Chimps (Year R)

Gymnastics fun!


During this Spring term we have been working hard on our gymnastic skills in our weekly PE lessons. We have been learning different rolls, jumps and shapes. Including pike, straddle, star and tuck. We also used the apparatus and learnt how to safely put the mats away working well as a team. We are also very proud of the chimps class that they are all able to get themselves dressed and undressed for PE with very little help from adults!

Snow Day!

Hello Chimps, hope you are enjoying the snow days at home with your friends and family. Here is a snowy home challenge for you...  make the most of it! 





We received this gigantic letter from the Giant from Jack and the Beanstalk!


So, we used the giant's footprints to start measuring around the classroom. We used fantastic mathematical measure vocabulary such as longer, shorter, equal to etc. 




We're going on a leaf hunt!  



This week, we decided to go on a leaf hunt around our school grounds. We used a tick sheet with a variety of leaves to help us compare the different leaves. We looked at their colour, shape and texture. We were also fantastic at getting ourselves dressed for the outdoors independently, including wellies! If you enjoy the outdoors, then we love the Woodlands Trust Nature Detectives website for ideas and activities.





Double Trouble!


We have been learning about doubles! We went on a double hunt and looked around the classroom to see what doubles we could spot! Our next challenge to practise adding doubles.



Doubles Doubles - we have been enjoying this song!

Doubles Doubles (I Can Add Doubles!) 1+1=2 2+2=4 3+3=6 4+4=8 5+5=10

Can we fix it? YES WE CAN!


In chimps class we have been busy helping poor Bob the Builder. We received a letter from Bob explaining that he had hurt his arm, and needs our help! So we have been working hard  to plan and build our own model town, using recyclable materials. Thank you to all the friends and family members who brought in various materials to help!



Phonics Workshop for Friends and Family


A huge thank- to those friends and family members that attended our 'Introduction to Phonics' and 'reading' workshop. I hope that you found it very helpful and as promised I will leave the Powerpoints from both workshops below. If you were unable to attend the workshop, not to worry, I will be running a part 2 (phonics) soon a date to be soon confirmed.

Fun with Patterns!


In Chimps class we have been learning all about different types of repeating patterns.  We spent a week practising our pattern making in many different ways!
