What a great couple of weeks we have had in Willow Class. Everyone has settled down into a new routine and is working very hard towards their new objectives. Please check out the celebrations tab on the website to see who received a special mention this week.
We have been working really hard with our number formation. We have used paint, chalks, modelling clay and wooden sticks to help us form our numbers correctly. We had great fun finger painting different numbers.
We began our English lessons by having a walk around our local environment. During our walk we were looking for any signs of Autumn. We were also looking for any different cloud patterns that we could find. We discovered that the leaves were beginning to change colour and some of them had curled up and fallen to the ground. We saw berries growing on the trees and saw lots of different clouds. We took clipboards out with us so we could make sketches of any thing we saw that we thought was interesting.
Thank you to everyone who has helped with spellings this week. The children really enjoyed using chalks and completing their spelling activity on the playground. Please continue to encourage your child to write a spelling word everyday. They are words they are expected to be able to read and write and so the more we can do the better!
Our science topic this term is all about the weather and different seasons. We started to think about which months were in each season and predicting what we thought the weather would be like in each season. We pretended we were going on holiday and packed a suitcase of things we would need for each season of the year.
We used different musical instruments to create different weather sounds. We split into four groups and tried to recreate the sound of rain, snow, thunder and sun. It was great fun using all the different instruments.
We have had great fun learning more about the United Kingdom. We have been learning about the different countries and what they look like. We have been watching weather reports and seeing the different weather in different places. Today we created our own weather map adding weather symbols to different places.
I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break and are ready for a great first term in Willow Class. This term our topic is called 'Splendid Skies'. We will be having lots of fun finding out about weather, seasons, Sir Francis Beaufort and other things that happen in the sky.
Please check our webpage regularly as there will be weekly updates showing you all the great things we have been doing that week.
