A great week in Caterpillars. We had a lovely time at the Eid celebration on Monday. What a feast! Thank you to all of the families who helped organise it.
On Tuesday, it was the Musical Extravaganza.... and an extravaganza it was! Some fabulous performances from children and parents. There were even a few Caterpillars on the stage it various points throughout the evening.
A week like this just sums up our Walkley family. Thank you everyone for your continued support.
In the classroom, we have had a visit from the Big Bad Wolf!!! He has come to try to blow our houses down.
In Maths, we have been using Base 10 to make teen numbers. The children really enjoyed being able to see a block of ten and then count on.
Well done everyone!
The 3 Little Pigs
We read the story of the 3 Little Pigs. WE talked about the Big Bad Wolf and which materials were easier for him to blow away. We looked at a selection of materials and objects and made predictions about which could be 'blown away.' We then had a go at being the big bad wolf. We 'huffed and puffed' but did they blow away?
We have had a fantastic first week back. We have introduced our topic by looking at the amazing Learning Logs which have been completed over the holiday. Well done everyone... we have seem some amazing creations!
This term, we are looking at the theme of 'Can We Build It?'. We have started this week by looking at many different versions of 'The Three Little Pigs'. We have discussed different types of materials and thought about how to build a stable house.
In our groups, we have been building houses made of items found around the classroom. The children have been very imaginative and used chairs, tires and lots of cement. I have been very impressed with their problem solving and group work.
We hope our families had a lovely time celebrating Eid together. We are really looking forward to our school celebration after school on Monday. On Tuesday, it is Proms on the Playground. This is another great opportunity to celebrate what a fantastic school we are.
Thanks for a great week.
Honey on Toast
We had a very special delivery of a real honeycomb from one of the Year 1 parents.
After learning about bees in our previous topic it was so exciting to see. The smell was delicious and it looked amazing. What better thing for us to do but have an afternoon of making and eating honey on toast. A big thumbs up from all the Caterpillars!
