Class teacher: Mrs F Sanders/Mrs F Rosevere
Welcome to our dedicated class page! Whenever we have got anything we would like share - photographs, letters, exciting work we are doing - we'll put it on our page.
Welcome back after half term! We hope you had a relaxing break and are ready for the new term.
Term 1 - September 2018
Welcome back to school! We hope you all had a happy and enjoyable holiday and are ready for the adventures ahead.
Thank you to all those who were able to attend our workshop on Year 1 expectations and the Reading/Writing elements of our curriculum. Please find the slideshow and handouts below.
Maths - We have been learning about place value and making our own number lines to play games. We have also been learning about ordinal numbers and how we can use positional language e.g. first, second, third.
We have also been really enjoying our project 'Tell Me a Story' and have been retelling and making up our own stories based upon Katie Morag, Tree, Night Pirates and Handa's Surprise. One of our challenges was to work in teams using our Learning 2 Learn muscles (perseverance, listening, collaboration) to build our own basket for Handa's fruit and design and complete an obstacle course carrying our fruit safely from one end to the other!
We had a fantastic day joining in with all of the activities. The sun was shining and we all worked together in our house teams to cheer on our team mates and make the day really enjoyable for everyone. Congratulations to St David's for their overall winning result!
We had great fun with our Global Learning Project. It was linked to the World Cup. The country we learnt about was Mexico. Mrs Anaya came in to talk to us about Mexico
We learnt poetry, we made up our own actions for a poem about dinosaurs, called Roar!
These two documents will help explain the Phonics Screening and give you an idea of what it will look like. If you have any questions, please come and ask us!
We have enjoyed a whole day of creating art work. Our TA, Mrs Owen is a very talented artist. She showed us slides and portfolios of her work. We focused on 3 things - practising to make sure we tried out our ideas first, being careful with the resources we were using and adding detail to our creations. We used a light box to trace over pictures, created art using pastels and watercolour pencils and mixed different mediums together to make one piece of work.
We took part in a Rock Steady workshop. We enjoyed finding out about acoustic and electric instruments and joining in with the singing. Some of us even got a chance to be a member of the band!
Owls all had a go at tennis with coaches from TeamBath tennis. It was good fun!
Year 1 children enjoyed their Outdoor Learning Day. Here we are making suet bird feeders; much needed in the snowy weather!
We enjoyed our visit to Bath City Farm - even though it was very muddy! We fed chickens and goats and saw frogs in the pond.
Can We Celebrate Chinese New Year?
We learnt how to carry out subtraction by taking away and counting back along a number line.
We learnt about rhythm and pitch with Music Minis. We are using our egg shakers.
We had visitors from St Gregory's who taught about China. Here we are learning about what a Chinese school looks like, and some Chinese words.
Can We Build a Home for an Inuit?
We had a Service of Reconciliation. We thought about times we had done things we felt sorry for. We wrote them on little bits of paper and burnt them in our fire pit, saying a prayer to God to help us make the right choices in the future.
In Maths we learnt how to partition numbers into tens and ones using money. We worked in groups to support each others learning.
We had a visit from the school nurse. She taught us how to wash our hands and clean our teeth properly. This machine showed us if our hands were still dirty!
Can We Train a Dragon?
Parents' workshop - expectations in English and Maths
We have been learning how to form our numbers correctly.
We enjoyed our Dragonese day, we made dragons from salt dough.
