Morning Work

Every morning the children will change their reading book then settle down to morning tasks. These range from activities to develop their motor skills, to English and Maths tasks. 

English

To launch our new book, we investigated some strange rocks that appeared in the school. The children came up with some wonderful ideas for why they were there - from a witch's cauldron to moon rocks.

The children thought about what Beegu's planet might be like. They painted their ideas before writing descriptions. From lava and slime filled planets to planets full of rabbits, the children had some wonderful ideas!

To help the children plan and write their own stories about new aliens, they created a new character out of clay. I wonder what amazing adventures these aliens will have!

Maths

We will begin year 1 by exploring basic concepts in number. 

The children have been thinking about ways to sort and group items and are working well as teams to explain their reasoning.

Religious Education

To begin the year we have been thinking about the Bible. We discussed key themes within the Bible and the children drew their own pictures to reflect significant concepts from the Christian faith.

Science

The children have been learning about different materials and their properties. We went for a walk around the school grounds, spotting things made from different materials and thinking about why they are made from that particular material.

As we move through the seasons, we have begun to think about the signs of Autumn. The children went for a walk to spot signs of Autumn and then drew and wrote about what they had seen.

The children looked carefully at their faces and drew some amazing self-portraits. I am sure you will agree that they are a brilliant likeness!
