Welcome to Miss Rollins' Class
Miss Rollins, Mrs Hagues, Mrs Owen-Smith and Miss Holloway
We are so lucky to have such a wonderful class! The children are great friends and have some great choosings together. We love learning in our class and are very creative. We especially enjoy science experiments and are looking forward to learning about teeth and healthy eating this term.
This term we will be reading the Worlds Worst Children 2 by David Walliams.
In the book we will discover ten disgusting, disgraceful, dirty, devilish children. We will meet Humbert the Hungry Baby, who flattens his pram, munches his bodyweight in marshmallows, gobbles up the cat, a squad of police cars and even his mother. Fussy Frankie who never eats ranky danky rhubarb, or any fruit or vegetable, flinging them out the window at the flashing, fizzling nuclear power station up the road. we will also meet - Trish the Troll who squishes people, Cruel Clarissa, Competitive Colin and the infuriating No No Noe, who never says yes?
We love maths in our class and always try to make the lessons as hands on and as practical as possible! We will be working on securing those key maths skills such as place value, number recognition and counting this term. We have already been busy with the base 10 and Numicon resources to make numbers in lots of different ways.
Using Base 10 we were creating two digit numbers.
Are all your teeth the same? No! You need the right tooth for the job! Can you puzzle out which teeth bite, grip, tear, crush, grind and chew? This term we will learn their scientific names and the reason for their strange shapes.
We did an experiment with 6 boiled eggs and 6 different drinks (Water, Coffee, Fresh Juice, Squash, Energy Drink and Coke). We wrote a prediction of what we thought might happen to the eggs in our science book then left them for a week. After the week had passed we examined the eggs to see if our predictions were correct. We used eggs during this experiment as an example of what certain drinks can do to our teeth.
SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT THROUGH PLAY
We have some fantastic choosings in our class ranging from Frozen arctic explorers digging animals from the ice, to chess games, messy play and craft activities.
We encourage the children to develop their social skills through play and support this by joining them on their choosing activities to support well balanced play at their developmental stage not chronological age.
Play has an important role to a child's emotional growth, especially in social and guided play, children learn self-regulation as they follow norms and pay attention while experiencing feelings such as anticipation or frustration. Play also teaches children how to set and change rules, and how to decide when to lead and when to follow.
Mrs Owen-Smith and Miss Holloway have fantastic choosing ideas and love to join in with the children.
Our PE is on a Monday afternoon. Please send your child with their PE kit. A plain white T.Shirt, dark shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers.
