Making Friendships with our Peers

In March and April, we had new groups of children joining the 2-year-old provision room and these children have all settled very well.

At Hallfield School, children are provided with a different snack and a drink each day. Children enjoy snack time because it gives them time to make friends with their peers as well as getting to know the adults in the class.

This is what our snack time looks like…

Obstacle Games in Coding Club

The Year 3 and 4 lunchtime Code Club has been writing their own obstacle games where they have to jump over various objects to survive!

The odd part is having a one character walking but staying still while everything else on the screen rushes towards them. They are doing really well and getting some great code written!

Sir Mo Farah, the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history, visited Hallfield today to launch #RunWithMo as part of the Westminster Vitality Mile. The children were motivated by the messages that Mo gave about determination, resilience, positivity and perseverance in order to achieve your goals.

After speaking with the children in Years 5 and 6, Mo was then faced with the challenge of running the Daily Mile.

The children all said how inspiring it was to meet him and hear him talk so passionately about his journey to becoming world class athlete.

Who knows, the next Mo Farah may just come from Hallfield!

3D Shapes in year 5

We have been very busy learning about 3D shapes this half term, including classifying them according to their properties. We have practised visualising nets of 3D shapes and then using polydrons and cubes to represent them. Equally, we have explored rectangles and their lengths by finding perimeter.

Magnolia in Maths

Magnoli​a have been working with shape in Mathematics this week. We have been sorting different shapes to understand what a regular and irregular polygon is. Then we plotted these polygons on a grid and played a game similar to ‘Battle Ship’ with a partner.

Outdoor Learning in the Nursery​

We have been spending lots of time exploring in the outdoor area with the lovely weather we have had.

The children have been problem solving using the crates, first we used our imagination to build Mr. Gumpy’s boat, we then talked about how we can fit CHILDREN inside the boat instead of animals!

We have been really busy creating our own Investigation area, where we have been investigating minibeasts, fossils and plants. The children have been counting the petals on the flowers and talking about who has more.

We even found a real spider!!!!
Take a look at some of our amazing learning.
