Length and height - This week Reception have been busy using blocks and rulers to measure different items from around the classroom.

10s 10s 10s! Our reception children have loved counting in 10s this week! They have been bundling straws into 10s and using the numicon and dienes to help count.

The children have been loving our topic this half term! We have painted the Queen, made our own castles and acted out the enemy attacking the castle in our role-play area!

Repeating patterns!

Our latest Talk For Writing Actions! The children have been enjoying using these in our story this half term, How to Catch a Star!

Addition and Subtraction - Auklet have been using lots of different resources to answer some tricky questions!

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!

PE this week had Auklet using a racket to try and flip a bean bag and then to try and control a ball. We slid it across the floor and tried to hit it too. Great perseverance this week Auklet

This week's challenge at the Junk Modelling table was to make a home for the Owl Babies!

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?

2D Shapes! Auklet enjoyed moving their bodies to try and create 2D shapes in the hall.

Auklet loved joining Barn Owl Class with our Bonfire Night Craft! We had lots of different firework pictures!

Auklet's Autumn Inspired Focus Week - Welly walk, Harvest Festival at the Church, Pumpkin drawing, leaf printing, hedgehog building, Autumn spotting, pumpkin biscuit making

FOCUS WEEK

Please see the document below which details all the things Auklet class will be doing during Focus Week. 

Thank you to Michaela for visiting us from the Bruton Dental Practice! The children loved learning about how to brush their teeth properly, how long they should brush them for and some healthy and unhealthy choices for snack.

Auklet love counting with all kinds of objects and manipulatives. We've been matching numeral and quantity this week.

Colour mixing! The children have been busy painting their hands and mixing with a different friend. The children were amazed to see the colour change happen before their eyes. What great messy fun!

Auklet's writing is AMAZING! The grown ups are blown away every day :)

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.

Something Special - Auklet Class have been showing off their 'special something' to the class, explaining why it is so precious to them.

Last year's Auklet class planted a courgette plant and over the summer it grew amazingly! The new Auklet children helped chop and peel the courgette and other vegetables to make a tasty veg soup. The children then had it for their afternoon snack, healthy and delicious!

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?

Sports Day!

Healthy body, healthy mind (Science week!) Auklet were busy doing some exercises outside. They then discussed how this changed their heart rate!

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.

Auklet had a wonderful trip to Mill on the Brue! We enjoyed looking at the vegetable that they grow and put into our tasty hot school dinners! Thank you to the team for showing us around and answering lots of questions, and a thank you to our lovely parent helpers.
