Autumn Term Second Half
Welcome to Class 1TD's web page! This class is very lucky because we have not just one teacher, but two!
Mrs Turpin works on Monday and Tuesday, and Mrs Douthwaite works on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
We also have Mrs Simpson our lovely Teaching Assistant and a student teacher Mrs Roberts. We all work very hard, but we have lots of fun.
After learning all about the Human body in Science we are now focusing on other animals and learning animal facts. We will continue to learn about the seasons, using our lovely school grounds to observe the changes taking place as we move from Autumn to Winter.
In early November we enjoyed a successful trip to Malvern theatre to see Stick Man. We then made our own fantastic Stick Men and wrote instructions. Mrs Roberts then looked at the rhyming words from the text.
We have now completed our Self Portraits and they are on display in the Year 1 area, please take a look.
In R.E we are thinking about 'How should we care for others and the world, and why does it matter?' , whilst in P.E we’ve been developing our throwing and catching.
In English we are working hard on our handwriting, focusing on 'One armed robots' (r,b,n,h,m,p) and making sure we start and finish them all in the correct place. We are doing lots of phonic games and activities, and getting better and better at blending words for reading and segmenting them for spelling. All of this helps our writing, which is coming on a treat!
In Maths we continue working on our number formation, as well as enjoying practical work with things like numicon, cubes, bead strings and number fans to help us with counting higher numbers, partitioning into tens and units, and adding and subtracting numbers. We are starting to remember our number bonds to 10, 20 and even 100 and are enjoying counting in steps of 2,5 and 10.
In addition to all this we have had lots of fun working on the laptops, painting, building, cutting, using playdough, visiting the library.... and generally being very, very busy !
We hope you will keep busy at home too-reading together as often as possible and helping your child to reach their numeracy targets of recognising and writing numbers to 10, then 20 , then beyond 20!If you have any queries please do drop in to see us and we will do our best to help.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Christmas Show on the 5th December. We are performing at 2.30pm and 5pm.
