week beginning 20th February

This week we have been investigating how to join materials using split pins, used puppets to retell stories and learnt how to draw a polar bear’s face! The weather was also very windy so we spent time outside using our dressing up wings! In phonics we focused on ‘air’ as in hair, ‘ure’ as in cure and ‘er’ as in corner. We also began to practise our subtraction skills.



Week beginning 6th February

During this week we have been making igloos out of sugar cubes, sharing our learning journals with our family, measuring ourselves against a life size polar bear, building igloos out of boxes and Y6 came and shared the picture books they have written with us. We also carried out an experiment to find out how polar bears stay warm in icy cold water! Our phonics sounds have been ‘oi’ as in coin, ‘ur’ as in hurt, ‘ow’ as in cow, and ‘ear’ as in hear.


Wk beginning 30th January

This week we began by looking at Chinese New Year. We made some dragons and Y1 came to share their knowledge of China, they had made Chinese scrolls. We have been on shape hunts around the school and found a variety of 2d shapes. We have begun to learn about polar bears and their habitat as well investigating how we can help ice to melt faster. We looked at our learning journals and talked about our favourite photographs. In phonics we have focused on the sounds ‘oo’ – as is ‘good’ and ‘soon’, ‘ar’ as in ‘car’ and ‘or’ as in ‘for’.

Don’t forget that next week is Learning Journal week and you are welcome to come and look at them with your child every morning.
