Another super exciting week for us in Class 1! It was so lovely to see some familiar faces popping in to say hello and see us busy at work. We hope you enjoyed your tour of the school and were impressed with all of the beautiful work we have produced to decorate our class with. We have also welcomed 5 little caterpillars to our class πŸ› we have named them; Curly, Cuthbert, Colin, Clyde and Cilla! Everyday we check to see if they have grown and each day they are getting bigger and bigger! We can’t wait to see what happens next when they are ready to turn into cocoons.

 

 

This week in Literacy we have really enjoyed the story  of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. We have been able to create a diary for the caterpillar and have written what the greedy caterpillar ate each day of the week. We have also been using the puppets to retell the story and pictures to sequence the story too. We have been talking about Healthy food this week and the children were able to explain which healthy foods the caterpillar ate in the story and which unhealthy foods he ate too. They then made a delicious fruit kebab with Miss C and looked a a book all about 'Healthy Fruit'. 

 

In Numeracy we have ben revising the skill of addition and subtraction. This time we have been practising the skill of writing the sums out in our books all by ourselves. We had to remember the golden rule; each number and symbol must be written in its own square. 

 

Miss Williams has been teaching us all about the parts of a plant. We learned a special song to help us to remember them, I'm sure you have probably all heard it at home too!  We have been checking our beans and to our amazement they have all been growing! Some of our beans have grown some roots whist others have shot right up and have even grown a stem and a leaf! We couldn't believe our eyes! We have checked our experiment to see if Miss C or Mrs Prices beans have been growing and we were shocked to see that even the bean that has been in the dark has sprouted a tiny root too! 

 

This week we have been learning about the famous artist Vincent Van Gough and looking at his beautiful paintings. We particularly liked his ‘Sunflower’ painting and collaborated as a group to make our own version. We were able to choose how to colour our sunflowers using either water colours, oil pastels or felt tip pens. We even had a go at painting Van Gough himself using the water colours just like he did. We learned that Van Gough painted sunflowers because they were his favourite colour was yellow as it made him feel happy. We talked about all the things that are yellow and how they make us feel happy too 😊. 

 

Next week:

Literacy - We will be learning all about bees and making our own fact files. Pupil voice - 'How do bees make honey'? - Zak 'why do bees collect nectar'? - Elsie. 

Numeracy - Sorting minibeasts into a range of criteria. 

Topic - Science/D&T project making a bee hive for the Jubilee week. 

 

Thank you again for you continued support! We hope you have a lovely weekend and fingers crossed that the sun stays out for us!
