I can't believe we only have one more week left before Christmas! Where has the time gone?

In Phonics this week, we recapped all of our sounds and even practiced reading some tricky red words. We read a range of RWI books to improve our blending and fluency.

In English, we continued to explore our Rapunzel story. Once again, we focused on instructional writing. We thought about the structure of instructions, as well as recapping our knowledge of imperative verbs. From this, we were able to plan our own set of instructions on how to catch a witch. We can't wait to write them next week!

In Maths, we focused on mastering numbers, with a particular emphasis on the number 10. We used our fingers this week as a quick way to identify bonds to 10. What a brilliant effort, team! We also completed our unit on shapes as we focused on repeating patterns. Well done!

In our well-being time, we thought about what we do if we feel unsafe. We spoke about our family, friends, and teachers.

This week in our music lesson, we practiced our Kindness song. We did amazingly well! Our actions were brilliant, and our singing was just fantastic! We can't wait for our performance!

In Art this week, we continued to build upon our knowledge of sculptures. We continued to think about the best materials and how these could be used for artwork. We completed our badges, and they look incredible!

In DT, we continued to focus on our topic of wheels and axles. We spent the week designing and building our egg box cars from scratch. We can't wait to add the wheels and axles to them next week as we all compete in the great Year 1 race-off! Who will win?

In Heartsmart, we thought about what makes us unique. We read the story of "Giraffes Can't Dance" and then spent time playing a very funny "would you rather" game to demonstrate our unique qualities.

On Wednesday, we had a treat as we got to enjoy a surprise Forest School session. We built fires, shelters, and even homes for hedgehogs – how fun!

On Thursday and Friday, we performed our Nativity story to parents and carers. We loved spreading the message of Christmas!

Throughout the week, we also had lots of provision time. During this time, we enjoyed the garden, explored the provision areas in the classroom, and played some role-play games with our friends. It was great to see the construction and mud kitchen areas in full use once again.

What a brilliant week!

Enjoy your Sunday,

Mr. Dale
