Getting into Hogworts

We received a message from Harry Potter saying they were looking for more witches and wizards to join them at Hogworts. We decided to write to Harry Potter to say what sort of witch or wizard we wanted to become, for example; mean, evil, friendly or helpful.

In the afternoon Harry Potter sent us a letter to say we had all been accepted into Hogworts and had been sent a treat to celebrate!  It looked yucky but was very yummy when we tried it!
What sort of witch or wizard did you write on your hat?

Room on the Broom

We talked about witches and wizards and decided that they were sometimes evil, mean and nasty, casting spells to turn people into frogs.  We listened to Room on the Broom and decided some witches are kind, friendly and helpful.
Did you make a witch?

Number Fun

We have been having lots of fun counting spiders onto their webs!
How many spiders did you count onto a web?

This week we have enjoyed the story of Pinocchio.  When he told lies his nose grew very long but when he was very kind and helpful he turned into a real boy.
We had a go at painting Pinocchio, learning to be really careful in how we drew and then painted him.

Well done Kandinsky

We got a certificate in assembly today for having 100% attendance last week, that means we were all in everyday last week.  This means we get to sit on the benches next week at the back as a reward.  Let's see if we can get 100% this week too!

We had a surprise PE lesson today with Adam.  We moved around the hall in different ways, played some games and had to stop a ball with different parts of our bodies.  We were ready for a drink of water when we had finished!
What did you enjoy doing the most?

Slippery Snake

Today we learnt the letter 's.'  We have listened to lots of stories about spiders and realised the word starts with the 's' sound, also Sophie, Sarah and Summer!  We then looked in a phonics book and found a snake, which reminded Mrs Borthwick of a song she knows.  We made snake shapes with our arms while we sang it. 
"Slippery snake sss,
Slippery snake sss,
Slippery snake sss, skip to my Lou my darling!"
Can you think of any more things that start with a s sound?


What a busy week we have had in Kandinsky Class this week!

Number Sentences

We have been practicing subtraction using frogs to help us.  First we sang '5 speckled frogs' and noticed that each time a frog jumped into the pool, there was one less on the log.  We then used the frogs to make our own sums, deciding how many frogs we were going to take away.
Can you make some number sentences using some toys from home?

Our Class Assembly

We really enjoyed practicing and performing our class assembly!  Our teachers are very proud because we all joined in and said our learning promise.
We hope you enjoyed it too!
