Autumn 1 Week 1
In Class 1 we have had an amazing first week at school. All the children have settled in beautifully and it feels like we have been together for weeks, not just 3 days!
The children have been learning about our new topic 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers', we have looked at the type of pets that we have at home and have enjoyed playing in our vet role-play area. At certain points this week there has been quite a waiting time in order to be seen by a vet but rest assured that no animals have been hurt during the week :)
We have been learning the phoneme 's' and 'a' and finding words that begin with those sounds. In maths we have been doing lots of counting and recognising numbers.
Another exciting addition that we have to the outdoor area in class 1 is our bespoke mud kitchen that Mr Bamforth has generously made for us during the holidays- Thank you, we can't wait to get the mud pies started!
All in all an incredible start to school life here at St Michaels, well done everyone!
Autumn 1 week 2
We have had another amazing arrival this week in class 1 in the form of our new taxi. We have spent lots of time driving each other to far and wide places and as if that wasn't enough we also made a reading boat using tyres!
In Maths we have been counting in order to and back from 10 and finding missing numbers. We have had lots of fun pretending to be rockets and counting down from 10-0 and 'blasting off'.
In literacy we have been focussing on the Dear zoo story and looking at and naming different varieties of animals.
In RE we have worked with our Class 5 buddies to draw and talk about our families and celebrate the love and care that they give to us.
Autumn 1 week 3
This week we have been exploring sensory play with moon sand... we got a little dusty but we had lots of fun practising letter formation and playing.
We have been building using our large construction blocks and letting our imaginations run wild!
In Maths we have been looking for missing numbers and using dominoes to figure out which number would come next in a sequence.
PE has been lots of exciting and we have been learning about using space and ways to move around. Mr Johnson has taught us a game of 'beanbag!' and it is lots of fun.
Mrs Weston has been singing with us in RE and we all enjoyed singing along to 'our God is a great big God'. We talked about how God shows us that he loves and cares for us.
