Our last week of the term has been a busy one. We have been learning about money looking at different coins and adding 2 amounts. We have also been adding by counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. The weather has been so beautiful that we have spent lots of time outdoors this week and helped to plan some new areas for the summer term.
We helped to retell the story of The Last Supper to the rest of the school and took part in Stations of The Cross. The children are all now ready for their holiday. Happy Easter to you all 🐣
After a lot of hard work during our Splendid Skies topic the children in class 1 performed a magnificent assembly. They spoke beautifully, sang and recited poems as well as sharing their literacy and art work with all the parents, grand parents and friends of class 1. I was extremely proud of everybody who took part 😃
The day finally arrived for Class 1’s trip to Weston Park Museum. Everybody was extremely excited and couldn’t wait to get on the coach! We had a workshop planned for the morning which was all about how to record the weather. The children all got to wear lab coats like real scientists (meteorologists actually). We were taken outside to the weather station and shown how they actually measure and record the wind, rain, cloud cover, air temperature and ground temperature using different pieces of equipment. We made weather collages and looked at clothing that is worn for different weathers. We all enjoyed lunch and then had the afternoon to explore the museum. Before getting back on the coach we had time to have a play in the beautiful museum gardens and roll down the hill! The children were an absolute pleasure to take out for the day. Their behaviour was exemplary and their enthusiasm and energy was endless! A truly memorable experience.
We have had a week of doubling and halving and finding halves and quarters. We have used different ways to find out about the relationships between doubles and halves and halves and quarters.
In literacy we have been writing about mums for our Mothers' Day cards then painted daffodils for the front.
The weather has been so lovely this week and we have been enjoying our outdoor area and planting lots of seeds.
We had our final dance session today and showed off some super moves! On Wednesday we had our parents' afternoon and evening. It really was wonderful to be able to speak to so many parents and share all of the good work that is going off in class 1. On Thursday we wore odd socks and raised money and awareness for the Down's Syndrome charity.

This week in literacy our book has been "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen. The children have done some amazing re-telling of the story with actions and made some fantastic story maps. We filmed their performances and enjoyed watching them back. Follow the link to join in with Michael Rosen as he performs the story.
In maths we have been halving and doubling everything and anything! Numicon, jewels, cubes, string, playdough, paper cups, apples, pears and then with numbers to 20!
In phonics we have been playing lots of phonics games with real and nonsense words using all of our skills from Read, Write Inc.
Wow! What a very busy week!! We have had (Shrove Tuesday) pancake day, Ash Wednesday, a theatre performance of "The Secret Garden" and World Book Day! The children have behaved so well even with so many disruptions to their routines. Enjoy the photos
It was so lovely to have the children back in Class 1 this week all fit and well. We have learnt a poem this week and have been performing it in groups. Follow the link to hear the poem. We have also started writing our own weather diaries.
In Maths we have been counting in 2s and 5s and doing repeated addition as the beginnings of multiplication. The links below are our favourite counting songs for 2s and 5s.
On Friday it was our British Values day. We listened to the story "Farmer Duck". In this story the farmer is very mean and lazy and he makes poor duck do all the work. We talked about how this was very unfair and that we always try to share the work to make things fair.
