It was great to see everyone again after the Easter break and we have had a lovely first week back.
There has been some excellent team work, sharing and creativity in our continuous provision this week. The Garden Centre role play area has been a real hit too! Take a look at some of the activities that we chose:
In Maths this week we have been focusing on measuring mass. We have enjoyed using non-standard units such as blocks to measure and compare the mass of objects in the classroom. One object that we measured had a mass of over 100 blocks! We worked hard on using the key vocabulary heavier, lighter, equal and balanced.
In Science this term we are continuing our learning about plants with a particular focus on growing plants. Our tomato plants have arrived and we are working as a team to help them to grow healthily.
It was great to continue our outdoor learning at Forest School this week. The sun was shining and lots of fun was had.
We have started our work on our topic for this term-The Great Fire of London. There has been lots of excitement about the new topic and we have started our Great Fire of London Dance in PE. It was great to see so much creativity and confidence as we started to choreograph and perform our routines.
There was a big surprise in Year 1 Evenlode Class this week as the children received their Easter eggs from the Dunelm Oxford competition. The children thoroughly deserved a treat for working so hard and adapting so well to the changes that they have faced throughout the Covid 19 pandemic. A big thank you to Dunelm Oxford for making our children so happy, what a great way to support the local community.
