Term 1 in Rachel and Anne-Marie’s class
We have had a busy start to the year! The children have all settled into the routines and expectations and are enjoying a lot of new learning.
Most children have been working very hard at learning all the single sounds while others have been working on developing some great narratives! In Maths we have been working on Number and have recently been doing lots of work with pattern. We were even able to find many different patterns in our school.
We have also started the program, ‘What’s the Buzz?’ Every Wednesday afternoon we read a story and do some related activities or games. Last week we learnt about cooperation. Our activity this week was to pass a hoop around the circle while holding hands the whole time. It was great for developing team-work.
One of the highlights of our week is Tuesday afternoons when we get to see our buddies. The Reception children (and the Year 6 children) look forward to seeing their buddies and reading some books together. The Year 6’s also helped the Reception students to create their timeline. They are now on display on our classroom windows.
