Last week we celebrated Book Week. We learned about Maria Montessori and how she changed education to encourage children to be free, curious and responsible. We wrote clues about our favourite subject at school and read them to Year 2 who tried to guess what it was. We also got to share a book with Class 5 and had The Jolly Postman read to us by Margaret M. It was a busy week and the children’s costumes were all absolutely great!
What a busy week! As well as it being Book Week (see next week’s blog post!) we have also had a visit from Reptile Life and been on our school trip to Tower Bridge. Here are some pictures of all the fun:
This week in maths we started our new unit Mass and Volume. We have been doing lots of measuring in Class 1 – finding out how many cubes different objects weigh using the balance scales and measure and comparing the capacity of different containers.
Next week we will begin our multiplication and division unit, starting with counting in 10s.
This week in PSHE we learned about being responsible. We read different scenarios and wrote ideas about how we could act responsibly and help.
After half term we will start our weight and volume unit in maths. We will be using words such as heavy and light to compare objects and exploring the capacity of different sized containers. In English, our class text will be Traction Man by Mini Grey.
Well done to all of Class 1, who wrote their own fantastic versions of The Three Billy Goats Gruff this week, replacing the troll with their own grumpy character and changing the reason that the goats wanted to cross the bridge.
Keep a look out for pictures of our new Three Billy Goats Gruff classroom display…
This week we have been thinking about how we care for God’s wonderful world. Well done to Mas and Chuigo who shared lovely ideas on how they care for creation, including walking to school instead of using a car and recycling.
Keep a look out for our new God’s Creation display which we will be working on over the next couple of weeks!
Next week we will be starting our Place Value to 50 unit in maths so it’s a great time to get started on counting from 0-50 and 50-0 at home!
