Rowan class have been learning about Planets, in Science, this week. We talked about their features and the order they are in. During our lesson I showed the children, using sheets of paper how far apart each of the planets are. Here are some videos of the children participating in the activity. We had lots of fun! ?
Every morning the children in year 1 come straight in to their tables and get busy with fine motor skills activities.
We have been learning how to write Kennings.
Our Kennings are poems about us.
(Insert Willy Wonka music!)
This week Oak class are thrilled to be the first class of the year to win the golden dustpan for having the cleanest classroom and cloakroom!
Here we are proudly showing off our prize!
Today in Year 1 we have been rehearsing a verse from a poem in groups. We added our own actions then performed them to the class.
Today we have been exploring colour linked to the seasons.
In History, we have been thinking about when the Stone Age happened and where it would lie on a timeline. We spaced ourselves out on the field to help us understand how long ago it was. If you look closely, you can just about see Fletcher at the end of the field.
It has been a fun filled week here in Oak!
New teacher, new work and catching up with friends!
This week has all been about growth mindset and getting our brains in order ready to start the hard work which is coming our way.
Here are some pictures of us working hard in maths investigating the stair challenge!
A new academic year and the children have already made a strong start across the curriculum.
Most importantly, we have spent a lot of the week practicing and deepening our growth mindsets.
In maths we have learnt that mistakes are useful, speed isn’t as important as truly understanding and that tough challenges expand our mind!
The brain is a muscle, give it a workout!
In Rowan class we are refreshing our growth mindset, so we are starting Year 5 with positive and optimistic outlook. We can do it! ?
