Developing Clay Skills
Finding out about Pitch in Science
After using Google Earth to find out more about some European countries, we focused on France using a fantastic map that showed some human features as well as physical features through pictures and words.
The End of the First Week
Wow! What a week! I am SO impressed by how well Holly Class have settled in and got into the new routines for our classroom. Gone are the rows from last year and in are our table groups which seem to be working very well. Well done to everyone for bringing their planners in every day and achieving Good to Be Green stickers throughout the day. Well done to the 12 children who were our Star Readers- can we have even more next week?
Music with Justyna will start this Thursday as will RE with Mrs Nicholls and Art with Miss Parker. On Friday, Mr Sharman will be taking the class for the first football session. There is so much to look forward to!
As basketball is quickly becoming a playtime favourite, we had a session looking at improving our bouncing control techniques and how to push up to reach the basket for a goal.
Art through Music
This afternoon, we listened to Beethoven and used a range of media to represent the sounds we heard.
The Year 4s did a great job teaching the Year 3s how to use the bows and arrows in our first archery session of the year!
We have been investigating sound today. Please ask us about it!
A Few Photos of our First Day
Yes, we really did hug some trees! Nature is good for our mental health so we spent the afternoon taking part in various activities outside.
Welcome to Holly Class!
It is the start of another year and it already looks like it will be a GREAT one!
Please remember to regularly check our page throughout the year to find out what we have been doing.
This term's topic is all about sound and we have some great activities lined up.
Fo parents reference, here is a copy of the letter I will be sending home on Monday along with a copy of the KS1 Common Exception Words that children should know how to read and spell by the end of Year 2. We will be assessing children this week to ensure they can. If not, your help at home to practise these words will greatly support your child. There is also a copy of the Year 3/4 spelling list that children need to be able to read/spell by the time they leave Holly Class.
