Welcome to Class 8 
Miss Bates

Healthy Fortnight

We had a great time during the last couple of weeks trying out new activities; from drumba to climbing walls! Have a look at all the wonderful things that we got up to.

Trip to Conkers

We had a super duper time at Conkers. We were brave on our barefoot walk and messy making mud monsters.

The eggs have arrived!

 

We are so excited that our duckling eggs have arrived today. The grown ups from the farm that they came from, talked to us about how to care for the eggs and we even got to see what the ducks will look like when they have grown up. We are keeping a close eye on them to see if they hatch after the bank holiday weekend.

Cooking Soup

 

Class 8 had a great time on Friday making leek and potato soup. We learned the safest way to chop vegetables and wrote recipes about how to make the soup. It was delicious!!!

Caves Trip
Last week we visited The City of Caves! We had a great time exploring the caves deep underneath Nottingham. We also went to the National Justice Museum and got to explore an old police station and try on old and new police uniforms. We even got to dress up as characters from Robin Hood in a big courtroom and decide whether he was a goodie or a baddie.

Bonfire Night

We have been celebrating Bonfire Night in Year 1 with a day of firework fun. We got the sparkly glitter out and made firework patterns from straws and pipe cleaners. We also made firework rockets to bring home. We even had a go at using ink to marble paper and make pretty patterns. Have a look at what we have been getting up to.

Houses and Homes

In Year One this half term we have been looking at houses and homes. We have been really interested in lots of different types of houses and this has made us think about what we might want in our dream house!

We have been lucky enough to have been visited by Jackson-Crane Architecture this week to extend our thinking about our dream homes. 

We talked about who an architect is and what jobs they do. We also looked at some floorplans before creating our own for our dream houses! 

Pictures to follow soon!!



Below is a list of useful phonics games which can be played at home with your children to support them with their reading. These games are also accessible on most tablets and smart phone devices.


Picnic on Pluto
https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/PicnicOnPluto.html
Select either Phase 3 (for an easier challenge), Phase 4 (to practise blending consonants together) or 5 (to practise something new/trickier). Choose between practising one specific sound (i.e. ‘ay’) or practising all the sounds in that phase by clicking the ‘revise all’ button in the bottom right hand corner. The children will then need to read the word that appears and decide whether the word is ‘real’ or ‘made up’ and then feed it to the right alien. We use this game lots in school so the children should be familiar. There are also lots of other free games on this website if you wish to explore!! ‘Dragon’s Den’ and ‘Buried Treasure’ follow the same format.

 

Phoneme Pop
http://www.ictgames.com/phonemePopLS_v2.html
Start by selecting the group of sounds you would like to practise (and making sure the volume on your computer/device is turned up!) The children will be given one of these sounds and will need to pop as many bubbles as they can with the same sound on as possible. Have fun!


Deep Sea Phonics
http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks1/literacy/phonics/play/
In this game, children can practise spelling as well as reading. Choose a difficulty (make sure the volume on your computer/device is turned up again!) and listen to the word. The children will then need to choose the right sounds to blend together to spell the word.


Children can also use their phonics mats to help them break down unfamiliar words when reading at home.

 

If you have any questions or would like a new phonics mat, please catch us on the playground.
