Look what we have been up to this week.....
Week beginning 11th November 2019
 
Class Topic - Wonderful Weather
 
We have been up to all sorts this week in Swift Class.  We had our first nativity rehearsal with Puffin and Wren Class.  The children have all been given their roles - please check your child's book bag for their costume letter.
 
In writing this week, the children worked together to build a giant treehouse for all of us to squeeze in to.  The children worked in 3's to build A frames and then we all worked together as one big team to put the cover on it.  When we weren't building treehouses, the children learnt about the features of a diary and we wrote diary accounts from Bear's perspective from our book The Boy and the Bear.
 
In maths, we started our geometry unit and have been focusing on learning about 3D shapes including their names and features.  We have even spent time sorting them in to different groups and have used various materials to make them.  Next week we will be concentrating on 2D shapes.
 
In science we started our a new topic - Everyday Materials.  The children looked at different examples of glass, wood, metal, rock, paper and water.  We then went on a hunt around the school grounds to find examples of these materials being used in everyday objects and took photos using our class ipads.  
 
In phonics we have been learning about the long vowel sounds for a, e, I, o and u.
 
On Friday morning, Puffin, Swift and Wren took part in Joe Wicks Big Move event for Children in Need.  In the afternoon, Kestral joined us for buddy reading - thank you Chloe-Ella and Quinn who read to the whole class.   Puffin and Swift had a Pudsey extravaganza following this - there was drawing, colouring, lego, clay modelling.... we had a great time.  Thanks to Puffin for joining us!
