This week in maths, we’ve been busy comparing numbers and finding one more and one less than a given number. You will find your maths homework this week all set up ready for you on Education City. Please find your logins stuck in earlier in your books. Don’t forget to carry on the great work you have been doing on Reading Eggs at home too!
Today the year 1’s were learning the parts of the body. We drew around each other and labelled the template with different body parts. After we had done that we talked about the 5 senses.
Hedgehog Class had a fantastic time up at forest school today. We were learning about water and water flow. The children were given various pipes and cartons and told to go out into the woods to experiment with water flow. They will then use what they learnt this week to creat a huge “Drumbles river” as a class next week.
9th October 2019 – Homework – Over the last few weeks we have been looking for signs of autumn around the school grounds and up at our forest school site. Your task for the next 2 weeks is to look for signs of autumn when you are out and about and create a project on what you have found. You may like to create an information book, a collage, a mood board or a painting – it’s entirely up to you! Your homework will be due in on Monday 21st October 2019.
Next week in English, Hedgehog Class will be beginning to learn about Non-Fiction texts and comparing them to Fiction texts. It would be really helpful if they could bring in something that they know a lot about on Monday so that they can give the rest of the class some information about it. This will form part of our lesson on information texts.
The reception children enjoyed developing their number skills this morning using the computers and iPads. Some of them found using a mouse for the first time quite tricky but they were starting to get the hang of it. They all did a super job and were getting so quick at the games they were playing by the end of the lesson.
We had a great time up at forest school this morning looking for signs of autumn! We were really lucky with the weather this week! We went on a hunt throughout the whole forest in groups to look for autumnal items. We found lots of things including various sticks, fallen leaves, conker husks and berries.
When we thought that we had collected enough things, we were challenged to make a picture of anything we liked. Here are our results…
We are going to do this activity again after half term to see if there are any different autumnal items as the season progresses.
