In RE today we discussed God the creator and how Christians praise and say thanks for the world. We all thought about things we are thankful for.

We investigated the structure of Little Red Riding Hood by creating story maps. The children could then use them to retell the story verbally, ready to write their own versions!

Some of our amazing writing this week! We have listened to the story of Little Red Riding Hood and used adjectives to describe the characters, checking capital letters and full stops in our sentences.

Where are we in the world? That is our geography question to investigate this half term! We used Google Earth to locate the United Kingdom and then Edingale. We looked at aerial photographs of the village and located key areas.

Flower Power! On Wednesday we met Caroline, the author! All our work was linked to themes in the story and our school values. We are all hoping to grow and flourish together this year!

Our first week back at school! We love our new classroom!

In RE this half term, Class One have been learning about charity. We have explored what charity means and why it is important to treat others the way we wish to be treated. The children in Class One decided that they wanted to host a bake sale for their fundraising event. They made signs, baked and decorated cakes and ran their own stall. All money raised will be donated to the Christian organisation, Tearfund. Well done Class One; what a charitable act!

In Class One this week, we enjoyed getting creative for Big Frieze week! We explored the big stories in the Bible and made our own artistic representations using canvases for ‘Creation’, ‘Fall’ and ‘People of God’. Well done Class One!

In PSHE, Class One learned about people in our community who keep us safe. The children did a great job at describing the different roles of these adults!

In phonics this week, Reception have been reading and writing words ending in ‘ed’. They have been working really hard to recognise the three different sounds that past tense verbs can end in, including ‘t’, ‘id’ and ‘d’. Super work!

In RE this week, Class One learned about the importance of the Golden Rule. We discussed how we like to be treated and how it feels when others are unkind. The children then thought of ways that they can show kindness and be a good friend at different times throughout the school day.

On Monday morning, Class One arrived at school to find an almighty mess! Our role-play had been destroyed and there were books everywhere! After reading our new story, ‘Nibbles the Book Monster’ we created wanted posters to try and find this cheeky creature! Class One also wrote blurbs for the book and used their inspectacles to proofread and edit their writing!

This week, Class One went on a trip to Conkers! We had such a fun day which involved lots of exploration and an exciting bug hunt led by a ranger! Class One remembered lots about their habitat learning in Science and used this to help create their own bug hotels for a range of different creatures!

In Science, Class One learned about how camels have adapted to surviving in a desert habitat!

Reception children explored mass this week in maths using balance scales. They were all able to use mathematical vocabulary such as, “heavier”, “lighter” and “equal to” when describing and comparing the mass of different objects!

Class One started learning about capacity in maths this week. We used different materials and containers to explore and show our understanding of the new mathematical vocabulary! Each group correctly labelled their containers using accurate terminology to describe the different capacities!

During worship this week, Class One read the Bible story, 'Daniel and the Lions'. The children made some fantastic links to our new worship theme, respect!
