Spring 1

What a fabulous science week at Westerhope!

 

Westerhope was so privileged to be asked to look after an antique picture by the very famous Monsieur Riley. The children had been admiring the VERY expensive and beautiful painting all week when suddenly, out of nowhere, early Thursday morning the painting went missing!

 

The children of Westerhope worked together on a Westerhope mission to gather clues to bring the mischievous thief to justice! Reception children hunted high and low for finger print clues. The carefully gathered the prints and organised their findings in to a graph. What did the graph tell us? Well, the children soon discovered that the most popular finger print found around school would lead us nicely to the culprit, and so it did...

 

A line up parade took place at the end of the day Friday and low and behold the unsuspecting thief was Mr Devlin!

 

 

Our Reception and Key Stage 1 disco is in full swing!

A snap shot of our busy learning morning in Reception! We love our school days so much!

The children have been introduced to our new science investigation station today which explores our key science topic question ‘How do polar animals keep warm?’

Look at this magnificent masterpiece we have in school! Mr Outterside visited Reception class today to talk about the painting. We hope this picture stays safe in our school...watch this space!

Super maths learning of recognising, creating and describing patterns and shapes this shape. Well done to all of our wonderful, dedicating little learners! We are always so proud of you all.

As part of our phonics international learning in school, the children are supported in using the English Alphabetic Code. We hope this is helpful in support learning at home too.

Science Week next week and we are all ready and excited to celebrate and add lots of our investigation learning to our science learning wall!

Look at this wonderful writing learning space, which has been loved and used very much today!
