Fly Me to the Moon

This half term we are exploring the topic of space. We had a suprise on our first day back, as we found something had crashed in our wildlife area. There was lots of different objects and even some green gloop.

Planetarium

Thank you to everyone who donated on space day. This allowed us to have a visit from a planetarium. We were all very excited to enter the large dome in our hall and really enjoyed learning about the sky above us, how to tell a star from a planet and all about our solar system.

Science Week 

To enhance our space topic we had a space science week. We visited other classes where we did lots of different science experiments including: making plastic, making slime, making fizzing Jupiters and moon sand. 

We had lots of fun and even got to take some of our experiments home with us.

Planets 

We have been learning a lot about the planets and their characteristics and the order they orbit the sun. We have researched what each planet is like and recorded the main features such as: their temperature, if they have rings or moons and how big they are.

English

In Year One, we all take part in Read Write Inc from 9:00 to 10:00. In this time we learn our sounds, letters, how to decode and read words and how to spell them. We also learn how to write sentences using finger spaces, full stops and capital letters and as we get better with our writing we then make our sentences more interesting using 'power words'. To help your children I have included a video which shows you how the graphemes are pronounced.

Sound Pronunciation Guide

Learn how to pronounce pure sounds from Set 1 Sounds through to Set 3 with 5 year-old Sylvie.

Maths

From 10:00 to 11:00 we, as a school, do our maths lesson. Within this we learn number and shape, space and measure. This includes how we write our numbers, place value, addition and subtraction, shapes and how to measure things. The children learn though mainly practical activities at the begining of the week and then record what we have learnt towards the end of the week. On a Friday we have a challenge day. This is when we practise what we have learnt during the week and apply this to a problem.

The class really enjoyed making clay whales. They decided whether their whale was a toothed whale or a baleen whale. The children then made their whale to look like their chosen whale.
