Behind the stable door
Dear Parents and Carers
As I am sure you are aware, Key Stage One have been working hard on rehearsals for their Christmas Nativity: ‘Behind the Stable Door!’
Performances will be taking place on Monday 6th December and Tuesday 7th December. Your child is one of the Narrators.
Please could you send them in to school with:
Brown, beige or black t-shirt, Black leggings/joggers, headdress (tea towel and rope).
Please can these items be named and in a named bag by Monday 29th November at the latest!
The Key Stage One Team.
We have been learning all about Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes and fireworks. We have also been learning about our 5 senses. We combined all this with our art skills to create firework poems backed onto firework art!
Black History Month
To celebrate Black History Month this October, we have been learning about Marcus Rashford and why he is inspirational. Many of the children knew all about his career as a Manchester United and England footballer but we discussed his other successes. We learnt about how he fought for all children across the country to received food in the tough times caused by the pandemic. We spoke about how he is still fighting for this cause meeting with the most powerful people in our country.
“It isn’t where you are from; it is where you are going that counts”
How do we remember the past?
This term, we have been trying to answer the question “How do we remember the past?” We learnt about different historical sources such as newspapers, photos, pictures, books and diaries. We created memory boxes and filled them with pictures and drawings of ourselves, letters to future us and newspaper articles about what is going on in the world right now. We can add to these as we grow up!
This week we went on our autumn walk! We started by discussing the different seasons and the changes we have noticed in the weather. We then went on a walk around the school grounds and noticed that some trees are losing leaves. We spoke about how the leaves were changing colours and how lots of animals are preparing to go into hibernation and will sleep until spring.
We have been learning about Harvest Festival. We learnt about why we harvest food so it can be stored for winter; how some foods are harvested by hand and others by machines and a little bit about the harvest moon!
We made our own pumpkin patch to celebrate Harvest Festival and learnt a song about special vegetables!
Lost and Found
Once there was a class and one day they found a penguin at their door....
Class One found a penguin but they couldn't find his owner. So out of the kindness of their hearts, they took the penguin in and looked after him. They taught him to read, write, count and play football. He also joined them in assemblies and the sand pit. They created a book with pictures and writing so that the penguin's owner would know what he has been up to.
The Rainbow Fish
Our first literacy learning journey has been inspired by The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. We acted out a range of sections from the story to help us understand how the different characters might have been feeling. Below are some pictures of our drama skills!
We hope you had a lovely summer! Please see our class letter below.
