St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 5

Mercury class have been enjoying our new enquiry ‘How do parts move?’. We have explored the traditional story of Little Red Riding Hood and learnt about story structure (beginning, middle and end) as Author Writers. We had a great day using resources to imaginatively re create the woodland setting and act in character to re tell the story.

As Engineers we learnt about mechanisms which make parts move. We explored levers, sliders and hinges in pop up books and in various places in school. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to design, make and review our very own moving picture of Little Red Hood and show it to the Nursery children. We will also learn the story of Little Red Riding Hood and change elements so that we can write our own versions of the story. Watch this space! 

Here are a selection of photos from our learning from this week (week beginning 17.05.21). As authors, we have enjoyed exploring traditional tales, learning the story 'Little Red Riding Hood', acting out the story, creating a story scene and exploring the structure of stories (beginning, middle, ending, characters, setting and plot). As engineers, we have been exploring hinges, sliders and levers. We explored these in our surroundings. Another successful week of learning in Neptune Class!

Neptune Class- 13.05.21: This morning, we launched our new enquiry 'how do parts move?' We received a very special video message from the Nursery children setting us a very special mission. This mission is to become engineers and writers and create a pop-up version of the traditional tale 'Little Red Riding Hood'. We enjoyed exploring a range of pop-up books and exploring how the parts moved.

Neptune Class enjoyed taking part in the NSPCC Number Day today (7.05.21). We enjoyed holding a 'digit parade', sharing facts about the numbers we are wearing; dancing and singing along to number songs; completing a number hunt, solving tricky maths problems and exploring the number 10. What super mathematicians we have been!

Neptune Class: Today we launched our new enquiry Where is my School? We found an alien crash landing with a letter asking us to tell them about our locality so that they can find our school on their next visit. We researched maps, atlases and Google Earth and went on a walk of our local area.
