Week 28th November-2nd December 2022

This week we have started our Christmas preparations by planning our Christmas letters to Santa. There are lots of things being requested! 

The class is bubbling with excitement and have really enjoyed spending time in the Winter Workshop preparing gifts and selling them to each other.

In maths we have been trying out addition and subtraction word problems and have embraced the challenge.

As it stopped raining yesterday we all went outside to take part in a science investigation and classified different leaves into groups so that we could enter the data into a pictogram and talk about the results. 

We have also started practising our song for the Christmas Play - Funky Camels!


Week 14th-18th November 2022

This week we have started our new topic for English which is recounts. We read a recount about going on a beach walk and then went on our own nature walk around school.

We found lots of things, leaves of different colours, mini beasts and we even made homes for various creatures out of natural objects. When we got back to the classroom we drank yummy hot chocolate. Now we are beginning to write about our experience using lots of describing words to make our information interesting. 

In DT we have also started making a nativity scene using a slider mechanism  and In History we have built a timeline of our school’s history.


Week 7th-11th November 2022
We have had a busy few days and have learnt all about Baptism in RE. 
We have also started writing a Christmas Poem using the skills we have learnt from writing about fireworks before half term.
In Science we are learning about the seasons and how in Autumn the weather and plants change as well as thinking about the day length.
In maths we have consolidated our knowledge of number bonds to 10 and used lots of manipulatives to help us with our learning.

We even have a new class plant to look after. 

In PE we are busy working with the PE coach and practising all the multitude of skills needed to be a sportsperson.
