Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Our Christmas play; The Inn-Spectors is coming on well and we are looking forward to sharing it with you during the final week. Please remember to send back your ticket requests for the productions.
In English, we have been busy reading Can't You Sleep Little Bear and retelling it from the point of view of Little Bear. As we were writing as the character, we had to remember to use the word I instead of Little Bear - the children did very well! We are now finishing our Autumn Term with the story "Footprints in the Snow". We will be making predictions, writing an ending and creating new characters.
In maths, we have finished our addition and subtraction unit and the children have done the end of unit assessment. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding those as they have now been sent home. Our maths learning now moves to shape where we have explored 2D and 3D shapes. We have looked at 3D shapes and their properties. We will be looking at 2D shapes and their properties. We will be sorting shapes and seeing which ones we can spot in the environment.
In our afternoons, we have been making moving pictures in DT. The children looked at different books with various moving parts. They then created three types of moving pictures, learning about the basic mechanisms. We have been sorting everyday objects into the materials they are made from and thinking why things are made out of certain materials. Mr Norman taught us some football skills as part of the 'College Town World Cup'.
Our PE days are Fridays and just like in Reception, you wear your PE to school on this day. We will also get to visit the school library every Friday and you will be able to choose a book to take home. In year one, you get two reading books a week. One of the books is placed at the colour you are reading and you can use it to practise your word decoding. The other book is the colour below - this book is to be used to help develop your comprehension skills (answering questions about the book as you read).
