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
