Amazing adjectives and super sharing!

This week we have been practising halving numbers. We know already that this means to share into two equal groups, and can already half single digit numbers. This week the children have been halving numbers up to 20 and beyond!

In literacy the children have also been working hard to extend their sentences, and to use adjectives. See if you can spot the adjectives in their sentences!

Our new topic for this half term is castles. The children have had lots of fun this week playing in their new castle role play area, and dressing up like kings and queens!

A pirate’s life for me

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!

Telling the time

This week we have been learning about time. We began by discussing units of time, and investigated what sorts of things we can do in a minute. Here are some of the boys seeing how many beads they can thread in one minute.

We then moved on to looking at o’clock times. We talked about where the big hand and small hand need to be to show each time, and even moved on to talking about one hour earlier/later. We have gotten really good at making given times on individual clocks…

… and even drawing the hands in place ourselves!

Well done Class 1!

Celery Experiment

In Class One this week we have conducted our own experiment.  We placed sticks of celery in food colouring and made our own predictions about what we thought might happen.

Autumn Collage

This week we have been working in groups to make autumn collages in the outdoor area. We collected our own autumn materials and arranged them to make a picture on the floor.
