Friday 29th September - All About Me

We kick started our all about me topic by creating split pin versions of ourselves to learn our body parts and organs. Speedy fact from Rose, your largest organ is your skin! We then created some beautiful family portraits and talked lots about looking after ourselves. We also received a toothbrush and some toothpaste Florence’s quick tip, you need to brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day! After writing some sentences with the correct punctuation we moved on to reading and performing poems and rhymes and then finding rhyming words. To tie in with our topic we have been writing some senses poetry.

We have continued our work on our numbers not only making sure they are written correctly but also with tens and ones, number lines and more and less. This week we have started adding numbers and we’re practising our number bonds.

We are getting through our guided reading books and are excited to listen to some stories on our new story phones next week.

In addition to all of this we had a visit from a man to teach us Tri Golf. We had some great fun and learnt lots.  If you get the golf ball in the hole in one shot it’s called a hole in one – Jake .

We think our classroom is going to feel a little bit empty next week as Lily is moving to a new school but we wish her the best of luck and will miss her. 

Friday 8th September

The first thing we all noticed this week was the changes to our classroom. The whiteboard has been moved so we have lots of room on our new colourful rainbow rug, plus it's really bright so we've recommended that Miss Atkin gets some sunglasses or a sun hat. We also have clouds and a hot air balloon in our reading corner. Already this week we have started our work on numbers and even had a go at some writing. The year ones have had their first trip to the phonics forest and the year twos are getting ready for their new spellings. We're settling in well and getting used to our busy timetable. This year our topics will be changing every three weeks so come back and see what we get up to while learning about our first topic All About Me.
