When we return to school after May Half Term, our topic will be 'Once Upon a Time'. In the first week of term our focus text will be 'The Three Little Pigs'. I would like you this week to think about 2D shapes and use these to design a house. There are 3 steps I would like you to follow:

1. Go on a shape hunt around your house, what 2D shapes can you find? Can you describe these shapes using the correct vocabulary, sides and corners (verticies). 

2. Design a house that you think the Big Bad Wolf will not be able to 'huff and puff and blow down'. 

3. Label the shapes you have used or colour each of the shapes in the same colour (e.g. all triangles coloured in red).

SSM: 

1. Select 5 containers of different sizes (volumes). Using a cup, measure how many cups of water each of these containers hold. Use the same cup for each container so the measure is accurate (try and fill to roughly the same level in the cup if you can). Can you order the containers from that which holds the greatest volume of water, to that which holds the least. Extra Challenge: Use a different cup to measure, and order the cups in the same way.

2. Using some scales which you have at home (balancing scales would be ideal if you have them), can you find 2 objects that you think are heavy and 2 you think are light. Make a prediction about which object will be the heaviest and which will be the lightest. With grown-up support, weigh the objects and see if your prediction was correct. Can you order the objects from heaviest to lightest? Extra Challenge: Ask you grown-up to find an additional object or two and repeat activity, making a predicition by looking at the objects, not feeling.

Is there anything you notice that is the same about the coins? Or anything that is different about the coins? If you have coins from different currancies you could also compare these to British Sterling. 

2. Using any toys at home, ask your grown up to build you 3 towers of different heights, you can then place these in order from shortest to tallest. Extra challenge: If the toys do not naturally connect (like lego/ duplo etc.) see what the tallest tower is you can make balancing the toys on top of each other.

Covid-19 Self-Isolation

COVID-19: Home Learning

During these uncertain times, and in the knowledge many of us are/ will be self-isolating we have created a pack for your child for home learning. The ideas for work they could complete at home relate to this terms topic ' Real Life Superheroes' and some activities in preparation for the new topic in Summer 1 ' Spring Into Life'.  This pack is being sent home today, 17th March 2020, and distributed to those of you already in self-isolation. We have also sent home 2 reading books with your child today if they were in school. 

In the event of a nationwide 'lock down', I will post some activities to this page and some useful links if you would like to find any home learning resources yourself. Many educational resource companies are offering free acces for home learning. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to add a comment below and I will do my best to answer them. 

At this time, I would like to wish you all well and to keep safe and for those that are already poorly, I wish you a speedy recovery.

Thank you for you ongoing help and support,

Miss Franklin

Early Years Curriculum

|

The Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is split into 7 areas, 3 prime and 4 specific.

Prime Areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development

(These are the areas which are worked on first to build a good basis for all children to build on.)

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design

(These areas are then worked on to develop the children's learning further.)

Characteristics of Effective Learning

|

CoEL

The Characteristics of Effective Learning (CoEL) are a vital part of the EYFS curriculum. The CoEL cover the different ways in which children learn. 

In class we link each of the 9 CoEL styles of learning to a Mr Men or Little Miss. We do this to support the children in understanding how they each individually learn. When we have observed a child showing us a particular style of learing we give them a sticker with the corresponding character and they move their face on our CoEL board in the classroom. 

Each of the 9 styles of learning fall under three main catergories:

Playing and Exploring

  • Finding out and exploring (Mr Nosey)
  • Playing with what they know (Little Miss Curious)
  • Being willing to 'have a go' (Mr Brave)

Active Learning

  • Being involved and concentrating (Mr Busy)
  • Keeping on trying (Mr Bump)
  • Enjoying achieveing what they set out to do (Mr Happy)

Creating and Thinking Critically

  • Having their own ideas (Mr Clever)
  • Making links (Little Miss Brainy)
  • Choosing ways to do things (Mr Adventure)

 

Key Workers

|

Key Workers

Your child has been allocated a key worker. This adult will be your main contact within school as well as the person who will keep you up to date with their progress.

We operate an open door policy and we are happy to speak to any parents that wish to speak to us. This is better after school, but if it is something that may affect your child during the school day, then we will be happy to listen in the mornings.

What to expect, when?

This is a parent’s guide to the EYFS to help parents and carers find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS.

We have two copies in school to loan out. If you would like to borrow this guide for a week and have a read at home, please speak to a member of the EYFS team.

Owl Babies

|

Twit Twoo

We had a visit from Rhiannan from the SMJ Falconry Centre on Wednesday.

She brought in 2 Owls, Midge and JD, a Kestral named Pippin and a Peregrin Falcon named Jeff. We learnt all about each bird. 

Some amazing facts we learnt:

  • Owls have coloured eyes to match when they are awake/ active. Nocturnal owls have brown eyes, while yellow eyes means the owl comes out during the day and orange eyes means an owl comes out at dawn and dusk. 
  • Owl's are sick all the time because they eat their food whole. They vomit up pellets which contain the animals fur and bones. 
  • Owl feathers have a special coating which protects them from the rain.
  • Peregrin Falcon's are faster than Cheetahs, able to dive at 240mph.
  • Kestrels hover above their food and are able to see Mouse wee from the sky. 
  • Owls can hear our hearts beating.

Diwali

We have been learning all about the Hindu 'Festival of Lights' called Diwali this week. We read the story of Rama and Sita, created our own Rangoli Patterns in the outside classroom and made Clay Divas, which we lit at the end of the day to guide our way home on Thursday, just like they did for Rama and Sita in the story. Here are some photos from our week learning about Diwali:

Autumn Walk

Today, November 14th 2019, all the children from Red Class went on a hunt to Thompson Park to look for signs of Autumn. 

"We saw red, yellow, orange and brown leaves." - Hassan

"Looked at red berries. Not touch them as they will make you very sick." - Ismail

"Mallards have green heads in they are boys and brown if they are girls." - Amiyaah

"We played in the park" - Mackenzie. 

"We kicked the leaves in the air like rain." - Harvey

"I saw a squirrel climbing a tree, it was brown and grey." - Eesa

When we got back to school we all had hot chocolate to warm up.

Sea Life Centre

Sea Life Centre: Trafford, Manchester

We wrote a recount of our trip as a class:

First thing in the morning we went to the toilet and put on our high visibility jackets. We all got on the bus and went to Sea Life Centre Manchester. We all had a group picture and then drew our pictures of sea animals. Next, we had a yummy lunch of sandwiches, water, an orange and a chocolate biscuit. Then we went exploring…

First, we saw a pufferfish with silver spikes. We saw small Jellyfish and we changed the colour of the water; red, green, blue, yellow, white, and the Jellyfish glowed the different colours.

The octopus was hiding in the helmet, but he poked some tentacles out to say “Hello!”. We got to see a Tiger Shark jaw and touch the teeth. Then we saw ‘Nemo’ and ‘Dory’ and crawled under the narrow tunnel. The Bamboo Shark swam past us and the Turtles and Black Tip Reef Shark swam over the top of us! The Lionfish and Angel fish were together. We warmed up the Turtle egg to see if it was a boy or a girl. We saw a snake, sssssssssss.

In ‘Sting Ray Bay’ we saw a Blue Spotted Ray and Sting Rays the cheeky Pufferfish was sticking its tongue out at us! We all had the chance to stroke a Starfish, it felt bumpy, soft and squishy. Finally, we saw some more Jellyfish and a HUGE Spider Crab. We got back on the bus and most of us fell asleep all the way back to school.

Pets at Home

Pets at Home

Sadly one of our class fish has recently died. As we are learning about 'Under the Sea' this seemed like a good opportunity to go and buy some more fish. On Thursday afternoon we went to 'Pets at Home' in Burnley. We bought two new goldfish, 2 snails and 2 new plants for the tank. We also bought some more food for the fish. While we were there we said a quick 'Hello!' to the other furry animals. 

'We went to get some snails and fishies because we went and buyed them.' - Tara

'We went to the pet shop, so we can buy some fishes and snails. The snails will eat all the dirt the fish make.' - Rayyaan

Pancake Day

Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)

We made pancakes together as a class. First we measured out the ingredients. Then we mixed the Flour, Eggs and Milk together to make batter. After the batter was made we cooked the pancakes. Finally we topped them in Sugar and Lemon Juice and ate them! Most of us thought they were very yummy!

Police Officer Visit

|

PC Paul Visit

PC Paul came to visit us today and we have an AMAZING afternoon!

PC Paul has been with the Police Force for 19 years, working with the Riot Police and now as a Town Police Officer in Burnley. He explained to us how he helps us and talked through all the equipment he carries with him when out and about. We all got to try on the different equipment he had brought in.

After this we went out to the Police Car and saw the lights flashing and we all had a turn turning the sirens on... they are very loud! When we came back inside PC Paul "arrested" Miss Franklin for eating Pizza for dinner - not a healthy choice! A few of us then tried on the handcuffs, surprisingly heavy!

What a fantastic afternoon. Thank you, PC Paul!
