Year 1/2 - Paddington Station
Welcome to term 1 of 2020-2021 and to Y1/Y2 J or Paddington Station class!
Ash Class have had a busy start to the term, everyone has been working hard in their lessons. We have started to look at the story of The Snail and The Whale. If you have time there is a lovely animation of the story on the BBC website which you could share with your child.
We have also explored different fruits which might be delicious topping for pancakes!
Sculpting using clay
This week Ash Class created their own sculptures using clay, we have had a look at some well know sculptures and looked at the different materials that were used to create them. We then designed our own sculptures and formed our creations! Unfortunately they have not dried yet but they will be sent home towards the end of next week for all to see.
Welcome back Ash Class!
We hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and got some fantastic presents! All the children have come back and have settled back in really well. They have produces some great work this week and we are looking forward to seeing some more from them over the coming weeks.
Great work with addition this week. We can use the 10s frame, writing matching equations in the part, whole model as well as writing the number sentence!
It's starting to look a lot like Christmas! This afternoon, we spend a little time making our Christmas tree decorations. We can't wait to see them hanging on the tree.
This week in our phonics sessions we will be looking at the alternative spellings for /oa/ and tricky words who and again. We will have a spelling test on Friday. Our spellings are snow, toad, who and again.
As a reward for all the children's hard work this term, they can bring in a small toy on Wednesday 23rd October. This will be a great way to end the term with discussions about their toy and a great opportunity to develop our social skills; in particular - sharing.
