Greys class 6th September
Date: 6th Sep 2019 @ 3:27pm
Welcome back to a new school year!
We have had a lovely and busy start to our new school year here in Greys class. We have been painting rainbows and flowers for our classroom displays. We read the story of Daniel and the Lions and thought about how we have been brave and added our Acts of courage to our Values display.
We discussed adjectives to describe good and bad fairytale characters and then chose one to draw and write a character description for. We shared our holiday news and wrote holiday recounts.
We had PE on Wednesday afternoon and practised different ways of throwing and decided which method we preferred.
On Thursday afternoon we began our new topic Where do, and did, the wheels on the bus go? In this topic we will be learning all about the countries and capital cities of the UK and different modes of transport from past and present. We read the story of The Town Mouse and the Country mouse and went on a walk to see what we could learn about the countryside, in order to compare it with a town or city.
In Maths we have been looking at place value and placing numbers in order and locating them on a number line or beaded line. The Year 2s were also doing this and adding 10 to 2 digit numbers.
We finished off the week with a visit to the opening of the new site, where we played an assortment of games on our new ground.
The class webpage has been updated, so please have a look when you have chance.
Thank you to those who attended the Reading and Phonics workshop this week, details of which will be uploaded onto the website in the near future.
Please let me know if you would like to help out on any school trips this year or if you have any ideas for trips/ visitors which would work well with particular topics.
Show and Tell is topic related, so this term it will be about the UK or transport.
Monday - Islay
Tuesday - Thea

Thank you for a fabulous first week back Greys class and enjoy your weekend.
