Reception discovered that pirates have stolen some tricky word treasure! They stole 'are' but we think they mistook it for 'oo-argh'! The children went on a tricky word hunt and searched books in our classes and the library for 'are'.
Does anybody recognise these shipmates?
Here's Cabin Boy Slim Jim and Captain Ruthless Parrot!
What's your pirate name?
This week Reception children have been baking pirate biscuits! We read a recipe, weighed the ingredients and followed the instructions to bake. Then, while the biscuits baked, the children were challenged to write a list of ingredients or their own recipe! We have been learning about weight and we talked about which ingredients were heavy or light, and some of the children were even challenged to weigh the ingredients using the scales. Then we enjoyed a pirate story while we ate our biscuits.
EYFS had a special visit from Bolton College today, who came to run lots of exciting activities as part of their Travel and Tourism course. Reception were lucky enough to have their faces painted!
Can you tell who all of these butterflies, tigers and dinosaurs are?
Reception have been learning about pirates!
We have read pirate stories, learnt pirate songs, created pirate crafts, written some messages in bottles and been on treasure hunts! The children have been very enthusiastic about pirates and really challenged themselves!
The children have been practising their reading skills on a new audience; some of the boys and girls from ESSA!
Our parents have been watching phonics sessions at Family Friday. They were all very impressed with the progress we have made in phonics and how we are using our phonics in reading and writing.
We hope you learnt lots to keep helping this amazing progress at home. Don't forget to check out Mr Thorne's website if you aren't sure how to pronounce any of the sounds your child has been learning! And you can always come and speak to a grown up at school if you would like any more ideas or you need any support with helping your child in phonics.
We have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes. This is part of the Shape, Space and Measures Early Learning Goal, and we need to talk about shapes using mathematical language.
Our challenge was to find 3D shapes in our classroom. Isa and Bilal took the challenge very seriously and even took photographs of the shapes they found using the iPads! Then they were super coaches and helped other children to find and talk about shapes. We have been describing shapes as well.
