Autumn Term Second Half
This half term the class will have a Dance Day. They will continue to have PE lessons with CM Sports on Wednesdays. Please ensure PE kits are in school every day. Children will need full PE kit including trainers/plimsolls, jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt or hoodie as they will have outside lessons unless the weather is very wet.
In English we have been learning about writing instructions. We have used 'bossy verbs' to tell people what to do. We have learnt to number our instructions to help people follow them in the correct order and to start each instruction on a new line.
We LOVED making jam sandwiches! We followed instructions carefully to make them and then we really enjoyed eating them! Then we wrote our own instructions about how to make jam sandwiches so others could follow them to make jam sandwiches too.
Autumn Term First Half
This half term the children have Forest School on Tuesday mornings. They need to bring their Forest School clothes and wellington boots to school every Tuesday in a clearly named bag. They can wear their Forest School clothes to school if they like and bring their school uniform to change into after their session.
On Fridays the children will have Gymnastics lessons. All children must wear shorts when working on the apparatus. Long jogging bottoms are not permitted for health and safety reasons.
On Wednesdays the children will have PE lessons with CM Sports coaches.
Please ensure children come to school with long hair tied back on these days. Earrings must either be removed or taped over.
Please ensure your child's PE kit is kept in school at all times as they may need it other days of the week too. Please make sure all clothing, including plimsolls or trainers, are clearly named so your child can recognise their own belongings.
Here is the power point shared at the Meet the Teacher meeting on 5.9.23.
In Computing we are learning about Graphics. We have learnt to use different tools on 2Paint on Purple Mash including Spray Can, Lines and Fill and Pointillism. Using our new skills we have created our own pictures. We have also learnt how to turn the laptops on, log in and find the program we need. We have worked hard to use the mouse on the laptop keyboard and have persevered when we have found this tricky. We have also learnt how to shut down the laptops correctly at the end of our lessons.
In Geography we have been learning about the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We have been learning the names and finding them on maps of the world.
We looked carefully at the shapes of the continents on Google Earth. We created our own world maps using photographs of the continents and labels of the continents and oceans.
Today we had our first Forest School lesson in Year 1. It was a beautiful sunny day and wonderful to be outside. Ms Weinmann reminded us of the rules for Forest School to keep us all safe. She showed us how to use a new microscope to look closely at things. We had a lot of fun outside today exploring Forest School!
