SUN, SEA AND SAND
Welcome to Class 1, I hope you have all had a lovely summer holiday. It has been a very busy summer at Sitwell, there has been lots of changes around school including a lovely new outdoor classroom. I can't wait for us to use it this half term!
This term we are starting a new exciting topic called " Sun, Sea and Sand", we will be off to Cleethorpes in week 3, lets hope the sun comes out to play!!! We will be continuing our learning in Science about materials, we will be exploring and investigating materials and planning some fun experiments. In geography as well as visiting the seaside we will be widening our knowledge about physical and human features and comparing Cleethorpes with Rotherham.
What a busy first two weeks it has been in Class 1, the weeks seem to be whizzing by. Class 1 wrote some beautiful postcards all about their summer holidays, I am very impressed with the lovely handwriting. In maths we have been recapping and learning all about place value and using this knowledge to order numbers. We have been playing on a coconut ordering game, if you want to have a go at home please see the link below.
On Wednesday we went on a lovely seasonal walk to see if we could spot any signs of autumn, it definitely wasn't that difficult, even though summer is officially not over till September 23rd. We saw some beautiful autumnal colours, we spotted some fungus and Rowan even found an acorn though we have no oak tree in our school grounds!!!!! Have a look at some of the photos we took.
Now fingers crossed for Friday when the whole of Key Stage 1 are off for an exciting visit to Cleethorpes, we have checked the weather and the sun is shining, keep an eye out for the photos.
