Week beginning 26th September
This week we have been enjoying the story of The Three Little Pigs. We read the story and acted it out as well as writing about the characters and their houses. We have been making the pig's houses using different media.
In maths we are counting on as well as saying a number that is one more than a given number. The children have excellent counting skills.
Also, the children have been exploring the materials around them and identifying what/why objects are made of certain materials.
In computing we have been using the system sketchpad to create shapes and then creating one of the three little pigs houses.
In Poplar we now have our class bear called Morris the mouse. On Thursday I set the children a challenge to build Morris a house in which he could fit inside using the Lego. All the groups tried extremely hard and used excellent communication skill when working in their teams. Every Friday one child will get to take Morris home along with his Spider-Man book, to write down all of their adventures together.
Week Beginning 19th September
This week in English we have been reading and enjoying the story of The Little Red Hen. The children tried really hard with their writing, writing about the animals in the story. We have continued to practise our counting in maths and have explored different materials in science.
The children had fun at Sports Day on Tuesday. We are super proud of them for taking part and trying their best in their races. Well done! We wore our jeans for Jeans for Genes Day on Friday. We learnt a little bit about the importance of our genes in assembly.
Week beginning 12th September
This week in English we read the story 'Funny Bones'.
The children wrote about the story and completed some wonderful art work using lollipop sticks.
In Maths we were learning about sorting objects and counting reliably, also focusing on number bonds to 10.
In Science we learnt about the parts of our body, the children were able to label their own body parts and on a diagram.
We did lots of practice for our upcoming Sports Day for PE, and in PSHE we learnt about feeling special and how we can stay safe in school.
