To celebrate the Queen's 91st birthday we all dressed in red, white and blue. We also learnt a few facts about the Queen and designed a delicious birthday cake.

Monday 20th - Friday 24th March 2017

 

This week our school has been lucky enough to play host to The Problem Solving Company and each class has had an individual session in the Upper School Hall to try out some of the activities.

 

Our session was on Wednesday and we had a great time!

 

Poor Miss Scott wasn't very well so Mrs Coulson, Mrs Fox and Mrs Jones accompanied us and they were all impressed with the way that we worked in our teams to solve the problems.

 

Tom gave us a pattern that we had to copy using the shapes that he had given us. We split into teams and we began! Once we had mastered the first one, Tom gave us a more challenging pattern to make. Could we do it? Of course we could!

We have been learning how to collect data and how to use this to help us answer questions. We have collected eye colour information and used it to make a tally chart and a pictogram.

The most common eye colour in Angelfish Class was BLUE.

This week we have been writing our own Cinderella story using all that we have learnt about fairy tales. Everyone has worked extremely hard and made me very proud. Keep up the hard work my little Angelfish.

 

In science we have also been learning about materials and their properties, which we used to help us sort objects in to the right categories.

 

 

 

 

                                 

 

Monday 16th - Friday 20th January

 

This week we have been listening, reading and acting out Fairy tales with a focus on Cinderella. We've had a go at using adjectives to describe the characters in the story in preparation for writing our own Cinderella story next week. Here are some pictures of what we've been up to this week.

Following our visit to the library gardens I set the children a challenge, which they more than rose to. The children were asked to use marshmallows and spaghetti to build a tall and strong structure that would stand on its own. 

It was certainly a trial and error process but eventually the children worked out that they needed a base in order to build upwards. Not all of the children were successful but they were able to explain why their structure collapsed.

 

It was sticky and messy but we certainly had fun!

Monday 14th-Friday 18th November

 

Wow! What a busy week we've had in Angelfish Class. This week we have learnt about writing stories and even went to the beach to act out our 'Lost!' story. Together we have created a word bank of awesome adjectives, which we will be using next week to write own version of the story. Angelfish Class have impressed me with their enthusiasm and I can't wait to read their stories next week.

Here is a snapshot of some of the things that Angelfish have been doing this half term - as you can see we have been very busy since we returned to school in September!

 

Talking of being busy, I would like to apologise for the late posting - it has been an absolute whirlwind over the past 7 weeks!

 

Look out for weekly postings of our photos after half term.
