Spring Term 2: Week 7
On Tuesday afternoon, Birch class went litter picking as part of their developing understanding of the environment and as their contribution to the pledge Brooke Hill have made for 'The Great Big School Clean 2022' campaign, led by Keep Britain Tidy. The word 'respect' is also a word we use a lot, not only because it is a school rule, but is something we can show to everyone, ourselves and everything around us including our environment. Children managed to collect 3 bags of rubbish from the school grounds.
Spring Term 2: Week 6
Spring Term 2: Week 5
This week, we have been learning about Jasper's Beanstalk. Children created the main character using different materials. We have also been making our own flowers and labelling the different parts.
Spring Term 2: Week 4
Spring Term 2: Week 3
For the next few weeks, we will be focusing on the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and introducing twists on the original fairy tale with texts such as 'Jack and the incredibly mean stalk'. In the mean time, we have been planting our own beans and have started our weekly 'Little Gardeners' sessions on a Friday morning. We have also been deconstructing flowers to look at the individual parts that make up a flower. A busy couple of weeks!
Spring Term 2: Week 1 & World Book Day 2022
Our learning focus during the first week uses the story 'Superworm'. We have been on a worm hunt and learned some interesting facts about worms!
Have a look below at some of our learning...
The Reception Team dressed up as characters from 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. One of our World Book Day activities was to make a seed envelope/packet using origami. We each took 5 beans (the amount of beans Jack sold the cow for in the story) and took them home in our seed envelope. The aim is to plant the beans and send in regular updates on Tapestry of our own 'beanstalks' growing.
