Autumn 2:

Our class have been looking at:

English: We have been reading a fabulous story about Billy’s bucket and we created our own buckets and what you would find in them.  Then we looked at the conjunction because and wrote our own sentences about why people could not borrow our bucket.  We have also been learning to retell and sequence a story.

Maths: The children have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and the differences between them.  We have looked at the faces, the edges and the vertices, the children enjoyed our practical lessons to explore which shapes roll and which ones don’t.
We have also been learning about money and the values of coins and notes. We had our own little shop in class where we could go any buy our favourite things. We could work out which coins or notes we needed to pay with and then work out how much change we would need.

Science: We have had lots of fun in science looking at forces and magnets.  We enjoyed testing things to find out which ones were magnetic and which ones were not.  We also enjoyed exploring forces with the push and pull toys.

Topic: Our topic this term was The Local Area.  We have loved using google street maps and looking at our own houses.  We have learnt where our school is, the leisure centre and the bus station are and we have also been learning to use a compass.

Forest Schools: Even though it has been a little bit colder this half tern we have still loved getting outside.  The children had so much fun making popcorn and hotdogs on the bonfire, poppies for our Remembrance Day, we loved making footballs out of straw and having a penalty shoot out for the world cup day and we created an assault course which the children had to get around while carrying a ladle full of water to put in the bucket and then throw mud at the target at the end.

We also had a lovely visit from the Canal and River Trust who made bug houses and seed bombs with us.

Extra activities

We have had a wonderful time with our extra Christmas activities. We performed a nativity at the church (we hope our parents all enjoyed it as much as we did), we had Christmas jumper day, party day, Christmas dinner and a fabulous visit from Santa and a trip to the theatre to watch the panto.

Spring 1:

This term we will be looking at Roman Britain.

 

Reminders:

Children will be doing forest schools on a Tuesday (please wrap up warm) and P.E. on Tuesday and Friday’s.  We will also be swimming on a Wednesday.

Will let you know of any important dates in the dairy and via Dojo.
