Spring 1, Week 5

Stars of the Week: All of Class 1

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…

Spring 1, Week 2

Stars of the Week: Mas and Chiugo

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!

Spring 1, Week 1 – Happy New Year!

Star of the Week: Jacob and Daniela

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.

Stars of the Week: All of Class 1

Well done to all of Class 1 for your beautiful singing at the Cathedral! You used your lovely singing voices and remembered all the actions.

Autumn 2, Week 5

Stars of the Week: Astrid and Jacob

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.

Autumn 2, Week 4

Star of the Week: Belen and Albert

In English, we have been reading the book A Bear Called Paddington. Paddington loves eating marmalade sandwiches so we had a go at making our own! First, we thought about what ingredients and equipment we would need. Next, we wrote a list of instructions to follow to make our sandwiches. Then we carefully prepared our sandwiches before, of course, getting to eat them!
