Last week of Autumn 2!

The final week has really flown by! As I am sure the children have told you, they had some very exciting moment this week! In between all of those they have done some fantastic learning.

In R.E, we discussed the different ways families celebrate Christmas and the children created a detailed poster about these. The children were confident in expressing their views and understood that people celebrate in different ways.

In another R.E lesson we discussed what is important at Christmas, the children then sorted different pictures on a simple venn diagram. We had a good discussion about why presents are a lovely part of Christmas but that remembering the reason we celebrate it and spending tie with our families ( a point of discussion in itself this year!) is more so.

In Maths this week, we have been continue to practise forming and recognising numbers 1 – 20. We have been visited by Normal the number man again who asked the children to get involved in lots of fun number activities! Meanwhile the Year 1’s have been perfecting their ability to count in 2’s and group objects in groups of 2.

Tuesday was a very exciting day – the children not only had their Christmas lunch and party but they also met Father Christmas via zoom! The children’s faces were a picture as they listened to Santa refer to their individual letters!

What a wonderful way to finish the term!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!

Autumn 2 Week 6

It has been another very busy week in Class One! The children have done some amazing learning with lots of smiles along the way! In English we have been reading ‘Mog’s Christmas’. The children thoroughly enjoyed discovering what Mog got up to and applied this knowledge to sequence the different parts of the story. Later on in the week we explored the various time connectives used in the text such as ‘firstly’, ‘ next’, ‘meanwhile’ etc. The children used some fantastic actions to re-tell the story ( I am sure they will enjoy sharing these with you!) These actions came in handy when they were writing their version of the story today. In Maths reception children have been using numicon to count up to 20! They had lots of fun helping Norman the number hunter to find and order numbers. Norman may call upon them again… The Year One’s started looking at 2 digit numbers up to 20 and used cherry models alongside numicon to explain how many tens and ones are in each number. The children were so excited to watch ‘Jack and the beanstalk’ panto this afternoon – it really brought a smile to all of their faces! You may hear lots of ‘ Oh no he didn’t!’ this weekend! A couple of reminders: Please could you return any library books by the end of term. We are running very low on award badges, so please can you return any effort, achievement or values badges you may have at home from previous weeks. Thankyou – have a lovely weekend

This week in Class One

We have had another festive and busy week in Class One. The children absolutely loved the movie and munch on Monday afternoon – it was certainly a nice, fun start to the week.

In Maths this week we have been counting up to 30! The children helped the counting caterpillar find his numbers to 30 and place them in the correct order. They really enjoyed taking part in a number hunt – some cheeky numbers had hidden themselves around the classroom! The Year Ones have been counting in groups of 2’s and 10’s . They were also really great at being number detectives - finding the missing numbers in number lines !

In English this week we met Moz the monster who came for a quick visit – the children loved meeting him, what a friendly monster he was! They thought of lots of fantastic adjectives to describe Moz and the next day they used their imaginations to create their own monster! We saw lots of multiple head, sharp teeth and furry paws!The Year Ones wrote some fantastic descriptive sentences about both Moz and Moz the monster.

Today all of the children wrote a letter to Father Christmas!

The children have continued to practise their songs for the nativity and we have been very impressed with their beautiful voices.

Autumn 2, Week 2

Hi everyone,

We have had a lovely week this week in Class One learning our doubles in maths. We had great fun learning the doubles rap, you can listen to this at home using the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ik_-OAgzD-8

We have also been learning all about the celebration of Diwali. We have made diwa lamps, rangoli patterns using stained rice, coloured sand and sawdust and we even dressed up in some beautiful clothing to act out the story of Rama and Sita. Ask us about it at home to see what we can remember!

In topic, we have been learning all about royal people and we have asked some great questions that we want to find out this half term. We have decided we want to research what the Queen’s corgis are called, how much money she has, what car she has, how many crowns the Queen owns and how many servants the royal family own! We look forward to finding out some answers soon!

Enjoy your weekend everyone and well done to everyone who has already done this week’s home-learning! See you all on Monday,

Miss Ingle and the class one team
