Since the children have been back from their half term we have been super busy in our maths and English lessons.
In maths we have been learning to partition a number in different ways and in English we wrote our own story, where a terrible problem occurred.
Today some children from 1A told us about a shape song that they listen to. We listened to it this afternoon and it has quickly became a favourite of ours.
We have been busy practising a new song to share in our assembly this Friday. Below is quick preview of the song.
With the weather getting warmer it is really important that all the children bring in a water bottle filled with water NOT JUICE.
Can they also bring in a hat and sunglasses to wear for when they are outside. Please look at the Rushmere Hall Sun Safe page which is on the school website for more details.
Our sharing assembly is this Friday, please come and watch! We have been busy practising some new songs to share with you.
It will be our class sharing assembly on Friday 18th May. We hope you can come and watch!
Swimming has started and the children are thoroughly enjoying the lessons.
Please can the children have their names in all of their clothing.
Before Easter we had a visit from the Blue Cross. They showed us all the things you need to look after a pet dog or cat. We also learnt that there are lots of pets who do not have homes and how we could help these pets be re-homed.
Thank you to all the parents who came and help us make puppets on our DT afternoon. The children thoroughly enjoyed having your help.
This week the children had their first swimming lesson. I was very proud of how the children behaved in and around the pool. Please can I remind you that children need to have the correct swimming kit or they may be unable to swim.
This week the school had the squash road show in and on Wednesday 1P had their lesson. The children were excited to take part and thoroughly enjoyed learning a new sport.
We had a great day at the zoo, looking at all the different animals. A big thank you to all the parents who came and helped on the trip.
Date for the diary!
On Thursday 29th March parents are invited to come and view the children's art and DT work.
Please wait outside our classroom door to be let in.
Come and see our sharing assembly on Friday 16th March. It will start at 9.10 am. Please wait by the main office and they will let you in to the hall when the assembly is about to start.
In English we meet a Pigeon that wanted to drive a bus but he was not allowed to.
The children had to describe the pigeon using adjectives to give as much detail as they could.
They then had to teach the pigeon how to drive a bus by writing a set of instructions explaining how. The children also acted out giving instructions. In pairs one child was the pigeon and the other child explained how to drive a bus.
Finally they then had to pretend to be a bus driver and write a letter to the pigeon explaining why he cannot drive a bus.
Below are some examples of the work the children did and I think you will agree they should be feeling proud of their work.
Lego club has started! We started building different models, working on our own or with a partner. Look at the blog each week and you will see the progress we are making.
We have been busy learning over the last couple of weeks.
In English we have been reading non-fiction books.
Miss Phillips challenge: What is the difference between a fiction and non- fiction book?
From the non-fiction books we have been learning about nocturnal animals. The children had a particular nocturnal animal and they had to write key facts about that animal in their English books.
Miss Phillips challenge: Can you name 5 nocturnal animals?
In maths we have been really challenging ourselves. We are now confident in using an empty number line to solve addition and subtraction problems.
We are now exploring numbers up to 50 and using the dienes we can confidently tell you how many tens and ones are in a number.
We would like to say a massive thank you for the donation of reading books that we have had this term.
We love listening to different stories and the children have enjoyed picking a new book for us to read. We have read Don't Call Me Sweet by by Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Angie Rozelaar quite a few times as it is Miss Phillips book of the moment. We can probably tell you the story off by heart by now.
Miss Phillips Challenge: Can your child retell the story of Don't Call Me Sweet?
