The Detective Dog! 

This week we have been reading the 'Detective Dog', who is helping the children get their books back! Cedar class wrote letters as the character of Detective Dog....some of them really made us smile! 

Active 10 - Hula Hoops

The children have been really enjoying their active 10 this week! We have been using the hoops to hula, throw and catch and skip through. It is really helping the children to focus early in the morning. 



Greater than, less than and equals to

This week we have been exploring the signs <   >    and = 

We described = as 'the same as' 

Children were using resources to make correct equations. 

The children loved using the resources!! 

Our Active Number Bonds

Wherever we can we try to keep our learning as active as possible. To practise our number bonds we worked in pairs using numicon to make pairs of numbers.

Remember knowing number bonds to 10 off by heart is a really important skill, so practise a lot at home! 

See below some websites that can help you practise.

For our new topic 'The Stories That People Tell', we introduced our classes to their new class bear. Cedar's class bear is named 'George'. The children love dressing him and taking him to P.E and Forest School. They have also been reading to him and sharing their great work with him too! 

Countries Day

Countries Day 1
Countries Day 2

Cedar, Beech and Elm class had a fantastic day during our countries day. The children were really brave in trying new food from around the world. They tried biltong and 'Koeksisters' from South Africa and olives from Italy (which didn't go down well at all!). 

We hope the children were buzzing about the day when they came home from school. 

Cedar and Beech P.E! 


Cedar and Beech mixed up again for P.E and we enjoyed some throwing and jumping activities. We used the javelins and practised shot-put with tennis balls. The children worked hard to aim and throw precisely. 

Jumping Jelly Beans in PE!

Ks1 Doctors and Nurses Day

To culminate our topic on Florence Nightingale we had a Doctors and Nurses dress up day! The children were mixed into groups from Beech, Cedar and Elm and they took part in a range of different activities. They had a drama session, focusing on the thoughts and feelings of Florence and the soldiers in the Crimean War. They took part in a first aid session, learning some basic lifesaving skills. They explored their pulse and heart beats with stethoscopes and they became x-ray detectives to find out which part of the bodies were visible in the real life x-rays! The children had a fantastic day and they looked great in their costumes!
