Yellow Class 2018/19

Welcome to Yellow class
 
 
Our class teacher is Miss Baker.
 
We will keep you up to date with all of the fun things that will be happening during our learning. There will be loads of photos and posts informing you of what we do in each area of the curriculum.
 
During the morning you can come and help your child with their morning job. Parents/carers can stay for 10 minutes until children need to be registered. Our morning jobs can include reading, writing and drawing. It is important that you read at home with your child as well as during morning jobs. Remember to write in their reading journal too.
 
This term our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday. You need to make sure your child has their kit with them so they can participate. If your child has their ears pierced it is advised that they come without them in on these days.
 
Our show and tell day is on a Friday. If your child has something exciting to show, this is the only day of the week they get to talk about their item. If this item is valuable I would advise leaving it at home. If your child has got a special achievement then please let me know early in the week. This is so they can receive a special mention in star assembly.
 
Star assemblies are a chance for us to come together to celebrate our achievements throughout the week. If your child receives a star letter on a Thursday afternoon, you are invited to come along and celebrate with us. The star assembly starts at 1:10pm.
 
School Council
 
We did a vote to decide who we thought would be suited in being a school councillor. These children were able to show that they suited the job and impressed us with what they had to offer.
 
Our school councillors are Aiden and Maci-Belle.
Autumn Term
 
This term our topic is Magical Lands. All our work for this Autumn term will be based around everything magical. We link all of our work to Magical Lands, which means our learning is full of excitement.
 
For our launch day we went searching for magical creatures in the forest. Here we were able to explore different magical creatures and people that lived there.
English
 
In English we have done a variety of learning such as story writing, poetry and instruction writing, including bossy verbs and time connectives. Children have produced a range of high quality work, showing their passion for learning.
 
We have been busy making Christmas decorations, following instructions and creating our own instructions. We have gained many skills and have learnt about the importance of instructions. 
Maths
 
In maths we have been learning about number bonds, place value, adding and subtracting. We have done a number of practical lessons where we have used various pieces of equipment to aid us in our learning.
 
Every Friday we do Active maths. 
Topic
 
Topic includes Geography, History, Art, Design Technology, Science, Computing, Music and P.E. Every afternoon we do topic and each afternoon is different. 
 
Science
As part of science we have explored a range of materials, identifying them and sorting them into the correct group. This was to help us investigate what materials were most durable for each of the three little pigs' houses. We tested these materials and felt how strong they would be, making sure the pigs got the best quality house. 
 
P.E.
This term we have had the opportunity to be taught both wheelchair and regular basketball. We have been able to develop our co-ordination and core strength.
