Greys 12th February

It’s the final week of term and what a busy term we have had in Greys class!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our ‘Toys’ topic and finished it off this week talking about our favourite toys and explaining their history. We also played some traditional games and decided that it was rather fun playing games that didn’t need batteries.

We played dominoes.

Jack straws was rather tricky.

Isobel brought her game of pick up sticks to share.

Freya brought in Bagatelle.

Daisy showed us how to play tiddlywinks.

tiddlywinks

It’s been a great topic and we have learnt so much about toys in the past and present. Freya said that she never knew that teddies were named after an American president. We didn’t know that Crayola crayons started with only 8 colours! It has been fascinating comparing toys over the last few weeks.

In Maths this week the Year 1s have been doing lots of work comparing 2 digit numbers, saying which is higher and which is lower and then putting a selection of 2 digit numbers in order.

The Year 2s have been doing some tricky work with fractions and finding 1/4 and 1/2 of different amounts.

fractions

The Year 2s have also been looking at apostrophes and contractions and finished the week off by adding y to different words.

adding y

The Year 1s have been looking at alternative ways of reading and writing the ow sound and different ways of using the n sound.

We have been reading different versions of Little Red Riding Hood this week and wrote ‘Wanted’ posters to describe the Wolf. We made mini booklets describing the key points in each scene and acted the story out before embarking on our final Big Write of the term where we had to retell any version of Little Red Riding Hood.

Here we can see the Wolf arriving at Granny’s house.

This is Little Red Riding Hood talking to ‘Granny’ until

Finally we have a very tired Wolf snoring away before the Woodcutter arrives to save the day!

We also ‘hot seated’ the Wolf, Granny and Little Red Riding Hood and asked them lots of different questions.

hot seat

Mrs Byron told us all about Chinese New Year in assembly on Monday so in the afternoon we created our own dragons by folding paper to make a body and then used a head and tail with lolly sticks and decorated them.

chinese dragons

In Art we carried on from our still life drawing and used different pencils to practise our shading techniques. Some parents saw them and couldn’t believe that it was our class that had done them.

still life draw

In RE we learnt about Lent and made some important Lenten promises which will soon be on display. Some of us are going to give up chocolate, sweets or sugar, whilst others are giving up playing on the ipad. We also though about things that we could try to improve upon and do better at.

Show and Tell will be based on a favourite book and will be…

Monday – Benedict

Tuesday – Jasper

Wednesday – Bear

Thursday – Olivia

Friday – Max F.

There will be no spellings to learn over the holidays so have a super break and we look forward to another exciting term ahead.

Greys 5th February

We began the week in Maths by estimating and measuring the length of Rapunzel’s hair. The Year 1s used cubes to measure its length.

elodie cubes

Whilst the Year 2s measured in centimetres.

sienna maths

We also measured each other’s hair using string and then measured it against a ruler or cubes. Some of us measured to the nearest half centimetre. We also worked out the difference between our estimates and accurate measurements.

hair

The Year 2s have been looking at multiplication and division by putting items into sets and the Year 1s have been sorting odd and even numbers.

elodie and heather odds and evens

We even used a venn diagram to help us sort all sorts of 2 digit numbers.

sorting

In Literacy we have been describing the Wicked Queen from Snow White and have also been changing words from singular to plural.

Mrs Clinkard brought in some old toys for us to sketch ‘still life’ style and we had to really concentrate for this task. Imogen produced a fantastic sketch with lots of detail.

imogen still life still life

On Thursday we sorted toys into a timeline of when they were made and it showed us how important it was to work well together as a group.

daisy timeline oli timeline olivia timeline timeline

We also played a game and had to answer questions about toys from the past which was lots of fun.

freya game game

We thought about what it would be like at Christmas to have toys without batteries and at first we used words like boring, annoying and sad,  but after seeing and learning about different toys from the Victorian times and early 20th century we soon changed our minds! We had lots of fun making thaumotropes and were fascinated to find out the reasons why teddy bears are called Teddy bears.

In French we have been practising our counting which we are rather fabulous at and learning how to say ‘There are/is’ before the number.

Show and Tell has been fun this week with Joseph bringing in a lovely music box.

joe show and tell

Daisy bringing in her Daddy’s teddy and a very detailed account of snakes and ladders from Dylan, which made us all want to go and play the game over the weekend!

Greys January 29th

It’s been another busy week in Greys class.

In Literacy we read Mary and the twelve months, a story about a little girl whose stepmother sends her off to find impossible things and twelve funny little men save the day( the twelve months). We drew pictures of the twelve months and all the things associated with them.

months

We also thought of questions that Mary could ask the months and used question marks and speech marks in our writing.

In Big Write we had to create our own traditional tale. We thought of different characters, settings and baddies to choose from and then used Once upon a time to begin our story and happily ever after to end it. We are looking forward to sharing each others stories next week.

In Maths the Year 2s have been adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers to and from 2 digit numbers using bead lines, landmarked lines and number squares. The Year 1s have been working out which coins they would use to pay for certain amounts and totalling a number of coins.

In Phonics we  had a few challenges to see which group could create the most amount of words with the igh, ai sound and ow sound.

ow words

The Year 2s had their own challenge matching words to their contracted form.

contractions

In Topic we drew and wrote about our favourite toys. We also drew 2 toys from the past and thought of different sources of finding information about them.

We are creating a new display for our Reading area and used water and paint to create rainbows.

benedict painting tree

We mixed our own shades of green using blue and yellow paint and then mixed red and white to make pink for our castle.

ruby pink castle

We then used sponges to create a brick effect on black paper for our tower.

sponging tower

We can’t wait to see the finished display next week.

In RE we read The Parable of the Talents and thought about our own talents and how we can use them as God would like us to.

In French we sang our days of the week songs again and learnt the names of different colours.

Show and Tell has been fabulous this week with the children bringing in parents’ and grandparents’ toys. Astrid brought in George who was her Mummy’s teddy bear and also her Dad’s lego.

astrid 2

Ruby brought in a spinning top and told us all about the history of the spinning top which was rather fascinating and Josie brought in a very precious collection of old thimbles for us all to see.

Show and Tell next week will also be on Toys past and present.

Monday – Jamie

Tuesday – Isobel

Wednesday – Joseph

Thursday – Dylan

Friday – Daisy

Have a lovely weekend!

 

Greys 22nd January

What an action packed week Greys class have had!

We have begun our new topic of ” Why is the wii more fun that Grandma and Grandad’s old toys?’ in which we will be exploring toys past and present.

To kick start this exciting topic Wendy Taylor (Jamie’s granny) came in with lots and lots of her toys, books and puzzles to share with us. We had so much fun asking Wendy all sorts of questions; ‘What was her favourite toy as a child?’ ‘What were toys made from?’ and many more questions.

wendy

She also bought in quite a few of Jamie’s Daddy’s toys and we sorted some of the toys into different decades.

wendy 1

 It was interesting comparing the old books and the new books and we managed to find a lovely nursery rhyme book and sat reading The Owl and the Pussy Cat.

Wendy even brought a book in which was 250 years old, it was fantastic!

wendy 2

Some of us became very engrossed in doing the puzzles and enjoyed playing with Muffin the mule and we all loved the meccano.

We really enjoyed Wendy’s visit and had such a fun afternoon sharing her treasures and learning all about them.

The following day we arrived at school bright and early ready for our trip to Milestones. Despite the journey taking a little bit longer than we thought it might because of some very annoying traffic we arrived on time for another action packed and fun filled day exploring toys through the ages.

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we walked through the doors and saw the cobbled streets with all the old shops and vehicles, we really were going back in time, it was very exciting!

street

street scene

We had a workshop with a lady called Maggie whereby we were split into five groups and did a carousel of activities. We sorted toys into old and new and then thought about their properties, lots of us particularly loved the silver rattle but decided it might not be a sensible toy for Jasper’s new baby brother.

old and new

We arranged toys in a timeline and even the adults found this rather tricky, Benedict decided that the spilikins were made of bone so they must be old as we don’t make toys from bone anymore, in fact he was correct as they were 100 years old!

timeline 1

We had to sort some toys into would we send them to the museum, car boot, rubbish dump or keep them. Mrs Clinkard definitely wanted to keep Humpty Dumpty as he reminded her of the one her daughter had when she was a little girl.

museum

We answered riddles and had to guess which toy they matched and Mrs Hawkins thought we were talking about her when we said I am very precious, I am loved by little girls, but we were talking about a very old china doll!

We also had to think about properties of toys. We were very good at this as we remembered properties from when we had studied Materials and Light and Dark.

ruby answer question

bandstand chat

After lunch we got to go to the Penny Arcade and use old fashioned pennies to play the games, it was so much fun! We went on rides, we won sweets and nail varnishes! Some of us had our x rays taken and Sienna and Daisy even had their fortunes told by a very funny looking lady in a machine, but they knew it was just a bit of fun. We watched puppet shows using marionettes just like Muffin that Wendy had brought in.

sootypuppet arcadejoe aracde

Then we explored the Museum and visited the Sweetie shop with our old pennies and ration books.

daisy sweet shop

We sat on an old double decker bus and saw all sorts of modes of transport.

We loved looking in the Teddy Bear shop.

We explored how people used to live in the different decades.

grocers

To finish off our afternoon we dressed up using the old outfits.

nancy and heatherGI Isabeldressing up

We had a great day and lots of us have already asked our parents to take us back in the holidays. We would like to say a very big thank you to Mr Tanner for driving one of the minibuses and helping us out all day and also to Mrs Hall, Mrs Kriefman and Mrs Waite who were fantastic helpers on our visit.

In Literacy we have started to look at Traditional Tales and will be doing so until the end of term. We all had to decided on our favourite traditional tale and the Year 1s told us who the main characters were in their story, whilst the Year 2s wrote a blurb for theirs. We read Snow White and the seven dwarfs and acted the story out with Ruby as Snow White and Bear as Prince Charming.

prince charming and snow white

Heather played the role of the wicked Queen.

wicked queen

 We sequenced the story and then working in pairs thought of questions to ask the Magic Mirror whilst our partner wrote the answer and then changed around.

Homework this week will be to paint or draw a picture (no bigger than A4 size) of their favourite fairy tale character(s) and on a separate piece of paper to write a character(s) description using adjectives and similes as we have been doing in class over the last few weeks.

In RE we painted sheep for our Parable of the lost sheep display and talked about the meaning of the story.

In Maths the Year 1s have been working with number bonds to 8 and 9 and adding 3 single digit numbers using number bonds to 10. The Year 2s have been adding and subtracting 1 and 2 digit numbers to and from 2 digit numbers using number squares.

doubling

josie maths

In French we have been learning the days of the week and the Year 2s taught the Year 1s the Days of the week song that Mrs Brealey taught them last year, it was lots of fun.

Congratulations to Jasper and his family who have welcomed Jesse into the world and we are all looking forward to meeting him soon.

Show and tell next week will be

Monday – Harrison

Tuesday – Astrid

Wednesday – Ruby

Thursday – Heather

Friday – Josie

Have a lovely weekend!

Greys 15th January

Greys class began the week with a trip to the River and Rowing Museum for a workshop on Light and Dark.

Our first session involved a carousel of activities where we explored sources of light and shadows.

shadows

We did an experiment to see if we could see a reflection in a mirror and had to say which Wind in the Willows characters we could see and this wasn’t as easy as we first thought it might be!

reflection

We looked closely at some nocturnal animals and couldn’t believe how big the mole’s hands and feet were, we now know why they are such good diggers!

nocturnal

We also investigated which materials were reflective and learnt the meaning of opaque, transparent and translucent.

We even managed to fly…

We took part in an art workshop where we learnt about different artists who have used light and dark in their artwork.

We then created pictures of light, dark and shadows using screen printing, collage and scraping techniques.

art 2

We really concentrated on what we were doing and produced some beautiful artwork to go on display in the classroom.

After lunch we wandered through the galleries searching for sources of light, shadows and lots of other things related to our topic. However, on our search we managed to spot a few familiar faces…

Josie found her grandad

and Elodie found hers too!

In Maths the Year 1s have been exploring 1 more and 1 less than and 10 more than and 10 less than. The Year 2s have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and using the less than and more than symbols.

In Literacy we read Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and used adjectives and similes to describe the creatures the owls would eat and where they would find them. We then had to think of things the Owl Babies might say and the Year 1s used speech bubbles to write theirs and the Year 2s did a rather fabulous job of using speech marks for theirs.

In Computing we created a word document and changed the font, colour and size of the text and learnt how to save and print a document.

On Wednesday we went to Church and the Year 2s read their memories of Mrs Brealey to her with some of the Year 3s. It was lovely to remember together and think of all the special times we shared with Mrs Brealey and to be able to tell her how much she means to us. We will miss her lots but have some fantastic stories of our time with her which we will never forget.

greys 2014

Sadie from Feathers and Fur paid us a visit on Thursday morning and brought a barn owl, tawny owl and peregrine falcon to show us.

The barn owl was just like Plop..

Everyone in our class got to hold the tawny owl who was like Percy from Owl Babies

We learnt lots of fascinating facts and couldn’t believe what an owl pellet contained!

We spent a long time with the owls but still managed to have some time with the peregrine falcon who was pretty impressive.

On Friday in Big Write we carried on the Owl Babies story using our own characters and used some of the information from our visitors to help us with our writing.

Show and Tell next week can be either on Light and Dark, or Toys past and present.

Next Thursday Greys class will be visiting Milestones Museum of Living History and will need to be in school for 8:30am. The children will all need a packed lunch in a disposable bag. We will be travelling by minibus and will be back before 3:30pm. A letter has been sent home with details and consent form.

Have a lovely weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

Greys 8th January

Happy New Year and welcome back!

It was lovely to be all back together again and we have had lots of fun in Greys class this week.

We began our new topic of Light and Dark and investigated different light sources. We closed our eyes to see what it was like to experience complete darkness and gradually moved our hands to see the light creeping through in stages. We named sources of light that were manmade and those that were natural.

dark

In Literacy we read ‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’ by Jill Tomlinson. We all thought that Plop was rather a funny character and on Tuesday used adjectives to write a character description of him.

adjectives

 On Thursday we improved that description by using similes to describe Plop. Mrs Hawkins decided that as our descriptions were so good  we should copy them using our best handwriting for display and we can’t wait to see them on display in the classroom next week.

We have also been learning ‘The Owl and the Pussy Cat’ by Edward Lear and practised it in groups before performing it altogether. Some of us decided that we wanted to memorise the poem and have taken it home to do. We will be practising it more next week in class.

poem

Next Thursday we have Feathers and Fur visiting us and they will hopefully bring a barn owl just like Plop for us to see. Please let Mrs Hawkins know if your child has any allergies regarding birds and feathers in particular.

We found out all about why we celebrate New Year and wrote our own New Year’s resolutions which are now on display for all to see and read. They make some very interesting reading so hopefully we will all be able to keep them.

new yr res

In Maths the Year 1s have been exploring ordinal numbers…

od

and locating numbers on beaded lines and finding 1 more and 1 less than a number on a beaded line.

The Year 2s began the week using calculators for the first time to add 2 digit numbers together.

They then used beaded lines and number squares for the same concept.

In Computing we had lots of fun using a sentence maker programme to write stories and design cards.

comp[uting

In Phonics the Year 1s have been working on the different ‘a’ sounds (ay, ai, eigh, a_e, a, ey) and the Year 2s have been adding the ful and ly suffixes to words. We enjoyed playing Splat the phoneme.

Please remember that children need their PE kit in school every day. As the Common is rather muddy at present can you please ensure that your child’s trainers are kept in a separate plastic bag in their PE bags.

Homework this week is to create a picture/ fact file of an animal which would come out at night. This needs to be in School for Tuesday 12th January please.

Spellings tests next week will be on Tuesday.

On Monday we are going to the River and Rowing Museum for our workshop on Light and Dark. Children will need a packed lunch and drink. We will be travelling by minibus and will be back before the end of the school day.

Have a lovely weekend!

Greys 17th December

The end of term is finally here and what a term it’s been!

The children have come so far already this year both socially and academically. They are a truly wonderful class who make classroom life so much fun and we are all very proud of them.

This final week of term has seen some very tried but extremely excited children, but we still managed to get through a variety of activities. We looked at symmetry in Maths by creating mirror images of Christmas trees, snowmen, reindeer and crackers. We retold the story of the Nativity on story maps and then created a 4×3 grid, drew pictures of the Nativity scenes in each grid and then gave each other directions using forwards, backwards, left and right to see where our directions would take us.

We read the story of The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett and wrote letters to Santa telling him why we would make a good reindeer to pull his sleigh on Christmas Eve.

Mrs Hawkins read Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer by Robert L May to us which was written in 1939 and taught us the words to the song which was written ten years later by his brother in law. Mrs Clinkard then helped us to create some actions to the song which was lots of fun!

Riley brought in some real reindeer antlers that he had found near Greys Court. We discussed whether they were symmetrical or not and decided that they weren’t, but they were very heavy!

riley the reindeer

Carrying on with our reindeer theme we drew pictures of Rudolph on our Christmas cards.

We used salt, flour and water to make our own salt dough and then made Christmas decorations with it which we painted and glittered.

salt dough

One of the messiest activities of the week was making chocolate truffles which were extremely yummy and a HUGE thank you to the wonderful Mrs Millard for helping us to make those.

On Wednesday morning Peppard class joined us to watch Sir Tim Peake taking off live as he headed to the International Space Station. It was a great experience to see other children watching it at the same time as us and we were just as excited as they were.

spacespace rocket

On Thursday morning we made our Christingles ready for the Church service in the evening.

Greys 11th December

Greys class have had an exciting but very tiring week this week and are now on countdown to the end of term!

The performances of A Midwife Crisis were absolutely fantastic and the children were outstanding to say the least. They smiled, acted and sang their little hearts out to everyone. A huge thank you to everybody who helped to support the children, who thoroughly enjoyed being the centre of attention and displaying their talents.

In RE we learnt all about the meaning of Advent and had lots of fun making advent wreaths.

wreaths 2 wreaths

In Maths the Year 1s have been adding and subtracting 1,2,3 and 4 to and from numbers, whilst the Year 2s have been adding and subtracting 11,12,21,22 and 31 to and from 2 digit numbers.

In Literacy we wrote letters to Santa and answered questions from our Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer story.

We then wrote poems to Rudolph and made reindeer food with oats and lots of glitter to light the way for Rudolph and the other reindeer.

In Science we used the toys that we made to investigate which materials they were made form and their properties. We then wrote our results up in tables in our Science books.

Our Magic of Christmas display is now finished and will be on display in Tesco this week.

On Friday before our Christmas lunch the whole school went on a walk and had lots of fun running up and down the hill and walking through the woods building up our appetites.

Greys 4th December

Greys class and Peppard class have been practising hard for the play this week and are getting very excited about performing it to a real audience on Tuesday.

On Wednesday afternoon the whole school took part in an Art afternoon. Tesco asked us if we would like to take part in their ‘Magic of Christmas’ window display and we decided to base our display on The Nutcracker. We made snowflakes, painted pink mice and evil grey mice. We then painted our hands green to make handprints to create a Christmas tree. We can’t wait to see it on display after December 11th.

rats

We enjoyed the story so much that the following day we split into groups and acted each scene out in sequence. First of all we drew pictures and thought of key words from our scene to help us remember what had happened.

plan

This group acted out Christmas Eve where Clara is given the Nutcracker as a gift.

scene 1

Then it was the scene where Clara and the Nutcracker defeat the Mouse King and his army.

scene 21

Dylan and Isobel re-enacted the sleigh ride over the snow capped forest.

scene 2

Then it was the Land of Sweets with the dazzling dancers and the Sugar Plum fairy.

scene 4

Finally Freya and Bear took on the roles of Clara and the Nutcracker and wondered if it was all really a dream or quite simply the ‘Magic of Christmas’.

scene 5

On Friday in Big Write we wrote a recount of The Nutcracker and are looking forward to finding out who will be this week’s ‘Big Writer of the Week.’

Last week we wove some magic carpets using paper and are now weaving our own class magic carpet using a giant loom.

big weave

In Maths the Year 2s have been looking at number bonds and using them to add and subtract 2 digit numbers whilst the Year 1s have also been working on number bonds and adding and subtracting 1 to and from a 2 digit number.

In Science we split into groups and were given a material that we had to then find things made from that material and state its properties. It was lots of fun as we went on a treasure hunt around the classroom. We then shared our findings. We also labelled the toys we made with the materials we used and the properties of those materials.

In Computing we practised typing and then changing the font, size and colour.

In football we practised dribbling and passing the ball.

Show and Tell next week will be on Materials and is…

Please remember to bring in costumes for the play on Monday. Performances for Midwife in Crisis are on Tuesday 8th December at 2:30pm and 6:30pm in Greys/Peppard classrooms.

Please ensure full PE kit is in school every day.

Have a lovely weekend and please support the Peppard Stall at Henley late night shopping festival on Friday evening.

 

 

 

Greys 27th November

Another busy week for Greys class!

In Literacy we decided that we would like to learn more about The Man on the Moon story, so we made telescopes and looked for things around the classroom that we thought he might like. We then had to put them into a list and make them plural by adding s and es.

The following day we wrote invitations to him, inviting him to our own parties. We made sure that we remembered to use capital letters for places, names, day and months.

We then pretended to be the man on the moon and wrote letters to Lily accepting her invitation. We set our letters out correctly and  tried to include a question using a question mark. Some of us even used exclamation marks!

On Friday we had Big Write and wrote a recount of Mog’s Christmas Calamity by Judith Kerr. We drew story maps and then thought of words to describe how Mog might have felt at different points of the story. We also made sure that we used different time connectives to begin our sentences.

elodie storymap

In Maths the Year 1s have been adding and subtracting 1 and 2 from numbers using bead strings, number squares and cubes, whilst the Year 2s have been using number bonds to add and subtract 2 digit numbers.

Science was lots of fun this week as we got to share all of our homework. We had all made a toy out of different materials and explained why we had chosen those particular materials. We were also able to describe different properties for them. A huge thank you to all the parents who took the time to help and support the children with this task.

Freya made a very impressive dolls’ house.

freya homework

Dylan made a fabulous fort

dylan homework

and Joseph made a very exciting marble run.

joseph homework

There were lots more fantastic creations which are now on display in the classroom for all of the children to enjoy and investigate.

We also tested different types of paper to see which was the most waterproof. We began by making a prediction, then performing the experiment in groups and finally summarising what we had found out. We learnt about the importance of a fair test and how interesting it was to compare our predictions with our results.
