Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 25 Sep 2020

There was something fishy...
...going on in Tiger Class this week!  Apologies if there were any strange aromas when the children came out of school!  We began the week by looking at the story of The Rainbow Fish which really helped us to explore the theme of friendship and how this links to our Christian values of kindness, love, patience and peace.  The children were able to offer Rainbow Fish some great advice when he found himself without friends.  In Maths, the younger children have enjoyed lots of fishy activities based on the rhyme 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I caught a fish alive, whilst the older children have got to grips with counting, reading and writing numbers up to 100.
The children also enjoyed getting up close and personal with a range of fresh fish in our investigation area.  Their curiosity held no bounds as they examined mackerel, sea bass, plaice and squid to identify eyes, tail, fins, scales, gills and even teeth and a tongue!  Next week we have more fishy adventures in store.  We won't spoil the surprise but we would like to say a very big thank you to Mr and Mrs Carrick who have provided a very special sea creature for us to examine.

Imagine if a tiny dragon landed on the school field.....that's what Blue and Green groups have been imagining this week.  What would the dragon do?  Eat Sharon's lunches, hide in the bathroom and even join in PE were some of their ideas! Last week the children used natural objects to create a dragon on the school field and we used this as a stimulus to plan a story..  The children have been trying really hard to use adjectives and write expanded noun phrases.  Well done!

The Reception children have started to learn some sounds.  This week we have learnt 's', 'a' and 't'.  Ask your child to show you the action and maybe even sing the 'jolly jngle!'  You could even try writing the letters in shaving foam on a mirror, with a stick in the mud or with your finger in the sky!

In Science we have found out about animal habitats.  Can your child tell you what three things a habitat provides?  We also linked this to our Art by colour mixing and painting a background, that will be the basis of our habitat pictures, that we will continue next week.

Have a super weekend everyone!
