Its Week 6 - Lets see what's been happening in Y3..............

This week in reading we learnt all about theatres and plays. We looked at some playscripts (Jack and the Beanstalk and James and the Giant Peach) and acted them out on a 'stage' in our classroom. We thought about the actions and expressions that the characters would have and then performed them to each other. In maths we looked at using estimates and calculations to check our answers. In writing we looked at the poem 'The Jabberwocky' and thought about the story and inferred what all of the nonsense words might mean. In science we wrote up our shadow experiment and learnt how to show the results in a graph. We have also been getting ready for our virtual christmas concert and recording our performances.

This week in nursery we have been getting the classroom ready for Christmas. We have made decorations for our Christmas tree. We have used the play dough to make Christmas trees and we have all made our own Christmas cards to take home next week. We have also been practicing singing our favourite festive songs. We love playing the bells in time to jingle bells.

Its Week 5 - Lets see what's been happening in Nursery..............

This week in nursery we have been learning all about pets. We have made cats, dogs and fish using lots of different materials in our workshop area. We really enjoyed painting animals too. We have learnt to name lots of pets and have even learnt a new song about visiting a pet shop. We also had an exciting delivery in a box and did lots of talking about what we thought was inside. It was our Christmas Tree! We have enjoyed making a start on decorating it with different shapes.
