Our trip to Audley End Miniature Railway!

We had the most wonderful time at Audley End. The children were beautifully behaved and represent the school beautifully! I am sure the children have told you all about it so here are some pictures to look at too... 

Pirate day!

We had so much fun! We didn't have any treasure so we went hunting for mini-beasts instead...

Eric Carle week

We had so much fun during Eric Carle week. We were all very creative and we got very mucky! We painted, printed, scraped, stamped, finger painted and so much more. Have a look at some of the pictures of the week below and feel free to come and look at our amazing corridor display.

The book we were looking at all week was called 'The mixed up chameleon' have a watch...

In Science we were learning about healthy eating so we decided to make our own healthy snacks! We each made a fruit kebab and we really enjoyed eating them!! They were delicious, and good for our bodies. Have a look at some of our pictures...

World Book Day!

We had a fantastic time celebrating World Book Day. Mr McIntyre read us a brilliant story, we shared a book with the Year 5 children and we enjoyed a nice cup of hot chocolate. Not to mention the great pyjamas we all wore! Here are some pictures of our day...

Week beginning 27/2/17 we are learning…

Literacy: We are getting to know our new story ‘How the robin has a red breast’. Read the story below. We are learning what a ‘fable’ is and comparing them to fairy tales. Our focus is ‘story openers’ – how many different story openers can you spot in your stories at home?

Maths: We are still looking at 3D shapes and becoming familiar with their properties. We are also looking at positional and directional language.

Topic/science: Our peas are growing! This week we will be looking at plants we can eat and looking at different plants that grow in our gardens. We will be recording the growth of our peas and checking on our cress experiments and seeing if our predictions are correct.

Phonics: This term's focus for each group is...

 

Ants – set 1 sounds. Practicing to read and write them in simple words.

Ladybirds – beginning of set 2 sounds. Practicing to read and write them.

Moths - set 2 sounds. Practicing to read and write them.

Beetles - set 2 and set 3 sounds. Practicing to read and write them.

Spiders - set 3 sounds. Practicing to read and write them.

Below is a document to all the sounds we practice. You can use this at home to help your children practice. We understand that they can be confusing to pronounce so I have added a link to a video demonstrating how to pronounce each sound.

Our New story - How the robin has a red breast.

We had a fantastic time seeing the live action adaption of Julian Donaldson's Room on the Broom at Hertford Theatre. The children enjoyed themselves so much and they were very grown up and a perfect representation of Holwell Primary School.
