Welcome to Class 1!
This week in Class 1...
Welcome back to all our lovely Class one children and what a first week we have had. We have been settling back by hearing about lots of lovely things that the children have been doing over the Easter holidays but also looking forward to events coming up. The children have been busy making their hats ready for Saturdays Mad Hatters Parade and they look fabulous.
We have also had a very exciting arrival of some eggs and an incubator for the children to watch grow and learn about the life cycle, before watching them hatch and being able to hold the chicks before they are returned. We have made a calendar to keep track of how many days we have had them and the important job of re-filling the water in the incubator so the eggs have the right humidity to help them grow and develop. We have talked about how the incubator slowly moves to keep the eggs moving just like when a chicken would move them around a nest.
In Literacy this week the children have begun looking at the story 'The GIANT Jam Sandwich'. This has led the Year One children to think about noun phrases, spot them in the book and then create their own. Reception children have continued to do some great practice of their tricky words and forming sentences with these words. In maths we have used the Bee Bots to understand position and direction. The children then used their bodies to turn a quarter, half or whole turn and challenged their friends with different routines of turns.
You should all have recieved the Summer term curriculum letter today which details more about what the children will be learning this term. We will also be giving you some dates for your diary shortly.
It has started to get hotter over the last few days and hopefully this lovely weather will last, can we ask that children bring a named suncream to school. This is important on a Friday as we will be visiting the allotment and at present there is little shade up there (we are working on providing shaded areas).
For PE Mrs Leat has asked that children have a spare pair of socks in their PE bags and that children have their hair tied up.
Hope to see some of you over the weekend at Mad Hatters.
