Red Class 2017/18

Autumn 2

This half term our topic will be celebrations. The main celebrations we will be looking at are; Bonfire night, birthdays and Christmas.  

We decorated firework biscuits using different coloured icing and cocktail sticks. We chose two colours of icing and used the cocktail stick to make patterns.

Autumn 1

This half term our topic will be Nursery Rhymes. We will be using Nursery Rhymes to link to some of the activities we do in class.

This is our number of the week table. We will be using Numberland to help us. This is a number 1 Numberland house. By Christmas we will have a completed Numberland all the way up to 10. 

In Red Class we have a different sound each week. These are some of the items from our 's' table.

This is our hall display. We each made a vegetable to go on the display. Some of us then worked as a group to make the scarecrow, birds and soil.

This is all of the food donated for harvest. It was delivered to the local food bank. Thank you for you donations!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red class 2016/2017

Summer term 2017

Summer 2

Our topic this half term is Our World. We will be looking at the local area, talking about space and dinosaurs and also life cycles, babies and their young. 

Our school trip to Haverings

We had an amazing day out at Haverings. We traveled by coach, we took part in a bug hunt, went on a walk through the woods, played outside games and saw Safari Stu. 

Summer 1

This half term we are learning all about minibeasts. These are some of our displays.

For the next 12 weeks we are taking part in playtrition. This programme is designed to teach children to understand and make healthy lifestyle choices. They will be introduced to characters called Joe and Emma and will be given the opportunity to explore different foods, find out where they come from and learn what’s healthy and what’s not. The children will also be told about the importance of eating breakfast, how to keep our teeth healthy and how food gives us energy. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children and I am sure they will really enjoy it.

Design and technology

We made vehicles with Mr Sharp. We used a saw to cut wood, hammer to insert pins, glue to put the frame together and sticky plastic to decorate.

Spring term 2017

Spring 2

Our topic this half term is books. We will be reading and exploring lots of different stories. 

We had a big surprise when Elmer came to life! We have all been working on painting him. When it is finished we will use him as a working wall.

Book week 2017

We took part in lots of fun activities for book week. We had a visit from an author and illustrator. They taught us how to draw a bear using different shapes. Funky Fairy took us on an adventure through the Fairy tale forest and we all dressed up as book characters. 

Talk for writing- Juicing station 

In our juicing station we had; grapefruit, lime, lemon and oranges. We had to make a drink (to pretend to drink) and then write the recipe down so that our friends could make it if they wanted to. 

In Red Class we have been focusing on mouse control and making sure that everyone in our class can use the mouse correctly. This will help us when we move up the school as mouse and keyboard skills are really important. 

Spring 1

Our topic this term is colours

We had to follow the instructions to make a colour wheel. 

Our kindness tree

In red class for this term we have a kindness tree. Every time a grown up sees something kind they will add a leaf to the tree. We hope to have a full tree by March!
