Year 1 - Lime Class

Monday 1st June.

Hello Lime Class!  I can't believe it's June already! I hope you have all had a lovely half term and enjoyed the wonderful sunny weather! Term 6 is going to be a little bit different for each of us.  Some of us are going to be back in school while the rest of us will be continuing our learning at home.  Wherever we are doing our learning, I am going to try and keep it very similar for all of us!  Today we will be starting our new topic 'Bubbles' and I know you are all going to enjoy this! I would really like you to have a go at the writing task this week.  Those of you in school we will be doing this in class.  I have attached a sheet that will help you to write a good story and also a story mountain to plan your story before you write it.  

Reading - Continue to read every day on Bug Club and answer the questions about what you have read.  Even if you are in school, we won't be sending reading books home so you can use Bug Club each day too.

Writing - Complete the weekly writing task.  Practise your handwriting and spelling the Year 1 words.  Don't forget to have a go at the Spelling and Grammar activities on Bug Club.

Maths -I will still be setting daily Mathletics tasks and sometimes the Power Maths sheets.  You can try Times Tables Rockstars and practise the 30 or 60 club.  

There are also the BBC Bitesize Daily lessons that you could use at home too. 

I am looking forward to seeing some of you back in school!  

Friday 22nd May.

We have made it to the end of Term 5! We are so proud of how hard you have all worked this term and have loved seeing all your amazing learning! You should all be very proud of yourselves! 
Well done for being the best you can be especially during these strange times! 
Enjoy half term, stay safe and have fun!

Thursday 21st May.

Hello everyone! I hope you have all been able to enjoy the lovely sunshine over the last few days? We only have 2 more days of learning left for this term. 😮 
Remember to send me your robot designs and make sure that you are up to date with the tasks on Mathletics.

For today’s Mathletics activity, you will be using tens and ones to create different numbers. Look carefully at how many tens are in each number and how many ones.  You could count in tens to help you.  
Have a look at this page from BBC Bitesize as there is another activity to help you understand tens and ones and also a fun quiz at the end. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8sfr82/articles/zw4g2nb

 

keep going we are almost at half term! 

Wednesday 20th May.

Good morning Lime class!  I hope you have been enjoying the lovely weather we are having - it's so nice to see the sunshine again!  

I have been so impressed with the robot designs I have received already this week.  You have come up with some great ideas for the jobs your robots could do - rubbish collector, making food, tidying up and doing school work!  I could really do with these robots at the moment!  Have a look at our brilliant work below!

Today's Mathletics task is using your knowledge of tens and ones to count and make different numbers.  You can use your skill of counting in tens to help you work out the answers.  Have a go at the sheet below to practise partitioning numbers into tens and ones.  

Keep up the great learning!

20th May Maths - Tens and Ones

Tuesday 19th May - Maths - Counting Backwards

Monday 18th May.

Hello Lime Class!  I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  I can't believe this is the last week of Term 5!  You have all worked so hard this term so let's really see your lights shine in this final week!

This weeks learning:

Reading - Try and do a bit of reading every day.  This could be on Bug Club or on Oxford owl or a real book.  Remember the spelling and grammar games on Bug club too!

Topic - Have a look at the topic sheet for 'Home Sweet Home' and try some of the activities that you've not had a go at yet!  It's the final week to do some learning from there. 

Maths - This week on Mathletics we are starting a new topic on 'Place Value.'  The first activity today is counting up in ones from different numbers up to 100.  Have a practise of counting out loud to 100 first then have a go at writing the numbers.  Once you have done the task on mathletcis there is a sheet below that you may want to use so that you can write the numbers to complete the sequence.  Check that you are using correct number formation!  

You can also pracitse the 30 or 60 club sheets and TTRockstars.  

Writing - We have a different book from the 'Power of Reading' this week.  There are 5 steps like you had last week.  Three talking/discussion ones, one drawing and one writing.  Each step shouldn't take very long.  Below you will find a copy of the task and a design sheet which you may want to use for the final writing step.  

 

Remember to email me any of your learning or if you need any help or support limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

 

Have fun, stay safe and keep on being the best you can be!  smiley

Friday 15th May

Well done for working so hard this week Lime class. I have been so impressed with the writing you have done on our Power of Reading task, based on the book the Fox and the Star.  Some of you have written lovely letters to a friend or family member.  Have a look at some of the work we have done below.  You should be so proud of it! 
I am not setting you a maths task for today as we are going to start a new topic of place value next week. If you have any activities to complete on Mathletics then you can continue with those.  Try live Mathletics too so you can practise your mental recall of numbers.  You could have a go at Times Table Rockstars too! 
Have a lovely weekend.

Our brilliant letter writing - the Fox and the Star!

Thursday 14th May

Hello Lime class!  I have been so impressed with the learning that has been sent to me already this week - keep it up!

Your Maths task for today is continuing with describing positions but you will need to use the words top, middle, bottom, in between, up and down.  There are some really good questions in the speech bubbles that you may want to have a go at too.  You might want to use some of your toys and create your own sentences using the correct language.  

Power Maths Lessons on Position and Direction

Wednesday 13th May.

I hope you are all having a good week so far?  Well done to the 7 children who have had a go with the new Times Tables Rock Stars already.  If you've not had a chance to check it out yet please try and have a go as I know lots of you are enjoying it!  It's the same log in as the one you use for Mathletics!  

 

Maths:

Your maths learning for today is looking at describing positions.  You will need to use all the language that you have learnt over the last couple of weeks to help you with today's task.  You will be using the words left, right, quarter turn, half turn, three quarter turn and a whole turn. Again you may want to have a go at doing it practically and walking through each route.  

 

 

Mrs Hillsdon has entered our school into a competition to win £5000 of book tokens! Wouldn't that be a lovely thing to return to school with!

You can help our chances by voting for us on:

So, spread the word and let's get voting!

Power Maths lesson on Position and Direction

Tuesday 12th May.

Well done to those of you who have already had a go at the 'Power of Reading' writing task that I have set you this week.  I have received some lovely letters already! Do have a look at the activity and give it a go.  I would love to see the letters that you write to your friend or relative.  

 

Today's maths task is taken from the Power Maths lessons.  You will still be looking at position and direction but having a go at recording your answers.  The first 'lesson' is on describing turns where you will need to use some of your work that you did on fractions.  You will be using the words half turn and quarter turn.  You could do the activity practically to help you work out the answers.  Please do not feel that you need to print these out.  You can write the answers and show your working either in your exercise books, on paper or even through a photo.  Let me know how you get on.  

Power Maths lessons on Position and Direction

Monday 11th May.

Good Morning Lime Class!  I hope you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday Weekend with your families in the sunshine.  How did you celebrate VE Day?  Some of you have sent me photos already with your activities or celebrations which have been lovely to see, so please do send me your photos too! 

 

This Weeks learning:

Topic - Please continue with the topic sheet for 'Home Sweet Home' especially some of the activities for the Foundation subjects like music, art or history.

Reading - I have checked and updated Bug Club so do log on daily and don't forget to click on the Bug and answer questions on what you have read.  Play the spelling and Grammar games too!

Maths - Today is the last Mathletics task on Position and Direction.  I will then be adding daily Power Maths activities on the topic for you to try and complete.  You may want to practise the 30 or 60 club sheets.  Have a go at the new Times Table Rock Stars if you haven't already!

Writing - This week I am adding a task from the 'Power of Reading' so it is like the work we have done on different books in school. (You won't need a copy of the book to do this task!)  There are 5 steps, but don't worry each one won't take very long.  There is a thinking step and two imagining/drawing steps which will then help with the final writing step.  Below you will find a copy of the task along with a power point, writing frame and writing checklist which you may find useful with the writing at the end.  On the powerpoint, there is a slide with an example letter to a friend or relative which will be particularly helpful for this!  Do please email me if I can help in any way.

Wednesday 6th May

Hopefully you will now all be experts at knowing which way is right and which is left!  Today's task on Mathletics is about position and you will need to use the words above, below, under, beside and inside.  Have a go at doing this practically with some of your toys at home too so that you really understand each word.  Can you give instructions using these words for somebody in your family to follow?  

 

This Friday it is a Bank Holiday to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.   VE Day is also known as Victory in Europe Day and it marks the day towards the end of World War Two.  

 

If you want to learn more about VE Day, you could have a look at the PowerPoint below and read the VE Day information sheet.  Maybe you could create a poster to commemorate the special event!

 

If you enjoy drawing, designing and making things, have a look at the VE Day medal activity. How creative can you be?

If you enjoy some quiet time colouring, have a go at the VE Day colouring sheet. 

If you have the resources available and your parents are happy for you to, why not celebrate by creating some bunting to hang up? You could print out the example and colour the Union Flag or be even more creative and design and make your own bunting. 

 

These are just a few ideas however, there are lots of other activities out there too.  

 

Are you doing anything on Friday to celebrate?  This is a nice idea:

 

Please send in some photos of how you have chosen to celebrate VE Day. We would love to see what you've been doing. 

 

Tuesday 5th May.

Well done for persevering with the maths learning on fractions. I was really pleased to see how many of you had used objects or drawn pictures to help you work out the answers.  

On mathletics we are today starting a new topic about position and direction. You might want to practise your lefts and rights first. This picture might help you to remember:

You could blindfold a family member and guide them around the house, I would love to see a video! Use the language left, right, forward, backwards, up, down.  For a challenge, see if you can use some of your learning on fractions to use the language half turn and quarter turn.

Monday 4th May

 


I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for 4 days of home learning this week.

Topic - Please continue with the topic sheet ‘Home Sweet Home.’ I was super impressed to see that some of you were having a go at some of the other subject activities as well as the maths and English tasks. 
Reading - Log onto Bug club daily and answer the questions on what you have read.  
​​​​​​​Maths - Complete the daily Mathletics/Power Maths tasks.  You may want to practise the 30 or 60 club sheets.  Have a go at the new Times Tables Rock Stars.

​​​​​​​Writing - Practise your handwriting and spelling of the Year 1 words (Rainbow Words).  Log into Bug Club and play the Spelling and Grammar games.

​​​​​​​Optional Extras - Oak Academy or BBC Bitesize lessons. 
 

Today’s Maths Learning.

​​​​​​​It is the last lesson on fractions today and you will be solving Word problems using halves and quarters.  Remember a whole means how many altogether, a half is 2 equal groups and quarters is 4 equal groups.  Make sure that you use objects to help you to work out the answers or draw your own pictures to show me how you worked it out.  
 

Remember to email me any of your learning or if you need help or support with anything limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

 

Have fun, stay safe and keep on being the best you can be! 😀​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Friday 1st May

Pinch, punch first of the month!  

I was so impressed that so many of you had a go with the Power Maths work on halves yesterday.  It was really good to see you doing it practically too so that you fully understand it.  If you haven't sent me yours then I would love to see how you got on with it.   

For today's maths learning I would like you to have a go at these Power Maths lessons on quarters.  For the second one where you are finding a quarter of an amount, it may help you if you did it practically by using counters, objects or even pasta, and sorting them into 4 groups.  Let me know how you get on!

Thursday 30th April

Hello Lime class.  How is your week going?  I have been sent some super learning already this week.  Some of it is on our 'Home Sweet Home' topic and a lot of amazing maths learning too!   It's also been lovely to see all the other fun things you are getting up to! Please keep all the emails coming!

 

Mathletics.

Some of you may have realised that I have not set you any new mathletics tasks for today!  I have been really impressed with how many of you have been logging on and working your way through each activity I have set for you.  However, the tasks that you are now doing is new learning and not things that we have already covered in class.  The last tasks that you will have done was on fractions.  If we were together in class we would have been looking at halves and quarters and taking your learning a little bit further. So to help you with this, I am adding some of the Power Maths lessons that we would have been working our way through in the classroom.  Each 'lesson' starts with a Discover question which will then have the answer and an explanation next to it.  There will then be some activities for you to work through.  Please do not feel that you need to print these out.  You can write the answers and show your working either in your exercise books, on paper or even through a photo.  

I hope you will find these helpful and that it will also give you a chance to practise recording your answers just like we would at school.  

Please do email me if you would like anymore help or support with this. limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

Good morning Lime class! I hope you all managed to enjoy the glorious sunshine at the weekend - the April showers are on their way! 

Thank you for all the emails with your fantastic work.  It’s so lovely to see the brilliant learning you are doing and what you are getting up to.  Please do keep sending them to me! 
 

This week I would like you to continue with our Home Sweet Home topic.  Maybe have a go at listening to a family members favourite piece of music, or drawing a portrait of a pet/toy, or finding out about homes around the world.  There are lots of different activities for each subject that you could try. Don’t forget your daily Mathletics tasks and logging into Bug Club. 
 

Phonics.

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each Read, Write Inc (RWI) level.  Please go to the website below and go into ‘ebooks.’ Then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child.  Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 4 times before moving onto a new book.  For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out).  
This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 
Ruth Miskin has a ‘daily phonics’ set 3 speed sounds at 10.30 on her YouTube channel that you could watch too. 
Please send me an email if you would like any help or support with this - limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

 

Have fun and stay safe!

I have been super impressed with all the learning I have been sent on our new topic 'Home Sweet Home.'  Keep up the great work!  If you have made a start and not emailed it to me yet then please do as I love to see the work you are doing.

 

Rainbows have become a symbol of support for NHS workers during the past few weeks.  You may have created one and put it in your window or seen some on your daily exercise walk.  I'm sure lots of you enjoy clapping for carers every Thursday too.  I have added some rainbow words that I would like you to have a go at practising to read and write.  They are the Year 1 Common Exception Words/Red words that we work so hard on in school. I am sure you will be suprised at how many you know already.  

 

Keep going on Mathletics and your daily reading too!  Keep checking the Home Sweet Home slide show as I am adding all your fantastic work to it every day! 

Yesterday was St George's Day and Megan found out why we celebrate it and wrote her own story about St George.  I've put a photo of it below so that you can all see what a great job she did!  Well Done Megan!

Thursday 23rd April

I hope you are all ok and enjoying doing some of the activities from our new topic? Remember to please send me anything that you have done - limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk

 

The attached document below has some free resources that have been offered by the BBC, the government's new online National Academy and our own PASS PE network. Our expectations for the children's learning have not changed from when we first started online learning. These are additional ideas that you may wish to use or for those who would like a more formal learning routine.

 

Continue with your daily mathletics tasks and activities on Bug Club.  Most importantly, keep on having fun and creating memories with your family.

Term 5 Week 1 - Monday 20th April.

Good morning Lime class!  I hope you all had a nice weekend? I have loved looking at your decorated Easter eggs and all the fun things you got up to during the Easter holidays.

This term our topic is going to be 'Home Sweet Home!'  I know you are all going to enjoy this topic as it is one that you can take full advantage of being at home to complete the activities as it would be very tricky to do most of these at school!  I have tried to include lots of different activities for each subject so have a go at completeing tasks from each area.  The main thing I want you to remember is to have fun finding out more about your family and where you live!  I have attached the poem 'Halfway Down' by A.A. Milne to save you trying to find it.  I have also created a number facts and times of the day sheets that may help you with some of the maths tasks.  There is also a story mountain just like we have used in class that will help you with your traditional tale story.  These can be printed out or copied into your books/on paper for you to use.    

I will still be setting you daily maths tasks on Mathletics so please make sure you have a go at these too each day.

You all have books to read on Bug Club as well.  I have also added some fun spelling and grammar activities that you can have a go at.  I've been super impressed that some of you have found these already and have had a go at them!  

Don't forget to send us your learning as Mrs Fuller and I love seeing how you are getting on.  (limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk).

Have a fun week and remember to keep letting your light shine!

Mrs Woodhouse smiley

Friday 17th April

It’s been great hearing from some of you and finding out all the fun things you have done over Easter. I’ve seen some photos of delicious chocolatey cakes you have baked and some impressive arts and crafts.  Please do send me anything that you have been up to via the class email address. I was also really happy to receive your decorated Easter eggs.  I have posted some below so you can see what your friends got up to. Have a go at doing yours too and remember to send it to me!

Hope you are all well and had a lovely Easter.  Don’t forget that Mrs Fuller and I would love to see what you have been up to - did you do any Easter arts and crafts or any Easter baking - do send us your photos to our class email address limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk.

Remember to keep reading and do the activities on Bug club - I have been checking to see who has logged in and what books you have been reading! 
I will continue to unlock daily Mathletics tasks for you to complete.  We are starting a topic about length and height so you may want to have a go at measuring things in your home or garden.  Can you find something that is longer/taller or shorter? 
Have a go at this activity too:

In your workbooks draw an Easter egg.  Inside your Easter egg write down any words or phrases to describe your Easter holidays. Decorate your egg by colouring it in lightly. Have a look at mine below! 😀 Don’t forget to send me yours!

We have now reached the last day of Term 4 and our very well deserved Easter holidays! 

It has been lovely to hear from so many of you so please continue doing so, even if it’s just to let me know that you are okay. limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk I have included some of the amazing learning you have sent to me, so I hope you can have a look through and celebrate the work you have all been doing! 

I have been so impressed to see that so many of you are doing the daily activities on Mathletics and also logging into Bug Club.  I won’t be setting anymore daily tasks on Mathletics now until Thursday 16th April which will be the start of Term 5.  You can still play on live Mathletics though to practise your mental recall skills.

During the Easter break I won’t be updating the class page as frequent but do keep a look out as I will still add posts every now and again.  
If you haven’t already, do try and watch Rev Green’s Easter Service on our school website along with a message from Mr Clark.  
I gave my daughter the challenge of a scavenger book hunt this morning which she enjoyed doing and kept her busy for a while.  I’ve attached it below in case any of you would like to have a go.

Enjoy your Easter break.

Stay safe and have fun!

I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to get out and have some fresh air. We are now beginning our second week of working like this! 
This week will continue with reading books on bug club and tasks on Mathletics.  I will assign you a few different activities each day so please carry on with these.  Remember you can do other types of maths at home too! 
If we were at school this week then we would have been sharing Term 4s Home Learning with each other.  Have a go at completing some of the activities on there especially the ones on Africa.  Don’t forget you can also email that to me too - I’d love to see what you have done! I’ll add some photos on here to so you can celebrate each other’s work. 
I have included a picture of some free daily activities or resources from some famous names. I’m sure lots of you have had a go at The PE sessions with Joe Wicks!

Good afternoon Lime class!

It has been a very strange week. I have missed seeing all your smiling faces in the morning!  

 

Please keep sending in your fantastic home learning, it has been great to see how busy you have all been.  

A huge well done to all of you who have completed the daily Mathletics tasks set so far.  I will continue to set daily tasks for you to have a go at.  I will update Bug Club too for those children running low on books to read.  

 

I have added the 30 and 60 club challenges for those of you who want to practise these at home.  You can either print these sheets or read questions from a screen and write the answers in your exercise book.  Remember you have 10 minutes to complete each sheet!  Let me know how you get on!  

 

Remember to stay safe, look after your Mums and Dads - they are working incredibly hard and learning lots too! 

 

Here is a challenge for you....Each day see if you can do one act of kindness - help set the table for dinner, tidy your room without being asked, empty the dishwasher or anything that helps your family.  Send in pictures or email me with what you have done - limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk  

 

Look after each other and have a great weekend.

Dear Lime Class,

Mrs Fuller and I hope you’re all well and staying safe with your families.

A special email address has been set up limeteacher@west-malling.kent.sch.uk that you can contact us on. The email will act a bit like a virtual classroom, so it would be lovely to hear from you. Of course you can ask us questions about the work you are doing, and we’ll do our best to help you, but it would be lovely just to hear what you’re up to and how you’re keeping yourselves busy!

 

There will be three different types of learning that are regularly updated and that we expect you to do.

 

Mathletics

I have unlocked the first task of our numbers to 20 unit, I will unlock 1 or 2 pieces a day for you. Don’t forget to click on the information icon (i) in the activities if you want some hints, tips and teaching to help you! I will be keeping an eye on how you’re doing, but please email if you’re finding something tricky and would like some help.

 

Bug Club

You have lots of books allocated on Bug Club. Please make sure you email us if, after you’ve read a couple of the book, you’re finding them too easy or too difficult. Of course, this time at home is an absolutely ideal time to get stuck into some ‘real’ books!

 

Websites

I will be adding some useful website links to this page that you can use to help you with your learning.  Keep an eye out for some new ones!

 

Work packs

Don’t forget that you have some ideas that were sent home with you that you can have a go at working through too. Also, use the exercise book to record some of your work or use it as a diary. 

 

Take pride in your work, they will be a piece of history for you in the future to look back on. Remember to be the best you can be and let your light shine! We are all missing you already and remember, we are still here to help you. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

 

Mrs Woodhouse

Year 1 Common Exception Words - please practise reading these words and using them in your writing.

Unfortunately, due to recent advice and updates, our class assembly next Tuesday is now cancelled. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.  We will hopefully be able to reschedule our assembly for later on in the school year. 

In our science lessons the last few weeks we have been learning about our senses. This morning the children had a go at activities that enabled them to use all of their five senses. We started by using our sense of hearing by listening to a variety of everyday sounds and guessing what they were. For the sense of smell, they had different flavoured crisps to smell and guess what flavour they were - they found this the hardest one! There were different ‘magic pictures’ for them to use their sense of sight including finding a face in a photo of coffee beans! They had different objects in a feely bag to use their sense of touch and for their sense of taste, they had a fruit mento and had to guess whether they had a strawberry, lemon or orange flavour sweet!

In our science lessons the last few weeks we have been learning about our senses. This morning the children had a go at activities that enabled them to use all of their five senses. We started by using our sense of hearing by listening to a variety of everyday sounds and guessing what they were.  For the sense of smell, they had different flavoured crisps to smell and guess what flavour they were - they found this the hardest one!

The children were all so engaged looking at photos of African life that Boaz’s Mum had kindly sent in for us to use. They were all so interested in finding out about schools in Africa, how they cook/wash clothes and were fascinated by the photos of their showers and toilets! Thank you to Boaz’s Mum - these have really helped us with our learning on our topic of ‘Out of Africa.’

Thank you to all the children who created a potato as a book character. They all looked brilliant and it was very hard to choose a winner!

Wow! All the children looked amazing today dressed as either a monster or an alien. Well done to all the children and their parents for the effort to make the costumes and join in the fun on World Book Day!

This morning we visited West Malling library. The librarian told us all about Kent libraries and how to use the library service. We couldn’t wait to get back to school to have a read of our library books! Most children will be bringing their library books home with them today so please remember to take them back before 23rd March.

We had a fantastic visit from the author Ian MacDonald today. He told us lots of stories and helped us think about how we could use our ideas and imagination to create our own stories. Ian started us off with an idea from his book and we are going to continue this throughout book week.

Term 4 Newsletter and Home Learning

We have had more amazing home learning this term! The children shared their work with others this afternoon and really love looking at each other’s books. There were also some fabulous models made from junk which the children confidently shared with the class saying what they had made, what they had used and how they made it. Well done Lime Class ! 🤩🙂

Some children have brought in some teddy bears, china doll and a ‘Magic Roundabout’ book that belonged to their Mummy’s when they were little girls. We compared the china doll to a doll made from plastic and talked about the differences. We also compared an old teddy bear with a new one.

We had a fun afternoon looking at toys from the past and comparing them to toys we have today.

On Friday morning we became scientists and carried out some investigations to find out which material would be the best to create an umbrella for Ted. We looked at the properties of 5 different materials and predicted which one we thought would keep Ted dry. We also spoke about how we could make it a fair test - how much water we poured on, how far away from the material we drop the water and how long we leave the water before we looked at the result. We found that paper was not a good material to use but foil would keep Ted dry.

We are really enjoying reading our power of reading book “The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon.” This morning we looked at a picture from the book and in groups of 3 we had a go at creating a ‘freeze frame’ of the scene. We each took on a character; either Dad, Emma or egg box dragon, and copied their facial expressions and body language. When we were tapped on the shoulder, we unfroze and said what the character might me saying, thinking or feeling. We then had a go at writing these ideas in speech bubbles in our English books.

We really enjoyed talking about our favourite toys today and showing each other what they could do. Some had remote controls, some made a noise, some could stretch and some were furry. We also thought about what material our toys were made from. Most of them were made from plastic or metal.

This afternoon we took part in a PERFORM drama workshop. We had fun exploring different countries around the world to find the golden starfish for the queens birthday! We ventured through France, Spain and Japan before ending up in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. We found the golden starfish but an octopus was guarding it! Every time The octopus came we had to freeze like a statue so he didn’t see us! We did such a good job as we managed to get the golden starfish for the queen!

We all enjoyed using our designs to create our own egg box dragons this afternoon!

This morning we had a visit from firefighter Vern who told us ways to keep ourselves safe and what to do if there is a fire. He reminded us of the number we need to call if there is an emergency and what we need to shout if we see a fire - “FIRE! FIRE!” He also taught us some rhymes to help us remember and told us to remind our grown ups to check the fire alarms in our homes once a week!

This term in our maths learning we have started to look at subtraction. We have been so impressed with how well the children have been using counters, pictures and ten frames to show their working. They have also become so much more independent in using their power maths books too! Well done Lime Class - keep it up!

This afternoon we started looking at our topic ‘where does food come from?’ We found out where bread comes from and each made our own bread roll. We looked at each of the ingredients - flour, yeast, salt, sugar, oil - and talked about where each one came from. We cooked the rolls at the end of the day and tomorrow the children will be seeing their bread making results and tasting it. Hopefully they will think it tastes delicious!

We have been invited to decorate a tree at St Mary’s Church for their Christmas Tree Festival this weekend. The children thought about what they would like to be when they are older and have created a figure that will hang on the schools Christmas tree. If you are in West Malling for the turning on of the lights at the weekend, do try and visit the church to see the decorations on the tree.

In our story Pattan has a problem - “but how were they going to take all of the creatures with them?” We thought about what Pattan could do to solve his problem and then used the ‘whispering technique’ to share our ideas with others.

We have created signs/posters for Pattan to put up next to his growing pumpkin. We thought about what we could say to make sure that people look after the pumpkin and treat it correctly.

We tried something a bit different in our English lesson this morning - the next 2 pages from our ‘power of reading’ text was read to the children without them seeing the illustration. The class were asked to close their eyes and listen to the words. What did they picture when they were listening? The children were then given the chance to use water colours to draw what they were picturing in their mind while they listened to the language. We had some lovely pictures to go with the text. “One day, Pattan found an ailing plant in the valley. It had beautiful yellow flowers. I’ll plant it by my hut and look after it, he thought. The plant liked its new home. Its yellow flowers smiled at the sun. Look! Pattan called one day. A pumpkin has started to grow.”

This afternoon we visited St Mary’s Church and Rev Green spoke to us about the history of the church. We learnt so much information including what the different parts of the church are called, the oldest gravestone in the churchyard, how to ring the church bells, the great storm and fire that destroyed part of the church and a very rare but expensive Malling jug! Thank you so much to Rev Green for taking the time to talk to us and fill us with so much interesting history that we will be able to use in our learning in school.

Maths - 13/11/19 - Number Bonds. Today in maths we used ten frames and two different coloured counters to make number bonds up to 10. We had a go at finding all the different ways we could find for each number then had a go at saying the number sentence for the numbers we had made.

We had a good time visiting Macey’s Meadow and looking at the different types of plants. We collected leaves from cherry, hawthorn and sycamore trees and also saw other plants like holly, cow parsley and ivy. We have brought the leaves back to the class and will sort them into the different trees.

Thursday 7th November 

We are hoping to visit Macey’s Meadow tomorrow to help us with our new science topic of ‘plants.’  We are hoping the weather stays dry and that it won’t be too muddy but will make a decision on the day as to whether we still go ahead with our visit Or postpone it to another day.  You may want to send your child into school with Wellington boots or alternative footwear to change into for our walk.  

 

We have used pumpkin seeds to create a tree in the Autumn. First we painted the seeds and used brown tissue paper to make the tree. Then we stuck the seeds on to show what trees look like during the season of Autumn. Our pictures are now hanging on display in our classroom.

Term 2 Newsletter and Home Learning

This afternoon we went on an Autumn Walk around the school grounds to see what signs of Autumn we could find. We used a checklist to tick off the things that we saw and also added any other signs of Autumn we found.

Welcome back to Term 2!

 

It was lovely to hear all the exciting things the children had been up to during the half term.  They have all come back to school eager to learn! Just a reminder that PE will still be on Wednesdays and Fridays this term so children will need PE kits in school on these days. 

Interviewing the Lonely Beast!

Still image for this video
This week we have become news reporters and interviewed the Lonely Beast just like they did in the story. We thought of questions we could ask him to find out more information and also got into role as the Beast to think of replies. We then presented our own news programme. The children have worked really hard on using expression and getting into a role! We hope you enjoy watching our news broadcasts!

Don’t forgot that Home Learning books are due in on Monday! I am looking forward to seeing your work.  

We have used different types of construction to make our own city for the Beast. It was lovely to see the children so engaged and talking about what was in their city.

Jellyfish poems

Still image for this video
We became poets this week! We used the poem ‘Jellyfish’ by Michael Rosen as inspiration. Firstly we watched some videos of jellyfish and thought about words we could use to describe them, how they move and what they reminded us of. We then used those words to create some phrases eg “ like a balloon at a birthday party.” Working in groups, we arranged our words and phrases to create our own poems. We hope you enjoy listening to them!

Due to the weather this afternoon, we did not go on our walk around West Malling. We will now be going on Thursday 3rd October instead.

We have designed our own Beast to be a friend for the lonely Beast from our story. We then had fun using salt dough to create our Beast. We looked carefully at our designs and added detail/materials to the dough. We will be painting our creations later on in the week!

We look forward to seeing you at our Welcome Afternoon on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th September at 2.30.  

 

Our Visit to Macey’s Meadow - 16/09/19

We visited Macey’s Meadow to support our geography and science learning.  We talked about the differences between human and physical features and looked out for some of these. We also looked for signs that the season of Autumn is on the way.

Today we have been on a Beast Journey like Beast did in our story.  We went through the forest, crossed a dangerous river, jumped off a giant waterfall and even crept through a dark cave! 

Tuesday 10th September

We had great fun in our English lesson this morning recreating the scene from our book ‘The Lonely Beast.’ The children worked in groups to take on a character from the picture and then freeze frame the scene.
