In our reading groups we have been using Bug Club and learning to show understanding of a text. We are working on recalling and summarising what we have read. We can predicate what will happen next and are learning to critically evaluate what we are reading giving reasons.
Melissa- In reading I am in vert and we are reading a really good book called Mobile Fear. It’s about a boy that is very good with electronics but what he doesn’t know is that the phone could bring him great danger…

In PE we have been learning football skills to help us play skillfully in games. Controlling the ball and dribbling are essential to play the game well. We play a game called corners and it helps you with controlling the ball and taking the ball off of other people in challenges. The whole class likes this game and we are having fun at the same time as learning. We also have to work together as sometimes two people come up from each team to play the game.
In our class we have doing lots of interesting learning since we last posted on the blog.
Last week was Maths week and we did lots of activities using our prior learning on tables and problem solving. With the tables activities we were able to multiply using a variety of methods and strategies. In the K’Nex challenge we had to work together, reason logically and guess check and improve to create a structure. Here are some examples of our work below.
We have been very busy developing our class charter in the last couple of weeks and getting to know each other better. It is lovely to see some new friendships forming and others continuing from last year. Here is a little flavour of our recent learning.
In maths we have been outside looking for 2d shapes in the playground and taking pictures of them. We used the pictures to sort the shapes into categories and p2 pupils labelled the shapes using skitch.
In number work p1 have been focusing on forming numbers 1-6 and representing them in different ways. P2 have been learning about tens and ones and using this knowledge to help order numbers from the smallest to the biggest.
In spelling and phonics p1s have been learning their sounds and listening for them in words. P2 have been focusing on words with the ai and oa sound.
During discovery time in the nursery we have been using our motor skills to take apart a laptop and exploring the parts we have found. We have been using problem solving skills to make obstacle courses with loose parts outside (and inside). We have used non-fiction books to look at different people who help us and have created a giant police man, fire girl and fire engine to display in our classroom. In health we have been exploring similarities and differences and have used small loose parts to create a self portrait.
