Welcome to Class Four!
Science week - egg challenge
We were challenged to transport an egg from one side of the canopy to the other without touching it and the egg couldnt touch the floor. Lots of problem solving ensued.
Science week - Skittles
Today we experimented with Skittles, which is exciting enough on it own!
We spread the Skittles out in a circle then carefully added water. Then waited and watched.
We were inspired by Andy Goldsworthy to get outside and create natural art.
Great excitement today... we went on the big blue PE equipment.
Child Initiated Construction
Hmm... what shall I create today?
Oh yes, how about the Titanic!
What's that yellow thing in the sky?
A rare event - the sun came out today and so we made the most of it and took our learning outside.
Thanks to Friends of School for our Christmas money - we used it to pay for a visit from Zoo Lab. We had a great time.
We have been adding two numbers (that will equal more than ten) by using the ten frame to create ten then adding the remaining ones.
In maths we were challenged to show our understanding of more, less and equal to.
In geography we have been learning about British landmarks and then we created replicas. We made Blackpool Tower, the London Eye and Stonehenge.
Tens and ones
We have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones.
D&T - Pop up puppets
In D&T we are thinking about moving parts and today learnt how to create pop up puppets.
We have been practising number, making sets and sequencing.
Human and physical geographical features
In geography this week we went into the garden area to search for human and physical geographical features.
This week in RE we learnt about the symbolism of Christingles and then had a go at making our own.
This week we have deciphered shapes when we couldn't see all of it, investigated the properties of 2d shapes and named and labelled 3d shapes.
Forest School - fire
Forest School Dave helped us toast marshmallows on the fire, put it out safely then create traditional tale pictures using the leftover charcoal.
Urban Arts Week - Talking drums
We were inspired by Stomp, an urban drum group, to make our own street instruments. We had great fun creating our talking drums and especially liked drilling the holes in the wooden spoons.
Urban Arts Week - Street dance
This week we have been learning about urban arts and today enjoyed a street dance session with Miss Vicky from Spotlight Dance.
Drama - superhero scenarios
We worked in groups to create scenarios for our superhero characters.
This week in maths we have been practising subtraction.
We have a new pet!
Coco is the latest member of Year One. A white guinea pig with red eyes ( she came with the name Coco - no idea why!) who is currently too small for us to handle but we are all excited for the day when we can give her a cuddle.
We went into the garden area to collect colours of autumn and used them to decorate a wristband.
28 September 2017
This week we have practised 'more than' - we even know the symbol!
21st September 2017
More and less/fewer
Mrs Farley challenged us to show our understanding of more and less/fewer in a million and one ways!

We've moved classrooms and are now settling back in and enjoying the start of our Year One curriculum.
When we were Class Six!
6 July 2017
Chambers Wood trip
We enjoyed making natural minibeasts, going on our own minibeast adventure ( where we found newts under the logs), collected a rainbow of natural objects and built dens with branches and foliage. Not forgetting umpteen visits to the toilet!
We all had a great time and did our teachers proud.
W/c 3 July 2017
Hurricane Sports visited for three days. On the first day we practised track events and on the second day tried field sports. On the final day we enjoyed an inter class athletics event.
Term 6 week 3
This week we have planted beans and are testing which conditions they like to help them grow big and strong.
Term6 week 1
Mr Benn role-play
We've been visiting Mr Benn's fancy dress shop (if you're not as old as our teachers you'll need to Google it!), met by the shopkeeper and taken on an adventure. When we return from our adventures we are writing our stories to share with our friends.
