‘Happy, Confident and Successful Learners’

Autumn Term 2017

Week beginning 18th September

This week, we will be continuing with our topic story, The Circus Ship, where the children will be finding out what the animals do when they arrive, stranded, on an island. The children will be writing speech, making posters and using their senses to inspire them. In Maths, we will be continuing with counting from 0-10 and beyond, forwards and backwards and later in the week, filling in missing number sequences. We will continue to explore different materials this week in Science and will begin our guided reading sessions at the end of the day.

Tag words will be sent home on Tuesday evening and Maths passports will come home on Thursday. 

Week beginning 11th September

This week we will be starting our topic 'Roll Up, Roll Up' with some English work based around the story, 'The Circus Ship'. The children will be predicting, describing and writing speech for the different characters in the story. In Maths, we will be working on counting and writing numbers to 10 and beyond through lots of practical activities. 

We have had a fabulous week in Cherry Class! The children have all worked really hard and also had fun along the way. We kicked off our circus topic with 'The Circus Ship' story and the children were encouraged to predict what might happen next, write descriptions of different characters and even get into the minds of the circus animals who had been left, stranded in the sea! In Maths the children have been fantastic at representing numbers in different ways, sorting and grouping objects and representing these in their books. In Science, the children became 'material explorers' where they were exploring and sorting different materials, based on their properties. 

We had Roald Dahl day on Wednesday, in which the children mixed across year groups in the afternoon and created some fantastic displays for the library, based on one of the authors books.

Thank you to all parents who attended the parent meeting on Tuesday afternoon and for those who couldn't make it, we have spare copies of the slides and topic maps in the classroom which you are welcome to come and collect. These will also be available on the website from Monday. 

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday!

Week beginning 4th September

We would like to start by wishing you all a very warm welcome to Cherry Class! 

We have started the year with a fantastic week in our classroom; we have looked at repeating patterns in Maths and had a go at making our own, we have written all about our Summer Holidays for the writing wall and we have made some trapeze artists to introduce our topic 'Roll Up, Roll Up'. The children have settled in well to the Year 1 classroom and are already making it their own; they have agreed rules and expectations and have been exploring to find out where everything is. They have also been very excited to use the new interactive whiteboard in our classroom and have used it daily to enhance their learning!

We wish you all a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing you back on Monday morning.
