  • The Tiger Who Came To Tea
    We have had lots of fun this half-term with our story The Tiger Who Came To Tea. We received a letter inviting us to a tea party, and then created story maps, orally retold the story and innovated upon it. We have absolutely loved inventing our own stories and have many different animals come to tea such as monkeys, dinosaurs and ponies!

  • Our Tea Party!
    We had a fantastic time at our tea party. We received a surprise letter from Sophie and when we got to the hall we saw that the tables had been set up! We tried milky tea, buns, Victoria sponge cake and cucumber sandwiches. We loved every moment, and it really inspired us to talk and write about the story.

  • Our day at the farm
    We had a fantastic time on our first school trip of the year, which took place in December. We caught our first glimpses of the birds as soon as we arrived at Herrings Green Farm, and couldn’t wait to get inside. Over the course of the day, we saw a huge range of flying creatures, and were amazed by the eagles, owls and hawks - and we all got the opportunity to hold two owls (called Marmite and Oscar) too. Everyone was very brave! We also had the chance to watch a bird show, where they flew very close to our heads.After lunch we went to visit the farm, where we saw Shetland ponies, donkeys and a very large shire horse. We got to touch guinea pigs and a very large rabbit! It was a fantastic (if a bit chilly) day and everyone had a great time - and we can’t wait to find out where our next school trip will take us!

  • Christmas Craft Day
    We finished off the Autumn Term with a fantastic Christmas Craft day. Family members were invited in to join their children (and teachers) in making a range of Christmassy items from card, felt, beads and glitter - which gave us a great chance to practice our cutting, gluing and planning skills, as well as talking about colours, shapes and the effect we wanted to achieve. Having so many family members around made the day particularly special, and reminded us of the wider community that the school is a part of - all of which made it a great way to round-off a busy term, as you can hopefully see from these pictures...

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Dinosaurs!
    Year 1 took part in a dinosaur workshop as part of their topic, and we couldn’t resist the chance to join in the fun! The Infant Hall was set up with a variety of dinosaurs for us to explore, and the “Dinosaur Man”, Graham, shared lots of his stories about dinosaurs, helping us to learn about what they ate and how they moved. We were also shown a variety of real dinosaur fossils and learnt all about their history. We were lucky enough to hold Graham's fossilised dinosaur egg too.

  • Own Learning
    We have had many activities related to our topic available to choose from within our own learning time. We have picked a few of our favourite moments from this half-term to share with you.

Our Spring Term Topic:
Farmer Duck
x

Communication & Language:
We will be encouraged to speak in longer sentences throughout the day, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary. Through lots of class and small group talk, we will be supported in becoming more confident speakers, and also will work to improve our listening skills. We will be asked to explain why we are choosing to do particular things and will be supported in using connecting words such as and, because and so to extend our sentences, link ideas and explain our thinking.

Literacy:
Our class book for the next half-term will be Farmer Duck. We will begin by learning the text by heart, supported by actions - so make sure you ask us to tell it to you at home! We will be drawing story maps based on the text, then adapting these to create our own stories, which we will them write and share. We will continue to work on our phonics and letter formation every day, so that we can write simple sentences accurately.

Maths:
In mathematics we will continue to focus on the teen numbers, ensuring that we can all count confidently and accurately to 20, and can all recognise these numbers when they are written down, too. We will also be learning to add different amounts together, using practical objects to support our work. We will then move on to begin to look at the idea of subtraction, beginning with taking one away and then using objects and practical situations to subtract other numbers, You can help us at home by counting with us every day and looking for the numbers and shapes all around us.

Personal, Social & Emotional Learning
We are going to be focussing on our emotions over the term. We will be thinking about how different characters from our book feel and how we might feel if we took their place. We will play lots of circle time games to help us name our emotions and think about what it means to be a good friend, too.

Understanding the World
We will be looking at ways in which we can group animals, recognising the difference between land, air and sea creatures, thinking about the places where different animals live and beginning to discuss ways in which living things are classified (into fish, birds, mammals etc). We will link in with our topic by thinking about which animals would live on a farm and why they live there. To improve our understanding of technology, we will also be using ipads to find information and share facts. Our class bears will also continue to be sent home every week as we love sharing the special events in our lives with the rest of the class!
