Class 1 Blog

 

20th September 2019

Class 1 have had a brilliant first few weeks! We are enjoying lots of firsts: this week we have had our first full day; first PE lesson; first phonics lesson, and welcomed our parents and families into the classroom for the first time this year.

Our learning theme this half term is superheroes. We have enjoyed designing our own superhero costumes and discussing our dream super powers. The artist Roy Lichtenstein is famous for his comic book style pop art; we have studied some of his work and created our own superhero artwork using some of his techniques.

We have been busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen and learning to follow recipes, while honing our stirring technique to combine ingredients.

We have set up our own Superhero HQ and are regularly receiving calls to action! We have been answering phone calls and writing messages, and using a world map to locate the source of trouble!

In Class One we having been counting and recognising numbers to 20. We have enjoyed playing number games on the interactive whiteboard, and can’t wait to show you how high we can count.

On Monday we went to the Harvest festival at the church. We walked sensibly and were very careful crossing the road. In the church we sat beautifully and enjoyed listening to the story of Ruth and hearing how our food donations will help others.

In PE we have been exploring ways of travelling and are looking forward to using equipment next week.We have also been practicing our ball skills with a coach and are getting really good at rolling and pushing balls.

We have all completed our first piece of writing in our writing books. We worked really hard at sounding out the word ‘am’ and writing our name. We are very proud of ourselves!
Keep checking Tapestry for more updates. We look forward to seeing parents at the RWI workshop at 6pm on Monday 14th October.
