Autumn 1

Welcome to our class page!

This term we have had a fantastic time learning all about our topic ‘Marvellous Me’.  We have played lots of ‘getting to know each other games’.

In literacy we have been using Read Write Inc. to help us learn lots of sounds.  Fred frog has been teaching us to blend these sounds to read simple cvc words.

We have also learnt the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ using ‘Talk for Writing’ methods.  We had a lovely hen named Rosie come and visit us.  Ask us to retell it to you using actions – we are fantastic!

In maths we have been looking at numbers.  The Dormice are fantastic at counting forwards and backwards, ordering numbers to 20 and writing numbers beautifully.

In computing we have begun to look at programming, we use the amazing Code-a-Pillars to help us (I think they are our favourite thing to play with at the moment!)

On Halloween Dormice and Hedgehog class decided to come to school dressed in our Halloween costumes.  We wrote about and made potions, we created pumpkins and we even had a witch come and visit us and teach us to use a spinning wheel.  It was lots of fun!
