Here’s what we’ve been up to….
This week we have been focusing on our art. We made our own rock pools and a clay sea creature to go inside! The rock pools are going to be Oak’s entry into the village fete art show on Saturday ( 13th July ) – pop along to the church and see if you can find them!
We had such a busy Health and Fitness week, here are just a few of the things we got up to!
We started the week with a whole school ‘Wake and Shake’ session, team games and a whole school ‘healthy’ picnic.
We made smoothies.
We had a great time dancing.
We had our annual fancy dress sponsored walk.
We played football with Josh.
We did speed staking.
We really enjoyed Sports Day!
We went to Walton as part of our Seaside topic and had a lovely day. Acorn and Ash class joined us!
We said a sad farewell to Miss Dutton earlier in the term 🙁
We had a French enrichment morning this week and were with Acorn class. We learned about French colours, numbers, animals and about the capital city Paris. We made the Eiffel Tower and played lots of games and listened to some French stories. The year 5 children set up a French cafe that we enjoyed at playtime!
We all thoroughly enjoyed our last Forest Schools session-
In Science we sorted objects using their properties-
We have been learning about the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch story. We have written some wonderful lists and postcards, please come and look at them on our display!
We also had fun making a sandwiches for Mr Grinling!
We have enjoyed starting our topic on ‘The Seaside’. We have investigated things from the beach, painted lighthouses linked to Literacy, made a moving seaside picture for DT with Miss Dutton and played in our role play ice cream parlour.
In maths we have been learning about ‘lots of’ and repeated addition with Miss Dutton.
Here is a link to the Year 1 Common Exception Words that the children are expected (NC expectation) to read and spell by the end of Year 1. We teach these words in class and do not expect you to test your child at home, they are there if you want to!
