Arram Class

 

10 July 2017

This week we have been looking after our chicks that hatched last week. We have been feeding them and checking they have enough water. Today we got to hold some of the chicks.

Yesterday it was Sports Day. Our class was split into four teams, Great Britain, Bulgaria, Poland and Czech Republic. Each child took part in two races for their team, these were: an egg and spoon race, a running race, a huddles race and a sack race.

Arram class planted some beans before the half term holidays. We planted the beans in soil and watered it. We put them in our outdoor area so they could get some sun over the holidays. When we returned to school, we were happy to see that some of the beans had grown.

Last week we had our Reception Class Weddings. In the morning we had a Christian Wedding and in the afternoon we had a Hindu Wedding. The children thoroughly enjoyed playing their different parts. Above are some photos taken by our photographer Joshua.

There have been lots of challenges in Arram Class this week. The children completed the domino doubling challenge where they had to find all of the domino doubles and then match them to their answers.

The children also loved the pizza halving challenge. They read the halving problem cards and used the pizza toppings to answer questions such as; 'Half of 8 salami slices and half of 10 mushrooms'.

In our farm area we had a key word challenge; the children had to read sentences and choose from a selection of key words to fill in the blanks. Afterwards the children read the sentences to check they made sense.

We had lots of contenders for our 'Challenge Champion' certificate!

Over the past few weeks in Arram class we have been making Monster and Alien puppets. We started off by drawing around our hands, leaving extra space so our hands would fit into the puppet once it was sewn. Then we chose the colour of felt we would like. Our hand templates were used as a pattern to cut out two pieces of felt. We decided how many eyes our aliens and monsters should have, and sewed the right number of buttons on the front. Then we started stitching the front and back of the puppet together. Once the puppet was sewn, we added embellishments like ribbons, feathers and fluffy fabric to make it unique and alien-looking.

This week in Arram class we have been painting aliens and monsters. First we read the descriptions of the aliens and monsters. The descriptions told us how many horns or eyes it had. Then we followed the descriptions to paint our aliens and monsters.

Today in Arram class we dressed up as our favourite book characters for World Book Day. We enjoyed lots of different activities such as making bookmarks, going on a book hunt and sharing our favourite stories with each other.

In Arram class this week we have been practising log rolls in PE. The children had to try to keep their bodies, arms and legs straight while rolling along the mat. They watched and listened carefully as we explained what they should do. The children had a few turns each, keeping as straight as possible. It's quite tricky but they tried really hard and improved with each attempt.

This week in Arram class we have been learning about Chinese New Year. The children have been writing their names in Chinese by tracing over the Chinese characters using a fine brush and ink.

Things have turned "piratey" this week in Arram Class in preparation for our Pirate Day on Friday.  These pirates are stranded and are writing messages to put in a bottle in the hope that someone will rescue them!  Look at their fantastic writing!

We were sooooooo proud of all our Reception children this week.  We were treated to their fantastic singing, dancing and speaking as they performed "Shine Star, Shine" for us.

   

   

*Proud teachers and proud parents.*

Arram Class have been making paper baubles this week to hang on their Christmas tree.  They have been finding out how single and double hole punches work, and using them independently to make holes.  They then practised their scissor skills to cut lengths of wool, and finally practised their fine motor control and bilateral coordination (using both hands together) to thread wool through their baubles.  Look at the concentration on those faces!
