Our week in Crew Thiede 3.5.21

We have had such a lovely start to May! The children have worked so hard.

Maths week for NSPCC

We have had lots of fun this week exploring number! We started the week by counting how many pieces of fruit we need in a smoothie!

They were so yummy. We like how they tasted sweet and fruity. We also got to talk about colours, the children suggested which fruits made our smoothie green and were surprised to hear that it was a vegetable!

We have also been working as a crew to represent numbers using ourselves! The children used their counting skills to get into groups of different amounts.

Our maths has been so exciting, even Farmed Duck wanted to get involved! He sent us a letter and a list asking for some maths equipment! The children counted out the items ready to send to him!

Crew Challenge

How many numbers can you spot over the weekend? See how many numbers are in your environment and bring a picture to school on Monday to show your crew!


Oliver – after a tricky week Oliver got to green today! He blew the adults away with his recall of Farmer Duck, ‘How goes the work?’

George and Charlotte – when asked why we sit in a circle George shared that it is what makes us special and Charlotte said this is what makes us a crew.

Rose and Thomas – the adults in Crew have seen a big change in these two this week. There confidence is really starting to shine through!

Our week in Crew Thiede 26.4.21

It’s been a busy week in Crew! The children have worked so hard.

Crew 👫🏻

We have been helping each other on the trim trail this week, practicing our balancing skills and building on our teamwork. We also worked outside to build a box, it was really tricky to match all the parts together but we got there by working as crew.

The trees have also began to blossom! We have been smelling the beautiful flowers and looking at the colours!

We have been focusing on kindness this week! We have been showing our new crew mates how we achieve green standard.

Maths 🧮

This week we have been talking about bigger and smaller! We talked about how baby animals grow and how we would describe it. The children were able to identify and use the language of size, some even began to use non standard measure!


We have been reading ‘Farmyard Hullabaloo’ this week! The children used shapes to draw the pigs from the story! Did you know a pigs nose is called a snout? The children couldn’t believe it and thought it was really funny to say!

Expedition 🐖🐑🐄

This week we have been thinking about how animals grow and change in their lifetime. We learnt lots of baby animal names like piglet, lamb and calf. The children would like to know what a baby alpaca is called; I wonder if you could find out with an adult at home?

We can’t wait for a new month next week and all the new, exciting learning it will bring!

Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend, the children have worked very hard and deserve a good rest! See you next week!
