Year 1 and Year 2 learnt all about Lunar New year. They listened to a story in Chinese and English, tried on traditional Chinese clothing and watched a dragon dance!
This half term are Science topic is animals including humans and we have started to look at different groups of animals. We went bird watching to see what kind of birds we could spot in our playground. We are looking forward to doing some bird watching at home too!
We have really enjoyed learning the story of Beegu and have used lots of drama to help us understand the character. We have 'hot seated' each other, with one person being Beegu and the other asking her questions. We have also used lots of great adjectives to describe what she looks like to act as her mum and dad and write a reward poster to help find her.
As part of our computing topic, we have been thinking about algorithms, the instructions programs need to work properly. We have had a go at giving instructions to others to see if they could make a picture the same as ours. Some great language being used Year 1, well done!
We have missed not being in choral assemblies, so we had a go learning a new good morning song to wake us up ready for our day!
Have a listen and see what you think!
Autumn 1 was a busy term as we all settled back into school and got going with lots of new learning.
We have learnt lots of new texts, such as The Colour Monster and Traction Man, who visited us is school.
We have also had lots of special visitors during our first half term.
Even a dinosaur that hatched from an egg in the hall!
Mrs Foster was very brave
And so was Mrs Stratton-Powell
A baby dinosaur came to our classroom
And he stayed for his lunch
In science we have learnt lots about different materials and enjoyed exploring which materials we could find that were magnetic.
We finished our first half term in Year 1 with a local walk to find all the features of our local area. We spotted a bus stop, a post box, lots of different shops as well as different houses, like a terraced house, a semi-detached house and bungalows.
During our exploration time we have been busy making models and practicing our phonics, to name just a few things!
And not to forget our first disco!
What a busy half term!
We have all continued with a great attitude towards our learning in this 2nd half term and have made our own Poetry Book all about rain as well as writing our own short story about toys.
We had gingerbread men in our classroom! We have decided we must write a letter to Mrs Evans to let her know.
