Maths Parent Workshop 
It was lovely to see so many parents to find about Maths in our classroom. The children really enjoyed it.😊

Week 5

This week we have been thinking about Easter. We have learnt about Holy Week and what happened to Jesus at Easter.

Palm Sunday

We learnt about Jesus arriving in Jerusalem and the people celebrating as they believed he came to save them.

Good Friday 

We learnt that this is the day that Jesus died on the cross and this is why we have hot cross buns. We enjoyed eating the hot cross buns.

Easter Saturday and Sunday 

We learnt about why people make Easter gardens and that Jesus came back to life on Easter Sunday. We had an exciting Easter egg hunt and talked about how Easter eggs symbolise new life and remind us that Jesus came back to life.

We also made a special Easter cross decorated with flowers we drew. Some of us wanted to pray by the cross.

Week 1
We started by going to the field and looking at the trees. We were trying to find out which trees were Evergreens and which were Deciduous. Then we looked at the leaves on the ground to see if we could find out the names of the trees on our field. We found out we had a lot of oak trees!

In discovery time we have mixing smelling herbs to make potions, planting beans and serving people in our new cafe. 

 

We are loving the new things in the mud kitchen. Thank you so much to Rudy’s parents for giving us a microwave to play with in the mud kitchen. If anyone else has an old Fridge, oven, metal pots and pans or spoons they could give us it would be very much appreciated.

In phonics we have focused on the two ways of making the sound ‘er’. We played a game trying to guess Mrs Burdens word from her clues. We were really good at working in a team, especially the boys!

In Maths we have been thinking about the words less, fewer, take away and subtract. We went on the field and had to collect less natural objects than the number Mrs Burden showed us. We were very good at explaining how we knew the amount we collected was less. 

Dont forget to try out the Maths challenge on Tapestry this week.
