We Are the Champions!

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Premier Stars and the Premier League Trophy. We found out some interesting facts. We learnt the values: Inspire, be ambitious, be fair and be connected.

In Literacy we have been writing a narrative for a clip: https://www.literacyshed.com/whistleless.html. In Maths we have been investigating numbers.

Planning Our Future!

We have been gathering vocabulary and adjectives to support our writing. We came to school dressed as what we want to be when we grow up. In Maths we have been ordering our routine and reading o’clock and half past times. In Phonics we have been identifying words that have split digraphs.

 

 

 

Remember, Remember The Fifth of November!

We went to St Albans High Street to do a survey of the different types of shops. We used tally charts to record our data. In Literacy we have been retelling the story of ‘The Gunpowder Plot’. We have been making skeleton puppets.

 

Saints Go Marching in!

In Maths we have been using rulers to measure and order objects. We have been writing a recount of what we did in the Half Term. We used Picasso as an inspiration for our art work. We retold the story of how Alban became a Saint.

Amazing Adjectives!

We read the story ‘The Gruffalo’ and we have been using adjectives to describe the different characters. We walked to the Cathedral to do observational drawings. In Maths we have been using positional language. We hope you have a lovely break!

 

The Long and Short of It!

In Literacy we have been using conjunctions to join sentences. In Maths we have been using different resources to measure the length and height. We used the Beebots and the Ipads to complete algorithms (a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer).

Caption This!

In Literacy we have been labelling a picture, writing captions and descriptions about our friends. In Maths we have been using different resources to solve addition number sentences. We have been talking about special places and why they are special to us.

Welcome Back!

Our topic this term is ‘Me, Myself and I’. We have been using capital letters and full stops in our writing. In Maths we have been ordering and writing numbers. We have been matching quantity to the number and have been looking at more and less. We used our senses to explore a range of things. We identified natural objects.

 

So long, farewell….

What an amazing year! We are so SO proud, I know we have said it before, but we truly mean it. Each year the children we teach continue to inspire us and bring us smiles in their own ways.

All of us in the EYFS team are humbled by your kind words and generous gifts. Your words mean a lot to us all. Thank you for all your continued support.

Have an amazing summer and we know that some of us (staff included) have new adventures on the horizon. Good luck to you all.

From acorns to oak trees…

This week has been an eventful week, with the main event being transition day. We hope you have enjoyed reading the children’s reports. We are all so pleased with the children’s progress both as individuals and academically. Seeing them grow in many ways is such a wonderful privilege for us. The children spent yesterday in Year One with their new teachers in Aqua and Sky class. They had a ‘whale of a time’ and realised that ‘sky’s the limit’! Reading books will be collected in next week and we will send home a summer pack of ideas to support the children’s learning over the holidays. Don’t forget that there is also the ‘reading challenge’ held at your local libraries.
