Class 1 is taught by Mrs Willington on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Middleton on Thursday and Friday. We are very lucky to have Mrs Walker who supports in Class 1 as a Teaching Assistant all week.
Our topic this half term is Traditional Tales.
We are reading Little Red by Beth Woolvin.
We found a basket of cakes, with a red cloak, with a label "To Grandma Love From Little Red" abandoned in our classroom. We discussed it and worked out that Little Red and Grandma must of been eaten by the Big Bad Wolf. We decided that we must make a trap to catch the wolf.
The following morning, Mr Addis found the wolf in the trap. He freed Little Red and Grandma and the wolf promised that he would be a good wolf from now on.
We have now received a letter from the Royal Prevention of Cruelty to Grandma's and they would like us to write some instructions on how to make a trap to help Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs, who are having problems with wolves.
In Maths we are learning to use Money.
In topic, we will be programming Beebots to get through the forest to Grandmas house and painting scenes from the text using mixed medias.
We have introduced a model table in the classroom to encourage writing for a purpose. When the children make a model we are encouraging them to write a label about what there model is.
In Read Write Inc, we are recapping our sounds. We will be sending home books every Tuesday and Friday. Some children will be having Ditty Sheets twice a week too.
