Welcome to a very busy year in Poppy Class, we have lots of exciting learning experiences planned for this year! If you follow the link below you will discover some of our activities for the Autumn Term
Autumn Term 1
The children had a great time at Chester Zoo and even though it rained, it didn’t dampen our spirits! We got to see all the different animals that we have been learning about. Our favourites were the giraffes and the hornbill!
Adopt a Reading Buddy Puppy!
Today we adopted a puppy!
Miss Walsh thought that we are such good readers and love reading so much that we should adopt a puppy and read to it every night. We get to take our puppies home and we promised to read to them every night for at least 15 minutes. We are then going to share all the lovely stories we have read to our puppies with the rest of the class! 🐶😊
Playground Buddy Training
Today was a very exciting day as Poppy Class took part in Playground Buddy Training.
Our Playground Buddy scheme plays an important part in creating a safe, friendly, happy and peaceful environment for children during lunchtimes. Their role is to help and support the lunchtime supervisors to ensure the children in Foundation Stage and KS1 are safe and happy.
Year 5 children have been selected to be Playground Buddies this year and today Poppy Class helped them in their training. We met our buddies and they explained what their role is. They then taught us some exciting new games that we can play at lunchtimes. We are so excited for our new Buddies to join us on the Key Stage 1 playground.
Wednesday 5th June
We has a fantastic day at Chester Zoo. We got to see lots of different animals, went on a boat ride and played in the park! We also got to step back in time and visit the ‘Predators’ exhibition which was full of fearsome animatronic animals from the prehistoric world. We came face to face with a massive megalodon, a dangerous dire wolf, a scary sabre tooth tiger and a terrifying T-Rex. It was very exciting!
Monday 29th April
Today was a very exciting day! We had some very special visitors from ‘Boo’s Zoo 2 You’ who brought along some VIP’s. We got to meet lots of different animals including meerkats, pythons, a skunk, millipedes and owls. We got to meet each animal and learn all about what they eat, where they live and any special features they have. We had so much fun!
Tuesday 26th March
Today we had a visit from St Oswald’s Church and they told us all about the Easter Story.
Friday 22nd March
This week we have been estimating, measuring and recording volume and capacity.
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!
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!
Tuesday 5th February
For Chinese New Year we cooked and tasted some Chinese food. We tried noodles in sweet and sour sauce with spring onions and prawn crackers 😋
Happy New Year! Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely Christmas. Have a look at our Topic Letter to find out what we are learning this half term.
Happy Halloween 🎃
This half term we are learning all about the four different seasons. Today we went on an Autumn Hunt to see the different signs of autumn. Have a look at all the things we found in our school playground.
Our Local Area
Welcome to Poppy Class 2017-18
Trip to the park
To finish off our year in style we thought we would have a trip out to our local park. We had a lovely day playing games and having a picnic in the sunshine ☀️ 😎
Warrington Toy Museum
We had a fabulous day at the Warrington Toy Museum where we learnt all about different types of toys. We looked at old and new toys and even made our own cup and ball toy!
Our topic this half term is Toys. For homework we have been designing and making some toys of our own. Some children have worked really hard and produced some fantastic toys and brought them in to show the rest of the class. We even had a go at playing some of their board games!
Tuesday 12th April 2018
We were visited by a Science Boffin and took part in lots of exciting experiments and a workshop. During our workshop we learned all about plants. We found out how roots take in water and about the life cycle of a plant. We also discovered how bees pollinate flowers. We had great fun!
Poppy Class Assembly
Poppy Class have been working hard this week rehearsing for our Amazing Animals assembly. Today they out on a fabulous performance that we were all proud of. Don't we look great in our animal head pieces?
