Strange Sightings in School
Unit 1 were faced with a crime scene this morning... a strange trail of glitter and a lot of mess was seen in the library.
After some detective work, the children were emailed a news report which stated that a huge snake had been spotted slithering through the school grounds on Friday!
The children have since created WANTED posters for the venemous creature, describing it using careful vocabulary... will the beast be found?
The Exciting Launch of Bug Club!
Unit 1 are very excited to announce that we are now allocating books electronically, following our weekly guided reading sessions. This is a fantastic new resource which the children are already thoroughly enjoying. The children are able to answer quiz questions based on the books that they read, earning coins which can then be spent on rewards!
Children have all been given a username, password and school code which allows access to the site. Details of these have been stuck into the front of their Reading Journal. The website link to follow is www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
We would encourage all parents to attend one of our two, short workshop sessions, allowing you to see how the site works as well as ask any questions you may have.
The sessions will be held in Bats Class and will take place at the following times:
Monday 30th September – 3:30pm - 4:00pm
Thursday 3rd October – 5:00pm – 5:30pm
Perfect Place Value!
Unit 1 have worked hard this week to demonstrate their understanding of number. Year 1 children have focused on sorting, counting, reading and writing numbers, representing these in many different ways. Year 2 have been working on representing 2-digit numbers using a variety of resources, as well as partitioning and recombining numbers using a part-whole model.
English - Autobiographies
Maths - Place Value
This is Me
Our first theme this year is 'This is Me'. There will be lots of exciting learning taking place, focusing around art, geography and PSHCE. Children will be developing their vocabulary as well as learning the skills of sharing opinion, compromise and having an awareness of self, others and wellbeing.
