PE is on a Tuesday (Team Jade) Thursday (Team Emerald and Lime) and Friday (all 3 teams).

Fruit is available free of charge daily. Toast and milk are available for the half term via Parent Pay.

Remember you can change your reading book every day! Show your reading record to your teacher in a morning when you come in. 

Your child will have a 'Reading Reward Card' in their reading record. Please read with your child at home each night. If you sign your child's record (they don't have to change their book) 5 times in one week they will receive one stamp. When they have achieved 4 stamps your child will be given a reward in school. If you are unsure please speak to a member of the team. Thank you for your continued support and happy reading!

Autumn Two 2022 

Advent

We are now in the season of Advent where we prepare for Christmas. We have talked about what Advent is and when it starts. We explored an advent wreath and the meaning of each candle. 

Year 2 Maths No Problem

In Year 2 we have started learning all about multiplication. We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s! We started by using repeated addition and we are now learning about commutative law! Ask one of us what this means. 

Year 1 Maths No Problem

In Year 1 we have started learning all about subtraction. We have been subtracting within 10. We have been exploring and mastering crossing out to subtract. Ask us to show you our super subtracting skills! 

History

Our History topic this half term is all about toys. We are going to be learning about toys from the past and present. As part of our pre-learning activity we did some enquiry based learning to see what we already know about toys. 

Anti-Bullying Week

This week we are marking Anti-Bullying week in school. This year the theme is 'Reach Out'. We have discussed how we can reach out to others to ask for help ourselves or to look after our friends. We created helpful hands to show who we can reach out too. We started the week by wearing our odd socks

Design and Technology

In Design and Technology we are learning all about structures. We started by looking at different chairs for Baby Bear and created the shapes ourselves to see how strong and stable they were. We thought about what would make a good chair. 

Remembrance Day

We discussed what Remembrance Day is and who we are remembering each year. We reflected on what this means and how it has changed our lives. We designed medals and did some mindfulness colouring during our reflection time. 

Autumn One 2022

Music

During our Music sessions we have been learning all about the beat. We have practised keeping a steady beat to different types of music using body percussion and instruments. We have also explored the pitch of some music by talking about high and low sounds. 

Religion

During our Bible story sessions we have been exploring the story of Moses. We have listened to the story, done role play activities and sequenced the story. This week we have learnt a song all about Moses. 

Art

In art we have created our own felt! We split the wool fibres, added layers using coloured wool to create our design. We added water, soap flakes and gave it a good rub. Then we rolled them in lots of different directions. 

Science

This half term we are learning all about materials. We started our learning by exploring inside and outside our classrooms to see which materials we could find. We were able to name lots of different ones and talk about some of their properties

Religion

During our Religion lessons this week we have been learning about the Rosary. We worked together in our teams to create a large set of Rosary beads for our classrooms. We talked about how we can use them to pray

Geography

As part of our local area learning we have been exploring maps. We have explored what a compass is for and how to use one! We had a great time on the playground finding North, East, South and West to follow directions. 

Year 2 Maths No Problem

We have made a fantastic start to our Year 2 Maths lessons! We have started to explore the place value of numbers to 100. We have been looking at the value of tens and ones. We have found different ways to create each number using our number bonds to help us! 

Year 1 Maths No Problem

The children in Year 1 have been working so hard in their Maths lessons this half term. This week we have been learning about number bonds. We have been using double sided counters to help us to explore the number bonds

Art

We developed our map drawings into stained-glass style pieces by choosing a section with interesting shapes and colours. Then we created abstract work by cutting and arranging shapes.

Year 1 English

During our English sessions we have been enjoying the story 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear?' We worked together to think about how Little Bear could get ready for bed. We role played this in our groups so that we can start to write some instructions for him!
