I am super proud of all the children for their performance in the Harvest Festival last week. Thank you to everyone who came and watched us perform, we hope you enjoyed it.
In History we looked at toys from the past and present. We then made our own sock puppets.
In maths we have been learning about more than and less than. We have been using the symbols to show if the number is more or less than a given number. To help us remember we remember that the crocodile always eats the biggest number.
On Friday in History we will be looking at toys from the past and present. For this Friday your child can bring in a toy from home. This toy must be named. Can the children also bring in a clean pair of socks as we will be making sock puppets as part of our History lesson.
On Monday we have a class raffle to celebrate the children's reading :). It has been fantastic to see that the children are enjoying reading both at school and at home.
In our foundation lesson the children learnt about the History of communication. We learnt how technology has impacted on the way we communicate. Some of the forms of communication the children looked at were carrier pigeons, mobile phones, email and Royal Mail.
The children then created their own carrier pigeons using a tube and coloured paper. We are so proud of our work that we created a displayed of them in our classroom.
In Maths we have been learning some new vocabulary.
Miss Phillips Challenge: Ask your children if they can tell you the new vocabulary and what it means.
It has been a fantastic start to the school year. The children worked really hard today in maths. During our maths lesson we learnt a new word, our new word was subitising. The children have come home with their reading books tonight. With their reading books there are some sounds and words for the children to practise if you wish, they also have a reading eye which they can use to help them sound out unfamiliar words and lastly there is a book mark with helpful questions on for you to use when reading if you wish to use it.
This week we have been learning about the Rainbow Fish story. We learnt how The Rainbow Fish shared his scales and made new friends.
Next week we will be learning about the story 'Sharing a Shell' as part of our 'Under the Sea' topic.
We will be looking closely at shells and making observational drawings. We will be learning how to sort shells by colour, size and shape. We will also be learning how to give reasoned arguments for how we have sorted the shells.
Next week is refugee week. We will be learning about Paddington Bear.
Sports Day is next Thursday 22nd June.
This week we have been learning about the Julia Donaldson story 'The Snail and the Whale'. We have created our own beach scene in the outdoor area. We have enjoyed making sandcastles and sitting on the deck chair.
