Let us entertain you!

Lots of children have been bringing in conkers from their family walks, so we decided it would be a great idea to sing this song. It is called ‘Conkers’.

We have also sent home the words so you can sing along too!

We hope you enjoy it.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

Our classroom is looking GREAT!

The children have been busy helping to make their classroom look great. I thought I would share some photos of our displays, as you don’t get the opportunity to come into school at the minute.

The topic to begin with is ‘All about Ourselves and Others in Class’, so we asked the children to show us how good they are at writing their name.

 

They have also been looking in mirrors and drawing themselves.

They then worked as a team to make our entrance to our classroom look beautiful too.

 

We LOVE exploring our new outside environment!

Here are some photos from the last couple of days.

The children are having great fun!

They just love the trim trail. It’s lovely to see children helping each other to achieve too.

We are already making a GREAT TEAM!

Our first school lunch time!

We all had lunch together in the school hall today for the very first time. Some of us even managed to clear our plates. We were amazing!

Here are a few photos of us.

Good times in Wrens 2019 – 2020

Hi Wrens,

I thought I would share some of our photos from the time we had together. It did come to an abrupt end, but we had some great times. It has made me smile putting this together, so I’m sure it will make you smile too.

A HUGE thankyou for all working hard, and digging deep at this strange time.

You have been superstars!

Sending you a big virtual hug.

Love Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs x

 

Wrens Home Learning w/b 6/7/20

Well another week has passed, and looking out of the window, today is definitely a wellington boot kind of day!

A BIG well done to everyone reading their books on Active Learn. Keep up the fabulous work!

This week in class we have based our learning around the book

Here’s the youtube link to listen to it.

Literacy

In our Literacy lessons we have sequenced the story. What happened first, next, etc. We used the sheet below.

We also wrote thought bubbles and speech bubbles for spiders. We imagined they were in the classroom looking at us. What were they thinking? What would they be saying if they could talk? We used the sheets below.

We then watched some children’s youtube videos on spiders, and then wrote some facts about them too. Like below. We tried really hard to form our letters correctly, use our digraph/trigraph knowledge to write longer words, and make sure we use finger spaces between our words.

We then learnt about the parts of the spider and labelled them.

Maths

In maths we have been working a lot on adding single digit numbers. We played spider bingo.

We rolled the dice twice and then used our fingers, cubes and our number lines to help us add the numbers together. We then used our highlighters to mark off our bingo card.

Some of us also had a go at this one.

We had to add three numbers together. Again we used cubes to help us.

Creative

We enjoyed our craft activities this week. We made these hats first, so we could wear them whilst we sang this spider song.

We also created these too, using paper plates, card, paint, white chalk and googly eyes.

We then went on to make these spiders using wool, pipe cleaners and google eyes.

If none of those take your fancy you could create spiders using your hands and paint.

We hope you enjoy this weeks learning, as much as we did.

Take care Mrs Marriott and Mrs Briggs x

 

Wrens Home Learning – w/b 29/6/20

Hi everyone,

we would just like to start by saying to all who are home learning, keep up the great work! We are obviously missing seeing your little smiley faces, but we are loving your emails and photos. Please keep them coming.

This week in school we have based our learning around the book ‘Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell’. It did make us giggle when we heard the story.

Here is a link for you to listen to it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4BcBtKHaO8

Creative

As Norman flew off at the end of the story using a pair of pants, it got us thinking about other things he could perhaps use for a pair of wings. We drew a picture of what we thought would make a great pair of wings for him.

We also created these…

We tried to create repeating spiral patterns for his shell like above.

Maths

We have been doing lots of quick fire maths games to kick us off. Answering questions linked to doubling, one more and one less than numbers to 20, and adding/subtracting single digits.

Some of us have also been counting in 2’s to 20. We clapped these has we said them first. We then also completed these below. You could print them off and have a go too.

The sheet below we cut up for the children first. Then they had to put it together like a jigsaw. We then turned our paper over and tried to write the 2’s numbers to 20 independently.

Others in class had a go at these too..

Literacy

We have been working a lot on sentences this week. We were trying hard to make sure we…

    • used finger spaces between our words
    • formed our letters correctly
    • used our phase 3 phonic knowledge to spell longer words we wanted to write.

First of all, we wrote all about our design for Norman’s new wings. We also watched some films online about slugs and snail, and then wrote about what we had learnt about them. Please don’t forget to keep working on your digraph/trigraph knowledge. Use the phase 3 mat below and see how many words you can write for each of the digraphs/trigraphs. For example, ‘igh’ trigraph – light, night, sight.

    Then write sentences with some of the words in too. For example, “The cow was on the farm”  “The light was on in my room”.
    Bye for now and keep going. You are doing a brilliant job.
    Love Mrs Marrriott & Mrs Briggs x

 

Wrens Learn the ‘Superworm’ song

As our learning has been around the story book ‘Superworm’ this week, we decided to learn this song.

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Home Learning – Wrens w/b 22/6/20

Hi everyone,

this week in school we have been basing a lot of our learning around the book ‘Superworm’. You can listen to it here if you don’t have it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jnk3XApKBg

Literacy

In literacy, we went on a digraph/trigraph hunt outside. You could make your own cards using scrap paper and the mat below. You could then get an adult to hide them outside, and then you go and find them. Every time you find one tick them off your mat. See below.

We then had a go at writing one word for each digraph and trigraph. e.g ‘ch’ = chip  ‘igh’ = night

We also read the story ‘Superworm’ then tried to create a new page for the book. What else could ‘Superworm’ be used for? He was used as a belt, a hat and a skipping rope etc. Can you think of another use for him? Write some sentences to create your own page or pages for the story book ‘Superworm’.

We also learnt about Earthworms, by watching youtube clips, and PowerPoints. Then we completed our charts below.

Creating these…

Maths

This week we have been working on halving.

We watched a halving story first.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=663FhDCwhkY

We then used hoops and markers/bottle lids outside to halve amounts said. For example half of 2. Children found 2 lids/cones and then had to share them between the two hoops. We repeated this with different amounts up to 12.

or you can using these halving mats and objects.

Understanding the word

We have been learning about the life cycle of a worm, and creating wormeries. We created a life cycle of a worm hat to wear, whilst we sang our ‘Superworm’ song

see link below for the ‘Superworm’ song.

Creative

We have been busy making our own ‘Superworms’ too. like these below. We cut their body out of card, and then wrapped wool around them, creating a repeating pattern on them. We then made them red capes too.

We made pipe cleaner worms too.

We have also learnt to sing this song.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ACKMwCvhkY

Have fun!

Love Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs

We love learning outdoors!

We went on a digraph and trigraph hunt.

We then came inside and had to think of one word for each of the digraphs and trigraphs that we found.

In maths this week we have been learning about halving amounts. We used hula hoops, lids and markers to help us work out the answer.
