A big well done to Daisy in Year 3 for writing this amazing poem, based on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’, in her own time.

The Frog & The Panda
The Frog and the Panda went to Spain
On a crystal blue bike
They took a rag in a dirty old bag
Along with a bunny called Mike
The panda looked down to the ground below
And hummed to a yellow harmonica
“Oh my frog, my frog”
“Why is your last name Veronica?”
“Why is your last name Veronica?”

Frog said to Pandy “You’re sweet like candy!”
How beautiful you wicker
All along I have said oh let us be wed
But what shall we do for a vicar?
They travelled afar without a car
To the mountains where purple trees grow
And up in the cloud a vicar stood proud
With his feet deep in the snow
The snow
The snow
With his feet deep in the snow

“Hey Vicar are you able to wed this couple?”

Frog said “Ok, ok”
So marry they did by the vicar named Sid
Everyone was happy that day
They feasted on cake that took an hour to bake
Which they ate with their fingers and thumbs
And side by side they really did glide
They grooved with all their chums
Their chums
Their chums
They grooved with all their chums

Reception Year News

What have we been learning about in Year R this week?

This week the children have been learning about the story ‘Billy’s Bucket’. They have got to know the story very well and have been creating their own story maps to help them remember the order of the story.

As part of our Billy’s Bucket work the children have been completing some writing about what they can see inside the bucket. In the story Billy could see lots of different sea creatures inside his bucket. The children all had their own ideas of what they might see inside their bucket and wrote these down on to some water drops. These were then put together to create a wonderful display in the classroom (see photo).

In Maths the children have been learning all about subtraction. They have been creating their own first, then, now stories e.g. first there were 10 green bottles, then 4 were taken away and now I have 6 green bottles. The children worked out some simple subtraction sums and used objects to help them work out the answers.

Next week:

We will be learning about the story ‘The Dot’ linked to our current PSHE them of ‘Being our Best’. ‘The Dot’ is about a child who is convinced she can’t draw. Her teacher encourages her to begin with a single dot and the child’s creativity takes off. The children will discuss the importance if ‘not giving up’ and will also have the opportunity to create their very own ‘dot’ picture.

In Maths the children will be learning about making new shapes and exploring what shapes we can make using different shapes e.g. 2 right angled triangles put together to make a square shape.

Towards the end of the week the children will be learning about and completing activities linked to the King’s coronation. The week will end with the children enjoying a picnic with the whole school and the parents will be invited into school to see their art work at 2.30pm on Friday.

Have a lovely weekend.
