Week beginning 17th September
This week the children have continued lots of learning about the Great Fire of London. In English we have been looking at the events that took place and how we can order these chronologically. The children have also been comparing London during the fire to now. In Maths we have been looking at different ways of showing numbers to 10 and beyond. The children were really stretching themselves to look at higher numbers and how many different ways they could think of to show that number. In Science we looked more closely at Autumn and the different weather we could expect to see across the seasons. During PE this week, we were thinking about using space to move around safely.
Thankyou to everyone who attended the parent presentation on Thursday, if you were unable to make it there is a copy of the presentation on the website under 'Letters' on our class page. We also sung our harvest version of 'London's Burning' during the Harvest festival on Friday and the children all sang beautifully.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and will see you all on Monday.
Week beginning 10th September
Welcome to Year 1! The children have had a fantastic first week back in Cherry Class and are really starting to settle in to the routines of a new year. The children have been introduced to our topic 'The Great Fire of London' this week and are starting to ask interesting questions and show a real enthusiasm for it. We have read a story called 'Fire Cat' as a whole class text and the children really enjoyed finding out about the events that took place. In English we have written our own questions about what happened and described a scene from London during the fire. In Maths we have been thinking about finding lots of different answers to a question, rather than just one and grouping and sorting objects in different ways. We looked at the seasons in Science and talked about the different months in each season and the weather that we might see in each. We spent some time outside in the school grounds for RE, exploring the world and thinking about how it makes us feel to be outside experiencing it.
We hope you have a restful weekend after a busy first week and we look forward to seeing you on Monday.
