A hot and sticky week

This week in Maths we have been learning about Capacity. We have been using rice, water and sand to compare the capacity of several different containers. We have used our results to order the containers by their capacity. We have been using vocabulary associated with capacity to talk about our results.

These are some of the words we have been using for our maths talk this week; Measure, Fill, Full, Half full, Empty, Half empty, Nearly full, Nearly empty, Overflowing, capacity, Estimate, Most and Least.

In Literacy this week we have read the story Oliver’s Vegetables. We have retold the story ordering the foods correctly into the days of the week. The stories were so good that Mr Stones and Miss Shaw had to take a look to check that they had been written by Year 1’s!

Just a quick reminder that it is the Infant Sports Day on Thursday afternoon. Please can you check that they have the correct PE kit and that their trainers still fit.

We hope you all enjoy the school disco and have a lovely weekend.

Handa's Surprise

Well what a busy week! We have been reading Handa's Surprise and have done lots of activities linked with fruit. We have tasted all of the exotic fruits from the story, made healthy fruit smoothies and even done a seeds in fruit investigation in Science.

Please can you make sure your child has got the correct footwear for outdoor P.E. Sports day is coming up (Thursday 29th June) and we have been practising outside each week. We still have children without a pair of trainers or have pumps that are too small. Please can you check in their P.E bag. Thank you for your help in this matter.

On a sadder note, we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Harrington next week, as it is her last day on Friday 23rd June. She has got a new job to look forward to and we wish her all the best. She will be missed greatly by the staff and the children.

How heavy is it?

This week we have been using the weighing scales to find out how heavy things are. We have made dough snakes that are heavier or lighter than 10 cubes, weighed various classroom items using non standard units and we even weighed our slippers! We have tried to balance the scales with one item and cubes so that it weighs the same. We have had great fun!

An Introduction to Bradway Primary

Selected Quotes

"

Just wanted to congratulate the school and all those involved on yesterday's enterprise event.  It was a fantastic opportunity to raise funds whilst engaging the whole school in the initiative. Great to see such good ideas and some budding sales, marketing and advertising stars of the future! All the children seemed to be involved and enjoying themselves - I met some very persuasive sales teams and was impressed by the level of enthusiasm from staff and pupils alike.

My son has been excited about this all week, being very proud of his contribution and it was a pleasure to attend it with him. "
