Reception Goodall Summer Term 2018 Week 2

This week we started our topic on FOOD.

We read Zed’s Bread which gave us instructions for making bread rolls and told us about different sorts of bread.

We used the instructions to make our own bread for our picnic on Thursday

Mrs Henson showed us how to knead the bread and then we made our own.

In Maths we measured the length of different breads to find out which was long and which was short.

We measured with non-standard units like cubes as well as standard units like centimetres.

On Thursday we joined with Nursery and Reception Edison to have a picnic.

Everyone brought some food to share and after eating we sang some Food songs.

Sharing and enjoying the picnic

Kajus was our Reading Champion reading 17 times.

Roman was our Writing Champion for writing a sentence independently.

We had 24 children who read three times or more at home this week.

Norfolk Welcomes Day

20.04.2018

On Friday 20th April, Lakenham Primary School will be taking part in Norfolk Welcomes, a day of action in schools across the county celebrating and exploring the many contributions that people seeking sanctuary have made to Norfolk.

Norfolk has a long and rich history as a place of sanctuary and refugee communities have contributed enormously to our shared culture and heritage. One focus for Norfolk Welcomes this year is football. Pupils across the county will discover how refugees have made a mark on the beautiful game locally.

Norwich City FC are supporting the event in recognition that the club’s emblem and nickname ‘The Canaries’ is a legacy of refugee migration into Norfolk.

Football is a great way for people from different backgrounds, speaking different languages, to come together in friendship, and in that spirit we are proud to be joining the many other schools across Norfolk taking part in this event.

We will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday and pupils are welcome to wear either a football strip or green and yellow, and make a suggested donation of £1. All the money donated will go towards New Routes, to provide short-term financial support to refugees and asylum seekers, and Welcome Wheels, a project which aims to provide recycled second-hand bikes and training to refugees in Norwich.

In Maths we compared the capacity of three containers then measured it using cups full to find which held the most and which held the least.

 

The highlight this week was the Egg Drop Competition.

18 children from Goodall brought in their many and varied designs, and 11 out of 18 succeeded!

We had great fun counting down, dropping them from the first floor  and then checking to see if the eggs had cracked.

Well done to everyone who took part.

Ready, steady, GO!

In Maths we focussed on more and less than numbers to 12.  We used the groups of animals from The Gigantic Turnip story and found the numbers that were 1 more and 1 less than them.
