Welcome to Wrens Class!
Mrs Crooks and Mrs Amos are your Class Teachers and you will also be looked after by Mrs Davies and Mr Dodsworth.
This term is all about Festivals and Celebrations! We are looking forward to learning all about Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. You will be making cards and decorations and even pizza! Please see the Autumn 2 Topic Map for more information. We are also now able to post pictures and video clips of our learning in action, so keep scrolling!
This week the children have enjoyed a whole school Christmas Lunch and a fun Christmas party. The children have been extremely well behaved. We are very proud of them.
We wish you a very Happy Christmas to you and your families.
Wishing you a very Happy 2021!
Count down to Christmas.
We hope you enjoy the Wrens singing in the School production?
The children are getting very excited about Christmas and they are designing their own Christmas cards.
We are asking the children what they have enjoyed learning best this term. It maybe Forest School, cooking pizzas, pancakes, the woodland walk and picnic, dressing the village Christmas tree or playing on the wheeled toys outside during circle time.
Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!
This week the Wrens have been busy practising the Christmas songs with appropriate actions for “Away in a manager”.
We are writing Christmas lists to Santa so let’s hope their wishes come true.
We are learning about Advent, calendars, the Christmas story and the meaning of Christingles.
We have an interactive Arctic animals’ snowy scene and the Stable with wooden figures and animals for the children to explore.
Please remember the children need to bring/ wear a Christmas jumper next Monday for their Christmas performance.
This week Wrens Class have been planning their own party. Whoop whoop! They have loved singing, dancing and using their creative and literacy skills to make and write their own party cards.
The children have enjoyed writing invitations to invite friends to their party, writing party food lists in their Literacy books and using the play dough to make cakes and sandwiches. Yum yum!
We have also been learning about addition and using the associated language; add, plus, makes, equals, total, altogether. The children have been using our pizzeria theme to add ingredients together to find the total. Well done Wrens you have worked hard.
This week the children have been learning in our Pizzeria. They have been reading the menus, using the phone and computer to place orders and putting together pretend pizzas with lots of different toppings. Thank you Mr Dodsworth for cutting out all those mushrooms, olives and peppers! The children then made real pitta bread pizzas and really enjoyed eating them. They wrote instructions on how to make their pizza in their literacy books. Bellissimo!
This week we have been learning about Diwali and making lanterns to decorate the classroom. We have learnt about why and how Hindus celebrate this festival of light. The children enjoyed listening to the story of Rama and Sita. They were very interested in how Sita dropped jewels so she could leave a trail to be rescued safely.
