Making learning irresistible

Autumn Term 1

 

Week 1

Maths

We looked at sorting objects trying to think of different ways. eg. colour, size, type of object. We then moved on to counting and did lots of practical activities. Have a look at the photos below. 

Literacy

We listened to the story Billy's Bucket and then imagined what we could see in our own bucket and wrote some sentences. 

Week 2

Maths 

We have been practicing counting forwards and backwards. We have been getting used to writing our answers in our maths books but we have also done lots of practical activities too. Have a look at some pictures below. 

Literacy

We read the story Knuffle Bunny, all about Trixie losing her favourite toy. On Monday we brought in our favourite toy and wrote and painted pictures about them. 

Other news

We have started our topic work which is all about the Gun Powder plot. We looked at pictures of London today and London in 1605. Next week we will start to learn about Guy Fawkes and his plot. 

 

Week 3

Maths

We have been working on one more and one less than a number. 

Literacy

After learning the story of Knuffle Bunny with actions, we were able to write the story in our books. We tried really hard to sound out the words and remember finger spaces and full stops. 

PE

 We have been doing gymnastics in PE for the last couple of weeks. We have been learning different types of jumps and different ways to balance. 

Computers

We are learning to log on to the computer and Purple Mash. We are working hard to find the correct letters on the keyboard by playing the game 2type. 

 

Have a look at the photos from last week below. 

Week 5

Music- We have been trying hard to play the 'C' and 'G' notes on the recorder and Glockenspiel in time with the music.

Whinlatter Forest trip to learn more about animals and their habitats. We also went on a blind trail and looked for autumnal items. 

We have been learning about Autumn. On Monday we went on an Autumnal walk in Cleator Moor and picked up some leaves that had fallen from the trees, some sycamore keys and pine cones.
