Reception Weeke Beginning 13.7.20 

Hello everyone,

Here are the phonics lessons for Monday 13th July, Tuesday 14th July, Wednesday 15th July, Thursday 16th July and Friday 17th July. This week we are continuing through phase 4. There are no new sounds in phase 4 - it deepens the skills of reading and writing with the sounds that they already know. There are however new tricky words. Your child will be developing their blending and segmenting skills in phase 4 and it can be a big leap for them. As ever, little and often and is the best approach. Their skills of hearing and blending more sounds in sounds will progress with regular practise, just like any other skill.

Here is the link to the maths learning for this week.

Acrostic Poems 

19.3.20

Over the past two weeks we have been reading various poems and discussing which ones we like and why. We have looked at the different types of poem and have learnt one and performed it to the younger children in our class. Today we wrote acrostic poems. Here is one from Ziva in Year 2.

Shooting starts in the sky.

Popping rockets flying high.

Asteroids whirling round the moon.

Cruel aliens coming soon.

Exciting fun isn't it my friend? Bye bye now it's the end!

 


Plants! 


Week beginning 9.3.20

The Bean Investigation

We talked about how to make the investigation fair by putting one bean in each pot and by putting the same amount of soil in each one. We predicted what we thought would happen and then we planted the beans and put two in the cupboard and two in the window sill. We gave one in the cupboard some water and one on the window sill some water. We will look at what happens after a couple of weeks and will record and discuss what happened and why.

The Flower Investigation

We put three white flowers in three pots of water. We then added blue food colouring to one pot and red food colouring to one. We talked about how to make the test fair by putting the same amount of water into each pot and the same amount of food colouring. We also talked about the importance of using the same type and size of flowers. We then predicted what we thought would happen and watched closely over two days to the changes that occurred. We then recorded what happened and why this may have happened. 



 


Design and Technology - Space Buggies 


Week beginning 10.2.20

We looked at some pictures of space buggies and discussed their features. We made a list of the features we would like our space buggies to have. We then explored how to join the wheels, axles and tech card. We designed the space buggies we would like to make and thought about the materials we would use for the various features. We then made our space buggies and used the success criteria to check we had included all the features we wanted to.


Ziva (Year 2) said "Here is the camera and this is the satellite. I've cut it fives times so that I can bend it up like a real satellite. I've made a door and inside there's a steering lever."

Some of the children enjoyed making space buggies so much that they decided to make another one out of junk modelling materials. When they finished making their new models we discussed which one they liked the best and why.


Alyssa (Year 2) said "I like this space buggy the best because it's got a sofa and eight other seats. The wheels on this one don't go round as well as the other one because the axle is stuck onto the bottom but it went through holes on the other one."

 


Computing - Creating pictures. 


Week beginning 3.2.20

We created space themed pictures on a drawing app. We then looked at each others pictures. We discussed the effects we liked and why. We shared ideas and discussed how to create these effects using different tools in the app. We then created pictures of the Planet Zed which we have been learning about in Literacy.

Isabelle (Year 2) said "I used chalk for all of it but I think if I did it gain I wouldn't use chalk for the spikes because it doesn't really look good. I think it would be better to just use a thin paintbrush."
