Dog Smart

Today Emily from the Dog’s Trust visited us. We learnt how to be safe around dogs and lots about dogs senses. Here are some facts we now know :

Dogs have the same 5senses but it’s sense of smell is 1000 times better.

Chocolate, gapes and raisins are poisonous to dogs.

Dogs can smell under water.

Trees and leaves

After the fun and excitement of our assembly we have begun a new topic this week about plants.

We have continued our fairy tale theme by looking at Jack and the Beanstalk and today we have learnt about deciduous and evergreen trees. We made leaf idials to help us identify different trees.

 

Bog Baby fantastic

We had a lot of fun this morning presenting our Bog Baby assembly to our families and the school.  All the hard work rehearsing paid off when we remembered to speak clearly and loudly to tell everyone about our brilliant learning.  Mrs Barratt, Mrs Blacker and Mrs Partis are very proud of us.

Thanks to our parents for helping us with our words and coming to watch us, it was great to have your support and we are very proud of ourselves.

The ENORMOUS turnip

This term has started with a little drama ! We are working hard to practise for our class assembly and we have been listening to and retelling traditional tales. Today we worked on the Enormous turnip. We had a brilliant time re-enacting the story.

We PULLED and PULLED and PULLED

then out it popped !!

 

Dodgeball

 

We had a brilliant inter house championship yesterday playing Dodgeball across Key Stage 1.  All the children worked hard to play as a team but Jupiter emerged as the winners at the end of the tournament.

Mothers’ Day

This afternoon we had our Mothers’ Day Service followed by tea and cakes for our families. We have enjoyed making flowers for our mothers this week and practising our handwriting to write our messages.

We have started to think about instruction writing and in maths we have been looking at number bonds to 10 and 20.     

Sponsored dance

We started the morning with a collective worship learning about St Patrick.  Then we have had lots of fun with our sponsored dance for the NSPCC.  Just look at our moves!   Don’t forget to bring sponsor money in on Monday.
