W/B 11th September : What a wonderful first whole week in Class 1!


We spent our first whole week together following our new class routines, timetable and continuing to explore our new learning environment inside and outside.


Our morning routine of settling in and warming up to learning consists of a self register, book vote and for Y1 tricky word practice. I love to read those morning sentences! It's also a chance for Miss Watkins and I to catch up with our focus readers.


At 9am we have our worship, Class 1 have been fantastic at showing respect and understanding of what is expected during our whole school assembly. It was lovely to hear their singing voices this week during our first hymn practice. I think the children also enjoyed our first bible meditation - it was a very calm start to our learning on Thursday!


It has been great seeing the Reception children working so well with our Maths resources, we looked at number recognition, sorting and ordering numbers this week. Y1 are well into our new unit on place value making use of our new white rose workbooks to demonstrate their understanding - I was really impressed with their reasoning skills today.


Breaktime is another opportunity for learning and the children have all taken part in our snack station - selecting the correct coins for each snack. It's great to see such healthy choices being made, we have had apples, satsumas, tomatos, carrots and pears this week - yummy!


We go straight into our Little Wandle phonics after break, I have seen some great letter formation from the Reception children who have been working very hard in their first week of phonics. Y1's have been reviewing phase 3 phonemes this week and are super spellers!


Our English text is the traditional tale Little Red Riding Hood, the Reception children loved retelling the story using finger puppets they had made. Y1 have been working on their sentence structure, predictions and exclamations - we had lots to say about the Big bad Wolf! We even had a picnic basket full of treats that Little Red delivered to her Grandma....or so she thought!


The children had their PE lessons with SH Active this week, Gymnastics and Dance. We have also started on our Music, RE, Geography, Science, PSHE and DT topics so a very busy first full week.


I want to say how very proud I am of all of Class 1, their efforts and enthusiasm this week have been wonderful to see. Thank you to everyone who has shared your 'Let your light shine' awards and certificates, it's so lovely to hear what they get up to outside of Class 1!


W/B 6th September : What a fantastic first few days in Class 1!


We spent our first few days together learning new routines, names and exploring our new learning environment inside and outside.


Our whole school focus for English, PSHE, RE and Art this week was the beautifully illustrated 'Flower Power' by Caroline Wedd. We were lucky to have Caroline visit us, read the story and tell us all about the inspiration for her book. 


The Y1's wrote about their summer holidays, and completed a baseline Maths assessment for our new topic of 'place value'. Our new Reception children spent time in our different classroom areas exploring new resources and making new friends. We spent lots of time in our outdoor classroom enjoying water, sand and small world activities. The mud kitchen, trikes and role play are some of our favourite areas and everyone enjoyed our new snack station shop at break time.

Minibeast poems! We collected nouns, verbs and adjectives to use in our creations!
