Mathematics

This week in Maths we have been learning to represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20. Today we were able to use what we had learnt to demonstrate our skills through various learning challenges.

New Classroom Layout!

Last night Mrs Moden moved the classroom around! The new layout is designed to motivate pupils to become more independent in their learning and take more challenges to stretch themselves.

This morning, pupils came into the classroom and were so focussed in their morning starter activities.  Let’s hope that this continues and pupils are developing their diamond, sapphire and ruby powers this week!

Happy New Year

Welcome back! We had had such a busy week this week!

Our focus this week has been handwriting. We have done a range of practical activities, including turning ourselves into a giant line guide! We have explored our writing target books and realised that 5 out of our 20 targets are linked to handwriting!

Don’t forget you can keep practising this skill at home using pages 32 onwards in your planner.

Autumn Term Round Up!

This morning we have been looking back at the Autumn Term and reflecting on some of our favourite learning experiences and the achievements that we are proud of.

Some of our favourite moments were:

Bethany: I enjoyed the horse riding day.

Lewis: I liked it when we went to Cast Theatre.

Charlotte: I liked making the instruments with our parents at the Wow Wednesday.

Niall: I liked riding the biggest horse at the Equestrian Centre.

Annabelle W: I liked writing our Great Fire of London diary.

Grace: I enjoyed making our London models and when we made the big London outside.

The achievement we are most proud of:

Morgan: I am proud of how neat my work is now I am a year 1 because before it sometimes had holes in it.

Arthur: I think my concentration has got better.

Lily: I am proud of my handwriting because it is much neater and I am starting to join properly.

Callum: In Early Years I didn’t join in as much and now I do.

Well done Class 1, we are so proud of you for all you have achieved. We can’t wait to see what you are able to do in the Spring Term!

 

Helpful Home Learning!

After a discussion with pupils yesterday afternoon, we thought about how we can make Christmas and the run up to Christmas better for our families (as after all they are working hard to make Christmas amazing for us!)

Pupils came up with lots of different ideas for things that they could do to help their families. It was lovely to hear parents full of praise this morning and grateful for the help that they have received overnight!

How have your children been helpful? We would love to hear all about their good deeds and love they have been sharing!
