Mrs Carter Dunkery Class

Summer Term - 19th April 2018. Welcome back. The weather has been glorious so we have had even more opportunities to take our learning outside. Here are just a few photographs of their learning.

29th March 2018. Happy Easter! I hope you enjoy looking at the end of term celebrations, Easter and Viking day. The children have made up and acted out some fantastic adventures while being Vikings.

22nd March. The children enjoyed our visit to the church and asked some really interesting questions about the Christain celebration of Easter. Stuart ( the vicar) was very informative and was able to answer all their questions. He also commented on how well behaved our children were throughout the visit. Well done children!

16th March. We took advantage of the beautiful spring weather and began preparing the soil ready for planting next term. After all that digging we went on a very wet and slippery walk which challenged the children's balancing skills!

9th March 2018. Happy Mother's Day.

27th February 2018. The children have been making finger puppets to retell our story. We thought you would like to see their fantastic writing.

21st February 2018. Bike Ability. The children really enjoyed showing off their balancing skills!

7th February 2018. Thank you to Mrs Wilson and Miss Tuach for teaching our children a dance routine to the Scottish music 'Dashing White Sergeant' followed by a sword dance. The children throughly enjoyed it!

29th January 2018. Yoga - What a wonderful way to start our day! Although I found it difficult to capture the moves on camera the enjoyment on their faces is evident.

23rd January 2018. During outdoor learning Dunkery class had a go at writing their names using the Viking alphabet.

17th January 2018. The children have been busy making thier Viking longboats. They all worked very enthusiastically and shared the resources well. It was a joy to hear the excitement in their voices as they shared thier ideas.

Happy New Year! Our topic for this term is Vikings and these photographs show the children are really enjoying it already. The role play area seems to be a success.

15th December 2015 Merry Christmas Everyone. I hope you enjoyed our Nativity Sing Along!

14.12.2017 During outdoor learning we put the finishing touches to our bug hotel kindly made by Mr Lockwood. We were luck enough to see the ducks in the pond area although they kept swimming away from us!

30th November. During outdoor learning the children built some escape routes for our gingerbread man. They discussed their ideas and worked together to build bridges, boats and even a catapult! After they had finished working together with their friends they acted out their version using face masks.

20th November. Holdstone Class, year 3 children came into our class with Mr Kinch to support our children's learning. They used different coloured multi link cubes to add two groups of objects together before recording the number sentence. Dunkery class really enjoyed being taught by our 'young teachers'.

14th November 2017. Thank you to everyone who came along to our light and dark evening. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

3rd November 2017. The children have enjoyed using their senses when making a fruit salad as part of our topic 'What makes us human'. They touched, smelt, looked at and chopped the fruit before tasting it. The children were very engaged, even when they had to wash their hands several time that morning!

16th October 2017. We have been looking at 2D shapes and describing their properties. The children have enjoyed finding shapes in the school environment.

9th October 2017. The children have enjoyed our topic, 'What makes us human?' They have been making skeletons from playdough and drawing around each others bodies before using natural resources to add the bones.

2nd October 2017 As part of out literacy lesson we followed a recipe to make our birthday cakes. The children were excited to use the eggs collect from our school hens and enjoyed weighing out the ingredients. I think the children all enjoying eating the cakes at the end of the day.

What makes us human? The children enjoyed taking their finger prints, even if it was a little messy!

Welcome to our class. Here is a selection of learning in the first two weeks. As you can see, we are having fun!
