Children in need!

16 Nov 2017

This week in maths we have been learning to tell the time! We can now read a clock at o'clock and half past the hour! In literacy we have been writing instructions for our guitars and origami. In DT we have made our origami cats and dogs! Hopefully we get enough tissue boxes and loo rolls in to make our guitars next week! In computing this week we have continued to get used to the keyboard by typing up our firework poems and and saving them in our own folders. In forest school we have been learning how to identify different trees, focusing on looking at the bark. In music we are in full swing of learning our Christmas production songs! 


TOMORROW is children in need. Would be great to see lots of the children in 80s costumes with a £1 donation to accompany. There are also sign up sheets outside the classroom to sponsor our courageous teachers! The donation money can be brought in on Friday or you can pay it on ParentPay! 


Show and tell next week is badgers.


Next Tuesday is our trip to the Unicorn Theatre. Check outside the classroom for the winning parent volunteers!


Next Friday we are off to the library so please let me know if you can come along!

Partitioning, onomatopoeia and shadows!

09 Nov 2017

Another busy week in 1EK!

In maths this week we have been looking at partitioning 2 digit numbers. It has helped us to know that, for example, the number 24 isn't just a 2 and 4 next to each other but a 20 and a 4. In literacy we have been looking at onomatopoeia and how we can use it to describe fireworks. We then wrote our very own firework poems which were fabulous! In science we created dark dens under the tables and used torches to help create shadow puppets. In computing we have been practicing our typing skills and written our first piece of work on word! In PSHE we have been discussing our new topic 'getting along and falling out' and coming up with ways to deal with different situations we might experience in the playground or in the classroom. 

Tomorrow is our class assembly at 3 o'clock! 

Show and tell next week is hedgehogs and the theme is poetry or performing.

Next Friday is Children in need and the children can come in dressed in an 80s outfit! A £1 donation is suggested for this. There will also be a chance to sponsor some teachers who are doing different things for charity. It has been rumoured that Mr Plews will be waxing his legs and that a certain year 5 teacher will be doing it for him! 

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to help on the school trip to the unicorn theatre. I will be picking names out of a hat today! Check outside the classroom for the lucky winners.

Friday 10th November is our class assembly. It will start at 3pm. It would be lovely to see you all there!

It would be great if the children could bring in a dragonfly costume to wear for the assembly. I have said to the children they can just wear blue or green and any kind of wings are fine!

Here is the link to the song we are singing in case the children want to practice at home! (We are only singing up to 1:49)
