 This term we have been learning about Georgia O'Keeffe. We discovered that she loved to work with oil pastels. We had a go at mixing and blending oil pastels to decorate tree outlines. 

Simply Sharing

 This week, Class 1 have been learning about sharing  equally. We have worked in groups and individually to practising our sharing skills. We have been working really hard!

World Book Day

This was Class One's first World Book Day at Capel and we had a lot of fun! We had superheroes, the Cat in the Hat, Piglet, Goldilocks, monsters and dinosaurs, princesses, Star Wars and Meg and Mog characters,  penguins, squirrels, an underpants stealing pirate, Harry and his bucket full of dinosaurs, crocodiles, unicorns, ladybirds, white rabbits, the Big Bad Wolf, Zog and the flying doctor, Puss in Boots, a tiger who came for tea, Mr Bump and of course Harry Potter!

Measuring Mayhem

This week. we have been learning how to weight objects. We spoke about how balancing scales work and the heavier objects go down on the scales. We had a go at becoming human scales and weighed objects from the classroom. We had a lot of fun!

Pop Artist

This term in Art we have been focusing on self-portraits and shape. We have learnt about a range of artists such as Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Henri Matisse. This week we have been learning about Andy Warhol and had a go at turning ourselves into pop art artwork!

Musical Phenomenon

  This term we are learning to play the ocarina! We have talked about pitch and experimented to find the highest pitch and the lowest we could (which made some lovely sounds!). We also spoke about beat and how important it is to keep a beat. We have started to learn the first few lines of twinkle twinkle little star. Give us a few weeks!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

 This week we went on our winter walk! We discussed the different seasons and the changes we have noticed in the weather since our autumn walk. We then went on a walk around the school grounds and noticed that some have lost all their leaves and some haven't lost any. We spoke about how muddy, wet and cold it was and the difference between autumn and winter. Below are some pictures of our adventures. 

Marvellous Mathematicians

We have been learning how to add numbers to 20! We have been using tens frames and counters to support us and we are getting really good! Below are some pictures of us hard at work.

Firework Poems

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!

Autumn Walk

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. 

Harvest Festival

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!

Welcome back!

We hope you had a lovely summer! Please see our class letter below.
