Reception: Fairytale Ball

Children in Reception completed their mini topic of Cinderella with a Fairytale Ball. They were resplendent in their outfits and took to the role of prince and princess with ease. During the afternoon, the children joined in a wedding celebration just like Cinderella and her Prince Charming before taking to the dance floor for some ballroom dancing. The children rehearsed a dance routine and danced to the classic 'Bolero', twirling their partners with a flourish. Here, the princesses found their handsome princes. They ended their day with a wedding celebration cake that they had baked and decorated.

It was a truly enchanting day and, luckily, not one princess lost their glass slipper!

Congratulations to all the wonderful children who made an extra effort last week.


Year 1: Reading Corner

The children in 1FB use the opportunity to read a book in our reading corner as often as they can. They love the finger torches as this seems to help them concentrate!

Year 3 Maths: Perimeter

Year 3 have thoroughly enjoyed a brand new term in Numeracy recently: Perimeter. The children have discovered not only how to calculate the perimeter from shapes with given lengths, but also to measure all sides of shapes and objects around the classroom and then calculate the perimeter independently. Year 3 put their new skills to the test with an exciting 'dinosaur enclosure perimeter investigation'. They were given 6 clues about the enclosures e.g. 'This dinosaur needs an enclosure bigger than 180.5m'. Then they were given a wide range of enclosures and had to calculate each perimeter and carefully match it with its correct dinosaur owner.

Well done to all magnificent mathematicians for helping the dinosaurs find their correct homes!
