Goldilocks and the Three Bears Week 2
Find out all about our topics, special events, learning and amazing achievements over the last week!
Our Learning Journey this Week wb: 8.5.18
This week, the children were welcomed back to school after a long bank holiday weekend. We enjoyed continuing our story topic of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We have been using signs and actions to help us to learn new vocabulary. We learned the Goldilocks song and used actions to help us to remember it. Why not sing along and see if you can remember all of the actions?
In Literacy, we had a very exciting time completing challenges for Goldilocks and the Three Bears! Mummy Bear sent us some ingredients to make our very own porridge – the children tasted different toppings including raisins, banana, honey and jam! We then wrote the recipe to send to Goldilocks, so that she could make some new porridge for Baby Bear!
The children were also amazed to find a crime scene in their classrooms, and turned into detectives to find out who had broken the chair and eaten all of our snack! The children used their phonics skills to write up crime reports and used their own ideas to solve the mystery!
In Maths this week, we have been revisiting our learning on addition. We have been using Sign 4 Maths actions to help us to understand mathematical language such as ‘total’ and ‘addition’. The children really enjoyed exploring Goldilocks’ Sweet Shop, and using sweets to count amounts together and count on to add two amounts.
In R.E. this week, we have been reflecting on all of our learning about Pentecost and ‘Good News’. We talked about Ascension Day and how we could share Jesus’ good news of the Holy Spirit. To celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, we wrote special prayers for Jesus and sent them up to heaven on helium balloons.

This week's challenge:
Next week, we will be linking our learning to The Royal Wedding. We want the children to share their own experiences of weddings and family celebrations with the class. Perhaps they have been to a family wedding that they could share some photographs of? It would be fantastic if the children could draw or paint a picture of a wedding they have been to, or write about what they saw, what happened and what they did! We look forward to hearing all about it!
Don't forget to practise reading every day!
