Mrs Holdsworth: May 2019
We have had a lovely busy week of learning in Base 1. We have enjoyed retelling and reliving our village trip from last week and have even made our own mini Wrenbury using junk modelling materials! The reception children have also drawn their own story maps and written a recount, they worked so hard on them and made me very proud. This week we have also been learning about 'good health and wellbeing' as part of our work on the global goals. We spent time talking about what it means to have good health and wellbeing, the children worked out that we needed to eat lots of fruit and veg and move around to have a healthy body and that wellbeing means to look after ourselves and others and to 'live happily'. We then practised having good health and wellbeing with our activities for the day. The children could choose to try out an exercise course, go on a nature walk and do some art, try some yoga or become a kindness elf and make some kindness badges. The children have been busy looking out for each other and giving kindness badges ever since!
I hope you all have a lovely half term break.
PS. I have 15 unnamed jumpers left in the classroom, please do let me know if you have lost one. Please do also check that all of your jumpers do have names in as we move into into the second summer term and (hopefully!) we have some warm weather!

I was impressed with how well the children used the...
We have been budding scientists this week. After reading our class text 'The Garbage King', we decided that Mamo needed a new mattress as we felt that a straw one probably wasn't that comfy. Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
