Auklet have been busy with some new additions to the class this week! The children have been very lucky to watch a few chicks hatching.
West End Theatre in Schools! The story of the Lorax
WOW! Our Owl Visitors were amazing! We met Winston (a barn owl), Hector (a tawny owl) and Frank (a northern-white faced owl from Africa). Alan and Jo told us lots of great facts about all our new owl friends. Did you know that barn owls are the quietest flying owl in the world? The children put this to the test by lying down and having one fly over them, listening really carefully for a noise!
Outside Learning Day! Auklet class had a busy day this week! We started the day by going on a welly walk, we then did some shared learning with our friends from Eagle class. Then in the afternoon, we built habitats for animals and explored the outside by finding different objects depending on the adjective used e.g Can you find something smooth?
Please see the document below which details all the things Auklet class will be doing during Focus Week.
This week we had two visitors from the Frome Bee Association. They shared with us lots of facts about bees, looked at different types of honey, showed us the inside of a bee hive and the children helped build a honeycomb slice from foam tiles. Did you know that bees have 5 eyes? Thank you to Melanie and Ewan for expanding out Literacy learning of Rosie's Walk.
Auklet have been busy learning their Talk4Writing story, Rosie's Walk! We drew a story map together and added in our own actions to re-tell the story. Why don't you ask your child to re-tell the story?
Auklet Class have loved their first full week of school!
Come and Play session!
Friday afternoon saw lots of our lovely parents, grandparents and younger siblings come to school and get busy with their children. We had a go at making our own bird feeder, continue our painting in the style of Damien Hirst, planting outside in the flower beds, decorating biscuits, sharing our learning journals and all round fun! We are very grateful to have such supportive families and thank you so much for coming to share the afternoon with us.
This half term our story is 'Jasper's Beanstalk'. We have begun our learning by looking at the main character, Jasper! Everybody then painted their very own Jasper and helped stick on pieces of tissue paper to make a massive collage Jasper and his beanstalk. We think they look great.
