Planting Beans in Science!
We enjoyed learning about Harvest Festival. The children were fantastic at suggesting other ways we can show we care about others. They loved discussing what they had donated from home and how it would be useful. Well done Haytor!

Home Learning for Haytor Children
From Monday 8th June, work for children who are learning at home is being provided centrally by the First Federation Trust. That work can be accessed by following this link: https://www.firstfederation.org/home-learning-2/ I am grateful that the Trust is providing this for our families as it will allow my staff to have a balanced workload.
The work is set by a team of experienced teachers from across the Trust. There is an email address for each year group. You should contact that email address for any queries regarding work set, to provide children's work for comment/assessment and for any support with home learning.
Miss Lewis or one the Chudleigh Knighton team are still here to offer pastoral support and we will be in contact with you each week to see how you all are. We can still be contacted via the class email address or by emailing the school office. Please do not contact with queries regarding work set centrally - any queries regarding that work should be sent to the provided email addresses. We will, of course, be very happy to see examples of all of the wonderful things that you and your children have been up to!
Phonics Play is offering a free service at the moment. This is a fantastic website that the children are all familiar with. It will support their phonics learning.
Please continue to use Bug Club, Spelling Shed and Numbots to support learning at home. Login details for your child can be found on the inside cover of their exercise books.

Digging Deep, Learning Together and Embracing Life to the Full!
Hay Tor have been reading 'William's Winter Wish' and inspired by the story they are working hard on their story planning and story mapping. The Year 1 children are reimagining and retelling the story for their next piece of writing. The Reception children really enjoyed reading through the Year 1 story plans. We can't wait to read the finished stories!
In Haytor, we have been thinking about how to have an effective discussion. The children and I worked together to create some 'Discussion Guidelines' to enable us to talk about what we are learning. They trialled the guidelines during our English lesson and found that when we followed them, our conversations were much more focused and everyone had the opportunity to share their ideas!
We've been learning about the parts of a plant!
I have now given all Reception Parents access to their child's Tapestry Learning Journal.
If you have any problems or questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me. If you would like to add another parent/carer to the account, please come and speak to me. I am more than happy to help.
We've been Counting and matching our numerals!
We had a Wedding! Some of the children were attending a wedding using the dressing up box and role play area.

Year 1 Nature Morning at River Dart Country Park
Year 1 children had an opportunity to spend a morning exploring at the Country Park. What amazing things they found.
What a lot of fun we had on Music Day. First we listened to a variety of music and drew pictures to reflect what we heard. We identified instruments and thought about how it made us feel. Then we moved to music on the playground, using it to inspire a battle dance. We made rainsticks and thought about rainforest music and finally learnt to follow a rhythm and beat, playing instruments to create Samba music.
Reception children performed an amazing assembly for their parents. Everyone spoke clearly and remembered their lines. Our pictures of our mums were amazing and the poems bought tears to a several eyes! Well done Reception.
We all enjoyed coming dressed as our favourite characters and discussing the books we liked the most. We made lots of spells and potions too!
We visited the farm and looked at a range of animals, including 5 new lambs, pigs, geese, chickens, ducks and a dog. We then had a nature walk around the site and found lots of interesting things.
Such a shame that this happened on a 'Snow Day'.
Haytor thought of some brilliant questions to ask our visiting farmer, learning all about what a 'day in the life of a farmer' is like.
We have been busy representing numbers with resources and also comparing the weight of objects this week, especially thinking about is they were heavier, lighter or equals.
