Teddy Bears Picnic
We have had a great day with our teddys making Paddington's favourite marmalade sandwiches, sharing stories and taking our bears on a materials hunt looking for objects made from glass, rubber metal and stone.
Class 1 were very excited to welcome our special visitors today - The Firefighters and their fire engine!
We had a great time this morning looking at the fire engine, sitting in the drivers seat, holding the hose and learning about the job of a firefighter. We decided that it is very different now to when The Great Fire of London spread in 1666.
We listened to stories of how the firefighters have saved many people and how their special clothes help to protect them. The firefighters have give Class 1 a special mission - the children will be coming home and looking tonight and looking to see if there are smoke alarms fitted in their houses and asking if they have been checked recently.
Well done Class 1!
The children in Class 1 were very excited to be learning how to write sentences this week. We have been ordering pictures and writing sentences about The Great Fire of London. We practised saying the sentence out loud to a friend to make sure it makes sense. Then we used a capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, a full stop at the end and finger spaces between our words. I am so proud of how hard everyone has worked this week and the children have produced some lovely writing.
Well done Class 1!
We also looked at adding numbers together in maths this week to find how many altogether. This has been tricky but some fantastic number sentences have been made and accurately worked out.
Wow! What a busy week!
Harvest Festival, Macmillan Coffee morning and a week packed full of The Great Fire of London. Class 1 were very excited to hear the story of how the events un-folded and have learnt many facts about how the fire started and why it spread so quickly. Ask your children a few questions to see what they remember. I hope they can tell you a few facts.
In science, we began our work on materials and their properties. The children have been busy sorting and naming materials and in maths this week we have been continuing to focus on number and place value. How did we fit all that in?
We have worked very hard!
Another fantastic week in Class 1!
This week the children were very excited to listen to and write simple poems about fire fighters and fire engines. We also sang the rhyme London's Burning to help our understanding of the Great Fire of London.
We even had a fire engine delivered to Class 1, specially made by Mr Ferrari, which the children have loved painting, decorating and playing in this week. I'm sure they will have fun using this over the next few weeks!
WOW what a great week! Roald Dahl week has been a triumph.
The children have enjoyed many special Roald Dahl activities. It started with a special storyteller coming into school and performing one of our favourites 'The BFG' and ended with a special film screening. The children sat and listened beautifully.
The week has been jam packed with lots of other Roald Dahl themed activities including creating a collage of the BFG's house. Our class book this week was 'The Enormous Crocodile. We have been busy measuring and counting cubes to match The Enormous crocodile, creating shape pictures of crocodiles, ordering and re-telling the story and making puppets of the characters. I don't know how we have managed to fit it all in!
Welcome to Year 1!
Welcome back and welcome to Class 1.
I hope you all had a great Summer and have come back to school ready and excited for our new adventures.
We have had a busy first week in school and I have really enjoyed getting to know the children a little better with some 'All About Me' activities and looking through those fantastic 'Summer Envelopes.' You really did all have a jam packed and fun-filled holiday!
We ended our week with the School Ambassador Elections. Well done to all the Class 1 candidates, especially those who were very brave and made some amazing speeches.
A big congratulations to our Class 1 winners. I know you will be great representatives for us.
Have a restful weekend and see you all on Monday!
