Class 1 we have been continuing to learn about the polar regions. We have been talking about different habitats and who lives there.

To celebrate Children's Mental Health Week we have been reading 'The Colour Monster', talking about all sorts of different feelings and using our emotional register.

Our story for the week was 'Goldilocks and the Three Crocodiles'. We talked about similarities and differences to the original story. We then voted for our favourite - Goldilocks and the Three Crocodiles won top spot.

In phonics, we are now learning to read longer words - we are doing a fantastic job! And in maths we have been working hard to compare groups of objects, using 'more than', 'fewer than' and 'equal to'.

Well done, Class One!

Class 1 from the children 

“I enjoyed singing our songs in our music lesson”. 

“I’ve had fun playing in the drawing area with my friends”. 

“I like reading with my teachers”.

“I love playing outside”.

“I love playing in the mud kitchen outside, we made lots of pancakes for our friends”.

Class 1 have been continuing to learn about Antarctica and the Arctic. Our book of the week was ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers, we enjoyed making ‘Lost’ posters to help our own penguin find his way home. We have been practising our sculpting skills, experimenting with clay – using our hands to make different shapes and using the clay tools. In maths, we have been partitioning 5 and are getting really confident at this. In our dance session this week, we were moving like different kinds of robots – we are getting very good at moving to the music. Well done everyone!

Class 1 Children's comments…

“I liked dancing like a dinosaur, I stomped around”.

“I loved building a river in the sand”.

“We’ve been learning about polar bears, they can smell a seal from 20 miles away”.

“I liked pretending to be toys in our dance lesson”.

“I’ve had fun being at school”.

“Playing with my friends, we made a big tunnel slide for the cars”.

“We made a band and played some songs – we were very loud!”.

Class 1 had an exciting trip out to Pizza Express this week. They all watched as Tom, the pizza chef, made the dough, then all made their own pizza. The children (and adults) all had a great morning, and the pizzas were delicious.

We have also been learning about different types of technology, in school and at home. During maths we have looked at artists who use shapes in their work and had a go at making our own.

Our story for the week has been 'We're going on a Bear Hunt', we have enjoyed acting it our together and making our story maps. 

From the children…

I’ve had fun with friends in the home corner.

Singing in the play.

Mummy and Daddy watching me as a donkey.

I liked Mummy and Daddy watching me on the stage.

Mummy, daddy, Mike and Grandma coming to watch our play.

My Mam came to the play to see me be a Star!

I loved my Mummy and Daddy watching the show so much.

Class 1 This week we have been very busy rehearsing for our ‘Wriggly Nativity’. We have made our teachers very proud with our singing and dancing – there is a lot to remember but we are persevering.

We were very excited to discover our water area had completely frozen over – we experimented with ways to break the ice and enjoyed painting it different colours.

We have been learning all about the First Christmas and the birth of Jesus and created our own nativity scene. We also worked together to retell the story.

In our Maths lessons we have been exploring shapes, with a focus on circles. We made our own circles and turned them into something special for our Christmas tree.

Class 1 enjoyed their last trip to the forest of 2022. We had a great time. “I loved the popcorn popping”, “it was so cold, but the hot chocolate made us warm again”.

Our book of the week was ‘One Snowy Night’. We have learned about different animals that hibernate, talked about how Percy shows our Christian Values, and worked together to draw out all the characters. “I like the fox best”, “I think it’s really funny when they all fall out of the bed”, “I love the mole”.

In maths, we have been playing lots of games to help us with our number recognition – Puddles, our class cat, has been helping us with this! “We help Puddles know how many claps it is, he needs us to show him”.

We are working hard to learn our songs and dances for our ‘Wriggly Nativity” and are getting very excited about it.

Class 1 have been very busy this week.

We enjoyed our last session with Emily from CDA and have learned lots of different moves.

We have begun learning our songs for our Christmas performance - a fantastic start, we’re very excited!

Our book of the week was ‘Little Red’, which has a slightly different ending to the traditional tale! We compared this with a different version of Little Red Riding Hood. We shared our opinions about why we liked each story, then voted for our favourite.

In maths, we have been learning all about how numbers are made. We did some printing to show the different ways we can make 4.

In PSED, we have been creating our own houses. We than drew out families to add to them, looking at the differences and talking about why being different is good.

Class 1 It has been another busy week in Class One. We have been talking about Pudsey and Children in Need this week, as well as focusing on kindness and how important it is to be welcoming to our friends. We have been reading the book ‘On Sudden Hill’ and talking about how the different characters feel and why. We also worked with our friends to create some huge monster boxes (friendly of course!), just like in the story.

We are working super hard on our phonics and are enjoying using this to make cards and write our own stories.

We are really enjoying our dance sessions with Emily from Carlisle Dance Academy.
