Week beginning 4th January 2022-English

 

We have started a new story for Literacy in Anaconda class this week called, 'Whatever Next'. It's all about a baby bear that enjoys an imaginary trip to the moon in a rocket that he finds in his house. Our work this week is linked to our story, we have created a textured picture of a bear and his rocket and followed instructions to build our own paper rocket. Some of our Anacondas have written some of the key words that have appeared in the story, they did this independently by saying them before spelling them. Also, they have ordered images as they appeared in the story, they have created their own image from the story and ordered the sentences.  It has been a very busy week, our Anacondas have worked their little socks off to produce some beautiful work!

Happy New Year!

We hope you all have had a lovely time over the Christmas holidays. We are back and ready to work!

This half term in RE we are learning about what weddings look like across a variety of religions. This week we looked at Christian weddings. The children designed their own wedding invitation and made their own wedding ring. After watching various videos about weddings we decided to role-play a Christian wedding. Our Anacondas all had a specific role to play in the wedding and got dressed up accordingly. It was so much fun! At the end they all signed the wedding certificate and threw rice over the happy couple as they walked up the aisle.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Anacondas have had a very busy run up to Christmas this year. We have created beautiful cards, lovely calendars and a great Christmas wreath!

 

We have been very lucky to have a pantomime come into school to perform Little Red Riding Hood for us. It was so much fun, Anacondas had such a great time laughing, singing and dancing along to the show.

 

Our Christmas performance this year was, 'Bethlehem's Got Talent'. Anacondas delivered an outstanding performance to the song, 'I want a hippopotamus for Christmas', we had so much fun taking part.

 

Springwell's Nativity performance was held in school this year and some of our Anacondas had important roles in the story. They all did an outstanding job as did all the other children.

 

Lastly was our Christmas disco and what a disco it was! Dancing, games, delicious goodies to eat and finished off with the conga. We had a blast!

 

Thank you all so much for your continued support. Have an amazing Christmas and we will see you all in the new year!

Week beginning 8th December 2021- R.E

This week in R.E our Anaconda's have looked at Diwali-the festival of light. We have read the story of Rama and Sita which teaches the concept of good triumphing over evil. We have listened to and enjoyed the music which is traditionally played during Diwali. Rangoli pictures are created during Diwali, they are often made using brightly coloured sand or spices. In class we coloured our Rangoli using felt pens. They look wonderful!

Bonfire Night

This week in History Anaconda's have  learnt all about Guy Fawkes and his failed mission to blow up the Houses of Parliament with King James I inside. We talked about the tradition of watching a bonfire and a firework display whilst eating delicious hotdogs, we decided that it was just too good not to do ourselves so we had our own 'bonfire' and 'fireworks' event in class. The hotdogs were a scrumptious treat too! Our lovely Anaconda's are also wonderful artists! They produced some great pictures of fireworks and a bonfire.

Halloween 2021

Anaconda class had so much fun celebrating Halloween this year.  We enjoyed visiting all the classes in school trick or treating getting lots of delicious goodies!

 

Week beginning 11/10/21

In Science Anaconda's have been looking at light and colour. We investigated and looked at various laminated pieces of coloured cellophane to see how our environment changed with each colour. Next, our children made their own glasses, each choosing their favourite colour cellophane to use for the lenses. 

Also in Science this week we have experimented with changing shades of coloured paint by adding either black or white paint to them.

Week Beginning 04/10/21 

 

Cookery 

 

This week in Cookery we made Pink Pancakes. We made the pancakes pink in colour by blitzing strawberries and adding them to the batter mix. It was a mixed response to the pancakes - some children were keen and others really didn't like them, stating "bad food"!
