On Shrove Tuesday we learnt about Mr Wolf pancakes and how his friends wouldn’t help he make pancakes.
Then as a class we made pancake mix and wrote up the instructions. Then we went to cook them with Miss Kippen.
In the afternoon we all turned into scientists. We were all given a bean to grow into a beanstalk. We made bean diaries so we could record what the bean looked like, how we put it in its pot to start growing. Next week we will look again at the bean to see if anything has happened!
This week we have been practising our 3D shapes and recof=gnising them linked with their name. We practised looking at their faces and trying to think about how we can find these 3D shapes in real life.
We love singing this song in the mornings and its really helped us learn our shapes.
We have even started to make our own 3D shapes by using sticks, straws and cardboard.
Why not ask us to tell you about 3D shapes that we know!
Today we had a mystery reader appear in our shed. We sent Joshua to find out who it was because he’d never been part of mystery reader before/ When he opened the door he found…
Mrs Plant had brought with her a wonderful story about a very persistent pigeon who wanted to drive a bus.
The book was called “don’t let the pigeon drive the bus” written by Mo Willems.
Miss Irwin found the story on YouTube,why not watch it!
We all know definitely not to let a pigeon drive a bus.
Thank you Mrs Plant for bringing that story and being a mystery reader.
Tomorrow is World book day when we celebrate all things wonderful about reading all sorts of books. For World Book Day we are allowed to come dressed as one of our favourite book characters.
Miss Irwin would also like us to bring in one of our favourite books so we can share it with our friends. Please make sure our name is in our book.
Look at this amazing welly rack Maddie’s Dad very kindly made for Class Jonah. No longer will we have wet wellies or odd pairs.
We can definitely say Mr Holford is someone we should look up to. As he has all the qualities we want to have as Astbury learners- he’s been kind, he has shared, he has shown us his skills and he has helped us with our learning.
THANK YOU MR HOLFORD
This week back after half term has been one full of imagination. Our brains have really started to think about new and exciting ways to learn.
This week we have learnt about 3D solid shapes and we have been learning the names cube, cuboid, cylinder, sphere, cone, triangular prism and square based pyramid, some of us even recognise a hexagonal prism! We have started to recognise them when we match them we descriptions of shapes and some names. We will be continuing with 3D shapes next week. In our reading we have learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and we have thought about the characters and how they behave and how they feel. We have also built our own role-play castle outside for kings, queens and knights and inside we are making a giants castle with a beanstalk, giant table and large golden eggs!
Next week we will be a very busy week
Monday we have the Guinness World Record attempt
Tuesday- is pancake day
Wednesday- we go to church for ash Wednesday
Thursday-is world book day when we come dressed as a character from a book.
As well as all that we will be planting our beans and watching them grow!
How you can help at home
* Help us to remember our sounds we have learnt before half term as well as ‘ur’ and our new sounds ‘ow’.
* Practise our high frequency and tricky words as Miss Irwin will be seeing which words we know.
* Get our costume ready for world book day.
if you can help on Monday with the Guinness world record please let Miss Irwin know by calling the school office or talking to her at the gate.
If you have any unwanted or old tools and screws you no longer need at home, please can we have them because our plastic screws don’t work in the butternut squashes!
Lastly, just to let you know Mrs Armitt will not be covering Class Jonah for Miss Irwin’s planning time on Fridays now. As she has had to have an emergency operation this week and will not be back in school until the summer term. She is recovering in hospital and getting better every day. We have made her cards and written her lovely notes to wish her well.
Have a nice weekend
Miss Irwin and Miss Kippen
On Tuesday we had a guinea pig surprise at show and tell time as Charlotte’s mum and brother had brought in their 3 Guinea Pigs.
Charlotte told us about how her sister and brother and her have their own guinea pig each and that they are all girls.
We liked the Guinea Pigs very much.
Thanks Carey Family for bringing them in.
