Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 18 Mar 2021

Spring has Sprung!

It has been lovely to get outside more this week as the weather becomes more spring-like and the days are getting longer and lighter.  The Tigers have really got into their stride and are firing on all cylinders.  We began the week with some assessments and one child was even heard to say "I love doing these!  They are so much fun!"  

In English with Miss Mandelson we have continued with our froggy theme moving on from 'Oi Frog!' to begin to look at our new class text, 'Tadpole's Promise'.  Before reading the story, the children had a close look at the front cover and made some predictions.  They could see a tadpole and a caterpillar who clearly looked rather fond of each other and they used this information to see if they could guess what Tadpole's promise to Caterpillar might be.  There were some very insightful ideas including that Tadpole might promise to invite her over for a date, feed her some leaves, stay with her forever, marry her and even sacrifice his life for her!  But the idea that made us smile the most was that Tadpole's promise might be to remember to take the bins out!  This week the older children have also been thinking about making effective verb choices to improve some of the author's sentences.  Take a look at some of our examples of work below to see how they got on.

Coincidentally the children discovered what they thought was a frog on the school field this week, although on closer inspection it turned out to be a toad...
 
This led onto some lovely child-initiated learning thinking about habitats for frogs/toads and the creation of a great froggy swamp for sensory exploration!  It would be great to have some frogspawn in school for the children to observe.  If anyone comes across any during the Easter break, please do let us know.  We would not want it in school until after the holidays.

In Maths this week we have continued our work on measuring.  The Reception children have measured with cubes whilst the KS1 children have used centimetres and metres.  We have compared lengths and heights and tried really hard to use the words "taller than/longer than" rather than "bigger than."

We covered all of the curriculum on Thursday afternoon by doing some baking:

 This tied in with our English (lots of books about bears), Maths (measuring and weighing), Speaking and Listening (following and giving instructions), Science (changes to materials) and Art/DT- we love to be creative!

In geography, we have continued our whistle-stop tour of the UK.  This week we have focused on Northern Ireland to tie in with St Patrick's Day.  Many thanks to Mark and Sharon who decorated some buns with shamrocks during breakfast club ready for the Tigers to enjoy at the end of the day.  The younger children have been collaborating to make a weather map of the UK in our role-play area.  This is work in progress - come back next week to find out more...

Many of our Tigers have shone like stars this week for all sorts of things, including reading, contributions to Collective Worship, astounding classmates with their knowledge of life cycles and presentation of work:
