Willow class have been busy practising the retelling of the story, The Enormous Turnip. I am so pleased at how well the Foundation Stage children have remembered the story events and using story language. Well done also to the Year 1 children have taken on the challenges of writing parts of the story. We hope to retell the story to Ullesthorpe pre-school next week!
People Who Help Us
The children have been enjoying pretending to be doctors, nurses and paramedics in our new roleplay hospital. We have started learning about people who help us in the community. We hope to have some visitors in school to tell us about their helping roles. So if you or anyone you know would be willing to come and have a short chat to Willow Class about their job and how they help others please let us know.
Our school value this week has been that of friendship and we have been celebrating acts of friendship during the school day. The child even made friendship crowns for each other.
Willow class are planning to create a sensory garden in the outdoor area. If you have any ideas to contribute or spare plants at home that could be added, (herbs would be ideal), these would be gratefully received.
Well done to the children who have completed their ‘Eat them to Defeat Them’ vegetable eating challenge.
In Maple class we have been very busy!
In English, we have definitely been persevering! The children have all worked so hard to make their own story books based on our focus text ‘The King’s Birthday suit’. The final products look fantastic and some children have even read their stories to Willow class as story time.
We have been busy looking at the Christian Creation story in RE. As a class, we made a piece of art for each day of the story and then put them in order to show the whole story.
In maths, we have been doing lots of work on greater than, less than and equal to and using the symbols for these. The children had a great time exploring these and making different number sentences.
Birch Class has had another busy month. We have been learning more about the Ancient Egyptians, including finding out about mummification. We have tried “mummifying” an apple and some tomatoes and can’t wait to see what happens to them! In art we have made Egyptian sunset pictures and clay cartouches with our names in hieroglyphs.
September was an exciting month as we were finally able to go to Lutterworth Pool and start our swimming lessons! We have also started our drumming lessons and we are working hard on improving our rhythm and timing.
Last week we also had a visit from the Life Education Van who came and worked with us on 'Good to be Me' discussion.
Our wonderful Egyptian sunset pictures!
Oak Class have been exploring forces in Science this term. They have shown some brilliant investigation skills when testing how surface area and air resistance impact the rate at which objects fall. We saw some brilliant cooperation and communication skills as the children worked together to design and carry out their tests.
The KS2 dodgeball club has proved very popular and the children have shown some great initiative in setting up their own games during PE. We have seen some fantastic fundamental movement skills in action with great coordination as we throw and agility and balance as we dodge. There have also been some fantastic examples of sportsmanship with high fives, words of encouragement and building each other up!
Coram Life Visit
We have had Dominique from the Coram Life team visit us this term and explored the theme of Friendship. Oak Class were happy to see an old friend in Harold the Giraffe and also showed a wonderful level of maturity and respect when discussing their thoughts, feelings and actions.
Eat Them To Defeat Them
Last month we sent home “Eat Them To Defeat Them” charts and stickers to encourage the children to eat more fruit and vegetables and be more adventurous in trying new foods. We have already had children bring their completed charts back - well done to all of you! Everyone else - don’t forget to have a go at eating more fruit and vegetables or trying new ones and bring your chart back to school when you have completed it.
We will now be celebrating our Harvest service in school, not at the Congregational Church as originally advised. As part of our Harvest celebrations we will be collecting food for the Lutterworth and Villages Foodbank. We shall be gathering donations from Monday 4th October until Friday 8th October. Any donation can be brought into school and left in the main reception entrance.
The list below gives us some guidance as to the sorts of foods that would be of most help for the Lutterworth branch.
