Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

27th April 2023

This week we have enjoyed finishing our re-write of 'The Leopard's Drum'. Miss Hayward was really impressed with our use of adjectives, to add detail to our stories, as well as some adventurous use of speech marks and exclamation marks too! We have enjoyed learning about a story from another culture and look forward to our next story, 'Rumpelstiltskin'. 


We also had lots of fun in Maths, this week, and showed a visitor our amazing call and response and use of STEM sentences in our learning. The resilience demonstrated, when learning about arrays, was fantastic and we all ended the lesson feeling very proud! We have started to make, and add, equal groups together in readiness for learning about multiplication.


Our favourite lesson this week was Science! Mrs Ward brought in lots of weeds into school, that she had dug up in her garden. We loved exploring the weeds using magnifying glasses and seeing the details and patterns on the leaves. Lavender table had a dandelion and enjoyed learning about the tiny seeds that are within the dying flower! Miss Hayward enjoyed listening to Lavender table share their learning with the other tables and showing them what they had found.  We all learnt about the different parts of a plant (roots, stem, leaves, seeds, flower) and learnt actions to help us remember what each part of the plant does!


We look forward to planting our own seeds next week and watching them grow! Many thanks for the very kind donations of seeds, pots and compost, all of which will provide a lot of enjoyment and learning opportunities for the class.


Have a lovely bank holiday weekend!
