Newton Farm Primary School and Nursery Class

November Progress in Room 14


We spent this afternoon sorting real food from Miss Anderson’s shopping bag into the different food groups. We then drew our favourite food into the correct section. The Eatwell plate helped us. We will be learning more in class about this and thinking about how important it is to get enough sleep.

During Social Studies lessons we have been learning lots about the 1960s. We have created a large class timeline showing major events throughout the decade. We then had a go at working with a partner to create our own.

In Literacy, we are learning how to spell words using the 5 finger strategy for the different representations of ie: y as in sky, fly, shy, ie as in lie, pie, die, tries, fries and i-e as in dive, five, hide, wide.

In Mathematics we have moved onto learning to Tell the Time. There are some super games on Topmarks to help learning how to tell the time using an analogue and digital displays.

During Expressive Arts we learned about British artist Andy Goldsworthy. He creates pictures and sculptures using nature and calls his artwork, ‘Land Art’. We went an autumn walk around the school grounds. We gathered stones, twigs and leaves then created our own masterpieces. They are really effective.

Looking forward to talking to parent/carers on Thursday evening.

Miss Kennedy
