Miss Mandelson and Mrs Clegg - 17 Jun 2021

Embracing the Wider World
This week we finished looking at our class text 'Lila and the Secret of the Rain' and compared it with our previous text 'Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain'.  Both these stories are set in Kenya and have sparked the children's curiosity to find out more.
 

 
In RE, Mrs Harris introduced the children to the story of  the creation.  Take a look below at the super mobiles they made.  Our Geography took us all around the world this week as we looked at how the Earth is made up of 7 continents and 5 oceans.  Great fun was had as we used a version of the classic game Twister (with a twist) to practise locating them!  We also used maps to particularly look at and answer questions about the route from the UK to Kenya.

We have been using natural materials to support our Maths.  The younger children have been exploring the 'one more than/one less than' relationship between consecutive numbers by building a 'staircase' pattern.  They noticed that the next counting number includes the previous number plus one.  The older children have returned to the concept of multiplication as a way of finding the total when they have equal groups.  Take a look at how they used natural materials to explore the ten times table.

English with Mrs Clegg was a little unusual this week....we found a mystery recipe!  The ingredients were brown flour, white flour, baking soda and soda water.  We had to whisk all of the ingredients together and put a blob into a hot pan:

 The instructions said we had to wait until the bubbles popped and the edges curled up.  Leroy was excellent at carefully observing the mixture and told Mrs Cornforth when she needed to take the pan off the heat!  We were all really excited to try our creation...although we still weren't sure what it was.  Maisie said it tasted of oatmeal whereas Evie said it tasted of mouldy milk!  The best comment was by Mark: "it tastes like prison food!"  Mmm, is there something we don't know about you Mark?!  The Tigers are going to have to wait until next week to find out what they made....

This week the Tigers have been thinking about how they can shine stars at home as well as at school.  We wonder if parents or carers have noticed any examples.  Please do let us know.  At school, 'shining stars' have been given for all sorts of things, including reading, taking care with spellings and letter formation and much more.  The Reception children are impressing us more and more with their independence when reading and writing.  They are going to be super Y1s!

Finally we would like to wish Mrs Millions a speedy recovery following a medical procedure this week and say a big thank you to Mrs Cornforth who has stepped in whilst Mrs Millions is on leave.
