Children in class 1 have settled down into their new class well. They have adapted to the changes in the curriculum and structure of the day. They have been very busy!
Our topic has been 'Ourselves and home'. The children painted a self-portrait. They thought about the shape of their faces and the colour of their eye and hair.
Self portrait display
Do you recognise any of these children?
This work fed into our science as we set up a couple of surveys to find out which was the most common hair and eye colour in class 1.
The children particularly enjoyed the shape lessons in maths. They described and made their own 2D shapes.
We incorporated maths into our PE lesson.
Purpose for writing
We have a new friend Ted who has joined our class. He has already enjoyed visiting some of the children's houses. The children have enjoyed coming into school and reading out his diary to us all. Ted's diary is really giving the children a purpose for writing. We look forward to hearing all about the different adventures Ted goes on.
We were pleased to see some of the parents at the Harvest festival, where we showed our boat paintings.
This half term our topic will be 'light and celebrations.' We will be preparing for the Christmas play which we hope you will come along and watch.
The children learnt about how Hindus and Sikhs celebrate Diwali and they created their own chalk Rangoli patterns.
