Clown Fish Class Weekly News

 

 

Monday 7th January – Friday 11th January 2019

 

This week we have been learning about `Growth Mindset’ and `Fixed Mindset’. We have been learning how to embrace challenges, give our best effort, learn from feedback and become inspired by other people’s successes. We have also developed our team building skills through a variety of challenges! We listened to a story called `The Dot’ which has inspired us to create some amazing artwork which all originated from a single dot. This week we have been thinking about our new topic `Wonderful Weather’. We have listened to different poems and written out own poem using descriptive language. In mathematics we have been finding one more and one less than a number. We have also learned how to count on in 10’s from a given number. In science we have observed different types of weather.

Monday 19th November -Friday 23rd November 2018

 

On Monday we have continued to develop our skills in games. This week we have looked at old toys. Thank you for bringing in your old toys for our class `Toy Museum’. We have looked closely at each toy and have compared them with toys from today. We have also looked at toys from the 1960’s and have noticed that some toys are very similar to the toys children play with nowadays. In Mathematics we have been finding 1 more or 1 less and 2 more or 2 less than a given number. We have also been identifying missing numbers and investigating number bonds to 10 or 20.

On Monday we enjoyed our second games session outside and on Tuesday we practise jumping in different ways in our P.E. session in the hall. We have been learning to recognise, describe and sort 2-D shapes in Mathematics. In Literacy we have created our own story about something we have lost, with a clear beginning, middle and end. We also had fun dressing up in our pyjamas for `Children in Need’ on Friday.

We have also been looking at different story starters to help us write our stories next week. In mathematics we have learnt how to double a number, order the days of the week and months of the year. We also found odd and even numbers on a number track. In art we have created poppies to display around the classroom related to remembrance Sunday.

Monday 29th October 2018 – Friday 2nd November 2018

 

In Mathematics we have been learning to halve and quarter 2-D shapes. On Tuesday afternoon we went on an autumn walk to Leigh Gardens. We looked for signs of autumn and collected some items. We had lots of fun exploring and using our senses! Thank you to all our adult helpers, we hope you also had a great afternoon! We used the items to create our senses poem about autumn. We also used the leaves to create leaf hedgehogs with a friend. On Friday we created a collaborative 3-D map of the local area. We then reflected upon our work! We discussed what went well and what we could improve.

We have continued with the topic `People who help us’. We have enjoyed listening to the police community support officer this week and found out about the role she does in our community. We asked thoughtful questions to clarify our understanding. The children gained so much information and it may have even inspired some children to become a police officer in the future!

 

In mathematics we have been learning subtracting and counting backwards on the number-line. We have also been describing our `Happy Family’ characters in writing this week.

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Monday 10th – Friday 14th September 2018

 

This week we have introduced the topic `People who help us’. The children have listened to a variety of non-fiction books about `People who help us’ and discussed the roles of each person. The children have written captions about Mr Robbins our caretaker and how he helps people around the school. In Mathematics they have been counting, ordering and comparing numbers. We have also started painting our self-portraits.

Following our curriculum meeting you might want to see our website where you will find addition, subtraction, multiplication and division strategies under about us/school polices. You will also find KS1 mathematical skills which will give you an insight to what the children will be covering. We are also looking into different ways to help you support your child in Mathematics.

Home learning – To complete the `People who help us’ activities.

Thursday 6th – Friday 7th September 2018

 

In Clownfish class we have worked together to create our own classroom rules and decorated them using our handprints. We have discussed the school values and how we can demonstrate this in our classroom. We have listened to the story `Giraffes can’t Dance’ and wrote what we couldn’t do but now can do. We have revised the ‘Jolly Phonic’ sounds and practised some high frequency words. In Mathematics we have been counting forwards and backwards from different numbers.
