Welcome to Sprout Class: Reception, 1 & 2
Mr. Batchelor is the class teacher for Sprout class. He is supported by Miss Trowbridge, Mrs Wyatt, Mrs Hyatt and Ms Darroch.
Sprout class is made up of Reception children, Year 1 and Year 2 children. We are a class who are interested in finding out more about our world and use our interest in what is happening around us to develop our knowledge and understanding. We love learning new skills and enjoying new experiences. We use these to make connections between our learning.
On World Book Day, we had a wonderful time dressing up as words! We had a parade to celebrate and explain the definitions of our chosen words. After that, the children got to chose a book which was read by an adult.
On Monday 28th February we celebrated our 100th day of the school year. As part of our celebrations, we explored what we new about the number 100. We made crowns with 100 gems on, made necklaces with 100 (cheerio) beads, made pictures with the digits from the number 100 and predicted what the world would be like in 100 years.
We all enjoyed learning about this big number!
During RE day, we had a brilliant time, exploring spirituality and water. We looked for links between humans, planet earth and God (we are made of water, Planet Earth is made of water, God is made water). We shared some Bible stories, including the creation story and the story of Noah, and explored spirituality and water across different areas of the curriculum. These included, creating music based on how water makes us feel, art inspired by our relationship with water, stained glass windows based on conserving water, writing poems about water and how it makes us feel and how it linked us to God. We also explored our School Vision of Let Your Light Shine.
