The last week of term finally arrived and although it was a short week it was still rather busy!
We finished making our Easter cards. Having painted them last week, we removed the masking tape which had been stuck on in the form of a cross and were amazed at the final result. We wrote our Easter messages inside in our very best handwriting.
In Literacy we continued with our no fiction topic of Does chocolate grow on trees? and have been creating our own flow charts, complete with captions and instructions.
In Maths the Year 2s have been adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers without number squares and although it has been rather tricky they have enjoyed the challenge and were extremely pleased with themselves when they managed to solve the problems. The Year 1s have been adding and subtracting numbers to 20 using number lines and bead strings.
This week we learned all about Mary Seacole and watched a video of her life story and the work she did to help the soldiers on the battlefields in the Crimean War. We were so surprised at the conditions of the hospitals when we saw them and then had to sort the differences between hospitals then and now.
For homework we had to draw a picture of our favourite person that we have studied so far and talk about them.
Heather chose Neil Armstrong and was very creative with her drawing explaining the route he took from Earth to the Moon.
Sienna’s grandma was actually a Nightingale nurse so Sienna talked about Florence Nightingale and brought a lovely book to share with us along with an example of he Nightingale badge given to all Nightingale nurses.
Greys class have been practising very hard over the last few weeks with Mrs Clinkard for the Easter service and performed exceptionally well in Church on Wednesday morning.
After lunch on Wednesday we split into our teams and decorated our eggs ready for the Easter egg roll.
Here are a few pictures of Willow team decorating their masterpieces.
The egg rolling was so much fun.
Mr Steele gave us a few tips before we began.
We were all exhausted after the egg roll and set off to enjoy our Easter holidays.
There will be no homework over the holidays, but do please try and read if you can.
Show and Tell when we get back will be our favourite books and will be
Monday – Freya
Tuesday – Sienna
Wednesday – Elodie
Thursday – Freddie
Friday – Toby
PE after half term will be on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.
Our topic after Easter will be How can we grow our own salad? whereby we will be investigating plants which includes a planting workshop at Greys Court on Monday 25th April.
We would like to wish everyone a very Happy Easter and hope you all enjoy your Easter break.
