Our week - 17/6/19
This week it was science week! The children have had the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people. On Monday, we met a man who spoke to us about engineering. Also, a nurse came in to talk to us about the importance of washing our hands to stop germs from spreading. As well as this, the children got to learn all about the journey our food makes through our digestive system.
On Thursday, we welcomed parents into the classroom to learn about the planets in our solar system. The parents and children then made papier mache planets covered in tissue paper and glitter!
**Next week is sports day and the race for life. Please make sure your child has all the correct PE in school on MONDAY.**
Our week - 14/6/19
Another busy week in Little Fish class! We had a 'Pentecost experience' workshop on Monday, the children took part in some lovely activities set up in the hall. 
In English we have been thinking about newspaper reports, we looked specifically at the Newspaper report of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon and then we started to write our own. 
In maths the Year 1s have been thinking about multiplication and division and the Year 2s have been solving problems. 
We have also started to think about what God is like in our R.E lessons, we had a P.E session with Jasmyn on Thursday and have started to make our moon buggies that we designed last week. The Year 1s completed their phonics screening checks this week too! Well done everyone!

Our Week - 6/6/19

In English we have been drafting, editing and publishing a letter.  We watched a short animated story and put ourselves in the place of the main character.  


In maths we have started our new scheme 'Power Maths'.  It has been really interesting to follow this new programme.  The children have been put into groups and we have been focusing on number work, including column addition, column subtraction and multiplication.


For prayer week we spent some time in the secret garden thinking about things we want to be thankful for and things we want to say sorry for.  We nailed our prayers to a cross, wrote thank you prayers on butterflies and wrote names of people on pebbles. 


Have a lovely long weekend!


Our Week - 3/5/19

In maths we have been thinking about information and how it is presented. We have made tally charts, pictograms and block graphs. We have also been practicing our numbers. We have been comparing and sharing them.

In English we have been learning the story of 'What Ever Next' by Julia Murphy.  We have learnt the story and we have begun to innovate it to create our own story.  Year 1 even found an alien space wreckage on the top playground!

The topic question for this term is "How would you survive in space?".  We have had great fun making (and sewing!) alien hand puppets and making space crafts to decorate our classroom.  We can't wait for next week when the space dome comes to visit.

Summer Term 2019
Welcome back to the Summer term in Little Fish. There have been a few changes in our classroom with Mrs Horwell now teaching us Monday - Wednesday and we have a new teaching assistant, Miss Maloney, working with us for the next few week. 
The start of a new term also means the start of a new topic! This term we will be focusing on 'Space' and how we would survive if we lived there! We will be making our own aliens who we will be supporting throughout the term and will be teaching each other about living on one another's planets! 
Summer term also brings exciting events, such as sports day and Year two graduation. Please keep an eye out in the newsletter for all of these important dates.
