Although last week was a short one, P.1A were as busy as ever! It all began on Monday morning when we discovered some sparkly footprints on the classroom floor and quickly worked out that we had been paid a visit by the Gruffalo! We used the story as a stimulus to learn about the key features of recipes, and we even mixed up our own batch of Gruffalo crumble that Mr Marshall (may or may not have) enjoyed for his dessert. We also wrote our own recipes for our Big Writing focus and had not one but two star writers who did an amazing job.
We learned the sounds ‘n’ (for Nobby and his net) and ‘p’ (for pirate) and continued with our learning in numeracy- recognition, counting, ordering, and sequencing. We enjoyed our first live Assembly on Thursday and told the whole school about our class responsibility- to work on our listening skills and be able to show the rest of the school what ‘good listening’ looks like. Well done to the brave children who were able to explain this to all the other classes, and congratulations of course to our Values Champion- who has been a great helper at tidy up time and is always showing care for her classroom.
We also had fun on Thursday with the Loose Parts Play and produced lots of wonderful and imaginative creations as we enjoyed the sunshine.
A final ‘well done’ to one of the class who was very proud of the beautiful shapes he created with the Octons this week! #proudtobepinkie
