The children have started a new topic this week based on the book ‘Pumpkin Soup!’ One of the characters ‘Duck’ sent Year One a very special letter asking for their help! The children were asked to research and write a list of ingredients so Duck could make Pumpkin Soup. The children used their FRED fingers to spell the ingredients and showed neat presentation in their books! Some of their work is on display in our classroom! The children have also learnt about types of animal group including mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, birds and insects.

In maths the children have practiced their addition skills and how to work out the value of a two digit number. Although this was tricky… the children persevered and tried their very best and learnt a new mathematical skill.

In RWI children have practiced their set 2 and set 3 sounds this week and learning to blend the sounds when reading them.

The children now also have their very own Dojo! Each child has a virtual monster which they can gain points for and points mean prizes! Children can earn points for many things including respecting others, ensuring they are on task and persistence. As a class we are currently on a 128 Dojo points. Let’s keep it up Year One and try to reach 200 points!

The children had a busy week this week!

On Friday we visited Conisbrough Castle and learnt lots of new and exciting information! The children learnt about the different types of jobs people had in the castle. They also learnt about the different types of job roles including the cooks, servants and guards. As the children entered the castle on each floor they were involved in activities and found information about the Lord and Lady that lived there. (Lord Hamlin and Lady Isabelle). Some very brave children even climbed the stairs all the way to the top of tower! The children were tired after the trip!

Some children and parents attended our Halloween and Craft day on Wednesday. Children made lots of exciting Halloween crafts including Mr and Mrs Frankenstein figures, skeleton cards, Halloween wreaths and some very scary looking mummies.

Miss Chapman would like to thank the parents who attended it always fabulous to see the children getting creative with their adults!
