This week has been another lovely week in Creswell we have had many smiles. In maths we have started to look at shape, we have been looking at 2d shapes and their properties. The pupils really enjoy our together time at the start of maths and working in a group attention in these sessions has been fantastic.
In English the pupils explored the poem by Michael Rosen 'I was born in the stone age' this saw the pupils looking for key features and looking at the name and photograph of the author.
We have built some stone age houses out of clay and straw the pupils were very good at following instructions and their builds were a great recreation of the first ever homes.
In Creswell we have added some lovely new sensory items and these have been welcomed by the pupils especially our black out tent and the new illuminated chalk boards. Some happy smiling faces all round.
Week ending 18th September
End of week 3 is here and the students have had a lovely week all very settled and calm. We have started to look at subtraction in maths and this will continue for a few weeks. In English we have been looking at rhyming words and trying to get the children to hear words with the same sound at the end. our book for our topic 'walking with our ancestors' has been 'The stone age boy'. We have made a stone age musical instrument and looked at modern day vs the stone age.
In science we have been looking at DNA and inheritance so this has seen the pupils looking at themselves and home learning of looking at family members to see any similarities, resemblances.
Creswell have had their own cafe with the pupils handing out cups and plates and other pupils helping make toast. it was a lovely time to come together .In the afternoon we take time to calm and focus, the children really enjoy our gong sessions.
Week ending 4th September.
Welcome back Creswell, how fantastic to see you all back at school. Over the past few days we have focused on settling into our new routine and I am so proud of all the children, they have settled in beautifully. It has been a strange year for everyone and I know there were many mixed emotions but the children are amazing and have taken it all in their stride. So once again welcome back Creswell pupils and families.
Over the up coming weeks we are working around the theme 'walking with our ancestors' the first stop is the stone age, there is a fantastic book available to watch online called 'The stone age boy' we will be looking at housing, food, materials and incorporating into our core lessons.
