It’s been another busy week in Apollo!

On Monday, we watched a film clip of Mrs Meeks making bread in her kitchen at home. We put the strips in order and talked about the instructions for making bread. 

Then we made the bread in groups, following the instructions. We remembered what we had learnt last week about Time Words and used these to help us get the steps in the right order. The bread smelt delicious when it was baked. 

On Tuesday afternoon we all walked to Elm Bank Care Home to celebrate Harvest Festival with the elderly residents. We talked about what Harvest was, how it is celebrated and why it is important to Christians. 

We all sang ‘Harvest Samba’ and ‘Cauliflowers Fluffy’ and then had the opportunity to share our instruction writing on ‘How to make bread’. As a special gift, we made bread to take with us and passed it to the residents to enjoy. 

In maths this week we have been focusing on using Numicon and Diennes to add numbers together. We used a 100 square to look at how to add 10 to a number and did this with the equipment as well as jumping up on a number line in a jump of 10 to check. 

In Science, we have continued to learn about mammals and animals which lay eggs and have been drawing animal life cycles. 

Next week, weather permitting, we will be walking to the library and then visiting the museum and the Alfred East Art Galley, before returning to school. The Parish Church have kindly offered to let us have our lunch there, so if you could pack the children a lunch which will make as little mess as possible, that would be great! 

If they could also bring a carrier bag with them, to put in any books they take from the library, that would also be great. 

Please note, that any birthday treats brought into school, will no longer be given out by the staff. We urge you to try and keep to our Healthy Eating Policy and that parents and children take responsibility for this.
