What a busy week! We have enjoyed a week packed full of fun! The children have had a wonderful time exploring the learning areas within our classroom. There have been trips to the coffee shop, comedy shows, tooth extractions at the dentist and reading by the fire. The children have made signs for their areas, created posters, diaries for appointments and tickets for the shows. I can’t wait to see what adventures we will go on next week!
Thanks for a wonderful week, Meadowsfoot!
It has been another busy week in Meadowsfoot and as always we have had lots of fun!
On Monday, we enjoyed making cheese scones with Mrs Readey. We worked in groups to weigh, mix and bake our scones. Mrs Watson was very impressed with our washing up skills! On Tuesday, we investigated different materials and described their properties. Next week, we are excited to set to work designing new boots for Father Christmas.
Well done for a wonderful week, Meadowsfoot! I cant wait for even more fun next week!
Week Ending 13th November 2020
This week, the children spent Wednesday afternoon as town planners and worked hard to rebuild the city of London after the Great Fire in 1666. The children decided to use bricks for building instead of wood and build fire stations across the city to save the city from any further disasters. The children were also wise to widen the streets to give people more room.
Week Ending 6th November 2020
This week, we have come to the end of our Traditional Tales unit. We have enjoyed retelling lots of tales and can now use the word 'and' to join clauses together. On Thursday, we wrote our very own class book of mixed up fairy tales. In maths, we have used the cherry model to find parts of whole numbers to 4 and 10 and had a go at learning songs to help us remember the pairs of numbers.
Welcome to the Autumn Term
This term is an exciting one as we get to know our new friends and teachers! We have lots of exciting activities to look forward to and have lots of time to play and learn!
In English, we will read a selection of traditional tales such as Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. We will create story maps, puppets, actions and drawings to help us retell stories. We will learn how to use end punctuation and capital letters correctly to write simple sentences. Each day, we will take part in phonic activities with our teachers to learn new letter sounds and tricky words to help us with our reading. We will enjoy reading with our friends and teachers and talk about what we have read.
In Maths, we will learn about numbers to 100. We will use songs, actions, rhymes and resources to count forwards and backwards. We will recognise the numbers one more and one less than a given number and begin to represent numbers in lots of different ways. We will talk about our understanding and solve problems.
In History, we will learn about The Great Fire of London. We will learn where, why and why the fire started and how London has changed since the fire. We will learn about Samuel Pepys and find out why he is an important figure when learning about the fire. At the end of our topic, we will create our own Great Fire on London Museum.
In Science, we are going to learn all about autumn! We will observe and talk about the weather and take part in lots of autumn themed activities!
