Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

Busy bees 🐝


Over the past week, Room 6 have been very busy with their learning and wanted to share their favourite parts, this being our topic lesson, French and Health and Wellbeing.

In French, we have been recapping all that has been learned this year so far, such as greetings, feelings, numbers to 10, days of the week and months of the year. We have been getting better and better at remembering this vocabulary and have enjoyed having our class puppet, Franc, giving us new words to learn. On Friday, the focus was on French colours. First of all, we were exposed to crayon colours which helped us to match the word to the colour. Next, we had a whole class game of splat on the board to test our memory. We really enjoyed this! After we had practised the colours, we completed an animal colouring sheet and wordsearch on ‘Les Coleurs’. Room 6 love wordsearches! We look forward to using these new French words in our daily routines.

As part of our ‘Chocolate’ topic, we have been learning about the Tunnock’s factory which we were pleased to know isn’t far from the school at all. We had a discussion about Tunnock’s products and researched the website to see what other information we could find. We were most interested in a Tunnock’s Tea Cake and a Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer as most of us have tried at least one of these before. Thank you to everyone who has brought in Tunnock’s wrappers for our display board, our collection really does look amazing! We are looking forward to continuing our topic by looking at Fairtrade next.

We have been learning about how to have a healthy lifestyle in Health and Wellbeing this term. So far we have broken down ways to stay healthy and have looked at areas such as exercise and a balanced diet. Yesterday, the focus was on the importance of sleep and we definitely learned a lot. We found out that sleep can really affect our mood, growth and concentration. We also learned that children need on average about 11 hours of sleep a night while adults need less. We then discussed the best way to prepare yourself for bed by doing things such as dimming the lights, listening to calming music and reading a book. The most interesting part was the facts about some animals and their sleeping habits, we were shocked! Did you know that bats are nocturnal and sleep for 20 hours a day? Also, dolphins sleep for 10 hours a day but only rest half their brain at a time so that one side is always awake. They can even sleep with one eye open!
