The great Gruffalo bake off

This week we have been looking at recipes in English and applying our knowledge of measurement from maths.
We have created our own recipe for ‘dinosaur egg nests’ and this afternoon we tested out our recipes to make sure we had included everything!
Not only have the children created a fantastic recipe, but were incredibly sensible and worked great in their teams to make the nests.
We even managed to get some of them to wash and dry the pots!
Well done Gruffalos, you are all star bakers.

Volcanic eruption!

The children have created some excellent homework for our dinosaur topic including masks, stories and even volcano models!
Today, we learnt how dinosaurs are thought to become extinct. The children loved watching clips of real volcanos exploding and the lava running down.
We took the volcano model outside so we could create our own eruption! There was quite a bit of excitement as the lava started to appear.

Dinosaur dig!

To begin our dinosaur topic, we had a dinosaur dig!
The children spent the day becoming palentologists, uncover lots of wonderful things and engaging with the new topic.

Moon Zoom homework

Please feel free to follow the children's interests if there isn't an activity on there which inspires them.

Thank you

Superhero homework

Attached is the homework sheet for this half term's topic.
Please complete the highlighted task by Friday 29th September so we can share our heroes as a class.
Please also choose one other task, which is to be completed by Friday 13th October.
Thank you, Mrs Campbell.

Launching our Superheroes topic

On Tuesday 12th September, we launched our Superheroes topic by dressing as our favourite heroes. The children looked fantastic and completed many superhero challenges throughout the day! We are really excited for this topic as we discuss real-life heroes, write our own stories and design our own superhero.
The Gruffalos have worked incredibly hard this week and this is just the start of the term!

Becoming the Gruffalos!

In the first exciting week of Year 1, we became the Gruffalos. We talked about what it means to be a team, what year 1 would include and enjoyed some activities based around the Gruffalo story. The children made some masks of the main characters from the story and acted out the story in groups. We took our learning even further by using the orchard to create the Gruffalo cave from the Gruffalo's Child story. The children have been so enthusiastic about the story and have given the activities their all.

Young Leaders Award Morning

Well done to our Young Leaders! Today they completed their awards and received their certificates during our Young Leaders Coffee Morning. It was lovely to see so many parents and family members at the event and we were very honoured to have Rozy Brian, a representative of the Youth Trust, to come and present the certificates.

Le Café Français

On Tuesday, the Kingfishers had the chance to practice their French skills in our French Cafe. They took turns to order their chosen foods by speaking only French, and to take and serve orders for their friends. They had the chance to try baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolate, brie, camembert.....and snails! Some of the children were feeling very adventurous, and Mrs Grant too!
Well done Kingfishers...Très bien!
