First Week of Learning in Primary

In Nursery, they had lots of fun with their lesson in Maths where this week, they learnt about shapes. Students completed a shape hunt around the playground before completing a cutting and sticking activity. In English, they looked at Phonics Phase 1 letter and sounds. The focus was on the sound and action of 's'. Students completed a number of activities to show that they recognised the letter and were able to make the sound and show the action.

In Reception, some amazing imagination skills were used to create small-worlds.

In Year 1 Core, they completed the ‘Knowledge Harvest’. The students had the opportunity to show everything they know about buildings. The students were given big sheets of paper with different buildings on them. They were then asked to answer the following questions: - what is it made of?
- is old or new?
- what is it for?
- do people live in it?
- how many rooms does it have?
- is it a strong or a weak building?

In Year 2 English, they have linked out the topic ‘Buildings’ to their writing and they are learning all about the three little pigs. They did their cold task and wrote the story with no help from the teacher - they just watched a short video to help remind them of the story at the start. In Core, the children did the challenge of building a structure with 12 pieces of card and looked at different ways they can build and then the teacher showed them the one she has and they quickly caught on.

In Year 3 Science, the children met Bob the skeleton from the secondary science lab. They have been learning the scientific names for bones and where they are located in the body.

First few days back and the students in Year 4 are working really hard! They are doing some really tricky sums in their math classes right now, long multiplication and division! They played a game using their devices with a random number generator and a spinner! Students need to multiply or divide! This is a very difficult concept for some students so practicing at home would be very beneficial!

This week Year 6 has begun their new topic The Great the Bold and the Brave. A few of the activities have involved: creating buildings from Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome eras, researching life in Ancient Greece using various sources, and comparing the lives of those that lived in Ancient Athens and Ancient Sparta!
