WB 27.6.22 

This week the children have been learning to count money. They have been using their counting knowledge from counting in ones, twos, fives and tens to help them. We began a new literacy unit this week inspired by the book 'Tiddler'. The children have been using the tier 2 words 'captured' and 'struggled' in some fantastic sentences. 
In art, we began our printing unit. The children explored printing with paint using sponges, beads, numicon tiles and many other items. They thought about how much paint to use and how to apply it.

WB 20.6.22 

This week the children have been making, reading, writing and ordering numbers to 100. They have really had to think about the place value of two digit numbers and what each digit means. In science, we went outdoors to hunt for different types of tree. In DT we made the boats that we designed last week.

Visit to The National Marine Aquarium 17.6.22 

We have had a fantastic day today to The national Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. Our guide, Karen, taught us all about different sea creatures and their habitats. She told us some interesting and pretty disgusting facts! We created some super crowns to show off our knowledge about habitats.

WB 9.5.22 

This week the children have been creating wonderful poems on the theme of a submarine ride. They have used some lovely descriptive language.

In maths we have been learning about sharing and have been introduced to the division symbol. 

In science, we looked at a range of different seeds under a magnifying glass and started an investigation to find out which type of seed will germinate the fastest.

WB 21/03/22 

This week in literacy we have started a new unit based around the African Tinga Tinga tales.  This week we are finding out about why the elephant has a trunk.  We also found out where the savannah is Africa is and have been working on how to describe it as well as the character of the elephant in the story.

In maths we are learning about capacity - the amount a container can hold.  This is usually done using liquids but a container can be filled with other things.  We explored the capacity of different containers and measured their volume in cups.

WB 14.3.22 

In maths we have been learning about mass and weight. We have been using balance scales to measure weights using non standard units. We have been comparing objects using the words heavier and lighter.
In literacy we completed out learning unit about 'The Very Busy Spider' by creating our own versions of the story. The children chose their own animals to try to tempt the spider away from her web. 
As part of science week, we did the 'Rocket Mouse' investigation. We made little paper mice and sent them flying through the sky using the air released when the empty bottle launcher was quickly squashed. 
For comic relief we wore our own clothes or dressed as super heroes, we entered a T-shirt design competition and went to buy items at a sale. We had a super-hero themed afternoon to celebrate Seaton Class getting all of the gems in the jar.

W/B 7.3.22 

We started this week with a celebration of all things Cornish!  Despite being a few days late we had a St Piran's Day...day.  Dancing, art, history and writing all around the theme of our wonderful Cornwall.  The children had a great time and broadened their knowledge of our local area.
In Literacy we are continuing with our Very Busy Spider story and this week found alternative words for 'said'.  This was quite tricky because we had to think of ways to describe the animal sounds not just 'oink oink' or 'moo moo' but called, shouted, whispered, gobbled etc.
In maths we've been learning how to use a ruler and starting from the 0 line.  Using the language of long, longer and longest.  Short, shorter and shortest.  And almost, nearly, about when we describe the length of objects.
In IT we've been looking at staying safe online and what information we should / shouldn't share with others, and what inappropriate actually is for us.
We have started to learn about why Easter matters to Christian's this week but discussing what we know about Easter and spring and by listening to the Easter story.
We recapped our learning about primary colours in art and then mixed primary colours to make secondary colours.

WB 7.2.22 

We have completed our information text unit this week by writing information leaflets about a wild animal of our choice. We had to lay out the information in sections and lots of us remembered to use some of the scientific tier three vocabulary that we have studied in class. 
In maths we have just started counting in 2's. 
In science this week we learnt about the diets of animals. We learnt that animals can be carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. 
In art we followed step by step instructions to draw wonderful woodland creatures in our sketchbooks.

WB 31.1.22 

This week we have been continuing to familiarise ourselves with numbers to 50. Making them using base 10 resources and finding one more and one less.
In literacy we have been writing information sentences, joining clauses with 'and' and writing questions.
In RE we focused on another piece of 'good news' that Christians believe Jesus brought. This week it was peace. We thought about what we can do to help us find peace when we are worried. We created doves as these are a symbol of peace for people of the Christian faith.
In Science we thought again about reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish and birds. We look at two of each type of animals and listed their similarities and differences.
In art we used our line drawing techniques from our last session to help us to 'take a pencil for a walk'. We then filled in the spaces using the colouring techniques we have tried out.

WB 24.1.22 

This week we have started to recognise and write numbers to 50. 
We have started a new literacy unit all about information texts and learnt that they often have technical tier three words in them. We found the technical words in our class text about a greater horseshoe bat.
We learnt that people of the Christian faith believe that part of the 'Good news' brought by Jesus was to forgive others. We thought about times when we have forgiven people or when we have wanted someone to forgive us. We read the story of The Unforgiving Servant from the bible.
