We have been doing lots of construction this week using different construction materials including Mobilo. What have you constructed this week?

What physical exercise have you done this week?
Today we have challenged ourselves on the climbing frame, remembering to keep safe and to bend our knees when we land. What would you do to challenge yourself?
Today we learned to use a number line to ‘add 1 more’. We looked at the order of numbers and learned that we had to jump forwards 1 jump when adding 1 more.
Can you add 1 more to a given number?
Today class 1 participated in a sponsored fun run to raise money for Operation Christmas Child. We all did very well. How much have you raised for Operation Christmas child through our sponsored run?
Today we learned to write the grapheme ‘e’. We had to think carefully where to start the grapheme as we wrote it. Then we said the phoneme.
How many words can you think of which begin with ‘e’?
We are learning to write our name. We have practised scribing each grapheme and have begun to learn to use our new name cards. We have written our name using chalks, paint and water, coloured pens, pencils and crayons. We have also used gloop! Can you write your name yet?
This week we are learning to use equipment in our new class. Today we used mobilo, fixing pieces together and making our own models. Then we explored using work cards where we matched pieces and made a model. It was great fun and we were very proud of our models. Can you think of other equipment we could learn to use to make models?
Today we used the peg boards to create pictures. We had to really concentrate when picking the small pegs up and placing them in holes in the peg board. Then we counted pegs and talked about different colour pegs we had used.
