Welcome to Clover Class Page
It was lovely to welcome back the children after the Easter break and they excitedly told us of the things they had been doing.
We were able to enjoy the beautiful weather this week by going on a walk around the school grounds looking for the signs of spring as part of our ongoing learning in science about the seasons.
At the beginning of the week the children were shocked to discover that a chair in the classroom had been broken and porridge was also found! The children realised that Goldilocks may have visited. This introduced our summer term topic learning about 'Fairy Tales'. The children wrote about what had occurred in the classroom, made puppets of the characters and used drama to re-enact the story and made a 'wanted' poster for Goldilocks.
In maths this week the children have been introduced to the concept of multiplication through practically exploring repeated addition, through grouping objects and forming arrays.
In other learning, following on from the recent Commonwealth Games, the children have learnt about the Commonwealth and the countries within this 'family' and located them on a globe. We also talked about books which are special to us and why and learnt about the special books of different religions. We also thought about people who are special in our lives and why.
We ended the week with our 'Fun Fitness Day' which the children really enjoyed and were treated to dance displays by children from Fullbrook.
The star award was given to Matilda for her excellent co-operation and teamwork during the drama session and Clover Croc will be spending the weekend with Mason.
We look forward to seeing the Home Learning Journals on Monday.
