Pufferfish Class Weekly News

Monday 19th October 2020 – Thursday 22nd October 2020

 

Wow! What a busy week! In English we have used verbs and adjectives in our writing; we then created a class book based on the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see? In phonics we have focused on the digraphs ‘er’ (spider) and ‘ur’ (fur). In maths we have continued to practise number formation and solve number bond problems independently.

We hope you have a lovely half term.

Monday 12th October 2020 – Friday 16th October 2020

 

In English this week we have been reading ‘Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?’ Using this book, the children then discovered how to use adjectives and verbs in their writing. We have continued to do our daily mile and the children have particularly enjoyed playing with the new outdoor PE activities. In phonics we have been practising the ‘ow’ (crow) and ‘oa’ (boat) digraph and listed words that contain these sounds. 

 

We hope you have a fantastic weekend,

Monday 5th October 2020 – Friday 9th October 2020

Pufferfish class to the rescue! Once again Olaf needed our help this week; he woke up on Monday morning with red spots all over his face! We had a zoom call with a doctor and she gave us some advice of how to help Olaf feel better. The children have written some fantastic letters to Olaf; we are so proud to see the enthusiasm in writing this week. In phonics, we have focused on the digraphs ‘ow’ and ‘ou’; the children have practised using these sounds to write words and simple sentences. Please encourage your child to use ‘pure sounds’ when reading, for further details please search ‘How to pronounce pure sounds - Oxford Owl’ (video).

 

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Monday 28th September 2020 – Friday 2nd October 2020

 

This week we have been writing questions to prepare for a zoom meeting with a firefighter! We asked the firefighter our questions and recorded his answers in our English books using punctuation. On Monday, we officially started our ‘daily mile’ walk around the playground to stay fit and healthy. In art we have used colouring pencils, pastels and crayons to create some fantastic self portraits. On Wednesday we dressed up in gold, yellow and orange to support the ‘Gold Geese’ charity; we would like to thank you for your amazing generosity.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

 

Mrs Steed, Mrs Cotton, Ms Binns, Mrs Jones and Mrs Coombs.

 

                                                           

 

Monday 21st September 2020 – Friday 25th September 2020

 

Wow! What an exciting week in Pufferfish class. On Wednesday we had a zoom meeting with two detectives! They explained what their job involved and showed us some equipment, such as, a radio, handcuffs and an identification badge. The children then used their knowledge of phonics to create labels for the detective's equipment. In science we have been learning about the five senses; we then wrote about how we use these senses when visiting a beach. In maths, we have been comparing different amounts, learning how to use the greater than and less than signs and practised number formation. In art we have created some fantastic Picasso inspired portraits using collage and colour.
We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Monday 14th September 2020 – Friday 18th September 2020

 

In English this week we have been learning how to create a list; we asked Mrs Player to talk about the medical equipment she uses and the children then wrote lists independently. In maths, we have sorted objects in different ways, practised number formation, talked about the importance of counting reliably and recording our answers accurately. We have welcomed a new child into our class this week and it has been an absolute pleasure to see how kind your children really are. 

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

Thursday 3rd September 2020 – Friday 4th September 2020

 

The children have settled into Year 1 quickly and have adapted to the new school routines well. We saw lots of happy faces on Thursday and we look forward to working with you all this year.

 

Year 1 team.  

Wow! What a fantastic start to year 1! The children have settled into Pufferfish class beautifully and we have been talking about our ASPIRE values.
We have discussed the importance of class rules and remember to ‘Always be the very best that we can be’.

 

We are overwhelmed with how your children have come into school and adapted to their new routines.

 

We hope you have a wonderful weekend

Monday 7th September 2020 – Friday 11th September 2020

 

This week we have been writing about our summer holidays; the children used their knowledge of phonics to write simple sentences. We also discussed how to use capital letters and full stops in our writing. On Monday, the children very much enjoyed their swimming lesson and we were very impressed how quickly they got changed. On Wednesday, the children enjoyed their ASSA session in the beautiful sunshine; they listened carefully to instructions and completed five different activities. In music, we listened to the song ‘Lovely Day’ by Bill Withers and explored how rhythm and beat is used.

Please encourage your child to read and practise their wordsheet every night, your support is invaluable and really does make a difference.

 

We hope you have a lovely weekend,
