This term, we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We started our learning in literacy today. We have found out about some of the events and what happened during the Great Fire of London. We read some events and put them in order.
our timelines look amazing!
After waiting a long 21 days we can finally welcome 'Steve' the chick into the Team AF family. Steve is a little unsteady on his feet but he seems really happy. Steve is very excited to meet Team AF Monday morning!
After 21 day waiting we have finally seen a change in the egg. This morning we started to hear a little tweeting. At play time one of the eggs started to crack open.
We were all very excited to watch the movement of the little chick as it starts to hatch.
We have had a class vote and we have decided when the chick hatches we will call it Steve
Each week in Team AF we do 'Dough Disco'. This helps us to strengthen our hands for better pencil control. It also gives us the opportunity to practice our singing and cover some of the music Curriculum. One of our songs today was 'True Colours'. I'm sure you will agree that our singing is absolutely beautiful!
As part of our plants and animals topic we will be learning about different types of animals. This week we have been learning about reptiles. We had a visit from Raymond the Bearded Dragon to help us find out a little more.
We all got to hold Raymond. She was very cold. This is because reptiles are cold blooded. We also felt her dry, rough, scaly skin.
We found out about what Raymond eats. Raymond is an omnivore. This means that she eats both plants and animals. One of Raymond's favourite foods is live locusts. Some of us were brave enough to feed her!
As part of our literacy learning this week we have been looking at the book 'The Tiger who came to Tea'. We are really looking forwards to writing our own alternative version of the story on Friday. Today we have retold the story in groups. Here is what we came up with.
We have had a very exciting afternoon today! To help support our topic of plants and animals we have had a visit from 'Bell' the lamb. We were all very excited, she is only 4 weeks old!
We all met 'Bell' and had the opportunity to stroke her.
Unfortunately, Bell's mum won't feed her. We helped out during her visit to Park Street
This afternoon we received a letter! We knew it was a letter because of all the features it had which we have learnt in literacy this week! The letter was from Jack Spriggins (from Jack and the Beanstalk). He had some left over magic beans! We have followed the instructions sent us and they are now growing on the window of the class. We are looking forwards to see how they change. We are going to keep a daily record to see what changes happen and how soon. Hopefully they will grow so we can plant them at home. Who knows, we may be able to explore the giants castle in our own garden.
We had lots of fun planting the beans.
We were really happy with our beans in a bag.
This week we are learning how to write numbers in word form. We have had lots of fun learning this today! Today we had to choose a number card and write that number as a word, in shaving foam.
This afternoon 12 of our children went to visit Barnsley College on a sporting trip. It sounds like they have had an amazing time!
Whilst they were on their trip the remaining children had a game of badminton. Before starting we practiced using a barminton racket and a shuttlecock, something most of us hadn't done before. We did an amazing job and really enjoyed having a game!
Hello, I'm Mr Fidment. I have only recently joined the Park Street team in September and I am the class teacher in Team AF (Year 1). I have had an amazing time starting my first year of teaching and cannot wait for the year to continue! Although I enjoy teaching all areas of the curriculum, I have a passion for teaching phonics. When I am not in school I enjoy spending time with my friends and looking after a couple of pets I have.
