Avon Valley Farm Park

Oak class spent a rainy but lovely day at Avon Valley. We had a fun-packed day feeding goats, grooming ponies and pond dipping. We even watched a pig race – the green pig won!

Learning and Lunch!
Thank you to all of the parents who attended the Learning and lunch! The children (and adults) had a fantastic day, sharing our learning and showing how much we have grown this year.

A day at the zoo!

Oak class had a super day at the zoo on Monday. It was our first big trip of the year- We travelled to the zoo on a coach. When we got there we had time to explore the zoo and then went into a jungle boogie session. The zookeeper let us touch a snake, cockroach and a stick insect. We can’t wait to carry on learning about the zoo at school.

World Book Day

The children (and adults) have had a super fun day dressing up as their favourite characters. We spent the morning talking about stories and then linked our Maths to the Stick Man book. We threw stick man, compared sticks and also collected different amounts of sticks.

This week we have been reading Stickman. So, as part of our Forest Friday we decided to use our imaginations to see what we could use a stick for. We began by using some ideas from the story and then shared our own ideas. We used them as badminton rackets, broomsticks, BBQ tools, wands and even to create a moustache!

Christmas has arrived in Oak class

Overnight our classroom has turned Christmassy! We now have a fab Elf workshop and a sleigh to play in. We can make letters to Santa and fly around the world, delivering presents.

Stay and PE

We had so much fun teaching our parents how to throw and catch this week. We showed them how to warm up our bodies and then we played lots of games that helped us throw underarm.

Potent Potions

The children have been pretending to be witches today. They made potions that could turn children into houses, slime and sticks. They used some fantastic words to talk about the smell and consistency of the potions.

Deb the Dinosaur
We have been helping Deb settle into school life by helping her write her name, teaching her Phonics and helping her count. Today, we helped Deb get ready for school. We reminded her that she needed a uniform, a book bag and a packed lunch. We made her a healthy packed lunch by cutting, peeling and slicing some fruit. We tried some too – it was delicious!

Autumn Fun
For Forest Friday this week we created a giant dinosaur using leaves from the floor. The children noticed that the leaves were lots of different colours. We talked about Autumn and how the leaves had started to fall.

Stay and Phonics
We had a fantastic morning showing our family how we teach and learn in Phonics. We learnt a new sound, practised writing it and then completed some activities with the adults. Thank you to all of the adults who attended – the children loved having you there!

Let’s go fly kite….
We don’t let the wind stop us having fun at Bowsland! The children were stick at it tortoises as they designed their kites. With a little bit of adult support the children made their kites and then spent time seeing how fast they could run, how high they could get the kites to go and laughing as the kites crashed to the ground!

The children have enjoyed making bread this week. They measured out the ingredients, mixed them together and then kneaded the dough. But most of all they loved eating it!

Oak Class have had a super first week! The children have settled really well and are already making and developing new friendships. Their behaviour has been brilliant and they are already challenging themselves to get on to the golden star. We are already so proud of them and are so excited about the rest of this year!
