Well done to all of these children who were in the stripy book this week.

We are very proud of them.



Maths Day

Today we have had Maths Day. The children came to school dressed as different occupations that use maths or a rockstar. We spent a little bit of time talking about how we wold use maths for certain jobs. The children had some really good ideas for this.
Then the children had lots of fun ordering numbers to 100 counting on and back in 1s. We completed number lines with missing numbers counting forwards and backwards using their knowledge of place value.
We also practiced counting sets of objects by grouping in tens.

A Day At The Beach

As part of our English work Year 1 went on a visit to Hindsford’s very own beach. The children had a brilliant time paddling int he sea, building sandcastles and playing beach games. We will be writing a recount of our day later this week.

Guy Fawkes

In Year 1 the children met Guy Fawkes to ask him the questions that they had made up in their History lesson.

Observing Mini-beasts

In Reception, we have been using magnifying glasses to find different mini-beasts. Afterwards, we used the Internet to research the creatures we found and to draw pictures of them.

Our senses: sight

This week, we have continued our Marvellous Me topic by focusing on our sense of sight. So far, we have explored lots of different equipment that helps us to see more clearly or changes our vision like periscopes, magnifying glasses, microscopes and kaleidoscopes. In Literacy, we have looked at books

where we had to search and find for particular things and we wrote a class poem about what we can see through the window.
