Opening our class Christmas presents from Mrs Mitchell, Mrs Latham and Mrs Hinton and playing with them!
Here are some photos of our Outdoor Learning during this half term. We used the large outdoor area to work with a partner to practise our ‘part whole’ models in maths. We had fun searching for shapes outdoors and playing parachute games. We had so much fun on our ‘Christmas Star Challenge Hunt!’ We had lots of challenges including singing, counting, actions, rolling in leaves, laughing like Santa, hugging trees and telling jokes! We all achieved our challenges and enjoyed a chocolate treat.
This week we have been following the ‘Children in Need - Five to Thrive weekly calendar.’
We have been very active with Joe Wicks and on Friday we joined in with more physical activities and lots of fun Pudsey challenges!
The children have enjoyed learning about Harvest time and saying ‘Thank you’ for our Harvest food.
Have You Filled a Bucket Today?
We enjoyed reading the story ‘Have you filled a bucket today?’ by Carol McCloud. We discussed lots of ideas about how we can help ourselves and others to feel happy.
The story made us think about the importance of giving, sharing and caring. We created a class display of all our hard work!
We started our topic – ‘Wonderful Woodland’ and thought about what we would like to learn. We came up with lots of interesting questions that we would like to find the answers to and look forward to continuing with this after half-term.
We’ve really enjoyed re-telling the story of the Gruffalo following the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach.
We explored the forest with a partner and thought about where woodland animals might live. We then used our geography skills to draw and label a map of the forest.
We had a surprise delivery! A letter from mouse, asking for our help! The Gruffalo was missing and had been spotted in Northop Hall! As quickly as we could, we got on our coats and went out hunting for clues around school and in the forest. We found lots of clues but unfortunately, we did not find the Gruffalo! We decided we should record the story of our Gruffalo hunt. We worked together to create a class story map then we used the story map to help us write about our hunt in our books.
We were pleased to receive an email from mouse at the end of the day to say the Gruffalo had returned home safe with lots of stories to tell the woodland animals about his adventures at Northop Hall School!
Year 1 have been busy developing their ball skills and having fun working together as a team, listening, following instructions and taking turns.
We have been enjoying our independent learning activities too!
Mrs Mitchell, Mrs Hinton and I are so delighted with how quickly the children have settled into their first week. It is great to see how independent they are already, especially when saying goodbye to you at the gate and walking into school. Thank you for your support.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
