*Learner of the Week W/C 19.10.20*

Our Learner of the Week this week was awarded to Elodie for writing and solving lots of amazing number sentences involving both addition and subtraction! Well done Elodie!

In Class One, we have a class robot which we have to work together to earn a piece of bit by bit. Whenever we do something amazing, for example persevering when things are tricky or lining up beautifully, we get to add a piece to our robot. This week, we earnt our last piece and today, we really enjoyed our robot reward! We voted as a class and chose to have a ‘disco party’. We loved dancing – especially with the lights and played lots of fun games. Can you tell your grown up about them? We played pass the parcel, musical statues and Kim’s game.

Thank you to every single member of Class One – we have had such a wonderful start to the school year! I hope that you all have a lovely half-term holiday and look forward to seeing you in November. Miss Etheridge 🙂

Spelling home learning

This week’s spelling looks at the sounds ‘ai’, ‘ee’ and ‘igh’ which we have been learning in school.  What is special about the ‘igh’ sound? – It is a trigraph! (it has three letters but it only makes one sound).

ai

rain

pain

snail

ee

feet

deep

beep

igh

thigh

fight

light

What to do: 

  1. Read the words to your grown up. Remember to use your robot arms to help you break down the sounds (e.g. r-ai-n = rain)
  2. Can you spot the digraph (ai, ee, igh) in each word? Add the sound buttons to each word
  3. Challenge – can you write any of the words in a sentence? (e.g. I see a bright light.)

Maths home learning:

This week, we have been learning to use part, part whole models to show our number bonds to 10. Can you complete the following part, part whole questions? (you can draw your own).

Challenge- Can you write a number sentence for each model? e.g. 5+4 = 9 Extra challenge! – can you think of your own part, part whole models?

Welcome to Class One!

From settling back into the school routine to finding a dinosaur egg in the classroom… Class One have had a very busy and exciting start to the new term!

 

In our  first Talk For Writing unit, we looked at the story of ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’. To begin this unit, we explored a crime scene in our classroom – someone had broken into the Bears’ cottage and eaten Baby Bear’s porridge! Luckily, they had left some clues behind to help us determine who it could be! We found a lock of golden hair, a necklace with the initial ‘G’ on it and some small sticky handprints which led us to believe that the porridge thief was Goldilocks!

 

 

We enjoyed learning the actions to our story and making innovations to our story map… we changed the Three Bears to the Three Hotdogs who lived in a bakery on a submarine! Last week, we innovated the text independently – can you tell your grown up about your story? Who was in your story, what did they find in the bowls and what happened at the end?

This week we started our new T4W text, ‘The Squeaky Story’ – can you retell the story to a grown up using the picture of our story snake?

In Science we have been busy making weather stations to help us to measure rainfall and wind direction.

Our ‘Dino Discovery’ topic began with the exciting discovery of an egg in the classroom! We discussed what could be inside and learnt about animals that can lay eggs (oviparous animals) and animals who do not lay eggs (viviparous animals). Last week, we noticed something different about our egg… it had hatched! We found big footprints and lots of mess in the classroom which helped us to conclude that whatever came out of the egg was very big. We examined the footprints and discovered that there were three claws- just like a Tyrannosaurus rex!
