Wow! What a busy first few weeks we have had since starting the new school year. The children have already learnt lots of new things.
We have enjoyed the Elmer story in English. The children have acted the story out and imitated it. So we started with a patchwork elephant called Elmer and now have a spotty tiger called Strike.
In Maths we have been working on number bonds to 10 using a part whole model and 10 frame.
We have been on a nature walk looking for natural materials. The children found lots of different things like leaves and sticks. They really enjoyed doing this and were very enthusiastic when they had found something interesting.
Our trip to Sudbury Hall was fantastic. The children had a great time looking at and playing with the different toys. They played with toys old and new. We discussed about the different materials each toy was made from and how they would play with them. The children had to sort out the toys into three groups regarding how the toys moved.
This week the children have taken part in a fantastic harvest performance at the church. They all sang beautifully and remembered all the actions. Well done to all the children. Also the children had a wonderful creative open afternoon. They made lanterns, hedgehogs and did some great colouring.
Well done to all the children in Green Class who have got 100% attendance this term.
The children have written the beginning, the middle and the end of their story about Strike the tiger. They tried really hard and they produced some amazing writing.
Have a wonderful half term.

The children have come back after half term and have been working hard. On the first day back the children brought in their own favourite cuddly toy from home for our teddy bears picnic. The children enjoyed a biscuit and some milk with their cuddly toys. The children also took their favourite toy on a tour of school.
We have had a special visitor in Green Class, called Snowflakes. They arrived with an important letter, asking the children if they were good at following instructions, working as a team and solving problems. The children wrote a letter back and posted it in the letter box at school. Whoever dropped Snowflakes off and the letter left snowy footprints along their way.
In English we have been looking at instructions. We have made split pin elves and written a set of our own instructions. We had great fun making the elves.
In Maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes.The children enjoyed this and worked very hard. They used the shapes to make repeated patterns. Also we have been working on numbers 11-20. We have used cubes, counters with ten frames and dienes to help us. They have worked their socks off.
For the last couple of weeks the children have helped create a beautiful workshop display for our classroom door. Some children decorated an elf and some children coloured in pictures of toys. We all had great fun helping to create something so magnificent. Well done to everyone.
On Wednesday this week the children all enjoyed a Christmas dinner and wore their lovely christmas jumpers. They all did so well and looked fabulous!
Don’t forget about our Christmas performances on Thursday 19th 10am and 2pm. Slips will be given out on Monday with your allocations. The children have worked so hard and are looking forward to performing.
Have a fabulous weekend!
Welcome back, we hope you all had a magical Christmas!
Before we broke up for the holidays the chrildren had such a busy week. They completed their Santa sacks, they made Christmas cards and they made some beautiful calanders. They also took part in not one but twin fantastic Christmas performances. Well done children.
We also had a very special visitor, the children were so excited.
Green class have had a very busy week. The children have been on a plane around England looking at landmarks. They had to hand their passports to Mrs Baxter and then be shown to our seats by MIss Timbrell. The children had a great time and sat beautifully.
The children got to taste some tradtional English food. Scones with butter and jam. Yum!
