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!
This week in PE we started to practise our basketball skills. We had a go at bouncing the ball on the spot, dribbling the ball and shooting the ball into the hoop.
From next week, we will be starting a weekly spelling test. Children will receive their spelling list of 5 words on a Monday and the spelling test will take place on the following Monday. More information on this will be sent out alongside their first spelling list on Monday.
This we have been writing stories called A Christmas Adventure. Well done to Aarav and Cameron who came up with excellent imaginative ideas for their stories and worked hard to write their ideas down using sentences. Watch out for the final drafts to be posted here…
Last week, we went exploring to look for signs of autumn. We saw lots of brown, orange and red leaves on the trees and the floor. We also saw lots of bare trees, fungi and berries.
We collected autumn leaves that had fallen and sketched them back in class. Here’s some of our sketches:
Next week we will be starting a new class text as we get into the Christmas spirit called William’s Winter Wish.
