The Teddy Bears Picnic

This week Class 2 have been thinking of different things they would look to have as part of their teddy bears picnic. There have been some great choices such as chocolate chip sandwiches, mustard and marmalade. We made jam sandwiches, ham sandwiches, juice, cake and even some crisps. The teddies had an awesome time and loved being at the picnic. The names of teddies were brilliantly chosen by the children. The picnic was enjoyed by everyone.

 

A Great Big Thankyou to Class 2

I want to say a big thank you to all parents, grandparents and family members for allowing me to teach their children in Class 2. They have been absolutely inspiring, funny and a credit to you and the school. Thanks again for everything and I hope to see everyone soon. Thank you, Mr Beazer.

07.07.2017 Class 2 trip to Seaquarium, Rhyl

Today we went on a trip to Seaquarium in Rhyl, as part of our topic, ‘At the Seaside’. We saw lots of different sea creatures such as rays, sharks, terrapins and eels. We also found out, that the two fish (Nemo and Dorie) from ‘Finding Nemo’ are actually called Clown Fish and Blue Tan fish. Some of us were really brave and stroked a star fish and crab. We also watched a seal show. The seal was called Nelly. She did some amazing tricks. We really enjoyed our day.

Using 3D shapes to build ships

This week in Numberland, we have been learning about lots of different shapes, including 3D shapes. We know the names of some 3D shapes. These are cubes, cylinders, pyramids and spheres. We have used these shapes to build our own ships. Look at our amazing designs. We are the designers and builders of the future.

Our class topic: In the Garden

 

This week we have been doing lots of busy jobs in Class 2. In Numberland, we have been making minibeast patterns based on colours and types of minibeasts. In Letterland, we have been on a minibeast hunt on the school field and recorded the different minibeasts we have found. Also we have been using our art skills to make 3D bugs. We have made spiders, butterflies and bees. Thank you very much to parents, grandparents and family members for providing recycled items for us to make our 3D bugs.

The Weather

 

Our class topic this term is the weather. We have been learning to ask and say what the weather is like each day. We know that, Sut mae'r tywydd heddiw? means What's the weather like today? We always start our answer with Mae hi'n, which means, it is, then the type of weather. We are really good at this.

Weather Forecasting Patterns

 

In our mathematical development lessons we have started to become really good weather forecasters, by making weather patterns based on different symbols. We have used symbols such as the sun, rain and cloudy.

Class 2 Weather Pattern Forecasters

Science

In Science, all of us in class 1 and 2 have been investigating which liquid cleans a 2p coin the best.  Last week, we made our own predictions to see if milk, ketchup or water would clean the 2p coin.  This week we found out our results.  It was really quite surprising. We found out that milk and ketchup were the best liquids.

Recycling

 

During forest school we have also continued recycling, which we learnt about last week. We remembered that plastic bottles go in grey bags and paper/cardboard goes in blue bags. Today, however we had to put our snack waste and milk bottles into a different bin for recycling. This was a blue metal bin.  We are very good at recycling in Class 2.

Forest School

 

This week in our forest school lesson we have been balancing on the hill on the school field. We have learnt that we can also balance inside when we do P.E. as well as outside. We really enjoyed our afternoon as we also got to practice writing numbers with leaves as our number activity. We also got to stand and wave at the cars, lorries and even tractors on the A55 from the bridge.

Class 2: Weighing

 

This week in class 2, we have been looking at weighing and balancing in lessons. We have been using scales and guessing the weights of different objects in our numeracy class. We have guessed the weight of different objects, such as bean bags, plastic bottles and cups. To check the weight of these items we have used teddies to balance them on the scales. We have been really good at guessing the weights and counting in one's to find how much each object weighs.

Future Olympians

Following on from our balancing lesson in Forest School last week, we have been practising how to balance in different ways on various apparatus in P.E. this week. We have been learning how to safely travel on the benches too. As Class 2, we have been taught how to carefully jump off the gym equipment and land safely on both feet by bending our knees. We listened carefully at all times. The future Olympics has real starts in the making.

This week, Class 2 have been in forest school. As part of our forest school activity, we went for a walk around the local area of Ewloe Green. We were shown by Mr Manford and Mrs Lacey how important it is to cross the road safely as, Ewloe Green is on a busy main road. As part of lesson we had to balance on objects such as stones, rock and twigs. This was our main activity. We also got to splash in puddles and stroke the horses in the nearby field. Thank you very much to Mr Manford and Mrs Lacey for looking after us.

Science and Entrepreneurial Week 

 

Wow! What a super fun week we have had!

Reception children decided for Entrepreneurial Week that they wanted to make 'Bird Feeders' as the weather is so cold and icy, they were all worried about how the birds would get their food. 

We first of all had a look at pictures of different bird feeders and then we investigated which material would be best to hold the bird seed together. 

We are going to be selling our Bird Feeders on Friday for £1 each so we hope lots of you will buy one to help the birds over winter and to help raise some money for our school!

 

 

 

 

 

We made predictions

Forest Schools 27/9/16 smiley

 

Today was our first Forest School session in Reception. We started off by going for  a little walk around the local area. We found muddy puddles to jump in and met some friends along the way (Neeiiiiiiggggghhhhhbours !!) 

When we got back to our Forest School area we were set our task of working with a friend and making faces! We collected natural objects and made eyes, noses, mouths and ears. It was so much fun! Mr.Williams and Mrs. Davies were very impressed with the children's efforts! What fantastic children we have!

Class Teacher- Mrs K. Davies  

Teaching assistants- Mrs A. Lacey  &   Mrs T. Lefley

 

 

Welcome to Reception. Your child has now been in class for a few days and I hope he/she has enjoyed settling in.

 

Book Bags

Each night your child will bring home his/her book bag. Please help your child by reading the book with your child. To begin with your child's book may have pictures but no words. Please help your child to talk about the pictures, to hold the book properly and to turn the pages. When your child has a book with words, please help him or her to sound out the letters to read the words. Please remember the way we pronounce these letters may be different from the way you learned and it is important that they are pronounced the same at school and home. Please see me if you are unsure or look at Read Write Inc websites.

 

In the front of your child's book log you will find a sheet with letters on. The ones circled are the ones your child knows. Please help your child learn the ones we have underlined at school. We will only learn a couple of new ones at a time.

 

 

You will also have received a sheet with the names of the characters in the books your child brings home.  The main characters are Mum  Dad  Biff (short for Elizabeth) Chip  Kipper  and Floppy (the dog). 

 

Thankyou for sending pumps for p.e. to school.

 

Thankyou for sending fruit and baking money.

 

We have discussed our school Golden Rules and this may be something you wish to discuss at home with your child.

 

Your child may also talk about the Tedi Hapus Iawn (happy teddy) and Tedi Trist (Sad teddy). Children's names are placed on these if they do something that make us really proud or if they do something that makes us sad at school.

 

Finally, for now, a couple of times per year your child will bring home a puppet dragon (Dil or Del) on a Friday. Please write a couple of pages of what your child disd over the weekend and include a couple of pictures and PLEASE try to include a couple of Welsh words or phrases.Diolch.
