I can't quite believe our first week back has finished already! Everyone has come back recharged, happy and ready to learn! The children have launched straight into their new topic and seem to be really enjoying it. As I'm sure you know our new topic this half term is 'Carnival' and we have loved focusing on floats so far this week! We just can't believe how fantastic some of them are!
In math's the children have just started working on number bonds to 20, this is proving quite tricky but the children are proving their resilience!
We are really excited about our new project based homework and hope you will enjoy it too. The sheet can be found in the homework section of Orange 2's page.
Have a lovely weekend,

Another week done... can you believe it's nearly half term!?!
The children have been working really hard this week on our new story 'My Mum has X ray Vision' Mum could see all sorts with her X-ray eyes... I'm sure your children will tell you all about it!
In maths the children have been starting some early addition using a part whole model to help them. I'm amazed at how well these young little minds have already soaked up so much maths knowledge!! In English the children have been writing sentences to match pictures from the story and taking part in some role play!
This week we have done some circle time around the fantastic story 'We are all different, we are all friends'. The book looked a variety of different children and Orange 2 were able to come up with some great questions and showed a lot of respect for people who are different to us. In choosing time, the children did a variety of activities around this story.
Have a lovely (hopefully sunny) weekend!!

Happy Friday! It's been a great week this week filled with lots of excitement. Our new playground looks almost ready and we have enjoyed watching it's progress everyday.
No Pens Wednesday was an enjoyable (and surprisingly tricky) day! The children were baffled at the concept of us not being able to use a pencil at all!! English and Maths was a carousel of different 'hands on' activities to reach several learning objectives and the children really got stuck in to the variety of practical activities.
For the rest of the week in maths, the children have been learning about ordinal numbers. We started the week off with some competitions of who could build a tower of 10 cubes the quickest. We discussed and awarded rosettes from 1st to 5th place.
In English the children have been writing a letter to the Three Little Superpigs to say thank you for saving the people of Fairyland! They have all been really impressing me with their writing and readiness to have a go this week!
Have a great weekend :-)

How fast has this week gone?! The children have been working so hard and are really getting in to the swing of Year One now! I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the hard work you put in with the rainbow values homework! We had some really fantastic pieces and Mrs Bates was very impressed!
This week in English the children have been learning about a new story 'The Three Little Superpigs' the three little pigs with a twist! We will be continuing the story next week so i'm sure the children will tell you all about it. I've been really impressed this week with how the children have all had a fantastic try at writing simple sentences to describe the wolf, some even using conjunctions!
In maths this week the children have been working more on place value and number by using the symbols <, > and = to compare numbers and quantities of objects.
In the afternoons, the children have enjoyed the sunshine whilst practicing their throwing and catching skills in lots of different ways. The children have also been talking about different food groups and creating a eat well plate. In choosing time, some children chose to carefully observe, draw and take photos of conkers and their shells.
Have a great weekend :-)

Well we've had a busy week this week and I think we are all ready for a relaxing weekend!
This week the children have been learning about the story Zippo the Super Hippo and his pretend super powers.
Taking inspiration from the story the children have been writing sentences to say what makes them super!
In maths, the children have been working hard on one more and one less in lots and lots of different ways!
Spellings this week:
Have a fantastic weekend- Miss Schofield :-)
