The best thing about writing a class blog is taking the time to remember all the lovely things we have done during the week. It never ceases to make me smile!
This week, we have started learning our phonics sounds, focusing on the letters m and a. We have learnt the letter names, the sounds the letters make (phonemes) and how to write the letter (grapheme).
In maths, the Numberblocks have helped us to learn all about the number 1. We have learnt that the numeral 1 represents one object and what it means to perform an action once and be first in the line.
The children have welcomed our new arrivals to the classroom, baby Kate (Mon-Tues) and baby Petal (Weds-Thurs) and we have talked about what babies need and how to look after them, then we thought about what we can do now that we couldn't do when we were babies.
The most exciting thing this week have been our visits to the new playground equipment! The children enjoyed swinging on the swings, trying out the talking logs and sliding down the fireman's pole. I'm sure they have told you all about it!
Happy weekend everyone!
Week 2 has been a blast!
I'm delighted at how well the children have settled in to their second week at school. It has been a fun-packed few days containing lots of laughs and learning. This week, we have shared our stories and then acted them out in our Story Square, helping to develop our confidence and story telling and performance skills.
We all really enjoyed Going on a Bear Hunt with Jamie from Cosmic Kids yoga. I am a big fan of yoga, so I'm over the moon that the children enjoy it as much as I do! It has helped us to develop our gross motor skills and keep us fit.
There has been some amazing mark-making this week and we have been practising writing our names. In maths, we have been using songs to help us think about the order of numbers. We have also been thinking about our feelings with the story of 'The Colour Monster'.
A virtual high-five to everyone for some super learning this week✋. Have a great weekend!
What a fantastic first week of school we have had! I have been blown away at how kind, considerate, enthusiastic and independent the children in Rock Class are.
We have had so much fun, playing with dinosaurs, building models and towers, investigating water, riding bikes and we even set up a post office in our classroom.
The children have been brilliant and it has been wonderful to meet them all properly face to face. I know that we are going to have a lot of fun together this year.
Well done everyone! Now, let's have a restful weekend before the fun starts again next week.
To Rock Class!
Did you all have a lovely summer? I hope so!
I did lots of walking and camping with my family and we even climbed a
mountain in Wales called Pen-y-Fan!
I can't wait for you all to start school and to start getting to know you all.
We are going to have so much fun together in Rock Class.
Our first topic is called "Marvellous, Magnificent Me!" - and its all about you!
