Weekly Round-Up 

This week, despite starting a little wet, the weather has been much better, which meant we could finally have playtimes on the field and enjoy some outdoor learning!

It was great to speak to you this week during our parents evening calls; thank you for giving us your time.

As part of our English work this week, the children have compared ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’ stories and used the conjunction ‘because’ to explain which we preferred. We also created our own solution to the pesky seagull problem! The children did a great job at writing these up using this term’s learning.

In Maths the Year 1 children have enjoyed learning about ‘mass’, using the balances to weigh and compare objects. We also recapped one more and one less using numbers to 50.

We completed our art focus on printing this week. The children created their own printing tile and then used these to create multiple prints, inspired by Andy Warhol – messy but fun and some great results.

ARTS WEEK 2021

The first week after half term will be our annual arts week. This year we are using a text as our focus; planning our English and arts activities around this text. If your child has access to one of your old shirts/t-shirts that could be worn to protect their school uniform please bring it in (named) on Monday 7th June, the start of term 6.

We are planning lots of different activities and will put together a film to share with you as we are unable to hold an exhibition again  this year.

BUG CLUB

The children have all got a username and password for Bug Club, which is an invaluable reading resource. Please support your child in accessing this resource and if you have any difficulties please get in touch. It would be great if your child could access Bug Club at least a couple of times a week. Not only does it help your child with their reading but also the comprehension of what they are reading.

Weekly Round-up 

In English, the children have worked hard on their letters to Mr Grinling this week and are looking forward to ‘posting’ them next week. These will be sent home for you to have a look at. Their letter writing has included many processes, including looking at an example of a letter, use of the conjunctions ‘and’ and ‘because’, questions and expanded noun phrases.

In Maths, the children have continued to look at fractions – finding quarters of shapes and amounts.

We had a real treat on Wednesday afternoon – we were invited to watch Year 6’s dress rehearsal of their Indian dances. The children choreographed their own dance pieces which was very much enjoyed; some of the audience joined in trying to copy the moves. It was great fun.

Weekly Round up

We have continued with our Seaside topic this week and have looked at the conjunctions ‘and’ and ‘because’ in relation to our text the Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. We have orally composed sentences using these conjunctions and written some in our books.

In Maths we have started our work on fractions. We have focused on a half this week and we have found half of shapes, objects and amounts. Next week we will move on to working on quarters.

During our art session we are focusing on printing this term. We will be looking at the work of two famous artists from the past-William Morris and Andy Warhol; both significant figures when looking at the impact they had on art and printing.

In geography we have looked at and described St Ives. We found it on a map and watched a tourist board clip to give us more information. The children made their own fact files about the town.

‘School Street’ began on Wednesday, an initiative to try and make the streets around schools safer and limit traffic. We have spoken to the children about the importance of staying on the paths, despite the road being closed, whilst waiting to come into school-we don’t want the children to think that roads can be used as a place to play!

We hope you’re still getting out to add to our Street Tag score, despite the less than desirable weather! Thank you for taking part.

Weekly Round-up 

A shorter week and another busy week which culminated in our support of the NSPCC Number Day. Thank you very much for your support, the NSPCC does an invaluable job and hopefully the children have a better idea of their role in helping to keep children safe. 

In Maths, the children have been looking at making equal groups through sharing – the beginnings of division. This will lead nicely to our work with fractions next week.

As part of our English work, the children have looked in more detail at using exclamation marks in their writing. We have now looked at one word exclamations and writing exclamation sentences starting with ‘what’ and ‘how’. They used all of this knowledge to write a recount of the story.

The children have been working on throwing with accuracy in PE over the recent weeks. This week we put all of our skills to use and took part in a throwing golf competition! In Geography, we looked at human and physical features at the seaside, where the children identified and sorted different features.

How are you getting on with Street Tag? On Thursday we were top of the leader board. Please help us to stay on top!
