Welcome to Rosen's Class Page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Sheldon.
Did you know we are called Rosen Class after the author Michael Rosen? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books in class including 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt', Our House' and 'Blue'.
The children were very excited about taking part in Sports Day and couldn't wait to get out onto the field to begin! We had lots of parents, grandparents and friends watching and encouraging the children.
We had such a lovely time until 'rain stopped play!' The children really worked together in their teams and were encouraging each other which was lovely to see.
Outside Learning Day and Planting Day.
We have had such an exciting couple of days, learning and working outside. On Thursday 18th May we had a visit from a Park Ranger and we found sticks, leaves and grass to make a Bug Hotel. We also explored the school grounds learning how to balance and climb on the Key Stage 1 equipment. We visited the Wild Life Area and looked at the plants and had a story...we even found a house, I wonder who lives there?!
The next day was planting day and we had some of our grown ups come to help us weed and plant the flowers we had grown. Despite the rain we worked hard and did a fantastic job. The school looks amazing and we are looking forward to the plants flowering.
Lifecycles and Science.
This half term we have been learning all about lifecycles!! We learnt the Hungry Caterpillar story and discovered how it changed into a beautiful butterfly. We learnt about the lifecycle of a frog and enjoyed exploring some frog spawn. Children have been searching in the school gardens for minibeasts. During science week we did some really amazing experiments. We watched carnations change colour with food colouring, made a walking rainbow with paper towels and food colouring, turned dirty coins shiny and learnt about the importance of washing your hands before handling food....we watched bread turn mouldy! We ended Science week with a 'bang'. We went outside and made a Coke fountain by adding Mentos to a bottle of Coke and a 'volcano' using baking soda, food colouring, washing up liquid and white vinegar.
This year our theme has been all about under the sea. We have had lots of fun watching a play about sea creatures. We have made our own sea creatures using paint and collage. We have had lots of visitors too who have taught us lots of new skills such as playing recycled items to make music, learning a dance to the Beatles Octopus' Garden, and we had a lovely lady come to tell us a story about Pirates.
Please look at the photos to see what we have been doing.
What a busy month we have had! We have had lots of fun making decorations to decorate our classroom and some of our parents came too. We have celebrated with parties, parades and a Christmas lunch. We even had a very special visitor come and he gave us a present, so we must have been good and done lots of hard work! We also saw a play about elves and a naughty fairy!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you all on Thursday 5th January 2017!
Our first half term in Reception.
We have had a great start to Reception, getting to know our school, classroom, and grown-ups. We have made lots of new friends too. We have also become much more independent, we get changed for PE and go for lunch with our friends!
We have been learning about People Who Help Us. We thought about people who help us at home, at school and out and about. We also learnt about how to stay safe, which grown-ups we can ask for help if we have a problem and who would help us in an emergency. We had lots of visitors and really enjoyed having a sit in the police car and fire engine.
"Teaching is good. This is having a very positive impact on pupils' increasingly
successful learning.... Pupils feel safe because they know they are well cared for.
They behave well and have good attitudes to learning."
