Sorting seasons in science 

Today in science we were finding out about the weather associated with each season. Children worked in groups to create seasons collages for our science display whilst listening to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

Empty disposable plastic water bottles request 

In science this term we are learning about the seasons and weather. Over the next few weeks we will be making rain gauges and wind socks to help with our observing and measuring of weather.  If you are able to send in any small empty plastic bottles we will be needing these to make our scientific instruments. If you can remove the labels please this would be helpful as we will be cutting up and decorating the bottles. 

Many thanks

Mrs Winter 

Weather forecasters and weather watchers

In our first science lesson of the year children began talking about the different weathers and linking them to the different seasons. Everyone enjoyed having a go at being a weather forecaster after watching the bbc weather. Children also went outside to see what the weather was doing and managed to experience sunshine, clouds and even a little rain shower all in one afternoon. 

New Start for the Hurricanes 

Welcome back to you all, we are very pleased to see your happy faces. All children have settled back into the school routine so well; we have been very impressed with how sensibly and calmly they have come back in to class and are able to get on with their work. 

This week we have started with a Literacy topic based around the book Here We Are - notes for living on planet earth by Oliver Jeffers. Children have been sharing their knowledge of life on Earth and our solar system.  They have begun writing about what they might show a visitor on Earth for the first time. 

Well done Hurricanes! 

Summer holiday activities 

Some parents asked me at the end of term if I would be setting any homework over the holiday. Whilst it is not expected that homework is set or completed over the summer break, I have put together some maths activities in the posts below to support children in developing key skills for multiplication and learning of the two, ten and five times tables. This supports their developing addition and subtraction skills, as well as their understanding of place value. If you are able to work with your child on these it will give them a good start to the new academic year. 

I would also encourage you to continue regular reading and sharing of books with your child; you may choose to continue to use Reading Eggs or share books from Oxford Owls as well as enjoying books at home. It is important that children continue to practice their phonics knowledge and skills. Writing for purpose may be done by keeping a regular diary of your holidays or writing postcards to friends and family. 

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing break and look forward to welcoming you back in September. 

Mrs Winter.
