Buccaneers School Learners wb: 22.06.20

Here are just some of the things that have been happening in class this week. In maths we have been comparing objects using the balance scales to find which are heavier or lighter; we even made our own in the garden! We continued practicing our ball skills in PE. Then on Friday we used the balance scales to weigh ingredients against one egg to make fairy cakes. Our story focus this week was the Gingerbread Man, children have sequenced the story and added sentences to their pictures. We will be continuing with this story next week and plan to make gingerbread men.

Please find attached Learning Guidance and Maths Resources for this week. 

In phonics we are continuing with Phase 4 (polysyllabic words and words with adjacent consonants) as explained, see previous post for information and resources.

Literacy continues to be learning linked to Traditional Tales. In class this week our chosen story is the Gingerbread Man. Home Learners may select a story of their choice  or may choose to do the same. All literacy resources for each story are as previously posted on our class webpage. 

Science activities are those linked to your chosen story and are also previously posted. 

Please contact me via the email if you can not find the resources you require or have any questions. 

Best wishes to you all

Mrs Winter 

Can you float a goat in a boat? 

How can the three Billy Goats Gruff cross the river without trip trapping over the bridge and disturbing the Troll? By boat of course! On Thursday Buccaneers in class explored materials that float to design their own boats and transport the goats safely across to the green, green grass on the other side.

On Monday we went out onto the field to see the Red Arrows for their scheduled fly past, however, after waiting patiently, seeing the donkeys and ponies and playing many games of duck, duck, goose, we returned to the classroom, having not seen the Red Arrows but enjoyed being out on the field anyway. 

On Tuesday we continued practising our ball skills in PE, moving on to controlling the ball using a bat, passing with a partner and playing games of Jack Frost, Follow the Leader and Robbers. 

In the classroom children have really been enjoying retelling the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff using small world pieces. They have also been enjoying completing puzzles together and creating pictures and puppets from Traditional Tales.

Dear All 

Please see attached planning and maths resources for the coming week. 

Phonics and science resources are posted separately. If you can not find the resources you are looking for, scroll down to the bottom of our page then click on the next page (see picture above), keep going until you find the previous post you want; all posts for literacy, phonics and science activities and resources are there, but you may have to scroll through a few pages to find the one you require as there is so much on our pages now.  

On-line learning: School Learners - having the children access and complete on-line learning activities on the ipads in school is proving to be very difficult, managing when they are using this and the speed of the internet in the classroom makes it virtually impossible, therefore, as we are not sending any homework home, please consider this to be the children’s homework for the coming weeks. If you are unable to access these at home please let me know and I will try to support you.

As always, if you have any questions I will do my best to help or find someone who can!

Best wishes

Mrs W.
