making the Easter Garden for the church
We are very excited to have ducklings in school. We began with 6 eggs and all 6 hatched - in order: Bob (named by Sharon); Fred (named by Mrs Preston); Chip (named by Mr King); Dave (named by Miss Trett); Twiglet (named by Mrs Bocking) and Wiggy (named by Mr Bocking after the dog we walk!)
We are having a very exciting time with them!
We wrote poems today - see below
Can you guess what we are describing?
doing the splits on the plastic cloth!
Being very gentle with them
We all loved it!

new life at Easter
Mothers' Day cards
keeping calm and relaxed
determined to learn!
Everyone has been back this week. It has been lovely to see everyone. We are all getting used to working again.
In maths we are doing fractions which has been fun and in grammar we are doing the progressive tense which sounded hard but is really easy. It is like "We were jumping" or "I am writing".
In English, we are writing the Easter story because we're not in school at Easter to do it on the right days.
We had a new PE coach and that was fun.
We have learnt to do videos for our Mothers' Day presentation but it didn't quite work for everyone which was sad for some people when theirs isn't on there.
Lots of our seeds are growing which is exciting.
Its been nice to see our friends and play with them so we're glad to be back.
wb 8th March 2021
St David's Day work and cooking
We used natural materials in DT
We are learning about the Easter story. On Palm Sunday when Jesus went to Jerusalem on a donkey, everyone waved palm leaves
The last supper - feet washing
Jesus shared bread and wine to remember his body and blood
When people have communion in church, they remember this story
On Good Friday, Jesus was crucified
The cross on the hot cross bun reminds us that Jesus died on the cross
We have done writing and videos for our mums for Mothers' day
In English last week, we wrote letters - we just had some replies
We all got palm crosses to take home
Our frogs are back -we have frog spawn!
We have spent the week learning about the plant life cycle
Can you see the pollen?
We have planted sunflower seeds, runner beans, nasturtiums and pumpkins
We have also planted a pot of bird seed and apple and pear seeds from our fruit at snack time
We have planted the bottom of an onion to see if it grows, and put bits of rosemary in water to see if they grow
We learnt the golden rule "Love others as you love yourself" that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. We made friendship bracelets
World Book Day
We did loads of activities. We were doing maths from books here - "I am sorting out the Little Miss and tallying"
"I have counted all the animals and now I'm drawing a block graph"
We wrote a class story about our bean. M scribed for us.
We love books!

Mrs Bocking in a snow drift
We filled our tubs with snow, right to the top. We predicted the snow would melt into water
As it melted, the snow got smaller
Wow! All the snow had melted and turned to water - but there was MUCH less water than snow.
And the water we put in tubs outside is now ice. It must be below zero which is when water freezes.
