Autumn 2

Autumn 2 is turning into a very busy half term!  

During our Literacy and Understanding the World sessions we are  learning about different celebrations such as Diwali, Eid, Bonfire night, Hanukah and Christmas! We are thinking about the things that are similar in these celebrations, such as giving gifts and eating special food. We have also been thinking about the things that are different about them. For instance, we have found out that people go to different places of worship for each celebration, such as a mosque for Eid or a temple for Diwali. 

In Literacy we have been applying all our phonics and handwriting skills to write lists of things we may need for different celebrations, such as birthday parties. We are all improving at segmenting words to hear all the sounds so we can write them down using our cursive letter formation!

During our maths sessions we have been exploring 3D solid shapes, such as cylinders and cones. We have been using them to make some firework models, as we have found out that fireworks are used as part of may different celebrations. However, we understand that fireworks can also be dangerous, so we have spent some time finding out about how to stay safe when we are near them!

We have also been very creative by using clay to make some diya lamps, which are used at Diwali. When they are fully dried out we will paint them and add a candle in the middle, but we will obviously wait until we are with our adults at home to light them safely!

Soon we will be finding out more about the celebration of Christmas. We are sad that we will not be able to hold our usual concerts in school this year, but we have started to practise some songs which we are going to perform in school and video so that our families will be able to watch us at home! Very exciting!

E.g.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blue, green, blue, green…? What colour would come next?

Autumn 1 2020

Welcome to Class 7!

A very big welcome to Sitwell Infant School and Class 7 - at last!!! It has been lovely to be back in our classroom after a few very strange months and to finally meet everyone! We have had to make some changes so that we can stay safe in our class bubbles, but the staff in Class 7 have been extremely proud of how everyone has come into school during our transition days - well done!smileyyes

 

We have been very busy this week getting to know each other and learn everyone's names - it has been very exciting making new friends! Going forward we are going to be learning to follow all our new rules and routines with the six Sitwell Superheroes. You can see our six superhero owls in our classroom - they sit all around our behaviour rocket and they are helping us to develop our lifeskills, such as being kind, honest and always being determined and working hard!

 

This term our new topic is called Proud To Be Me! We are looking forward to finding out about each other, talking about our families and learning about the place we live, recognising that some things may be similar while others may be different. We will think about what we look like and we are going to be practising our cutting skills to make some Puzzle Portrait jigsaws - look out for them on the walls around our classroom to see if you can work out who is who!

 

We are also going to develop our reading skills and learn about all the sounds letters make and how we can blend them together to read words. Also we are learning how to talk about stories and describe the characters and the sequence of events. You will soon receive your new Reading Diaries with your reading targets and each week you will take home a reading book to share with your families - but you must remember to bring it back into school the following week so we can change it for a different one!  If you read at least 3 times in a week and fill in your reading diaries, Mrs Hague will give you a stamp when she collects your diaries in every Monday. When you have collected 6 stamps you will be able to choose a prize from Mrs Pearts special prize box!

 

In school we will also develop our writing skills and are going to be learning how to form cursive letters! This may be a bit tricky at first, but we know that if we keep practising like The Determinator (who never gives up!) we will get better and better!

 

During our Maths sessions we are going to be singing lots of number songs to practise our counting skills, both forwards and backwards because it is really important that we can do both! We will also be learning to recognise our numbers 0-20 and match them to the correct amounts of objects.

 

We are looking forward to having our first PE session with Live Learn Sports which is always great fun and helps to keep us fit and healthy too! We will be learning to be independent in getting changed for PE, learning how to dress ourselves and look after our belongings - this is something we can practise at home if we find it a bit tricky. Our indoor PE day in Class 7 is on Thursday so we must remember to have our PE kits in school on this day, and also to remove our earrings if we wear them.

 

So as you can see, we are going to be very busy in Class 7 - exciting times ahead!
