Weekly roundup – Infants
Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all!
I hope that you all managed to have a break over Christmas and that you and your children are well rested and raring to go for another fun packed term of learning.
The new term kicked off for teachers on Tuesday and we had a packed agenda looking at Leadership, Oracy and Science. Mr Beament took lots of pictures and you can see pictures of us hard at work here.
On Wednesday, I led a welcome to the term assembly where we talked about setting goals alongside our Caring Code.
The children shared lots of goals and here are just a few! Learning to swim, getting better at reading, helping the climate and looking after the environment. We then made links between our goals and our Caring Code. We looked at each one in turn and what it means to us and this is what they shared during our discussion.
We show we care – Caring about our friends and for each other, caring about our resources in our classrooms, helping someone if they are feeling sad.
We show respect – Listening carefully to each other, understanding that people may have differing opinions, remembering our manners, looking after our school environment.
We do our best – Being ready to learn, don’t give up (keeping trying even if something is tricky), not worrying if we get something wrong, having a go by ourselves before asking a teacher (3B4me) feeling proud, presentation.
Other news this week –
In nursery the children have been sharing their news from the Christmas break.
Ivy said, ‘I’ve got lots of sparkly things. I love sparkle.’ Emmy said, ‘I have bunny ears!’ Murphy said, ‘My mummy and daddy are Santa’s helpers, they are elves!’
Lara also found a wasps nest near her home and brought it in to look at with the children. It stimulated lots of questions and conversation
David said, ‘Look! It’s a bee hive, bees live there.’
In reception the children have just discovered that their new Discovery plan is At the Museum! We will find out next week more about there learning!
In KS1 the children’s Discovery plan is The Victorians
They have already posed some interesting questions having looked at a selection of pictures as a starting point.
Where did she live? Joe
What age did they work in the mines? Kiko
What type of job did he do? Frank
What was life like during those times? Alivia
How long ago was the Victorian times? Grace
What did they wear? Bea
Why are all the photographs in black and white? Charlie
Fantastic questions! I look forward to finding out the answers as the children discover more about this period in history and it captures their imaginations.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
