Our Power of Reading text next half term will be...

Our Cornerstones topic next half term will be 'Muck, Mess and Mixture'. 

Muck and mess is good! In fact, it's mega-marvelous!

Pour, mix, stir and splat! We will be diving straight in with our hands AND feet. Keep an eye on our class page for updates on our messy learning adventure. 

Our first topic of the school year is 'Superheroes'. Both me and Miss Quigley are VERY excited!

Let’s put on our capes and discover our superpowers as we search for an answer to the question, ‘What is a superhero?’

Our Power of Reading book during our first half term in Purple Class will be...

We grew our own cress and then made egg, cheese and cress sandwiches. We learned about what plants need to grow and survive.

OUTDOOR MATHS - adding and subtracting.

We tested our boats, from our Spring 2 Home Learning Menu, to see if they would still float with the weight of a hard boiled egg on them. Here's what happened!

 

The winning boat didn't even wobble when the egg was placed in it!

The children have been practising their weaving skills. 

As part of our Beat, Band Boogie Topic, we made our own balloon drums. We then wrote instructions so that the other classes could also make balloon drums!

Learning our sounds is fun! We had to hunt for words around the classroom.

Purple Class children have been very busy this half term. Take a look at what we have been up to...

Today we have been learning about the steps needed to create a Hopscotch! Tomorrow we will write an instructional leaflet so that Beegu can make and play her very own Hopscotch game.

 

We have had an unexpected visitor to our school. Welcome Beegu!

We found Beegu's spaceship but unfortunately due to the crash, it was damaged.

 

We decided to build a spaceship for Beegu. We asked our lovely parents and carers to send in all of their unused and spare bottles, cardboard boxes and other junk modelling equipment. Here is how we got on.

 

We have been super busy in Maths. We have been learning all about place value and now we have moved onto number bonds!

 

Purple Class children love to show off and love having show and tell on Friday afternoons.

 

In Art and Design we created our own 3D model of Beegu using playdough. Even though Miss Ramzan added too much water to the mixture, our Beegu's were still amazing! We just had to use extra flour when handling the playdough.
