On Tuesday 21st February our school watched a fantastic performance on E-Safety. We learnt about how to be safe online, how to protect ourselves and who to talk to if anything happens when we are online.
Wow Day- Superheroes
To introduce our new topic the children dressed up as their favourite Superhero. We wrote about our Superheroes and painted pictures. We read the story of Traction man and acted out scenes from the book.
Following our assembly from NSPCC the children took part in ‘Aspirational Dress Up Day’ on Thursday 9th February. The children came to school dressed up as something they would like to be when they grow up. We wrote about our aspirations…….
The Whale and the Snail
Apple class have been reading the book ‘The Snail and the Whale’ this term. We have produced some fantastic art work and written our own diary entries.
Today we have been learning how to half and quarter different quantities. You can see how we have used the CPA approach in our learning.
Visit to Bristol Aquarium
Apple class had a great day at Bristol Aquarium learning all about the different ocean creatures we have been studying in class.
Are you a purple learner?
At the start of term we began to learn what ‘Purple learners’ were and how we can become brilliant learners. The children were encouraged to get on the purple learning bus. The purple bus is a challenge area in which a learner can succeed and experience real achievement if s/he has a great attitude and puts in lots of effort. There will be 2 daily purple learner awards, so look out for your child taking it home.
