Red Class go on a Bear Hunt

This week, we have been learning the Bear Hunt story. Every day, we recreated a different experience form the book and we made a page each day for our own Bear Hunt books.

On Monday, we made wind, we described it using all our sense, we drew ourselves on a windy day and wrote lots of windy words.

On Tuesday, we went for a splash. We dipped our fingers in bowls of water, we described it using all our sense. Then, we drew ourselves splashing in the river and wrote lots of wet words.

On Wednesday, we made mud, it was a messy day! We squelched our mud and drew ourselves squelching and squerching.

Brrrrr on Thursday, it was icy. We drew ourselves sliding and gliding and wrote some of our fantastic icy descriptive words.

On Friday we got cosy and warm, as we went into the bear’s cave.

In maths this week we had a pancake race, we counted the flaps of the fan and raced the pancakes across the floor. We shared objects fairly between two and then three toys. We made binoculars for going on a bear hunt, we wrote numbers on them so we could adjust the level of zoom. Finally we made maps to show where we had gone on our bear hunt.

In school they got ‘toasty’ and warm! They went on a fantastic bear hunt around the playground and used all their sense to explore the bear hunt story.

Red Class and the Paper Bag Princess

Wowzers Red Class, another awesome week! We are so proud of you all, 6 weeks of remote learning and you’re doing an amazing job.

This week we had a wonderful time on Wednesday for Express Yourself Day. Here is a video celebrating some of the fabulous ways we expressed ourselves.

Our story this week was the Paper Bag Princess. We designed dragon chasing adventure kits and thought up new challenges to tire out the dragon. We drew the end of the story where Elizabeth call Ronald a rude word (he deserves it!) and we made dragon puppets, which we used to dance in the new lunar year.

In Maths this week we made repeating patterns with two objects and then we made patterns with three objects. We drew number castles and shape dragons.

In PE we have been practising 4 types of jumps. We spent two days practising hopping and hop scotch, then ladder and criss-cross jumps. Finally, we put them together to make a circuit of jumps.

We had lots of fun playing in the snow

In school they’ve been busy, creating their own paper bag outfits, making lanterns for lunar new year.

Red Class and the Three Bears

Week 5 was another week full of fun and fantastic work. well done Red Class, we are so proud of you all.

We started the week telling the story together and making puppets.

Orla made some delicious looking biscuit story characters, yum!

Tuesday, was delicious, we all had porridge together and we wrote a class poem using all our senses.

We thought about size ordering this week and drew our families in height order.

We used our creativity and engineering skills to build chairs, we tested them and tried not to bang our bottoms like Goldilocks!

We sorted objects from into size order.

On Thursday, we thought about what baby bear would look like when they came home and what they might say.

We finished the week at the end of the story with Goldilocks waking up and seeing the bears.

Finally, we made magic maths hats, be careful they might send you into a spin!

There has been a lot of fun happening in school too. They have been on a bear hunt and playing rain games!

Week four took us on an adventure with the three billy goats gruff.

Red Class and The Gingerbread Man

Wowzers Red Class, another fantastic week of home learning. You are all doing so well, we’re really proud of all of you.

Here is some of the incredible work you have done this week.

This week we have been working on The Gingerbread Man. We told the story with lots of actions, we built up a story map with characters, labels and settings. We drew characters from the story with speech bubbles. Then, at the end of the week we made story maps with our own animals in.

We had a lot of fun with our magical maths remotes, the maths magic was so strong, I got very dizzy from all the spin buttons you were pressing!

Well done Red Class!
