This week in Class 1 we have been settling into our new classroom and the routines in our school.
In maths, we have been playing lots of number games involving counting and ordering.
In phonics we have been learning the sounds ‘s’, ‘a’, and ‘t’, and looking at items which start with these sounds.
In Understanding the World we have been talking about people who help us, and in our choosing time, some of us had a go at drawing them.
Well done to Harrison and Kacey, who are this week’s Golden Award winners, and the very first winners in Class 1 this year! A big well done to Grace as well, who has tried the hardest this week with her handwriting.
A big thank you to all of the grown-ups who came to see Class 1’s final assembly in Reception. We hope you enjoyed your tour of Hall Hill farm!
The children have also brought their favourite teddy bears into school today. Here are some of them sitting in our classroom watching us learn!
Class 1 have had a busy week rehearsing and performing as part of the Reception and Year 1 Summer production, “The North Wind and the Sun”.
They all had so much fun and sang so beautifully throughout. Thank you to all the grown-ups for coming!
Well done Class 1!
We have had lots of fun learning all about the farm this week. Here are some photos from our visit to Hall Hill Farm on Thursday.
Here we are all raring to go.
We held lots of different animals, but always had to remember to wash our hands afterwards.
We fed some lambs…
…and some goats!
Then to top it all off, we had lots of fun playing in the soft play.
What a fantastic day!
Purple Day was on Wednesday 21st June and was in aid of the ‘Kidsafe’ Charity
Class 4 was the place to learn all about ‘Sun Safety’.
This week in Class 1 we have been learning how to share quantities and objects. We already know how to half an amount, and we know that this means splitting evenly into two groups, so we used this knowledge to help us share into groups of 3, 4, and even 5.
In phonics our focus sounds this week were ‘igh’ and ‘ure’. Here are some of us playing ‘igh’ bingo, drawing pictures to represent ‘igh’ words, and writing ‘igh’ words in glitter.
On Wednesday it was Purple Day!
We all came into school dressed in something purple and donated £1 to the Kidsafe charity. We talked about lots of ways we can keep ourselves safe, including on the road, at the beach, in the sun, and online. We had lots of fun in the process!
This week we have learning about the properties of 3D shapes.
We passed a feely bag around the circle and chose a shape to describe to everyone else.
We talked about the amount of faces and corners, and whether the shapes feel round or flat, as well as comparing the shapes in terms of their similarities and differences.
We’ve also been looking at the shape of everyday items by going on a 3D shape hunt in our outdoor area. In pairs, one child took photos of each shape on the iPad, and one child recorded using a tally chart. We then compiled all of our results to find out which shape we saw the most of.
Super shape hunting, Class 1!
The children have had loads of fun meeting real-life pirate, Captain Jack, this afternoon. They have learned all about what life would be like on board a pirate ship, listened very carefully, and answered lots of questions to show him what they have learnt this half term.
They also played lots of fun pirate games, and three of the children won some rather questionable prizes! What a perfect end to our pirate topic, thank you Captain Jack!
I would also like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to see our assembly this morning! The children have worked very hard all term on this topic and they were all very excited to share with you all of the work they have done. I’m sure you’ll agree that they were amazing!
Hope you all have an enjoyable half term!
