Spring 2, Week 1

Stars of the Week: Shia and Rory

This week we have started our new class text for the half term, The Wizard of Oz.

We have been introduced to the main character, Dorothy, and her little dog, Toto. In the first chapter, Dorothy and Toto get swept up in a cyclone. We freeze framed different images from the scene, using the description from the text to explore how Dorothy and Toto were acting and feeling.

Spring 1, Week 6

Stars of the Week: All of Class 1

You’ve worked so hard and learned so many new things this half term class 1! In the last five weeks you’ve learned the seven continents and five oceans of the world, to identify different materials and their properties, clockwise and anti-clockwise quarter, half and whole turns, exclamation marks, question marks and lots, lots more! You impress us every day with the effort you put in to all of your learning and you should all feel extremely proud of yourselves. Well done, Superstars!

Spring 1, Week 4

Stars of the Week: Kemena and Martha

This week, we started learning Phase 5 sounds in phonics. During phonics sessions, both Kemena and Martha challenge themselves to think of ambitious vocabulary that contain our sound of the day and are always looking for opportunities to apply new sounds and words in their reading and writing. Keep up the great work!

Spring 1, Week 4

Stars of the Week: Charles and Kirstin

This week, we were visited by nurses from Evelina who came to teach us the importance of washing our hands. We were introduced to Mr Soap and learned that “GERMS ARE NOT FOR SHARING!” The children looked at the germs on their hands before and after washing them under a special light and were surprised at how much soap we need to put on and how long we have to wash our hands for!

Class 1’s Materials Song

Class 1 have been learning this song in science and have requested to share it with you at home!

When you want to hammer a nail into wood,
A hammer head of metal is good
You need something that’s hard enough to hammer other metal stuff
Choose your materials carefully think about all of their properties
You wouldn’t wear paper clothes in the rain or use wood in a window pane
Leather belts bend easily ‘cause they have flexibility
And rubber’s quite fantastic when you need stuff that’s elastic
Choose your materials carefully think about all of their properties
You wouldn’t wear paper clothes in the rain or use wood in a window pane
Paper Plastic Metal and Wood Glass Ceramic Cotton and Wool
Fabric comes from fibre that’s spun and woven into clothes worn by everyone
Natural wool and cotton, synthetic polyester and nylon
Choose your materials carefully think about all of their properties
You wouldn’t wear paper clothes in the rain or use wood in a window pane
Paper Plastic Metal and Wood, Glass Ceramic Cotton and Wool
Choose your materials carefully think about all of their properties
You wouldn’t wear paper clothes in the rain or use wood in a window pane

Spring 1, Week 3

This half term, Class 1 are learning about algorithms in computing lessons. Yesterday, the children wrote algorithms to direct a BeeBot around a map from start to X to find the treasure using our special code!

Spring 1, Week 2

Stars of the Week: Noella and Scarlet

This week in RE, class 1 learned about the Creation Story. Each group decorated one of God’s creation which we then put together on our ‘God’s Creation’ display. We also reflected on how God’s wonderful world makes us feel. Well done to Scarlet and Noella who worked hard on their display work and gave thoughtful reflections on their favourite parts of our world.

Spring 1, Week 1

Stars of the Week: Beatrix and Saraea

This week, we started our new book for this half term The Velveteen Rabbit. On Thursday, the children got into the character of the different toys in the story and explored how they would’ve been feeling at different points of the story. Well done Beatrix and Saraea for your wonderful acting skills!
