December 2021

We had a very busy December full of lots of learning and Christmas fun! We took a trip to the theatre to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, had a lovely Christmas meal together, created lots of Christmas crafts and had a party! We also had a visit from Life Education and they taught us all about what our bodies need and how we can look after them. In English, we looked at non-fiction books to help us learn lots of exciting facts about the Great Fire of London and wrote our very own non-fiction information pages. In maths, we worked with numbers from 11-20 and looked at how we can represent them in different ways. In art, we drew and painted our Picasso self-portraits with lots of bright colours and interesting shapes.

October 2021

This month we have started to look at addition within the numbers 0-10. I have been very impressed with how well everyone has done at writing number sentences and creating part-whole models to represent them. In English, we have been learning all about different penguins from around the world and created non-fiction pages full of fun facts about them. We also worked together to create a poem by innovating the nursery rhyme ‘The Animals Went In Two By Two’. We are really enjoying learning about different animal groups in science and have continued to learn more about our local area and the people who help us within it in our topic lessons. We have put all our fantastic ‘People Who Help Us’ dance moves together to create our very own dance in P.E. and we designed and created Hundertwasser inspired houses in art. We also had lots of fun using the glockenspiels in Music and the spheros in Computing.

September 2021

our very own endings to the story. In maths, we worked very closely with the numbers 0-10. We counted forwards and backwards, ordered and compared numbers and learnt how to use a number line to help us. We investigated our five senses in science and explored which parts of our body are associated with each sense. We have also been learning all about our local area, we have created different dance moves for our ‘People Who Help Us’ dance in P.E. and we have looked at Hundertwasser’s colourful pieces of art to give us some inspiration for when we come to make our own houses.
We have had a very busy September! We really enjoyed reading Oliver Jeffers’ books in English, we rewrote his book ‘Lost and Found’ and created

English Week and World Book Day:
Recently, we spent a full week learning all about the book ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We really enjoyed learning all about this text and we completed lots of different activities based around the story. Blackpool Catering Services even came into school to help us create some amazing packed lunches. World Book Day also happened within this week and we really enjoyed dressing us as a character from our favourite book. Can you guess who we came as?

Maths Week:
In February, we had another special week here at Kincraig. The whole week was focused all around Maths. We spent lots of time looking at compass points, coordinates and even measurements. All of our activities managed to include our topic of Africa in some way too. Just look at our coordinate safari grid. Are you good at reading coordinates?

Our Class Assembly
To celebrate our new topic of learning, Amazing Africa, we created a class assembly to tell all of our parents and the rest of the school all the wonderful things we already know about Africa and just some of the fun and interesting facts that we have already learnt in the short time we have been studying Africa so far. We can’t wait to learn much, much more in the coming weeks. Roar!

Christmas Class Party
We also held a class party to celebrate all the fantastic effort and hard work that we had done throughout the Autumn term. We really loved all of the snacks, party games and even our visit from Santa.

Nativity
To celebrate Christmas and the birth of baby Jesus, we have recently been working hard to produce a whole school nativity. The part that our class focused on re-telling was where Mary and Joseph had made their way to Bethlehem before being told there was no room at any of the inns.

Post Office Visit
Just before Christmas, we spent time looking at how the Post Office and Postmen help us within our community. We learnt all about how letters are sent and delivered. We then took a trip to our local Sorting Office and were shown how they receive, sort, check and then deliver the letters and parcels as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Locality Walk

Halloween Disco
Oh my goodness! Something has gone bump in the night… Recently, we all attended the ‘Kincraig Spooky Disco’ to celebrate Halloween. We loved dancing to some fantastic songs and playing exciting games. Just look at some of the amazing costumes we all came in!

Nurse Visit
Recently, we had a visit from some local Nurses who came to talk to us about how they help people every day at work. They spent time discussing how we can keep ourselves healthy and avoid having to see Doctors and Nurses. They then spent time showing us how we are able to use and apply a variety of different bandages to protect wounds from germs and help them heal as quickly as possible.

Police Visit
As part of our People Who Help Us topic, Bispham Police came to see us and explained what their role is within the community. They spoke to us about how they can help us if we are in trouble or if we get lost. They also explained to us that sometimes people who are dangerous or do the wrong things have to be arrested. They even demonstrated this to us by putting Mr Bracegirdle in handcuffs.
