We have been working so hard this week doing lots of assessments. We had a great PE lesson with Mr Johnson this week and enjoyed our "Buddy Time" with our Class 5 children. We talked about how to keep safe online and also learned how to use a new coding app called "Codeapillar" and had a go on the new "Rock Stars" game to learn our 2 times tables!
We began our week with a visit from a poet called Paul Cookson. He was very clever and very funny! He taught us lots of poems and we even wrote our very own class poem called "Best of Friends". We continued to think about rhyming words and our book in Literacy this week has been "Oi Cat!" by Kes Gray. It has lots and lots of funny rhyming words in it. We had a go at writing some questions and answers from the story too.
In Maths we have been counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and finding missing numbers on a number line to 20. Year 1 have been working on hundred squares!
We started our new topic "Do you want to be friends?" by talking about how friends help each other and who helps us at home. We then went for a walk around to find people who help us in school. We found lots of people who do important jobs to help us in school. We took some photos and have started our writing about them.
The children have been fabulous, especially our FS2 children who have completed their first whole week in full time school- well done! Next week they are all going to try coming into school every morning all by themselves
We have had such a lovely week in Class 1. It has been wonderful to watch the children getting to know each other, making new friends and being so kind to one another. We have spent this week exploring all the different areas of provision and talking about our class rules. Next week we will begin our first Cornerstones topic- "Do you want to be friends?"
