Ms Huntington: November 2015
Wow! Welcome back base 1!
We cannot believe how grown up our children are after their half term holiday! What a lovely surprise we got on Monday when you all came back to school a little bit taller, a little bit older and really ready to listen and learn a lot!
We had great fun learning about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. We watched a firework display above the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Our firework pictures are fabulous. We splattered paint everywhere to make them, even on Mrs Parsons!! It is amazing how good we are all getting at drawing. We couldn't believe the pictures of Guy Fawkes, he looked so real just like the painting!
We have enjoyed pretending to be Little Red Riding Hood in our story this week and learning some songs to go with the story. Next week we will go into the woods to tell the story again. We have got fantastic costumes to dress up in so we look like real Red Riding Hood, the real wolf, the real woodcutter and real Grandma!
We had a challenge in our numbers this week. We could only have 5 counters and we had to find all the different ways of grouping five. We found out it could be 5 & 0, 4 & 1, 3 & 2. Then we did the same for six. We are going to carry on doing this next week.
Next week we are going to learn about money, we have a real shop in our classroom. We are going to write a shopping list for Little Red Riding Hood. She needs to go to the shop before she can go to Grandma's house!
We are really looking forward to Underwater Street, where we will be able to pretend in a real supermarket, a real pizza parlour, we can dress up as anything we like, we can be builders, artists, climbers and scientists. There is a fantastic water area, we will make a boat that moves along the water on it's own and we can pan for gold. There is very dark tunnel but we can use torches to see our way through to the other side! it is going to be so much fun.
We can't wait to go to Liverpool!
