Class 1 - New Beginnings - September 2021

Autumn 1 2021 - Wonderful Me

Wow! What a super start the Reception children have made to their school life. All the children have settled in very well and making new relationships with all members of the class. We have all been very busy in our COOL Time (Choosing our own Learning) as you can see from the photographs below. 

Summer 1 - Space - Alien Invasion

Over the Summer 1 term we focused upon Space. We enjoyed reading the class book 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy. We had lots of fun using the paint package 2Paint to create our own aliens. We used lots of our creative skills to create planets using collage, chalk and even play dough. We also learnt how to program a Beebot. On the last day of term we had lots of fun making a balloon rocket go whizz across the classroom!!!

What have we been doing in autumn 1 2020

Enjoy our Photo-story for autumn 1!

Autumn 2 - 2020

This half term we have been focusing upon the book 'Stick Man' by Julia Donaldson. 

Below are some photographs of all the different activities that we have done linked to the story. We have had a lot of fun with Sticks!!! 

 

We started off with a stick hunt within the grounds of the school. 

Just look at all the sticks we found!!!

We had lots of fun making all sorts of different things with our sticks!! We made shapes, numbers, animals and dens. We discovered that it was hard to make a den inside so we went and made some outside. 

In class we have been enjoying the story of Stick Man and with a partner we had a try at making a 2D Stick Man. We found it a little tricky but we persevered. 

After making our 2D Stick Man we thought we would try and make a 3D one. For this to work we had to try different ways of connecting the sticks together. We tried sellotape, glue, string, wool and white tac. Oh dear, it was very tricky but we didn't give up!! Look at all our experimenting!! 

Look at what we managed to do with persevering. 

Just look what Rory and Will achieved when using the sticks in Continuous Provision. They worked as a team and finally managed to make a den for our class puppet. Well done boys. 

We took some of our sticks outside and used them to measure different objects. We used the mathematical language 'shorter than' and 'longer than'  each time we measured an object with our stick.
