Welcome to Buttercup Class
We have started the summer term by introducing our new topic, Fairy Tales. We plan to look at a different fairy tale each week. At the beginning of the week the children found a broken chair, some porridge and a book on the carpet. There was great discussion about how it got there and the children produced some very good writing about what they had found. The children made puppets of the characters with moving parts using split pins and used them to retell the story in groups. We finished the week by making wanted posters in order to help to find Goldilocks.
In maths we have been focusing on repeated addition and making equal groups as the basis for multiplication. We will continue to work on this next week by looking at doubling.
In science we took a walk around the school grounds to look for signs of spring and we are more than pleased to announce that we found some! Finally! In RE we talked about special books focusing initially on our own special books before moving on to books that are special to particular religions. We spent some time learning about the Commonwealth in geography following the recent Commonwealth Games. In PSHE we talked about people who are important to us and what makes them important. We wrote about these people and drew pictures of them.
We were very sad to be saying goodbye to Maisy this week. She is moving away and we wish her and her family a very happy furture. She was presented with the Star Award in assembly for being a lovely member of Buttercup Class. Ellen also received a Star Award for a great 'Wanted' poster. Well done girls! Buttercup Banana has gone to spend some time with Braden after having a lovely rest over Easter.
