Week beginning 22nd March

Friday 26th March

What a fun end to a great half term!

This week we have been learning all about the Easter Story and why Easter is celebrated. The children worked their socks off to produce some fantastic writing, using spaces between their words, forming their letters carefully, and using 'and' in their sentences. laugh 


In Maths we have been practising adding equal amounts of objects, such as doubling a number and repeating addition work such as 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 20! The children have been working hard in groups, and on their own too. 


We enjoyed our own Victoria Park Infants' World Book Day and loved talking about our favourite stories and inspiring each other to read different books. We were also very lucky to have Miss Myles as our mystery guest reader! 

We had a go at using the instruments to play along to an African song called ‘ Che che koolay’ The link is below if you would like to learn it at home.

Che Che Koolay ~An Orff Arrangement~

Che Che Koolay, also known as 'Kye Kye Kule', is a wonderful repeat-after-me song that comes from Ghana, Africa. The lyrics to Che Che Koolay are:Che Che Koo...

As well as beginning to learn about half of a number,  we also looked at halves of  shapes. We cut the shapes in half and made some lovely patterns and pictures.

We were lucky to have lovely weather for our Easter Egg Hunt too!

Then on Friday in assembly, we found out that our class had found the most eggs and were the winners! All the children in 1C received an Easter egg as a prize. Everyone was thrilled 😁 
We had special treats to end the term . Everyone had a bash at the piñata. After lots of hits it eventually it broke open ,to reveal sweets for everyone and there was great excitement all round .
We had a calm and relaxing end to the day with a lovely cup of hot chocolate while watching ‘ The snail and the whale’ .

We hope you have a fun Easter break and we will see you, raring to go with a new topic on Monday 12th April. Fingers crossed for some more sunshine in the coming weeks! laugh

Take care superstars, lots of love,
