KS1 superstars!

We have had an amazing week in KS1. Lots to celebrate…

Lots of people have been working so hard in their learning, have shown that they are kind crew members and have been making good choices. We have had some awesome readers, getting or reader of the week as well as lots of reading certificates that have been achieved too!

Crew Rodgers and Crew Good won joint attendance this week, with 100% so get to keep Paddington and Jemima for the week! I wonder who will get Paddington or Jemima next week?

We are all so proud of the children! Thank you to everyone for continuing to work hard, get smart and be kind! Keep up the hard word, and maybe it could be YOU next week?

Staying safe online!

Class 5 reminded ourselves how to stay safe online in crew yesterday, and made some beautiful pictures that show people being kind to others online, just like we would in person, others drew pictures to show asking our trusted adults for help if we get stuck or see something we are unsure of and some people drew the difference between right and wrong whilst using computers and being online. I am so glad we all know how to stay safe, even whilst we are online!

TIME for maths

We’re looking at time in Maths this week, we started with the days of the week and months of the year. Class 5 worked collaboratively to put the days and months in the correct order. To help us we have been singing lots of songs all week too. It has been great to hear everyone practising the days of the week to the Addams Family!

Out of this WORLD!

WOW Jenson. Big well done this week for being Out Of This World for class 5. Jenson has been a superstar this week, he’s been making great choices, writing beautiful sentences about the animals we have looked at and has been displaying all of our HOWLs. Great job, Jenson, keep up the hard work!

Researchers for the morning!

Class 5 spent the morning looking at different types of animals, we practised saying the word ‘characteristics’ and ‘amphibian’ and now we are experts! In groups the children helped each other to read the fact files for different animal groups, in order to complete a scavenger hunt sheet to find out which animal groups had certain characteristics. We found out the only Mammals give birth to live babies, which is how we know what a shark must be a fish, because it lays eggs!

In the afternoon we even wrote some beautiful sentences about what we had learnt. Now, class 5 are talking about how birds have feathers, are warm blooded and lay eggs. After practising, we can say the word Amphibian and know that if an animal is an amphibian, it was wet skin, webbed feet and also lay eggs!

On-line Learning

Expedition/English, phonics and maths slides for this week are now available on Google Classroom. There is also a link on there to our brand new expedition site where you can access the beautiful work produced by our children as well as links to useful information and further study. The site is a work in progress and will be updated regularly by year 1 and year 2 staff.
