Jays - Year R

Welcome to Jays!

Term 5

 

It has been an exciting start to the new term with our launch day. Everyone dressed up to the theme of growing or a fairy tale character.  All the children looked amazing! We talked about what grows and learnt a song about a farmer planting his seeds. Later in the day we made flowers, scarecrows and planted our own sunflower seeds, which we now have to look after.  In the afternoon we went to the allotment to see what was growing and we even had our snack down there too.

 

​In maths we have been ordering numbers using Numicon, number tiles and fishing for objects with numbers on in the water tray which we then had to order. Some children have even had a go at making their own 100 square. 
 

Book Day Thursday 22nd March

 

As part of our world book day celebrations (be it abit late due to the snow closures) we worked with Kingfisher class . We listened to the story of the Gruffalo, acted it out and then created lots of artwork through painting and collaging and even story boarding on rolls of paper. It was fun working with the older children as they helped us.

SNOW!

 

This week Jay class have had lots of fun exploring the ice and snow. After running around and picking up the snow they decided to get spades and brooms so that the could clear the snow. We did a science experiment too. The children filled a container with snow and brought it inside the classroom. We then observed how it changed in the warmth of our classroom. It melted into water we put it back outside over night. In the morning we observed that it turned into ice and decided that it was because it was so cold

We have been creating our own weather mobiles and wind socks. We used a variety of materials such as card, tissue paper and wool.

We are very proud of the Jays for taking part in our local MPS Christmas card competition. The children all tried very hard to draw their best designs for the cards. Helen Grant proudly visited our school today and presented the children with a certificate to thank them for taking part. Well done!
