Neverland Class update

Welcome to our final term, Summer! To get us started for this term, we have begun a new topic, ‘Infinity and Beyond’. The children are very excited about this topic, there is much to learn about space! We have spent some time learning about trees and plants in Science and getting our hands covered in soil while planting our own cress and sunflowers. Alongside Science we have completed another PSHE unit which is about what is safe to go in and on our bodies. The children have shown excellent understanding about what is good for us and who we should go to if we are unsure about whether or not something is safe for our bodies. Please continue to send children in with appropriate shoes and in the correct school uniforms. New topic homework has been sent home, feel free to get started on this and don’t forget to fill in reading logs when reading at home – 5 recorded reads at home equals 5 Mundesley merits children can spend in the Mundesley Merit shop!

Neverland Class update

The Spring term has come to an end for the children of Neverland class. We have been as busy as always. In Maths we have been checking our understanding of skip counting and groups of 2s, 5s and 10s. In Phonics we have recapped the sounds ‘ar’, ‘u-e’ (U-Hoo), ‘u-e’ (Cool Blue) and ‘o-e’. Our afternoons have been very busy creating sea coral pictures to participating in two parent events! On Monday we welcomed families in to help us complete a ‘Way Down Under topic quiz’ – Well done to team Wombats for a outstanding team effort which lead them to winning first place! On Wednesday we had a Easter craft afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came to these events, it is always lovely to see everyone! We have sent home read books, home handwriting and an Easter themed booklet for the children to complete over the half term holiday. Have a wonderful Easter break and I will see you all in the Summer term!

This week we have been recapping the sounds ‘oi’, ‘oy’, ‘ai’ and ‘ay’. We explored words with these sounds and started adding a range of suffixes to them independently. In Maths we have continued exploring multiples of ten and have started looking at numbers between 10 and 100 in depth. Our afternoons have been spent getting creative. We have studied what a sculpture is, sketched an Australian animal and then made an Austrialian animal clay sculpture – which all look amazing! Please continue reading at home and updating reading records. Reading at home helps with our reading confidence and is a great opportunity to practise our phonics!

This week in phonics we have started recapping the sounds we have been learning throughout the year – who knew we could remember so many sounds and words! In Maths we have been deepening our understanding of tens and how we can add and subtract them. In English, we have started our new story ‘The Koala Who Could’ by Rachel Bright and Jim Field. We have thoroughly enjoyed this story and have become motivated to attempt the things we find hard too. Please continue to bring in reading packs and don’t forget, reading at home could earn you an extra 5 Mundesley Merits every week!

Welcome back – I hope everyone had a lovely half term break. The children have come back into class full of energy and ready. We have began this week by learning the sounds ‘are’, ‘y’ and ‘ph’ in phonics. In Maths we grew our understanding of the teen numbers by identifing the tens and ones. In English we have began writing reports about Wombats. Our afternoons have been spent learning about money in our PSHE lessons. Our PSHE focus is Money. To support this topic focus, we had a visit from Hope who is a member of the HSBC team. Hope taught us the importance of money and how to keep it safe.

Neverland have been inspired by our JONK character, the creative spider throughout this week. We have been busy creating our own aborignal inspired art! We have learnt about how the resources are found and used, the patience needed to create such wonderful pieces and just how long it takes to create a beautiful piece of work which is made of dots! We have thoroughly enjoyed getting creative. We have used this creativeness in English, writing recounts as a wombat after reading ‘Diary of a Wombat’ by Jackie French. In Maths we have explored the number 0. Please continue to read at home and bring reading packs into school.

We have enjoyed describing our beach experiences and using these to help create postcards written by a pirate! Our afternoons have been filled with history. We have learnt about Aboriginals and the British settlers who arrived in 1788. When we haven’t been busy learning new facts about Australia, we have been busy practising our gymnastics skills in PE.

The busyness continues here in Neverland class. We have finished our learning in Maths about stories (first, then, now) to support addition and subtraction. We applied our understanding to word problems which the children loved! In English, we start reading ‘At the Beach’ by Roland Harvey. There have been so many beach stories to share and write about. In topic, we have finished our Geography exploration of Norwich and Alice Springs – who knew these two places could have so many similarities and differences at the same time?
