Welcome to Class RHM
Welcome to our class page.
There are 28 wonderful children in our class and our teachers are Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs McDowell. We are lucky to have Miss Williams and Mr Bramall helping us every day too. We hope you will enjoy looking at some of our learning activities through the information on this page.
Our topic for term 5 is Growing and changing.
We will be using class texts of Jasper's beanstalk, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Titch and Jack and the Beanstalk to inspire our learning. We are really looking forward to the warmer spring weather and observing the changes in our outdoor environments. We can't wait to get planting things in the vegetable beds!
Our church school value is Forgiveness which we begin to look at through the Bible story of the lost son, from Luke, Chapter 15.
Please check back on our page for updates about what we have been up to!
This week the children have enjoyed finding out more about their school. They have been exploring and even discovered that our school has an upstairs! We have talked about what all the different rooms share used for and the children made some brilliant comments about what they could see. They loved looking outside of Mrs Hodson's window, "I like the office as you can see out of the window and see our scarecrow!" They enjoyed being able to look out of different windows because, "there are lots of nice things to look at" and "I like the outside as it's small and then gets bigger!" The children also explored the library for the first time making comments such as "we like the library because we like to read books."
The children thoroughly enjoyed a trip to space this morning. The classrooms were transformed into alien planets while the children were in the hall getting there spacesuits on and launching their rockets. When they were allowed onto the planet they were given space kits to record their findings. They investigated moon rocks, alien slime, planets to name just a few of the activities that were on offer. The children were all super excited and motivated about their learning.
This afternoon we were really lucky to have some firemen visit us from RAF Coningsby. They brought in lots of their equipment to show us and explain to us how they use it. They let us try on some of their clothes, "they were really heavy!" The children listened really well and asked lots of good questions!
Ahoy there shipmates! This term in RHM and RPS we have been learning all about pirates and mermaids! We have been following the story of The three little pirates! In the story the mermaid finds a moonstone and the children have loved using their imaginations about what they would do if they found a moonstone that could grant them any of their wishes. We have made treasure maps and made them look old. We have made pictures with sand and a big pirate ship in our outdoor area to name just a few of the activities we have done. We have also made broccoli and basil soup that lots of the children really enjoyed! The children have loved this topic and are really looking forward to making pirate biscuits for our Enterprise Fair.
World Book Day!
We had a brilliant time dressing up for World Book Day. We shared our books and enjoyed a story read to us by a different teacher. Later some parents came to read with the children.
We were very pleased to see sunshine this afternoon and headed down to the Mystical Garden. The children had requested that we take the cars and diggers down with us and they had a great time with those excavating the big rocks. The children enjoy the freedom and the chance to work on their gross motor skills when in the Mystical Garden.
