Spring Term Newsletter
It has been so fantastic this week to welcome everyone back into the classroom. The children have settled back in brilliantly to the routines and have coped remarkably well with the transition back from home learning. A huge thank you to all our parents for the effort you have put in supporting your children in their home learning.
In English we are continuing with Beegu , the little alien who crash lands on Earth and strives to find some friends. The children are learning how to write in role as Beegu and so have to think about how she is feeling in each part of the story.
In maths we are learning about multiplication. This initially starts with recognising equal groups of objects or counters before counting up in equal groups.
In DT we have been designing moon buggies and we will be making them over the next few weeks. Please can you collect any small cardboard boxes for the children to use for their models.
In science we are learning about the season of spring and the changes that we see as we move from winter to spring.
As part of our 5 Ways to Wellbeing the children will be encouraged to do these 5 things every day:
Learn (we do lots of this!!),
Notice (take some time to look carefully at things around us) ,
Connect (ask questions and listen to others),
Be Active (think about how active they are each day),
Give (make others happy by giving a smile or friendship).
Computing - Animated Story Book
The children told a story of an animal finding a new home by creating an animated story using the 2Create a Story within Purple Mash. The news skills they learnt were:
- touch pad control by drawing an animal
- adding animation
- adding sound or recording a sound
- adding a background
- copy and paste their animal onto a new page
- save their work
Below is an example of the work created. Well Done Koalas!
