Welcome to the Cubs News!
This term our topics are Superhero's, Science Week, People Who Help Us and Easter.
At the end of February we celebrated a science week throughout school. Every class chose scientific experiments to explore and investigate. As our topic was super heroes we used our TASC wheel to invent, design and make our own super hero capes/. We had to test materials to find out which would be the most waterproof and durable. We shared our findings with Mr Manders-Jones and the rest of the school. The Jaguars came to see what we had been learning and we had the opportunity to share our experience with them. We also had lots of mini experiments set up around the classroom to ex had a fantastic week and we all learnt lots about science.
World Book Day
People Who Help Us
In our next topic we learnt all about people who help us. We had a visit from Nurse Nicole, PC Wright and PC Caruana. They explained all about their jobs and their day to day activities. We also had the chance to ask them some questions that we had already prepared. With the nurse we all had a go at bandaging a teddy bear and listening into a stethoscope. With the police men, we all had a go at sitting inside the police car and listening to the sirens going off. We listened to the police airways and we also saw the police stinger, that catches the baddies in cars. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our visitors and would like them to come again!
The WoW Sheet is a way for you to record those moments when your child says or does something that makes you think "wow"!
We are always interested in any special moments that the children experience in their home environment.

Quotes from the Children
Here are some links to some games we like to play at school:
This is a website full of phonics games for all phases.
Lots of practical and fun games to play.
Fun learning through play helps children achieve Foundation stage goals. Teach 3-5 year olds, initial sounds, colours, compare and order, counting, matching and mouse skills at home.
Phonics games will help your child to practise sounding out words, which will help them to read. Initially, children will learn basic letter sounds, such as "c-a-t" for "cat". Later they will move on to sounds such as "th", "sh" and "ch", then "oo", "oa" and so on. Once they recognise a few basic letter sounds, they will be able to work out what a written word says for themselves, a skill which they will be very proud to show off!
Counting. matching and ordering maths games

Hello, my name is Paddington Bear and I am from darkest Peru. I was found at Paddington station by Mr and Mrs Brown and that is how I got my name. I am a very kind and loving bear and my favourite food is marmalade. I like to spend my time having adventures with people who are helpful, polite and always try their best. If you like, you can take pictures of our time together, but YOU must write about our adventure in my book so I can keep it full of wonderful memories Try your hardest to sound out your words and write on the lines. If you take me home on a Friday, please return me to school on a Monday and if I go home on a Monday, please return me to school on a Friday.
Let the adventures begin!
