Thursday 7th March - World Book Day!

Wow what fantastic costumes the children wore to celebrate World Book Day, they all look fantastic - thank you to everyone for making such a big effort! 

We started WBD off by taking photos of everyone and explained which book character we were. We then discussed some of the books that the children are able to buy using their voucher. The children then spoke to a partner about their favourite book and why. 

We swapped with Britto class to complete some WDB activities. The children who stayed with Miss Brook listened to 'The Tiger who Came to Tea'. we discussed what happened and what the children would do if a tiger turned up at their door. They then worked with children from Britto class to create a storyboard of the tiger's next adventure. They all worked really hard and created fantastic work! 

Those that went up to Britto worked on Babayaga. They created collages to show what they thought she would look like and described her using interesting language.

I’d also like to thank everyone who made a ‘Book in a Jar’. They’re all wonderful. We are looking forward to guessing the book tomorrow and then they will be displayed in the library for other children to guess the book.

Monday 4th March and Tuesday 5th March

A dramatic event took place at Longlands Primary School this morning. In the quiet area of the playground, there appeared to be an alien crash scene. There was a broken rocket, alien footprints and other weird and wonderful clues. The KS1 teachers were called out of assembly to assess the unusual debris that was left behind. The children became detectives to suggest who, what, why and how the wreckage came to be in the playground. Just WHO or WHAT might have landed there?

 

We used hot seating to discuss and develop ideas linked the crash site. The children were encouraged to use descriptive language, especially expanded noun phrases. We then created a class word bank, to help with the children’s incident reports. We focused on using our sounds to help with spelling unknown words and increasing our accuracy with the high frequency and common exception words.

27.2.19 - Bubbles!

 

We had a lovely afternoon out in the sunshine today! We were investigating the shape of bubbles and whether the shape can be changed by using different bubble wands. We started by making a round bubble wand using a pipe cleaner, which produced spherical bubbles. We then changed the shape of the wand and found out that the bubbles were still spherical. We saw larger bubbles, that started off elongated as we blew but as soon as the bubble was completed it turned into a sphere!

KS1’s Muck, Mess and Mixtures Art Gallery

On Wednesday, 13th February, KS1 had the pleasure to welcome parents and carers to our amazing gallery experience. The exhibition was the chance to celebrate all the hard work and achievements at the end of our ‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’ topic.

The art on display included collages which were a representation of the recipes for our own marvellous medicines. There were also some fantastic bubble art paintings to liven the senses. The children were encouraged to act as guides and talk about the inspiration and media used for their wonderful creations with the visitors. I'd like to say thank you to everyone who came to look at the children's work, the children loved having you in!

NSPCC Number Day - 1st February 2019

 

Wow! The children all looked fantastic in their mathematical themed outfits! A big thank you to the parents! The children spent the day creating posters about maths in the real world. They read some information and pulled out the key fact. Did you know that bees use hexagons in their hives? The children then used their presenting skills to share the facts they had learnt with the rest of the class. Well done Mitchell class for a wonderful number day!

The Natural History Museum

 

We had a fantastic day exploring The Natural History Museum. We started off the adventure by visiting the dinosaur exhibition. We were greeted with a life-size model of a T-Rex, roaring and moving. We were all amazed by the size of the dinosaur. We carried on and saw lots of fossils and models of different dinosaurs, including lots of facts and questions. One fact we learnt is that no-one knows whether dinosaurs were cold or warm-blooded. 

 

After the dinosaur exhibition we walked along to the marine fossil exhibition. We saw some of the fossils that Mary Anning found and this brought our learning to life. We measured one fossil using the children to see how long it was and we even saw Mary Anning! 

 

We also visited the blue whale. While we were in the exhibition, we were able to speak to some of the volunteers of the museum and learnt some more about fossils and sea creatures. We then visited the volcano and earthquake section, as this links to some of the learning about how dinosaurs may have become extinct. We all experienced an earthquake, which was scary! 

 

Overall, the children were excellently behaved and made me and the school very proud! Mitchell class would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents who kindly accompanied us on the trip! We had such a fantastic and enjoyable trip. Charlie described it as the best school trip ever!

Grant Koper's Story Telling!

 

KS1 were delighted to be visited by children’s author Grant Koper today! Grant gave an inspiring reading of his playful story, 'The Day Granny's Knickers Blew Away!' which told the tale of how one day Granny Moon's knickers blew off the washing line and became part of an exciting and unexpected adventure!


After his story, Grant invited the children to ask questions. Children raised hands to ask questions such as ‘How long did it take to write the story?’, ‘How did you think of the story?’ and ‘What will your next story be about?’. Finally, Grant gifted each child with a souvenir certificate to certify they had attended his story telling!

 

KS1 would like to say a big thank you to Grant Koper for visiting Longlands Primary!

Please be advised, in an aim to improve phonics and spelling, we have stuck a word and sound mat into the front of everyone's English homework book, (it has also been stuck into their classwork book). Please encourage the children to use this on a regular basis, which will reinforced in school. The Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words (tricky words) need to be learnt in order to boost the children's confidence with spelling and writing sentences. 

Thank you in advance.

Many thanks in advance...

A visit from Sidcup Fire Station

 

As part of KS1’s Topic, ‘Bight Lights, Big City’ we have been learning about The Great Fire of London, we had a very exciting visit from Sidcup Fire Station, who arrived in their fire engine. After a talk about how the fire fighters help the community, they showed us the tools that they use to help save lives. The children experienced the sirens and lights up close. They were allowed to climb inside the fire engine to have a look around. They also had an opportunity to use the thermal imaging camera, which allowed them to see how fire fighters can find people in a building. Finally, the children were allowed to use the hose, which they all absolutely loved!

We'd like to say a huge thank you to the firefighters who came to visit KS1.

On Tuesday 19th September 2018, KS1 welcomed a very regal visitor to their Royal Tea Party. Unfortunately Queen Elizabeth II was otherwise engaged, nevertheless the children were not disappointed as Miss Owen (Queen of Longlands) was available to host the event. The children entered the hall to the sound of God Save the Queen and quickly settled, ready to receive their royal guest.

 

On Miss Owen's arrival, as a sign of respect for our esteemed visitor, the children stood quietly before they bowed and curtsied. Miss Owen opened the proceedings, reminding the children of why the Queen hosts a Royal Tea Party and who might be invited. The children then feasted on a banquet of posh sandwiches and luxurious biscuits.

 

The top table consisted of Miss Owen and three princesses (please note that the prince, who was also chosen at random, wished to dine with his loyal subjects!) used fine bone china whilst they chatted and dined together. The Royal Tea Party was a huge success due to parents and carers providing the posh nosh combined with the excellent manners of our KS1 children!

Thank you everyone from the KS1 team.

A sincere thank you to the parents and carers who have returned their voluntary contribution for the school fund. As a staff team, we felt it was important for you to know that the funds really will allow us the opportunity to make a positive impact on your child's learning. smiley

Bright Lights, Big City... our learning stimulus for this half term.

Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London! This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city.  Help your child prepare for their project by visiting big cities- very exciting places! Why not visit a local city to spot interesting vehicles, buildings and landmarks? Alternatively, you could search the web for images, information and film clips about London and keep a scrapbook of your findings. You could also visit the local library to see if you can find some colourful books of nursery rhymes and traditional songs to enjoy together.

We are celebrating St David's day on Friday 1st March by wearing yellow t shirts to school.
