Autumn Term 1

Week 8

W.B 19.10.2020

What an incredible  half term we have had! I am so proud of Class 1 children's resilience in the  face of many uncertainties. The year 1 children displayed such an amazing level of maturity and helped the new Reception children settle in well. I hope all the adults are proud of their children, who came into school  this half term, not knowing how things would look like, but came in determined to learn and do their best. We hope for better days next half term and I would like to wish everyone a lovely half term break. 




Final Week Autumn Activities

Literacy Activities

Exploring outside

Week 7

W.B 12.10.2020

This week  in Science,  we were investigating the properties of different materials. Our inquiry question was “ What  makes the loudest sound?”

We made shakers filling them up with different materials, we then played them and ordered them  from the quietest to the loudest .

We also made some shaker style to take home!

In ICT, we used  Purple Mash  app and  created our avatars. We also had a go at  creating and saving our work online.

In Literacy we were reciting nursery rhymes and sequencing pictures from that rhyme. Our rhyme this week was “I’m a little teapot” 

Have a look at  pictures of some of the work we have been doing.

This week we welcomed the Year 1’s back through our doors. We were so excited to see each other again and though things look a bit different in our classroom and around our school, the children took it all in a stride and enjoyed their first day back. We are so thankful everyone is okay and we are looking forward to making more happy memories.
