Sommie - This week we have read Rainbow Fish and been thinking about water safety. We investigated floating and sinking. Sommie made some great observations and was able to share why she thought some objects floated and some objects sunk. She used a wide range of vocabulary to talk about the objects being heavy, big, light and small. Well done Sommie!
Emma - We have been painting our self-portraits and looking carefully at the features on our face. Emma was able to look in a mirror and see what she needed to paint. She listened carefully to each step and chose the correct colours to paint her face. Well done Emma!
Drew - this week Drew has stood out to all the adults in Class 1. She is becoming more confident and willing to participate in class, and her skills in mathematics are improving every day. Drew has been finding the strategies that work for her, and you can see how proud she is when she shares her answers in class. All we ever ask is that Drew tries her best, and that is exactly what she has done this week. She has been the very best Drew that she can be!
Sophie - this week Class 1 have been introduced to the Great Fire of London in History, and Sophie has shown a very keen interest in it. She has been like a little sponge, absorbing all the different facts we have learnt, and then she impressed the Fire Brigade with her knowledge. She was able to explain why the fire spread so quickly, and she could recall who wrote the diary in 1666 that tells us so much about the Great Fire.
Lucy - This week we have been reading the story Leaf Man. Lucy thought about what she thought Leaf Man might see when he was blowing in the wind. Lucy thought of some great things and then had a go at writing down what she said by listening to the sounds in each word.
Jasper - During our work about autumn, Jasper has been joining in with discussions and sharing his knowledge. He looked carefully at the autumnal objects and noticed the differences and shared what he could see and feel.
Lola - for fantastic work in Maths completing the pattern. Lola could talk about how she had made her pattern and confidently continued it. She recognised when there was mistakes in patterns and could make suggestions to show how we could correct it. Well done Lola.
Flynn - for super work all week in phonics. Flynn has been looking carefully at the sounds and has been trying hard to blend them into words. He has been joining in on the carpet with lots of enthusiasm. Well Done Flynn.
Leo - for making fantastic contributions all week on the carpet. This week we can see that Leo has been thinking carefully about the questions and has been putting his hand up to share his answer. He has impressed us in topic, phonics and maths. Well done Leo!
Nadia - for fantastic work in gymnastics. Nadia showed she was able to carefully balance across the bench moving both forwards and backwards. She then showed us how to jump off the bench and land safely. Well Done Nadia.
Aza - For fantastic work in maths sorting the objects in different ways. Aza was able to sort the objects by colour, size and shape. When a friend joined him Aza helped them to sort their objects correctly too.
Lilly - This week we have been learning about feeling using the story Owl Babies. Lilly was able to confidently talk about different feelings and when she might feel these different feelings. Lilly made some great faces in the mirror to show how she might look depending on how she is feeling.
Imogen – for the great contributions on the carpet, especially in Phonics. Imogen always puts up her hands and is ready to have a go.
Colin – for great work in maths. We have been finding objects that will match and sharing why they will match. Colin did a super job explaining which descriptions were the same.
