I am very excited to reveal our new computing area!
This week we started to use the beebots as part of our computing topic on coding! We had great fun and this area will continue to improve our skills!
Can you see who the beebots are dressed up as?
This week our maths is focusing on knowing all our numberbonds to 10 and 20 and the associated subtraction facts, for example…
6 + 4 = 10
4 + 6 = 10
10 – 4 = 6
10 – 6 = 4
How many different numberbonds can you think of?
Can you write them down for our Wow Wall?
Last week we were so busy writing fairytale riddles.
First we read lots of riddles and solved lots of riddles. Then we planned our own riddles and finally we wrote them.
We are excited to tell you that we are entering them into a young writers competition! The first prize is £500!!!
If you want to read any of them, they are on display in the corridor. How many can you solve?
We hope everyone had a super Christmas and New Year. From the brilliant writing each child did this week it certainly sounds like lots of fun was had!
In Class 1 we have already made a busy start to our new theme ‘Once upon a time’, thinking about what we want to learn and exploring new areas and displays in the classroom.
Here’s to a fun filled and action packed term!
The term really has flown by, we have been having so much fun in Australia and have found out so much about the country.
Here is a quick recap of some of the places we have visited and the things we have got upto….
– We scuba dived in the Great Barrier Reef – describing sea creatures and life under the sea
– We explored the Australian Rainforest – Writing poetry and completing artwork
– We travelled to the Outback and found out how different it is to Brandesburton. Our Aboriginal Art gallery was very impressive!
– We enjoyed a trip to Australia Zoo, finding out about Steve Irwin, classifying animals, designing zoos and writing stories.
– We visited Sydney, making models of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and completing art work linked to the city.
Wow we have been so busy!!
Which area of Australia did you enjoy visiting most? Which activities did you enjoy?

The children had fun making and tasting Australian based recipes. They especially liked the Fairy bread and the Australian burgers.
This term we are lucky enough to have chance to work with Clare from Dancestars during our PE sessions, we are having great fun linking our dance to our Australia theme.
Well, we have been back to school a month now and how busy Class 1 has already been…we are all enjoying exploring our classroom, getting busy in COOL time, learning new things and finding out all about Australia! We have flown to Australia, swam in the Great Barrier Reef and we are now exploring the rainforest….I wonder where we will visit next! Keep checking on our blog to find out…..
Well it has been such a busy term, we have been too busy to fill in the blog!
We’ve built dens, made puppet theatres, walked around the village, seen our outdoor area be transformed, learnt about the history of school and where we live, learnt about minibeasts, been outdoor artists and we have even been shrunk!
Class 1, you have been superstars all year, keep working hard in class 2, I will be watching!
Remember to keep reading, learning spellings and practising numberbonds etc. – But more importantly – have a fab SUMMER HOLIDAY!!
