Well done to all the children who took part in our Harvest Festival. They spoke and sang with such confidence and we hope you are as proud of them as we are!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The children have been thinking about the order of events in their lives. They practiced creating a timeline of their lives so far.
The children made some pizzas. They thought hard about what they would like to eat and they were delicious!
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!
