    Reindeer Crafts

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    We have started creating our Christmas crafts! That means Christmas is just around the corner, how exciting! The first thing we made was a reindeer Christmas card. The children were all tasked with painting their hands and putting that onto a piece of Christmassy green card. We used our thumbs for Rudolph's nose. We added some googly eyes and by chance I found some fantastic stamps which the children used to decorate their card further. These were sent home yesterday and I hope you enjoyed them.

    Poems!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    We have begun looking at the main features of a poem so that we can think about writing our own ones by the end of the week. I was so impressed by their knowledge of rhymes and that they had managed to understand the aabb rhyme scheme we are going for. We identified the features (adjectives, rhymes, similes) and then decided upon a success criteria which we will all work from when we are writing our poems. I am very excited to see the outcome for this fantastic topic.

    Thank you for coming to the dance today. It was great to see everyone - I think they all did a fantastic job, and I hope that you did too. They had all put in a lot of effort, and I think it showed. I apologise for the quality of the photo, it is taken from a video recording.

    Comparing Numbers

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    After learning all about tens and ones I set the children a challenge. I wanted them to start comparing the numbers. They had to once again use < > and =. This meant we were also once again able to watch 'Number Gator' which I for one was very excited about. When we had practiced using < > and = we put it to use with our numbers that had tens and ones.We used bead strings to create numbers in pairs which were then compared. Last time we did this some of the children struggled with it, but this time they all breezed through it! I definitely have superstar maths whizz in my class!

    Poetry Performance

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    To go alongside our poetry topic in literacy we had a go at performing some poems. On Wednesday, we performed a poem as a whole class. To do this we listen to the poem and spotted the rhyming pattern - once again aabb. We then story mapped our poem and thought of actions and pictures which would help us remember. On Thursday we split up into three groups and created - in our groups - a story map, again with pictures and actions, to perform to the class. It was great fun!

    Using dienes

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    In numeracy this week, we have been looking at tens and ones and thinking of numbers mostly between 10 and 20. This means that in a two digit number we have been asking what each number actually means for example in 13 what does the 1 mean and the 3. We used dienes blocks to help explore the idea that the 1 actually means 10.

    Poetry!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Across the school, until the end of term we are planning a fun-filled and exciting poetry topic. I'm sure with our woodland poetry under our belts we will be amazing at this. We started thinking about rhyming patterns and words that rhyme. We had a challenge - we had the letters 'satopine' and two minutes - the children (and adults) had to think of as many words as they possibly could just using those letters. I can honestly say that I was amazed, a lot of the children did better than me thinking of four letter words such as 'open' 'into' 'pine' and some five letter ones such as 'stone'. A great start to an exciting project :)
