This Week/Next Week

Week ending 22.9.17

This Week:

The children were very excited to find our dragon egg had hatched this week; leaving feathers and mess behind! On Friday we headed out on a hunt to see if we could find where the baby dragon was. The children enjoyed planning for this hunt by drawing maps, making lists and painting dragons. 

In numeracy the children have been learning number bonds and how we can use them in our number work.

In topic work we are learning all about different materials, their names and properties. We will use this knowledge on our invention day on the 5th October.

Next Week:

We will be continuing with our test " Tell me a Dragon".  The children will get a chance to design and describe their own dragons. We are going to make a life size dragon to have in the classroom using various art skills. 

In Numeracy we will be finishing our number sense sequence.

The children have enjoyed starting our work on our text " Tell me a dragon." They were very excited to find a dragon's egg this morning in our class garden. We are hoping that it might hatch and we will have our own baby dragon to care for! The children have designed and described their own dragon's eggs.

In Numeracy we have been working on basic number sense; exploring numicon and pattern in number.

In topic we have started learning about different materials. The children have already used this knowledge to build some dragon traps of their own.

On Wednesday we will be going for our first walk of the year around the village. If you are around to help please come and let us know . It will be an exciting journey, but I can't tell you more as the children are yet to find out the purpose of our outing!!

This Week.


The children have settled really well into red class this week. Our new starters in both reception and year one have quickly become part of the class and school. We have been looking at the idea of growth mindset with the children;encouraging them to persevere and to keep on trying. This will be a continual,  underlying focus as we move forward through the term.


Next Week.

We will be starting our work on the book " Tell Me a Dragon." The children are very excited about this and can't wait to begin. We will be creating some dragon eggs and making individual designs. In Number we will be assessing the children's knowledge and using this to move forward in our use of basic number skills.
