Welcome to Beech Class
On Friday the 17th November we went to West Stow Anglo Saxon Village. Beech Class had a great time exploring the museum in the morning and then looking around the village in the afternoon. The children returned to school very enthusiastic about their day.
The children have made a great start to Year 1 although I think we are all very tired and looking forward to our week off. They have been busy working hard in all areas of the curriculum. In maths we have continued with practising addition using the part, part whole model. After half term we will spend two weeks focusing on subtraction before moving onto shape.
In literacy we have continued the theme of Dragons and we have written our own story based on Kassim and the Greedy Dragon. The children practised using adjectives in their writing, as well as using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.
There was some fantastic homework brought in during the last week, I can see that the children have been very busy working on this.
You should have received your parent consultation time in your child's book-bag. Please let the office know if you don't have one.
I promised the children today that I would put this link on the school website so that they could access it at home. It is really important that as well as knowing the sounds, they also know the names of each letter.
Beech Class have settled in really well to Year 1. We have been doing lots of work already this term.
In maths we have been focusing on numbers to 10 to make sure we know them really well. We have just moved on to exploring addition and subtraction using the Part, Part, Whole model which you will be able to see in the photos below.
Our literacy lessons have taken us on a magical dragon hunt around the play ground. We have thought of our own dragon using the story Tell me a Dragon by Jackie Morris to give us some inspiration.
Yoga in PE with Miss Isaac helps us relax and calm.
