Well done to our pupil of the week, who was chosen for his communication skills and team work when helping others in their numeracy learning.

This week we had ECO day. The children learnt about water and how some countries are less fortunate. They drink dirty water and need to walk for miles to get it. We challenges ourselves to walk a mile around the playground then once back carrying water.

In Art, we have continued to paint our impressionist city scapes. They are looking really good.

In writing, we have started to look at non-chronological reports. We are learning our new text: A guide to chocolate. We were hooked in by taking part in lots of activities linked to chocolate. We are hoping to try some at some point in the final week (Please let us know if you have any concerns over this or your child has any allergies that we are not already aware of).

In Maths, we have continued to learn about solving multiplication and division number problems.

Elves and the Shoemaker

I hope you all had a brilliant half term!
On Tuesday, Class 1 were introduced to their new Literacy topic: Elves and the Shoemaker. As an immersion, the children had to take on the role of sneaky elves and create their own shoes, before the Shoemaker and his wife woke up!
The children created little stockings using felt, glue and a lot of glitter!
We all had a lot of fun pretending to be elves, working quickly to ensure we were not caught!

Week beginning 21/10/19

Well done to the pupil of the week, who was chosen for the scientific language she used to communicate her ideas in our science investigation.

In writing, we have been writing descriptions on settings linked to our whole class reading book: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

In Science this week, we have continued our investigation into what happens to the egg shells when left in different liquids for 1 hour. We asked questions, recorded information, measured using measuring beakers and made links to how what we have found out can help us look after our teeth.

In PE, we have been continuing to learn about balance, develop strength and Stamina through sustained periods of rigorous activity Practice. They have implemented runs, leaps, jumps and locomotion in more complex sequences, working collaboratively to perform with a partner.

In Maths, we have been learning about problem solving, some children even found more practical ways to help them solve the problems.

The end of our topic.

In our topic learning, we have been pretending to go back in time in a time machine, we went to different periods in history and saw how the Egyptian civilisation had changed.

Thank you to those parents who came in to see our learning and canopic jars. We can not wait to begin our new topic after half term.

Have a wonderful, half term and thank you again to all parents for your support.
