Neverland is taught by Mrs Breese (Mon & Tues-am) and Miss Henry (Tues-Fri).
We are supported by our teaching assistant Mrs Garcia.
Raft Building Challenge
To avoid the troll under the bridge the children decided the Billy Goats could travel across the river to the meadow on a boat. However the goats had eaten everything in the field and were only left with paper straws and pipe cleaners.
To be successful the teams had to build a raft to hold a 10g weight for 10 seconds.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
To start the new year Neverland are focusing on traditional tales. This week our class book is 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'. After reading the story and practicing the repeated phrases we had a go at making our own plays and performing them to our classmates!
The last two weeks of term have been very busy and full of fun for the staff and children in Neverland. We had two wonderful performances of our Christmas Play - a huge thank you for all of your support! We had a Christmas themed family Stay & Play and finished off with our Christmas party! Here are some of the highlights...
When the Ice Trolls came to stay.
There was lots of excitement in Neverland when the Ice Trolls came to stay! We began by exploring the features of hot and cold places.
The Ice Trolls come from a very cold country, we recognised that if they came to our country they would melt! So we conducted an investigation to find the best material to make coats to keep the Trolls cold.
Lots of fine motor skill activities this morning to strengthen our fingers for writing. 'Suspend' is our favourite game at the moment, it gets very competitive as you see from our pictures!
BBC Children in Need - Do Your Thing!!
Lots of excited children in Neverland this morning!
We have been learning about some of the charities supported by Children In Need and enjoyed Pudsey's Fundraising story.
We had an incredible morning with the firemen from Cumbria Fire and Rescue. They spoke to us about some of the very important services they provide in the community and about fire safety in the home. We even got to explore the equipment on the fire engine!
Childrens University - Bonfire Night Safety
Mae has been taking part in and enjoying a variety of activities as part of the Children's University. She has made this fantastic poster to remind us all to stay safe this Bonfire Night. Well done Mae!
As part of our Remberance Day activities Mrs Hodgkins has asked all of the children in school to make a poppy for a very special display.
We all had a spook-tacular time at last night's disco!
Here we are exploring how to use a part-whole model. We then used our part-whole models to write our own addition sentences!
PE - Dance
Check out our dance moves! A big thank you to Sam our dance coach, we had a great time!
Art & PSHE - Keith Haring
We have been learning to look for emotions in art, to do this we have been exploring the work of Keith Haring.
Keith Haring was born in 1958 and grew up in Pennsylvania, America. He was an artist and sculptor. He created 'pop' art using cartoon like figures and displayed them in public places all over the world.
Stay and Play
Our first Stay and Play session of the new school year was very busy! Lots of family and friends came to create Keith Haring inspired masterpieces using our dance pose photographs from the day before!
Maths in action! We have been learning how to order numbers and quantities from smallest to greatest. We also looked for numbers that are in between. As you can see we support each other in our learning and can ask our friends for help!
