Spring 1 Week 5

This week was all about well-being! We thought about ways of staying healthy, safe and happy! During our fruit workshop we got to try lots of different fruits such as figs, passion fruit, dragon fruit, star fruit and physalis. The children were very good about trying something new! 

In Literacy we wrote a recount about the Good Samaritan and thought about what the moral of this story is. We also discussed our current school value 'Service' and thought about how we can link this back to our story.

In Maths we looked at the column method for subtraction and solved some tricky 2 step word problems using addition and subtraction!

Please note that due to lots of extra curricular activities for Arts Day and Wellbeing Week, we have not been able to read with all the children. Reading will be back to normal next week! 

Have a lovely weekend and hopefully see lots of you on Monday night for open session!

Spring Week 5

In English this week, we have been looking at the book Traction Man is here, written by Mini Grey. We used adjectives to describe Traction Man and what clothing he wears.

In maths, we have been learning how to find halves and quarters of shapes.

Over this week, we have also done a lot of work on wellbeing. As a class we have talked about how to look after ourselves and how we can stay safe. We had an exciting day on Thursday when we learnt about different fruits and vegetables and got to try them too!

Upcoming:

-      Open session on Monday (3.30-6.30pm).

-      On Friday (15th), we will be having a Great Fire of London morning to finish our history topic. Please could your child bring in a named plastic bucket for Friday in order for them to be a part of one of the activities.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Leake

Spring Week 5

Well Being Week has finished! It was a brilliant week all round, it was really good to talk to the children about well-being and i've been impressed all week by the thoughtful, reflective discussions we have had. 

In English and DT, we have created dream jars! They are awesome! The children have written a piece of creative writing about their dream and presented them beautifully for our new display.

In maths we've completed some more subtraction sums and moved onto writtin multiplication with 2 or 3 digit numbers multiplied by 1 digit numbers.

Times Table Rockstars is going well too - we've got some clear improvement and I can already see it helping with our Maths in class! Do try to log in for the battle over the weekend - every point helps! 

We've also been practising for our class assembly (next friday at 2:30pm) - the short scripts have gone home as well as song lyrics. Do try to practise and let me know if you need another copy. 

Well done Class 4, enjoy the weekend!

Class 5 Wellbeing Week

Class 5 have really enjoyed our extra PSHE lessons this week and have thought about their feelings and emotions, as well as how to stay safe online, at home and at school and in tricky situations. 

The children have thought hard about being a good friend and can list the qualities needed - we still need to practice acting on these thoughts some of the time though. Maybe over the weekend your child could take some time to reflect on their friendships and if they make the right choices through what they do and say or how they could be an even better friend. 

Swimming is on Monday so please do not forget swimming kits!!! 

Looking forward to seeing most of you at open session - it is a great chance to come and see our classroom and all the fab work they are doing! 

Have a lovely weekend, 

Miss Walker :)

Well-being week in Class One

This week in Class One, we have been talking all about ‘wellbeing’ as part of national ‘wellbeing week’. We have been thinking about what to do if we feel sad or angry, been talking about how to be a good friend, thinking of ways to keep us healthy and practising our ‘self-help’ skills so we can get better at problem solving with independence. One of our favourite parts of the week was our visit from Herts Catering where we got to sample lots of new fruits! Our favourite was the physalis which looks like a little superhero, hidden in its cape! We also enjoyed the dragon fruit, star fruit and figs although the ‘lime challenge’ was hard to do without pulling a very sour face!

In other news, we have enjoyed learning all about Chinese New Year this week. The children have taken part in a variety of Chinese inspired activities including making Chinese lanterns, writing our names in Mandarin, creating animal puppet and masks based on the Chinese zodiac and creating our own dragon dances in PE. Ask us this weekend if we can remember how to say Happy Chinese New Year in Chinese! Enjoy your weekend

Class One.
