Foundation Tennis Club had fun this playing battleships and learning to rally. The club congratulated Coach James on being awarded Devon Tennis's Chairman's Award and nominated as Coach of the Year.
During maths, the Foundation children started to explore the different ways to make 10. To begin with they identified that 10 1s made 10. Using Numicon they started to independently explore different ways to make 10 by placing differing plates on top of each other.
Our Foundation children have been investigating the impact that Meteors have on the surface of a planet. We have learned the words; gravity, crater and impact and talked about the different sizes and their effect.
The excitement was building when our Foundation scientists were predicting what would happen when gravity acted upon the paint traveling on the slide. It was an exciting investigation.
Children in Need
We raised a grand total of £452.12 for Children in Need! An absolutely incredible amount! Well done Elburton!
Popcorn in Phonics
We learnt the 'p' sound in phonics. To give our new learning a context we made popcorn. We had great listening skills when we listened to the kernels 'popping'. Sharing and eating the popcorn was nice too.
Foundation children made stewed apples. The skills learnt in this process were peeling, chopping, slicing, boiling and of course eating!
To encourage our Foundation children to select different food at lunchtime, other than a jacket potato! Our kitchen staff have cooked a selection of food for the children to taste during free flow.
We have a busy term coming up so we would like to make you aware of some important dates for your diary for this term and next year! Further information about these events will be given to you nearer the time. All parents are welcome to attend our PTA events and meetings.
