Class 1 2019

Celebrations!
 
PHONICS:
 
We have been working very hard on our phonics and we have completed Phase 2! We are working hard to use all of the sounds we know in our reading and writing, recognising our sounds everywhere we go, segmenting and blending to help our reading and writing and even starting to write sentences.
 
Phase 2:
 
s - a - t - p - i - n - m - d - g - o - c - k - ck - e - u - r - h - b - f - ff - l - ll - ss
 
Tricky words:

Amazing Me!
We are unique! We learnt a new song and performed it to the school in assembly so everyone knew to be nice to us ☺️. We learnt that we are all different and all amazing. 
Woodland Walk:
 
What a fabulous walk we had, with the sun shining. We are so lucky to have such an amazing resource at our fingertips. we explored using all of our senses and managed to collects lots of natural materials for artwork back in the classroom.
 
Thank you to all our volunteers who make our walks possible.
 Class 1 have been enjoying the sun in our PE lessons over the last few weeks. We have been practising our balancing and getting used to using the different equipment!
In music we have been exploring the different sounds we can make with our bodies and copying patterns. This week we got out the musical instruments and made soft and loud sounds and made up our own songs. Some children then made their own musical instruments outside!
On a Thursday afternoon we have been learning all about the technology around us and how we can make things work from taking a special picture on the iPad to getting a CD player to work properly. We have also talked about all the technology that helps us at home.
Our First days in Class 1;
Wow! what an exciting few days we have had. Everyone came into school on Thursday looking super smart in their new uniforms and full of fabulous stories of their summer holidays and all the things they love to do. We loved looking at the postcards that were sent into school. We have all made new friends and enjoyed exploring all areas of the classroom inside and out. We have coped so well with new routines and expectations and have real impressed all of the teachers in school with how settled we are. Our favourite things have been: 'stories', 'playing in the sand', 'painting', 'singing', 'role play areas', 'building' and 'dressing up'.
 
We are looking forward to all of the exciting experiences we will have in the term ahead.
