All about me!
After a very busy Autumn term we have now moved into our first Spring term. Our new topic is "All about me!."
We have really enjoyed looking at photos of some of our children as babies and trying to guess who they are. Thank you to all the families that have let us share these. The children have discussed how they have changed already and the types of things they can do now that they couldn't when they were younger. We are also going to think about the future and what they might do when they are older.
We are learning about our senses and how they help us to explore the world around us.
We linked the sense of listening to the story We're going on a Bear Hunt. The children really enjoyed acting out this story and they are very good at retelling the story. Get them to demonstrate!
As artists we have been looking at how to draw self-portraits. We looked carefully at ourselves using mirrors and then had a go at doing a pencil drawing remembering to include lots of details.
Class 6 has some great portrait artists! See what you think.
Next is to try to complete our portraits in paint. Watch this space!
It's a celebration
During this term we have been learning about different celebrations. Lots of children in our class celebrate different festivals and special times in their homes.
We have learnt about Bonfire night, birthdays, Diwali, Hanukah and Christmas. We talked about the different things that are used to celebrate these.
Class 6 found out that most celebrations involved getting together with families, some sort of food and that fireworks are often used as well.
We worked together with Class 7 and 8 to produce our Christmas performance of Whoops-A-Daisy Angel. We had a great time learning the songs and performing for our families.
On the last day of term we had a very special visitor!
Once upon a Rhyme
Welcome to Class 6's news page. We have really enjoyed meeting all of our new children and parents over the past few weeks. It's lovely to see how keen the children are to learn and make new friends and they are all really settling in well.
Our topic over this half term is Once Upon a Rhyme, where we will complete our learning through lots of different nursery rhymes. We will be recapping on old favourite rhymes such as Humpty Dumpty and also learning some less familiar ones. We have already completed science experiment inspired by Humpty Dumpty!
In our phonics work we are starting to work our way through the single letter graphemes and learning the associated rhymes to help us to remember them. We will also be learning to form each letter at the same time.
Maths this term is a lot of different counting songs and rhymes to help us with counting both forwards and backwards. We are also looking at the various ways of representing each number using the digit, word, fingers, dice, tallies and numicon and then also including coins.
We have already completed 2 PE sessions with Mr Hiner and we have had a great time. Please can you make sure your child is not wearing earrings on these days (Tuesdays).
Towards the end of the term we will be having our Nursery Rhyme party so watch out for further details.
