Autumn 2, Week 6

Hello from Class One!

Firstly, a huge well done to all the children, for their fantastic nativity; Shine Star Shine! I hope you all enjoyed watching our Christmas story. The children have been working so hard and made us all very proud as they performed their hearts out for us all. A big thank you to all parents and grown-ups who came to watch; DVDs will be with you very soon! Your children have come such a long way in the one term they have been with us and we were delighted with their efforts.  Make sure you have a look on the school gallery page too, to see the photos from our dress rehearsal!

As well as rehearsing for the show, we have been working with magnets during science this week and experimenting with objects that are magnetic. We had some wonderful explanations and experiments and the children had great fun testing out different objects.  Christmas cards are in full swing and the children have been using their super learning powers to make them and write their messages. The children were encouraged to make their designs personal and it is lovely to see what they have all come up with.

A few small reminders…

Please sign up to an allocated food for our Christmas party using the list on the school gate (outside Class One).  Thank you to all those who have done so already!

Next week will be the last week for library book changes and taking home reading books from class.  After that, all books will be collected in for our usual end of term audit.  Those of you who have school books at home floating around, if you could return them before the end of term, we would be extremely grateful!

PE bags will also come home next week.  Any lost property left over in class will be passed down to the main box in the front office so please check here for any lost items.

Thank you and enjoy your weekend,

All in Class One.

Autumn 2, Week 5

Hello from Class One, we've had another jam packed week full of learning, adventures and fun!

The children have been doing so well learning their nativity lines and songs this week! We are now in full swing gearing up for the big event. The children are making us so proud with their acting skills. 

If we could ask for you to continue learning lines and songs that would be great. Also please check book bags as some children may need to bring in a plain t-shirt/ tights for the dress rehearsals next week.  If this is the case, your child will have a named letter in their book-bags.

We've had lots of arts and crafts going on this week and have incorporated maths.

The children have made paper chains and were put into groups. The competition was on to see which team could make the longest paper chain!  We have also been making our Christmas hoops so make sure you have a look in the school hall, to spot some of our work. 

Reminders

Wishing you another wonderful weekend and a great time at the Christmas fair tonight!  Enjoy your weekends and we hope that all of the children have one last try at saying their nativity lines in a big, clear voice!

Autumn 2, Week 4

Class one have had another wonderfully busy week, Christmas nativity practice is in full swing and we can't wait for you to see the children in full costume acting and singing out our Christmas story. Thank you for helping the children at home with the songs I am sure you will all be familiar with them by show time.

The costumes for our nativity will be organised by us, however there may be a few extras we need and these items will be explained in a letter coming out next week. Thank you again for all of your support.

Please could we ask for an extra special push on lines over the weekend and to encourage your child to use their extra big and loud voices? 

Exciting times have occurred in class one this week, our egg has hatched overnight and we can't believe how lucky we are to have Moz the monster as our class pet. I'm sure many of you may recognise Moz from the John Lewis advert but our Moz really did come from a hatched egg that we have nurtured for a week!!! The children have enjoyed showing Moz around the class room, reading all about Mos's adventures in literacy and letting Moz watch whilst we learn.

In maths this week we have been looking at time. The children have had little clocks and are getting use to "0 clock" we even played "what's the time Mr Moz and the children have tried to find the correct time on the clocks before the grown-ups. 

Reminders:

A little reminder that the book fair is open after school today (Friday 24th November) and Monday morning before school (Monday 27th November) as well as after school on Monday. 

Class one were taken to browse through the books yesterday so the children may have already spied a book they like. 

We wish you a happy and restful weekend as we all gear up for Christmas.

Autumn 2, Week 3

What a busy week we have had in Class One! Firstly, a big thank you to all who were able to attend on Monday for family week, it was wonderful to watch the children thrive and show you all what they do in a day. The treasure hunt seemed to be a firm favourite and I hope you were all able to decode our hidden word.

In RE we have been working towards our big question, "show us what you know about the Holy Trinity- God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit." 

The children have been drawing their interpretations of this big question and have come up with some wonderful thoughts and ideas. They have also been making some beautiful stained glass windows which you will be able to see displayed.

In PE the children have been working on their gymnastic skills, balancing and forward rolling and impressing us all with their coordination. They work really hard in PE and getting dressed and undresses has become a lot quicker.Could I please ask all parents to name all the children's clothing and encourage the children to practice getting dressed at home. Many thanks.

In Maths we have been looking at 3D shapes, the children have been counting faces and corners (vertices). We have had a look around the classroom to spot as many shapes as we can.

Our mini topic currently is dinosaurs and the excitement is over flowing now we have a "real life dinosaur egg" in class. We have been writing warning signs and danger signs to notify others to beware. I hear that the egg may hatch one day next week...watch this space! Class One have looked at all animals and what they eat, making them Herbivores, Omnivores or Carnivores. What long words for them to remember but the children have been super stars.  Well done for a huge learning week class one. Let's see what we can discover next week.

Reminders

- You may find an envelope inside your child's book bag this weekend.  This contains the lines for our Christmas Nativity!  We ask kindly that you practise these at home with your child so that your child can use their biggest, clearest voice! (Please note, not all children have lines)

Enjoy your weekend,

Class One!

Autumn 2, Week 2

This week in Class One, we were very excited to have a visit from the Hitchin Fire Brigade!  We were lucky enough to meet five fire fighters and test out some of our knowledge from our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic from last half term.  The firefighters answered lots of questions in class and Miss Ingle even got to be dressed up in a fire-fighting outfit which was very funny!  We had a look at some real jaws of life and found out that they are strong enough to lift up 18 cars and even cut through metal.  Next, we went out to the playground where we saw a real fire engine/ ‘the appliance’.  We were shown the sirens and hoses and we all had a go at squirting them onto the playground; it was great fun!  Photos are inside each child’s learning journeys so you will be able to see your child in role as a real firefighter!

In other news this week, we have started a short mini-topic all about dinosaurs.  We have been using books and technology to find out information and were amazed to learn how to use SIRI.  We have all enjoyed asking it questions about dinosaurs and have been busy recording the answers on fact sheets.  We have also been thinking about what dinosaurs eat and learnt all about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores.  Test us at home to see if we can remember some of these tricky words!

Reminders.

. Don’t forget that next Monday is Class One’s turn at family week.  All parents are invited to spend the afternoon in Class One where we have a variety of activities for you to try out.  There will be paint out, an outside task and an afternoon play so you may wish to wear comfortable shoes and some layers for this!

. Friday will be the next school cake day (this time run by Class Four).  We ask that children bring in 25p or 50p only wherever possible, to avoid lost change.  Also, please ensure your child brings their money in wrapped in paper or a small envelope/ purse/ wallet/ sandwich bag.  Unfortunately due to lots of lost money last time, we did have a few children who were unable to buy a cake.

Thank you and have a good weekend.

Class One.
