Monday 1st October 2018 – Friday 5th October 2018


We have had a busy week in Crab class this week. We have been weighing to the closest 100g and have also been finding items that are lighter or heavier than 100g.  We have also written a diary entry about a trek to the South Pole and used some brilliant adjectives.

This week we were also lucky enough to have a visit from Travelling Tuba. We got to listen to some brilliant brass music and also got to make some music of our own.





Monday 24th September – Friday 28th September 2018


This week in Crab class we have been busy carrying our more science experiments! We tested the absorbency of kitchen towel to find out which would be the best at clearing up spills. We also listened to Vivaldi's Four Seasons and then created our own seasons compositions to help us write poetry about the four seasons.

This week in Crab class we have been critiquing famous pictures about weather including Caillebotte's 'Paris Street: Rainy Day'. We have also been learning about partitioning numbers. However our highlight of the week was our absorbency experiment in our science lesson. We tested the absorbency of a range of materials and decided which was the most absorbent.




Monday 10th – Friday 14th September 2018


This week in Crab class we have sorted materials into groups, had our first active maths session and carried out an experiment about clouds. The children have all settled in really well and have been enthusiastic with everything we have done so far!




Thursday 6th – Friday 7th September 2018


Welcome back! It has been lovely to see so many smiley faces over the last two days and to see the children come back with a new enthusiasm for learning. We have spent the two days learning our class routines and immersing ourselves in this half terms topic, which is weather. We've managed to squeeze in time for art and outdoor learning session as well as writing about our summer holiday news and agreeing our class rules. We hope you have a great weekend and look forward to seeing the children again on Monday.
