  • Thursday 1 April 2021 Friday 1st April We have had a really fun week this week finishing our topic on `What is growing in our garden` and linking it to our new topic on Sculptures.  We looked at the work of a famous sculptor Charlotte Huppfield who uses things found in nature to create her clay pieces.  The children then had a turn to create their own interpretation of her work by creating a clay tile and using leaves and twigs to make an imprint. Can you seen the leaves that they have used?

  • Thursday 1 April 2021 Friday 1st April Today the children At Westbury Infants School were able to participate in a belated book day as we missed the official one during the lock down. There were some amazing costumes and characters from so many different books. Louie chose Harry Potter because he can use magic to battle bad wizards. Ivy chose to be Little Red Riding Hood because she liked the story going into the woods. We finished the special day with a super Easter egg hunt to celebrate the end of term and the Easter Bunny actually made a visit to deliver a lovely chocolate egg.
  • Thursday 1 April 2021 World Book Day We managed a few snaps of some of the children in their costumes quickly this morning. It was wonderful to see the array of different characters. We have Matilda, Miss Trunchbull, Willy Wonka, Fantastic Mr Fox, Alice in Wonderland, Unicorns and George and his marvelous medicine.

  • Friday 26 March 2021 Friday 26th March Once again, Bears have had a busy week.  We have been really impressed with some of the learning that has been taking place and it has been so lovely to hear the children talking enthusiastically about their work.  In maths this week, our reception children were looking at different numbers in their environment whilst our year 1s and 2s were learning about mass and capacity.   It was great to listen to the children discussing whether their cups were full, almost full, half full, almost empty or empty during snack time today and it demonstrated that they all had a really good understanding of the work we have been doing in maths.
  • Friday 26 March 2021 March 26th Sea Turtles This week Sea Turtles have been counting objects in and out of the class. The children have been learning to count on from 5 and using ten frames.

  • Friday 26 March 2021 26th March We have had a great week this week thinking about the Gingerbread Man in English and then designing our own and baking them in the afternoon. The children have come up with some fantastic ideas about what to use and how it should look. They have thought carefully about why they have chosen certain things to make their design and how to attach the details to it. They are all looking forward to creating these designs next week.

  • Saturday 20 March 2021 Friday 19th March There has been lots of lovely learning taking place in Bears this week, from pattern making (Reception) and measuring (Year 1 and 2) to planting potatoes and making observational drawings of different fruits and vegetables.  The children are all working hard in RWI too and are using their knowledge of letter sounds to help them read, spell and write words and sentences.  In music, the children were learning to play the glockenspiel.  They all tried really hard to play in time to the music.  Well done Bears!
