Our Teddy Bear Picnic! We really enjoyed making our own jam/cheese/marmalade sandwich to eat at our picnic. First we played some games in the hall with Class 2 and then we went back to class to enjoy our picnic. What a lovely afternoon it has been.
Week beg 10.02.20: Teddy Bears Picnic & Valentines Day - What a busy week we have had! We have been beary busy making Valentine’s Day cards, we hope you liked them but shhh it’s a secret! In English we have been using adjectives to describe out teddy bears. In numeracy we have been adding and subtracting using items from our picnic basket. We have loved playing with our teddies in our very own picnic area and drawing pictures of our teddies. Thank you for all of your hard work this term Class 1! I hope you all have a lovely half term.
Week beg 03.02.20: Robot Week! First of all a huge thank you to the children who very kindly brought in their robots from home for us to look at. We have had a great time building our own robots from our recycling and now have 4 new members of Class 1. In Numeracy we have been looking at 3D shapes and describing them. In Literacy we read the story of ‘Harry and the Robots’ and wrote instructions for how to loook after poorly nana in the story, the children had some lovely ideas including giving her a big hug. Phoebe had a great idea to make her a Get Well Soon card so we made her some card to make her feel better. What a busy week, one more to go!
Week beg 27.01.20: This week was ‘International Week’ where we have been learning all about Uganda! We looked at the flag of Uganda and read the story of ‘How the Crane got the Crown’. We also had a go at cooking a traditional African Dish of Spicy Potato, it was delicious. Noah even had 4 helpings he enjoyed it that much! We have really enjoyed learning about Africa and comparing it to Wales.
Handa’s Surprise: We read the story Handa’s Surprise and we tasted the fruits from the story. We loved the pineapple but were not so keen on the avocado! We did a vote for our favourite fruit and made bar charts in our maths lesson.
Week Beg 20.01.20: This week we have been focusing on the story of ‘Toy Story’. In Literacy we have been writing what we think our toys get up to when we are not around and acting the story out in our brand new amphitheater! In Maths we have been practicing Adding two amounts together and next week we will be Subtracting! We are so clever! We thought it would be a good idea to make a friend for Forky out of Toy Story so we decided to make a ‘Spoony’ and practiced buying all of the parts to make one. Next week is international week where we will be learning about the country Uganda.
Week beg 13.01.20 - What a busy week! We have had so much fun making our own hand puppets and practicing stitching! We did really well and have some natural sewers in class!
Week beg 13.01.20 - In maths this week we have been practicing 'One More and One Less' using number lines to help us count backwards and forwards. We had a challenge to unlock the locked up toys by finding the matching key which was one less! It was tricky but we managed to set all of the toys free. In Literacy we have been looking at different toys describing how they work and what materials they are made out of. We played a game of headbands using questions such as "am I made out of plastic' to help us to work out what toy we were. We have also been writing about what we can recycle and have even learnt a new song called 'I Recycle'.
We have been learning about Recycling and different materials. We have a new junk modelling station where we have been re-using recycling to make some lovely models with the help off some Year 2 children. We also have a new 'Feely station' where we can feel the different textures of materials, some of us have even made a collage out of them,
