Welcome to Poppy Class 2018-19

 

Length and Height

Monday 11th March 2019

 

This week we have been learning all about measuring length and height. Our favourite bit was when we used rulers to measure our own feet and compared them against our classmates. 

Tuesday 5th March 

 

We could not wait for pancake day this year as we were going to make our own pancakes from scratch! 

 

We wrote shopping lists, recipes, designed our pancakes, measured out the ingredients correctly using scales and measuring jugs and even created a shop so we could sell them to Reception children!

The Tin Forest

Like all the other classes in school, this week we have been reading the Tin Forest. We did lots of wonderful things including descriptive writing, art and created some 3D flowers. These flowers will form part of a whole school display. We can’t wait to see what the other classes have created and how the finished display will look!

Thursday 7th March

 

Today was World Book Day and we had lots of exciting things taking place. We all dressed in our pyjamas and brought in our favourite bedtime story. We then shared our stories with Daisy Class. It was a great day!

Year 1 are very excited as they will be pairing up with Nursery children after half term to become their Reading Buddies smiley

Reading Buddies

We had a fantastic time on our school trip to Chester Zoo. We saw lots of wonderful animals and even listened to a special zoo keeper talk about elephants. We had great fun and learnt a lot! There were some very tired little people at the end of the day, and that was just the teachers!
