Spring Term Overview 2017

Enjoying ourselves in KS 1 computer suite

We are writing our own versions of Handa's Surprise- We are writing about vegetables- Look how hard we are writing and checking our work

Ash have been programming Beebots to follow a track on a piece of paper- We're finding this very challenging deciding on the correct commands

nearly there!

Ash have been learning about Tinga Tinga artwork from Tanzania. We tried to copy parts of a Tinga Tinga picture, matching shapes and colours.

Ash have been reading and learning the story called Handa's Surprise. We tried some of the fruit from the story- including mango, passion fruit, kiwi and pineapple.

Ash went on a walk outside our school- We were looking at different environments (urban and rural)

Maths - We are working on counting in 1s, 2s and 10s, forwards and backwards. How far can you go?

use the 100 grid below to help you

Spring Term Science  

We have started  looking at materials and the properties of common materials in Science. We have found objects made of metal, plastic, glass, wood (and paper) and fabric. We learned a new word - rigid - as the opposite of bendy. Please help your children at home identify the material(s) that objects are made from, and talk about their properties - hard, soft, smooth, rough, bendy, rigid, waterproof, absorbent, transparent (or see through) and so on. Thank you.

Examples of materials

Theatre Alibi visited our school today- They showed us their play, 'The boy who climbed into the moon'

Here are some of the children's comments about, 'The boy who climbed into the moon':

 

Dylan G enjoyed the part when they were in the taxi driving around.

 

Emilia liked the part when Fortuna was fired from the cannon into the moon.

 

Kenzie really liked the way the stage changed and the buildings became the moon.

 

Rihanna loved the music being played on the accordian and the hang drum.

What we will be learning during the second half of the Autumn Term...

We used a computer program to make a picture and typed our names too.

We had a lovely time sharing our 'What happens when...?' stories with Reception.

Working hard on our writing using our phonics knowledge.

Give your children some help at home with their maths. Oct 2016

 

We have been learning the days of the week and the words yesterday and tomorrow linked to the order of the days. We are still working hard on writing the numbers from 0 to 20 - trying to get them the correct way round and in the correct order. You can use the word doc found at the bottom of this page to help them practise writing the numbers at home.

We are also working on number bonds to 5 and 10 - and have been using counters to show the adding of two numbers. We are learning to write number sentences  (  3 + 7 = 10 ). Look at the recent work below using counters and Numicon. We have been comparing using the words 'more' and 'less' as you will see below.

Adding 2 groups of counters ( bonds to 5)
