PE - Wednesday
The children had a great week this week settling into the new routines of Year One. We really enjoyed sharing the children's 'All About Me' bags. We had all sorts of amazing things inside from teddy bears, to books, to shells, to crafts they had made to leaflets of places they had been. It was great finding out a little bit about the children that we would have otherwise not known and the children were really excited to show them. Well done everyone on your first week back!
This week Year 1 have enjoyed so many things. We have been counting to 100 and we have learnt to put objects in a line to make counting them easier. We have been learning about settings in English, I wonder if they can tell you about them? We also had a whole year group game of 'The Floor is Lava' and we dressed up in our house colours and learnt a house chant! What a busy week!
This week we had a great topic day. We learnt all about families and what it's like to be a Nan. We looked at some old fashioned toys. In English we continued our work on settings and based our work on forests. We learnt that describing words are called adjectives and we enjoyed exploring our own forest school. In Maths we have been working on one more than. I wonder if they can tell you one more than a number that you give them?
Rabbit Class decided to make up their own story using adjectives all based on a picture of a forest. Later in the week we drew maps and used pastels to represent our magical land. Some of us have quite an imagination! Fantastic!
This week we have been working out numbers that are one less. We have also started to compare two groups using words such as 'more, less, greater than, fewer, less than'. We will use these words throughout the year in our Maths work. Next week in English we will be using the book 'Monstersaurus' by Claire Freedman. If you have this book at home why not read it over the weekend?
Rabbit Class - we had a very successful class assembly. Thank you to everyone who came to support the children.
Monday 30th September
We found some monster footprints in our classroom today! We think they belong to the Monstersaurus who left us a story and some instructions.
Hedgehogs Visit The Brick and Tile Musuem!
Hedgehogs visited the Brick and Tile Museum in Bridgwater last week. We had a great time and even went into the old kiln! We also dressed up as Victorian children and made our own clay tiles.
Both classes have now been to the brick and tile museum and had a great time. the children have also really enjoyed this weeks story 'Monstersaurus', I'm sure they have told you all about it! We have also talked about Jesus calming a storm in RE and thought about times when we feel scared and who we turn to. We hope you have a great weekend.
Hedgehog Class - 7th October 2019
Wow! We found a slow worm on the field today. We had a really good look at him and then we watched him wriggle away. We were all very, very excited!
Hedgehog class - maths challenge! 7/10/19
Today we have been comparing numbers and using the greater than and less than signs. Have a look at this website for more information! https://www.mathsisfun.com/equal-less-greater.html
Hedgehog Class visit to Rodway Farm! 14/10/19
We visited the farm today. We saw lots of cows including dry cows and some cows who were in the cow hospital. We also learnt about their food. We saw many tractors as they spread slurry on the fields and we even saw one emptying the slurry pit...smelly! We learnt about milking the cows in the milking parlour and we saw some baby cows who were having some milk. Finally we saw some pigs and piglets - we created a wall so the farmer could move a pig too! We had a great time and we are now going to learn about a day in the life of a farmer in English.
18.10.19 Rabbit Class
Rabbit Class had such a fun time at the farm! Have a look at our pictures and ask us all about them. We are now working on the story 'Rosie's Walk' by Pat Hutchins. We have found a secret story within the story. Can your child explain it to you, if you have this book at home, or if you borrow it from the library? They would love to show you!
Tuesday 22nd October
We all tested materials to see which ones are waterproof so we can make an umbrella for teddy! We put Teddy in a jar and used pipettes to drop water over a material. We then recorded our results in a table. We think we could use foil or plastic to make an umbrella!
