Welcome to class RLC!
We enjoyed a STEM workshop learning about the weather . We had to become meteorologists for the day thinking about and investigating different types of weather. We listened to the story Little Cloud.
We made reflective mobiles, wind socks and windmills. We had to to discover which direction the wind was blowing from and how hard it is blowing using plastic bags and empty pop bottles.
This week we are reading this book...
We loved this story and sent Mrs Carter to the shops with a shopping list to buy the ingredients to make pancakes. We then made labels for each ingredient and set up a pancake station. We weighed the flour, cracked an egg and poured in milk and a pinch of salt. Then we whisked it ready to cook. we each chose our own yummy toppings.
In Maths we have been learning the days of the week and talking about time such as Today it is... yesterday was ... and tomorrow is.....
In PE we have did a dragon Dance to chinese music and had our own parade with streamers.
We looked in our garden for minibeasts.
We are sorting animals from the minibeasts and then looked at ways of grouping the minibeasts with other similarities.
We created a bug hotel to keep the minibeasts warm using grass, wood, soil, conkers, acorns and sticks. We enjoyed using the natural materials and exploring their habitats with a magnifying glass.
We have been naming and labelling different minibeasts using our phonics to spell.
We definitely have some great artists in class.
We have been exploring animal patterns by matching the cards together.
In Maths this week we have been learning to add two groups of objects together and now know to find the total we have to count them all. Some have even had a go at writing the number sentence!
We had fun and games at our Christmas party. We played corners, musical bumps, pass the parcel and of course did lots of dancing and enjoyed our party food.
It’s Christmas jumper day today !
Remember, remember the 5th November…
We learnt about firework safety ahead of Guy Fawkes night and we also painted some firework pictures whilst listening to classical music. We discussed the noises they make pop, bang and whoosh !
Have a look at our learning on the story ….
We are learning about washing our hands before we prepare food. The preparations have begun for Harvest soup...
In Maths we have been exploring the vegetables we brought in for harvest soup and we are weighing them and making predictions about heaviest and lightest. We have also been talking about grouping them and counting how many of each vegetable we have collected.
This week we read this story and enjoyed imaginative play using the characters from the story.
We also sequenced pictures to demonstrate an understanding of what happened in the beginning, middle and end of the story. We also drew our own pictures of the story and used props to retell events.
We went on an Autumn trail on the school grounds to look at the signs of the season and to look at the changes we see occuring.
We like making Autumn pictures using paint and other materials. These are for our season display in class.
In maths this week we have been exploring Numicon shapes by counting them and matching them to numbers.
We enjoyed our first week of starting school and as part of wellbeing week we shared the story. Meesha makes friends.
We had a circle time to talk about how we can make friends by listening to each other and playing together. We talked about people who are special to us and what makes us unique.
We made self portraits and talked about our hair colour, eye colour using a mirror to look at our features. We used a range of media including paint and pastels.
The Daily Mile
We like participating in the daily mile every day! We can run, jog and walk around the track. Its helps us to keep fit and improves our minds when learning.
