Easter in Tiny Toes

April 15th, 2018

We had some super entries to the school Easter Bonnet competition.  All the children looked splendid and we really couldn’t choose between them so they will all share in the prize.  

The children also had fun making some Easter biscuits and creating their own baskets to carry them home in.

Mixed Maths Fridays in Croyde Class

March 27th, 2018

Did you that we do Mixed Maths every Friday?

Mixed Maths is our maths lesson for the day. The difference is that we get to move around the room revisiting and using different Maths Skills. Each week we have 5 different areas of Maths to explore. This could be number work, shape, fractions and many more. We work as a team and apply our maths skills so that we get the chance to use them regularly. Here are a few photos from last weeks Mixed Maths. At the end we talk about which skills we needed to use that day.

Remember to ask us all about it.

Visit us again soon

Croyde's visit to the National Marine Aquarium

March 27th, 2018

We had the most amazing day out at The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth. Before we visited, we learnt all about the different creatures that we were going to see. This helped us to identify them when we got there and understand more about them. There were different zones that we could visit and we even saw a diver in one of the tanks. Our visit concluded in the Atlantic Ocean Exhibit where we finally got to see Friday the Green turtle. This was the perfect end to a magnificent day. Back in class we have been using our visit in our diary writing and are in the process of making some sea related art.

We bought a shark to join our book corner because it reminded us of the lemon sharks that we saw.

Croyde also got a lovely book all about animal journeys by Patricia Hegarty.

Children also swapped classes to share stories and it was a wonderful day full of reading. School Council also prepared a special prize for their favourite costume.   It has been great to find out how children spent their vouchers.

What is your favourite story?
