by the great artist, Seurat, and then practised the pointillism technique ourselves.  In gym, we have been moving smoothly from one gymnastic basic shape to another and in PE, we have been throwing a ball into the air and catching it before it falls to the ground.  Today we have been duplicating and enlarging an image using the laptops.  This skill will be used in our art lessons in a few weeks.  Next week we will be making Harvest loaves to display in the Harvest assembly as well as lots of other things!

Have a lovely weekend!

Best Wishes

Mrs. Brown

Dear Buzzards,

What a busy week we have had!

I have attached a letter and topic map for this term which you may find useful. I will update this page every Friday evening/Saturday morning so that your adults can see what you have been up to all week.  

With best wishes

Mrs. Brown
