This afternoon Year 1 have been hatching some dinosaur eggs!
Over the past few days we have been making dinosaur nests with our junk modelling materials for a special surprise and today we all got our own dinosaur egg to look after.
We put the egg in a cup with some water and then made predictions about what we thought might happen!
‘I think the water will change colour’ – Rino
‘The egg might dissolve in the water’ – Ezra
‘The egg might break and crack and there will be a dinosaur inside’ – Emanuel
We are all very excited and will be keeping a close eye on our eggs over the next couple of days.
Check back to see what happens!

This week’s home learning is all about division.
Use the examples to help you share the numbers equally into two groups. What items around your home can you find to count with? Can you write the number sentence for your maths? Can you think of a number story?
As a challenge can you try trickier numbers of your own? Can you equally share the numbers into 3 groups?
Don’t forget to access Bug Club and Mathletics at home to extend your learning further!

1G have been diving into our Dinosaur topic!
We have been making close observations of dinosaurs to produce sketches, paintings and paper plate dinosaurs!
We have used our new palaeontologist skills to ‘dig for fossils’ and create different tools using junk modelling materials.
We have been reading dinosaur books to find out information and then we made our own.
We have also been learning lots of facts about our favourite dinosaurs.
Check back in soon to see what else we get up to!
Wow – we are so happy to see the playground full of smiling parents, plates full of food and even a little sunshine too!
We were thrilled to have representation from so many parts of our school community – from Somalia to New Zealand and beyond…
Delicious food from around the world – thanks to everyone who made a contribution.
This week’s home learning is to research you family tree, just as we did with the Tudors this week. How far can you go back? Can anyone beat me with 4 generations of Fosters?
Remember, you are expected to have your home reading record signed twice every week. This can be either be based on your Guided Reading text or a book of your own choice and could involve reading the text, summarising the main events from your book so far or discussing an element that you find particularly interesting or didn’t quite understand with someone else. Remember to note down any vocabulary which you found challenging or inspiring in your Reading Record so you can try and use it in your writing next week.
Mathletics has activities based on the addition and subtraction of whole numbers which we have been learning about in our maths lesson. Use your personal log in details to help extend your learning further.
Next week, we will be looking at multiplication. Which times table are you currently working on? What strategies are you using to share with the rest of your class?
This is a painting of Henry VIII and Queen Anne Boleyn.
What do you think is happening in this scene? What do you think they are both thinking?
