Thank you to everybody who put so much effort into making this year's World Book Day such an incredible expereince for both the children & staff in Wren Class!
Today we have amazed Mrs Bartlett with our story-telling...
This afternoon we've been learning about what plants need to survive. We planted our own seeds to grow a beanstalk and designed a castle for the top... Be sure to ask us how they're getting on over the next couple of weeks!
We have been learning a new skill at Beoley this term. World Champion Trompo players have been trainin us for a competition & we're doing very well!
The perfect Trompo stance.
Wren Class heat winners
We have been getting very muddy and eating lots of yummy treats this half-term! We are expert camp-fire dwellers & love to feel its warmth after a long trek.
In reception we have been practising writing our name writing, counting to 20 and reading using our phonics this term - we're really impressing Mrs Bartlett!
The Great Fire of London
We built a replica of Pudding Lane in class and Mrs Bartlett took us outside so that we could see how quickly the fire wuld have spread through the houses.
Even though we had read all about it & watched a video from Magic Grandpa we were amazed by how quickly the fire spread!
We have been so busy recently! We are loving exploring our new topic 'The Farm' & think Mrs Bartlett's book choice has been fantastic!
We have also read a couple of the other titles in this series - we are definitely Supertato fans!
We have been learning about fruits and vegetables that grow in our gardens, our farms and in different areas around the world.
In our school garden we found, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, pumpkins and sweetcorn growing!
What do you grow in your garden?
Have a look at some of our other pictures from this week to see what we've been up to!
We've had so much fun making new friends this week! We've become snack-time experts & found all of the toys!
In Wren class we love learning new tricky words. Check out these videos:
Yesterday, we had lots of fun exploring (chocolatey) poo. Mrs Bartlett had received the poo (porridge oats, cocoa powder and few added bits) along with a letter requesting our help! We were asked to help the scientists label the poo as coming from a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore. Mrs Bartlett was very impressed with our deductions! Here are a few pictures of our investiagtion.
This term we will be learning about Neil Armstrong. To get our learning underway, Mrs Bartlett shared this presentation with us.
Look what we've been doing!
We've been learning about our bodies. We labelled all of the parts of the body and added any organs or bones that we knew. Some of us knew where our kidneys were, our skull and even our spine.
In our outdoor learning we have been designing leaf accessories and learning which trees we have in school. We have also been sawing from a log (watch this space for Christmas gifts!) and hammering on leaves to leave a print on our card. We have really enjoyed these jobs!
In maths this week we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We have been sorting, naming and even building our own!
We have been problem solving this week too. We chose the equipment that we would need to find the solution to the calculations.
Our First Week in Wren Class
We've been really busy this week making new friends and exploring our new classroom!
