Wednesday afternoon - Forest School (wellies)
Meet a Creature
The children all took part in meeting a creature. They listened to the questions about the different animals and were able to identify if they were reptiles or mammals. Those who wanted to touch or hold the creatures were asked to put their hands out, those who did not wish to were able to see them up close without touching.
Art: Frida Kahlo Inspiration
Our topic in All Things Bright and Beautiful which is focussing on animals. In Art we are collaging animals, using patterns from different animals skins to help us decide where to stick. We are using glue and card or paper to do this. We are working in small groups of four to ensure that our animal is complete. We will then hide them amongst leaves like Kahlo does to create a whole class piece. Great fun!
The whole school gathered for Worship this afternoon to sing songs on the school field. We all sat in our bubbles, making sure we were socially distanced and began to sing. The children loved this, joining in with singing and actions. What a wonderful way to end a sunny afternoon.
Autumn One: All Things Bright and Beautiful
Our first topic is called All Things Bright and Beautiful where we will be looking at different classifications of animals and why they belong in each catergory. We will have some reptiles and amphibians come into school so we can get up close and personal with them. In English we will be looking at The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr and You're Not Ugly Duckling; a fairy tale gone wrong. We will use these texts for guided reading so will know everything there is about these books! During Art lessons, we will focus on Frida Kahlo and her work on jungles and animals, creating our very own piece using collage. In Maths we will continue looking at numbers within 20 and work with manipulatives to explore doubles, halves, addition and subtraction. During RE we will be focussing on the Creation, picking up where we left off last year.
Although school remains a little different from what we consider normal due to the events of last year, I hope that we will soon get back into the swing of things. We must ensure regular hand washing and parents, please remember social distancing from classroom doors and teachers! Tapestry is no longer available but I am around to answer questions of queries, although we may have to organise times when we are both available.
I cannot wait to see you all
Welcome to Year One!
Welcome back to school. I am so happy that we are going to be together again in school and I will continue to be your teacher! I hope that you have had a lovely summer break and are ready and raring to get back into the swing of things. We are in our Year One classroom (last year's Year One class) so lining up will be opposite to where we used to be. Our start time will be 8.45am and pick up time at 15.15.
