1HB have been enjoying their work on Fairy Tales so far this term. They have acted out Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man and have written their own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. They have also taken part in a Growth Mindset activity where they had to design and build a Fairy Tale house out of straws and playdough - we kept going even when our houses fell down! The children are now enjoying making maps and small world play equipment to retell the stories of Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man. They have made some brilliant maps.
Later in the term, the Partake Man will be coming in to help us learn about more Fairy Tales and we will be making moving pictures and writing about what we did with him. Don't forget to send your child's slip back for this event.
In RE, we have been looking at Creation and the children have produced some lovely chalk drawings to tell different parts of the bible story.
In Maths, the children continue to develop their reasoning skills - we're all getting much better at explaining how different aspects of number work. Our addition and subtraction skills have also really improved and we're much more confident now when using a ten frame.
Our handwriting is just getting better and better! We can now write all of the letters in a pre-cursive style and are very good at doing this on our white boards in the mornings. We just need to remember to use them in our books.At the moment we are practising writing words using pre-cursive letters - this is also helping us to learn how to spell the days, months and number words.
In Music we have had a few more recorder lessons and can now all play a b note. We're also getting much better at singing and love joining in with our singing / jiggle songs every morning.
We are very lucky that Mr Mitchell comes in on a Tuesday afternoon to take us for our PE lessons. Later on in the term, we will have a rugby coach and our lessons will switch to a Thursday.
In Science, we have been having fun finding out about materials. This has helped us when thinking about what to make our small world out of.
