Term 3

8th Jan

Well we have survived the first week, and it's been a very strange week for everyone no doubt.

It is very quiet in the classroom without everyone in and Mrs Lines, myself and the children that are in are missing the rest of the Pandas.

The day in school continues to follow the usual routine;

AM: morning mission, English, small group, independent learning and Phonics.

PM: maths, independent learning, story.

During independent learning we've been making junk model rockets, painted our moons, played games and listened to readers.

All the activities we have done in school have been uploaded to seesaw or classdojo for home learners to have a go at too and Mrs Lines and I have loved seeing what you been up to. We hope you have enjoyed having a go at home and apologies for any delays in uploading activities we have been experiencing a few IT issues.



16th Jan

We have enjoyed the Aliens Love Underpants story this week.

We have designed our own Aliens, practiced our alien words, tried alien maths and written messages to the Aliens.

We hope you've enjoyed joining in at home. We have loved seeing what you have been up to.

We are so glad the Aliens have finally given Floppy back and he is now recovering at Mrs Lines' house.

It was lovely to see those of you who could make it on our zoom call on Friday afternoon.

Next week we are going to continue our space theme. We are hoping to make our own paper-mache planets and some "moon rock" cakes.



22nd Jan

We've been off into space this week again.

We have enjoyed The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet. We've also looked at some non-fiction books about space and found out about the different planets.

We've use paper mache to create our own planets, this was very sticky but good fun.

The best part was cooking our own "Moon Rock" cakes and eating them for snack time. They were very yummy. It looks as if the children at home have had fun cooking too!

Forest School was very muddy but that meant there were some great puddles for jumping in! Just remember to keep your mouth closed when you jump because a mouthful of muddy water does not taste nice as Mrs Sheppard found out.

We have looked at repeating patterns in maths, making patterns with our toys and our lunch!

In Phonics we have started learning some new diagraphs. Fred the frog and Frod the alien have been helping us blend them in real and alien words.
