A Week at a Time...
Monday 12th November - Friday 16th November
We have begun to think about the Superheroes from the Past to see if there is anything we can learn from them. In our English lessons, we have read all about Mary Seacole. We have answered some tricky questions about her life, and thought about why she is considered an important person from the past.
Monday 5th November - Monday 9th November
This week, we have reading and reciting the poem, If I were a Superhero, making sure that we have used appropriate intonation to make the meaning clear. We have also started subtracting in class. We are using everything we have learnt about place value and addition, to help us take away too. We are working hard to be able to take away even when we have to exchange one ten for ten ones! Very complicated but we are doing a great job!
Monday 29th October - Friday 2nd November
We started this term thinking about the value of 'Compassion'. We thought about how we can think more about others, and how we can give people the help and support that they need. We are really enjoying our drawing at the moment. We are developing our developing our drawing skills. This week we looked at self portraits that famous artists have created in the past, listened to some advice on how to create our own self portrait and then had a go ourselves. The results were fantastic.
Monday 22nd October - Friday 26th October HALF TERM
Monday 15th October - Friday 19th October
Throughout this term, we have thoroughly enjoyed our Music sessions with Ms Young. We have been using the boomwhackers to explore pitch and tempo, and were able to play a whole song as a class. We also used our voices expressively and creatively by singing. We thoroughly enjoyed singing, 'We are the World' and showed Ms Young how amazing we all are at singing.
Monday 8th October - Friday 12th October
In our Guided Reading sessions we have been reading 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Drew Daywalt. We read the text independently trying to make sure we read fluently and accurately. We then answer questions about the text. We try to retrieve the answers from the text, and even interpret what we have read to answer the questions. This week, we have really improved our comprehension skills.
Monday 1st October – Friday 5th October
We've had a super Sci-Fest week. We thoroughly enjoyed all the activities we took part in particularly the Science Magic show we saw on Wednesday afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came to our Harvest Service on Tuesday. The children were all a little nervous but excited about performing on Tuesday, but I think that they did a great job.
Monday 24th September – Friday 28th September
This week, we have been busy practising for our Harvest Service. In our Inside Out lessons we considered what we would say to God if we were able to talk to him about Harvest. We then wrote our ideas, thoughts and feelings into our own harvest prayers. We hope to see you at our Harvest Service.
Monday 17th September – Friday 21st September
This week, we have been continuing to deepen our understanding of two digit numbers, and our understanding the value of each digit within a two digit number. This has enabled us to partition or split our two digit numbers into tens and ones in lots of different ways.
Monday 10th September – Friday 14th September
This week we were very excited to begin our outdoor learning with our first Forest School session of the year. In our first session, we learnt to name and locate the four countries of the United Kingdom. Please look at the Forest School photo gallery to find out more about our learning in Forest School.
Tuesday 4th September – Friday 7th September
This week we have been having fun getting to know each other a little better. We have begun to consider our enquiry question, ‘Can anyone be a superhero?’
