Class One LSA
Class One had a special visit from Anne from the RNLI. She told us all about the RNLI and what they do, whilst also explaining what could happen if the weather suddenly changes at sea. Some of the children were able to try on some costumes too. The children learnt about the different flags that are used to keep people safe at the beach. We would like to say a huge thank you to Anne for coming into school to tell us all about what we can do to stay safe when the weather changes at sea.
Great North Air Ambulance Assembly
We had a visit from the Great North Air Ambulance and Miles the bear for a special assembly. We learnt all about what the Great North Air Ambulance does and some of us were able to try on a genuine Great North Air Ambulance flying suit. The children even had a photograph taken with Miles the bear.
Class One enjoyed a lovely morning at Forest School with Mrs Gray. We would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Gray for a wonderful day and another big thank you to Isaac’s mum for helping us too. We had a fantastic time playing in the woods, decorating Pudsey Bear with different objects from the forest, building dens, creating our own Pudsey Bear bandanas, making houses for insects, eating special Pudsey Bear pancakes and even eating our hot school lunches from special trays in the forest.
All about Plants
We have been learning all about the structure of plants during science. We decided that we would plant some bulbs to discover the different things that plants need to stay healthy and to grow. We were able to write our own ‘how to grow a bulb’ instructions too. The children really enjoyed this task and they have noticed that the bulbs have started to grow.
Problems for the Plotters
We have been learning all about the Gunpowder Plot in history. Class One have been thinking about who the Gunpowder plotters were, whilst also thinking about how and why the Gunpowder plotters wanted to carry out their plan. We have learnt about how the Gunpowder Plot started and some of the problems the plotters encountered. The children were able to act out what the plotters may have talked about when they were planning the Gunpowder Plot and what they would have discussed after Lord Monteagle received a letter revealing their plan.
Dividing using Groups
We have been learning all about division. We have enjoyed using practical objects to solve division number sentences by working out how many countable objects we need and how many groups we will need to divide our total number of objects into. We then counted how many objects were in each group to solve our division number sentences.
Open the Book
As part of our Open the Book assemblies we have been learning about different stories from the bible. Some of the children from Class One were able to volunteer to be Noah’s three sons and their wives when learning about the story of Noah. The children were very proud of themselves and were excellent actors and actresses.
Multiplication and Repeated Addition with Arrays
We have been learning all multiplication and repeated addition. We have enjoyed using practical objects to make our own arrays to show our working out to solve different multiplication number sentences.
Our Autumn Walk
Our topic this term is changes. As part of our science work this term we have been looking at the four seasons; spring, summer, autumn and winter. We have been learning about the different weathers associated with the seasons and how the day length varies during each season.
During science this week the children went on an autumn walk to investigate the ways in which the world changes throughout the different seasons. The children found and collected lots of brown leaves from the trees, alongside apples which were ready to harvest. They thoroughly enjoyed this! We are hoping to use our apples to do some cooking next week.
