Week Commencing 11.10.21

 

We have continued our Great of Fire of London topic this week by delving into Samual Pepys' life and his diary. We retold his dairies through drama and actions to help us remember as well as storyboarding the sequence of events through pictures. We have written our own diaries from Samuel's perspective using personal pronouns, feeling adjectives and similes. I am sure your children would like to share some of their creative sentences if you ask them! :) In Maths we have been recapping greater than, less than and equal to and will have a test on all we have learnt this term. We have been creating artwork inspired by our topic drawing timber framed houses as well as creating scenes of London burning with chalk, pastel and cutouts. 

 

Our Stars of the Week this week are:

Scarlett for making good improvements in Maths and English as well as sharing her ideas on the carpet.

Harry F for always been keen and ready to learn each day with a big smile on his face! 

 

Well done laugh

 

Have a wonderful break!

This week we have been preparing for our Harvest Festival celebration by learning new songs and stories. On Thursday we performed a song and story for the Minister of Calverton Methodist Church which was recorded and will be on our website for parents and carers to enjoy. Thank you to all families who made a kind food donation. 

 

In English we have been learning about fire fighters in order to write a non-chronological story or fact file this week. In Maths we have continued to explore number bonds to 10. 

 

Our Stars of the Week are:

Jack for always trying his very best in each lesson.

Darcie for fantastic focus and taking on feedback to improve her work. 

 

Well done! smiley

Researching fire fighters for our fact file.

Week Commencing 27.09.21

 

This week we were so excited for the fire fighters and their truck to come and visit us! From them we learnt about the differences between the modern fire service and what it was like in 1666 when the Great Fire of London happened. In English we have continued to read our narrative story of the Great Fire of London and have been describing different aspects of the book each day. In Maths we have started learning about part-whole models as we begin to explore addition and subtraction in more depth. 

 

Our Stars of the Week are:

Violet and Alyssa - both for their fantastic descriptive writing which has really developed this week. Well done! :) 

Week Commencing 20.09.21

 

This week we started our new topic The Great Fire of London which we will be doing for the rest of term 1. Our question this week was 'where did the fire happen?' and we have begun reading our new book which describes the event alongside lovely illustrations. In English and reading we have been recounting the story so far and in Maths we have been learning how to order numbers. 

 

Our Stars of the Week are:

Esme for her focus and improvement in Maths.

Hugo for always being so kind to all of his classmates and teachers. 

Week Commencing 13.09.21

 

This week we have continued our 'Me and My World' topic by learning about being healthy. We had a visit from Life Education who came to talk to us about how to keep our bodies healthy and we have been exploring the Eatwell Guide to maintain a balanced diet. In English we read 'Oliver's Fruit Salad' and we even made and tried our own fruit salad this week! It was tasty! We then used this to write a recipe. In Maths we have been leaning about more, less, greater and equal.

 

Our stars of the week are:

Leonardo for his fantastic listening on the carpet and wonderful reading.

Layla for all of her hard work this week and showing great improvements in her writing. 

Week Commencing 06.09.21

 

We have had a lovely first week getting to know each other and enjoying being back in school. Our topic this week and next is 'Me and My World' where we have been exploring family and friends as well as our school ethos and rules. In English and Reading we have been learning about emotions through the book 'In My Heart' and in Maths we have been practising counting to 20. Have a look at our drawings exploring different emotions and our self portraits! 

 

Our Stars of the Week are:

Evelyn for fantastic listening and focus in her work.

Sophia for showing great resilience and following instructions very well.

Well done Evelyn and Sophia! laugh
