We all really enjoyed the performance. It was set in Tudor times.
A big thank you to everyone who has donated to Children in Need today. Well done to the school council who organised the cake stall. You did a fantastic job. We raised £400 for Children in Need, a fantastic amount going to a very worthy cause.
‘Go Green Day’ activities – Nigel talked to us about ways that we can help to save the rainforests. He told us a story and brought in his two toucan friends. We all helped to act out the story.
We explored the outdoors finding objects that matched different colour shades.
We talked about recipes being sets of instructions for making different foods. We carefully read and followed a recipe to make Rainbow Jelly.
We practised recognising and writing numerals correctly using a game on the Interactive Whiteboard to help us. It showed us the perfect way to form each numeral.
We enjoyed preparing ‘Sponge Bob’ for going on his Half Term holiday.
We hope you have all had a lovely holiday too!
‘Write Dance’ activities
We have great fun learning different stories and then developing our mark-making skills by making different movements with our bodies.
We love it when ‘Wally’ and ‘Dina’ visit! They have been teaching us to ‘Show 5′ -
1. Eyes on the teacher
2. Mouth closed
3. Ears open
4. Hands in lap to concentrate
5. Criss-Cross Applesauce legs – this is our favourite!
Look how well we can ‘Show 5′…
This week we are making our own handprints to help us remember the ‘Show me 5′ rules’
Here are just a few of the activities that Lower Foundation Phase children have been busy enjoying.

Relaxing with a story in the Reading Area.
In class we have been using a website to explore how the world is shown as a map. Use the link to go and play Holey Moley in lesson 1. How good can you get at working out where she will appear?! http://www.digital-week.info/education/mapping_our_world/mapping_our_world/l/home/index.htm
The Welsh Government provide schools with additional money called the Pupil Deprivation Grant. Schools have to make their plans to spend this money available. The format of the plan is provided by the Local Authority. If you would like to see how we have planned to spend this money please see the PDG document which is attached to this post.

After reading the story ‘Jack and the Baked Beanstalk’ our class enjoyed completing a variety of mathematical activities.
We counted baked beans and wrote the corresponding numerals using chalk.
We practised forming our numerals correctly in baked bean juice and played a game where we had to throw a ball into large baked bean tins. Each tin was labelled with a number and Numicon shape.
We kept a score of the totals on our chalk board outdoors.
We all had great fun whilst developing our mathematical skills. Thumbs up!
