we went to the allotment today to visit Pam and Graham. Pam told us lots about bees and how they help flowers to grow. She also told us that bees do a special waggle dance to help each other find good flowers. We also had a look in Graham's pond. We found out he doesn't like frogs. Our sunflowers are growing really well - I wonder who's will be the tallest?
As out end of term treat we had an Easter egg hunt organised by fobbins. We all had a great time looking for eggs. We even had a special visitor too - see if you can spot them on our photographs. I hope you all have a lovely holiday!
We are trying really hard in Badgers' to spell lots of words correctly. Can you practise some of them at home? You could even try writing them in sentences!
Welcome back to all the Badgers! I hope you have all had a lovely break.
We will be working hard this term to impress the grown ups of year one with our Dojo points. We now have a special Dojo cape and crown for the children who earn the most points. These children will be crowned the Dojo king and queen. The king and queen will then gain extra perks in the classroom. Keep your eyes peeled!
This term our topic is 'Art Extravaganza' in which we will be learning about lots of different artist and art forms. We are hoping to turn into little Picasso's - watch this space.
We will also be having a trip to The Hepworth Art Gallery this term. Check your parent pay for information - a letter has been sent out.
We have started rehearsing for our Christmas production 'A Wriggly Nativity'. Can you tell your grown up what part you have been given? Keep an eye out for any scripts, words, costume lists in book bags.
Here we are doing some of our recent got to jobs. We have been trying to memorise the days of the week, months of the year and seasons in order. We need to know how to spell them too! Can you practise at home?
We have also been learning about our planet Earth and in patrticular the UK. We know that the UK is made up of four countries, England, Scotland , Wales and Northern Ireland. Can you tell your grown ups at home what their capital cities are?
This term we are learning all about our new topic of 'space - the earth and beyond'. Can you tell your grow ups at home something you have learnt?
His week we have follower a recipe and instructions to make ginger bread men with the help of an adult. It was quite tricky to weigh out ingredients but we managed. We are hoping they taste really good.
We had lots of fun in our tennis lesson with Andre this afternoon. We learnt lots of ball skills including throwingand catching. We also learnt the split step used in tennis. Andre even let us have a go with the rackets too. We practised balancing the ball carefully. We are excited to see what Andre has in store for us next week!
Super star writers have been learning all about the story of the three little pigs in our talk for writing lessons. We have practised re telling the story. We can now tell the story almost off by heart. Can you use our story map at home to help you re tell the story? You might want to teach your grown ups at home - don't forget the actions!
Welcome back to all our new Badgers. What a fantastic first day we have had in year one. All the children settled into our classroom routine brilliantly, by following instructions and showing us their fantastic behaviour. Because of these we were able to allocate everyone with 'class dojo's'. Classroom 'dojo's' are our new reward system in year one. Each child can gain points by doing a number of fantatatic things within the classroom, such as super listening, reaching for the stars, working as a team and using good manners. Points can also be deducted for poor behaviour, but we know that this won't happen! Miss Brook and Mr Sleigh are looking forward to seeing who gets the most points at the end of the week! Good Luck everyone!
This term we are learning all about ourselves and our local area! We look forward to sharing with you all what we have learnt.
