Welcome to Bumblebee Class!
Welcome to Bumblebee Class, Year One! We hope you have had a fantastic summer and are excited for the year ahead.
Our teacher in Bumblebee Class is Miss Carter and our teaching assistant is Miss Bartlett.
Please try, if possible, to read with an adult at home five times a week. Reading books can be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Also, please remember to bring both your reading books and your PE kits into school every day as we are very busy bees!
This week we have been learning the story of 'Rosie's Walk'. As a class we created a story map with our own actions to help us remember all of the places Rosie visited on her farm. We managed to retell parts of the story by writing full sentences with both capital letters and full stops and drew some pictures as illustrations. In groups, we also managed to sequence the events of the story in the correct order. Over the week, we have also had some fun with drama activities by creating fox and hen masks to hot seat the main characters using questions the children created themselves. We all seem to be really enjoying learning about 'Rosie's Walk' and will carry on learning more about Rosie the hen and her farm including taking part in special farming surprises next week!
Well done Bumblebees.
In maths this week we have been writing our numbers from 0 - 10 in numerals and in words. We have also been practising ordering our numbers from smallest to largest and managed to do this all by ourselves!
We have had a really fun second week in Bumblebee Class. On Wednesday, we had a 'Roald Dahl day' where we talked about some of our favourite Roald Dahl books and films, before reading the story of the 'Enormous Crocodile' together. The children loved using their knowledge of numbers to 20 to cut out and make different amounts of crocodile teeth using play-doh. We also used lots of different shapes to create our very own crocodiles. The children also worked really well independently to complete different 'Willy Wonka' sums and built towers of 'sweets', using number cards to 20 and unifix cubes. We have also started to have our very own 'dough-disco' after lunch by using play-doh to help us improve our fine motor skills and have really impressed Miss Carter and Miss Bartlett with how quickly we have learnt the moves!
Have a super weekend Bumblebees!
For the children that would like a little bit of extra practise at home, here is the link to our Wake and Shake song that we will be doing in class over the next couple of weeks.
Have fun dancing!
We have had a super first week getting to know each other and we have all settled into Year One really well. Over the week, we have been busy impressing Miss Carter and Miss Bartlett with just how good we are at counting forwards and backwards to and from ten (and even 20!) and writing sentences. We have also enjoyed sharing our favourite stories with one another and have also made some bookmarks to take home with us to use in our reading books.
Take a look at the photos above to see some of the activities that we have been up to this week.
A huge well done Bumblebees, have a great weekend!
