Welcome to Classes 1 and 2
Christmas is coming! We have been having fun making some festive Christmas decorations to hang in the school hall.
We had a very special visit from a Dentist who talked to Class 2 about the importance of keeping our teeth clean. The children were such respectful listeners and shared lots of their own ideas about having clean teeth. We were surprised to see that Bucky the Horse came along with the Dentist to help show us how to brush our teeth!
Here are some photographs of children using their teamwork skills in collaborative play. We have boats, aeroplanes, animal towers, assault course creating and so much more! The children are sharing ideas, listening to each other, finding new ways to do things, solving problems and making links in their learning. These are all really important skills for becoming fantastic learners.
We are continuing to investigate and explore our new sounds through lots of varied activities. As we have learnt quite a few sounds we are now finding out how we can put them together to read and write CVC words. We have also learnt some tricky words and have found them hiding outside! We also have a cosy book corner and have enjoyed taking our reading outside, sharing books with our friends.
This term we are continuing to focus on one number a week alongside noticing larger numbers in our environment and thinking about their order when we count. We are taking a closer look at ‘how many’ each number represents through singing songs and activities in our classroom. We are learning to count quantities and match them to numbers that we know and it is great to see children investigating this in different ways in their child-led play.
Our Class Charters based on our learning metaphor for 2019/2020 which is Exploration.
