I am aware that different types of evidence can help me to find out about the world around me. SOC 0-15a
By exploring my local community, I have discovered the different roles people play and how they can help. SOC 0-16a
This week we introduced our new IDL topic, People Who Help Us.
We discussed the role of a police officer in our community, specifically looking at the different equipment they need to help keep us and themselves safe. The children coloured and labelled a diagram of a police officer in our community. Furthermore, we looked specifically at the different equipment the police have and how they use it. We painted and coloured our very own Police hats and Police badge. These are on display within the classroom to display some of the children’s best work.
I can collect objects and ask questions to gather information, organising and displaying my findings in different ways. MNU 0-20a
During maths this week we have been learning more about Data Handling. The children have been engaging in activities that allow them to collect information about the different children in the class and record this information using tally marks. Moreover, they used this information to create different pictograms and bar graphs. These have been on display on our Maths wall for the children to celebrate their work and to help consolidate their knowledge. We continue to challenge the children using Active Maths time each day to further their skills and their concept of Addition and Subtraction. The children have gradually moved on to more difficult sums with answers reaching numbers 0-20. This is excellent and the children are progressing well engaging in these different activities.
I enjoy exploring and playing with the patterns and sounds of language, and can use what I learn.LIT 0-01a / LIT 0-11a / LIT 0-20a
I explore sounds, letters and words, discovering how they work together, and I can use what I learn to help me as I read or write. ENG 0-12a / LIT 0-13a / LIT 0-21a
Within real and imaginary situations, I share experiences and feelings, ideas and information in a way that communicates my message. LIT 0-26a
During Literacy the children have been introduced to two new books and engaging in activities that check their understanding of the text. They have worked hard as always and have found these both challenging and enjoyable. We have introduced our new phoneme ‘ck’ and explored the different words that contain the phoneme. The children enjoy these activities and contribute well to class discussions about the new phoneme. Also our new common words ‘make, made and like’ were learnt and the children have been working hard to create sentences using the phoneme and common words. During story writing the children have been role playing as a police officer. We have been investigating the residence of the three bears after a break in from Goldilocks! The children enjoyed writing the police report and managed to create most of their own sentences using a word mat. Well done boys and girls!
I am aware of my own and others’ needs and feelings especially when taking turns and sharing resources. I recognise the need to follow rules. HWB 0-23a
The children have continued to learn about the different events they will be participating in at Sports Day. They have been learning how to stay in their line order and how the different teams will move between each activity. The children were introduced to different games this week also. On Tuesday and Wednesday the children have learnt various different games. Including crab race; throwing bean bag into the hoop; throwing hoop onto cone; balancing shuttle cock on head and races using different forms of movement. The boys and girls have worked very hard and have really enjoyed these activities especially out in the lovely weather. Fingers crossed we manage to get this weather on the actual day!
As I explore Christian stories, images, music and poems, I am becoming familiar with some beliefs Christian people have about God and Jesus. RME0-01a
As I play and learn, I am developing my understanding of what is fair and unfair and the importance of caring for, sharing and cooperating with others. RME 0-02a
The children have been introduced to story of Moses during RME. They have enjoyed learning about baby Moses and have completed a cut and stick activity to consolidate their knowledge of the beginning of the story. The resources available have been excellent and the children enjoy using the online videos and slideshows to learn.
