How parents can support their child with maths
Today we had a huge surprise .... a spaceship crashed onto our field! Thankfully it just missed the trim trail. We had to search for clues and evidence amongst all the debris left behind. We even saw some footprints and were very careful not to crack the large egg. After lunch, we went to explore and gather evidence and the egg was GONE! We found a letter, left by the aliens, thanking us for looking after the egg whilst they fixed their spaceship to go home. What an exciting day! Now it is up to us to investigate the materials we found and try to build our own rocket.
It has been a delight to watch the children in Year 1 engage with their Forest School sessions this term. The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals through positive outdoor experiences ... and our children were certainly inspired and excited to promise to be respectful Forest Rangers. They were thrilled with their log circle from the fairies and have enjoyed learning new games involving listening & speaking skills, turn taking and teamwork. Even over this short period, it has been fascinating to watch the children's confidence and imagination grow. I can't wait to see what next term brings.
Today a paleontologist, called Graham, visited our school. He brought lots of fossils that he had found and told us about them and how they were formed. We got to hold a real dinosaur egg and saw an x-ray of the dinosaur bones inside. We looked at lots of different dinosaur models and discussed their similarities and differences. Graham taught us interesting facts about dinosaurs. We had lots of fun!
In Religious Education we have been learning the story of Noah's Ark. We looked at different materials and decided which ones to use for different animals. We then worked together to make a collage for our classroom display. We are very proud of our pictures.
