This term we are using the book Elephant by Petr Horáček as a stimulus for our writing. The children have been writing predictions about what they think is going to happen next in the book with the characters Ben and the Elephant. When Ben and the elephant meet tigers the children acted out what would happen next…
In topic, we are looking at rainforests and different types of animals. To introduce the topic, we looked at domestic and wild animals and the differences between them. The children then had to sort the animals into domestic and wild. Afterwards they had to write what a domestic animal is and what a wild animal is. This is the fantastic work they came up with.
We loved having visitors in our school showing us cool gymnastic moves. We got to use the inflatable runway and climb on the climbing frame in the hall!
This week we got to go into a planetarium and look at the night sky. We also got to learn about the stars and how some stars make constellations! We loved being inside the dome!
Some of us have been building stick houses in our forest area. We worked in teams and had to see if we could make our houses super strong. We tested them by huffing and puffing just like the Big Bad Wolf!
Today some have us have been sorting materials into different groups. We were given a basket full of different objects and had to decide with our partners which groups to sort them into. Can you guess what our groups were?
This week, the children have been exploring their classroom and are getting to know the different areas. We have talked about the class rules and have written about what we did in the summer holidays. Class 1SC have also been looking at pencil control, counting and describing different materials.
Below are some pictures taken from this week.
