Old Bear Tales

We have been reading the Old Bear stories and then retelling them in our Big Write. The children have loved getting to know the characters - crazy Little Bear, kind Branwell Brown and friendly Jolly Tall. Now we have started a short Mantle of the Expert as we have become party planners, helping Old Bear plan a birthday party for Little Bear. Our expert teams have been busy writing letters and invitations, alongside designing cakes and picking out balloon colours! All very exciting!

Our Class Assembly

The children presented their class assembly on our topic to the school and then to all the parents and carers. They all did very well using a toy shop setting to demonstrate that they are Maths Wizards with recognising coins. They also shared their riddles and Wanted posters for lost toys using some super adjectives. They all recited a poem and joined in with a song at the end. Well done Hedgehog Class - you were all amazing!  



Toy Story Fun!

We have been using visual literacy this term to inspire our writing. The children have been loving watching clips from Toy Story and describing the characters using adjectives. The children excelled themselves retelling a clip of the film as story with a beginning, middle and end. In Maths we have continued to add and subtract in many different ways. In our topic work we have been looking at toys from the past and comparing them to toys now and thinking about what materials they are made from. 

Welcome to 2019!

A warm welcome back to all the children after Christmas! We hope you all enjoyed the break. Hedgehog class are all very excited to be starting our new topic Toys. This week the children brought in their toys so we could set up our Toy Shop. The children are enjoying writing riddles about their toys and exploring coins using the Toy Shop. 





Welcome to Year 1.

It was so lovely to see the children returning after the holiday full of enthusiasm and ready to learn.

This half term our topic is, ‘Percy’s in a Pickle.’ We started our topic by finding Percy on the floor having fallen in a hole and hurt his leg. We asked him what was wrong and how could help him. Percy was worried he would not be able to do his jobs in the park.

We decided we would help him and be Junior Park Keepers.  Year 1 now need to decide how we can support poor Percy.
