Another fantastic week in Class 1!
We have been developing our gymnastic skills this week using a range of equipment.
We have been doing some weeding and tidying in the fairy garden this week and added some nice coloured gravel!
We have been enjoying playing an old game that Mrs Gardner’s grandad made. We threw 2 discs then added the numbers they landed on!
We have been practising lots of skills in PE this week.
We moved on from finding half to finding quarter of objects and shapes!
Our skills using spreadsheets are developing. Using 2calculate on Purple mash we used the ‘speak’ and ‘count’ tools to count items.
We have been looking at finding half of quantities and half of shapes.
Our fairy garden project
We have been working hard on our fairy garden again this week. We wrote letters to some companies who sell items for fairy gardens and have received some replies along with some very generous donations of ornaments, decorations and fairies.
We spent some time setting up all the fabulous ornaments and fairies we have been donated today and are really pleased with how it is looking!
The children have come into school this week with such fantastic attitudes, ready to learn and working so hard! Big well done!
We have been doing Multi-skills in PE this week. Practising our balancing, kicking, throwing, running and jumping. It has been great fun!
We have been developing our skills using a spreadsheet program on Purplemash, 2 calculate. This week we practised inputting pictures of animals into the spreadsheet and had a go at making a zoo! We used the move and lock tools so the animals didn’t escape and eat each other!
What a brilliant start to the new term and to the week we have had!
We have been identifying and describing 2D and 3D shapes and using our shape knowledge to identify which buildings would stand and which would fall.
We have been practising logging on to the computers and on to Purplemash!
We explored a basic spreadsheet program and practised inputting numbers, words and images into the cells.
We then wrote some number sentences and the computer worked out the answers!
We have had a great start to our Science week!
We had lots of fun thinking about what a stick could be. We were all really imaginative and came up with lots of great ideas about what a stick could be!
We created our own class book based on the story Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis.
Red Nose Day!
We completed lots of fun Red Nose Day activities!
We have had a very busy start to the week, measuring and weighing in Maths and working on our outdoor garden project!
The children really enjoyed working in pairs to create and decorate the body of a vehicle. They looked at pictures of dumper trucks, ambulances, police cars, prams and trolleys to support their designs. They considered how to join boxes and what logos and features they needed to add.
In the last week of term we will be building our own vehicles, so please start collecting cardboard boxes to use as the body for your vehicles.
