Class 1 Blog
Term 1 week 1
Since we have been back to school we have been doing all of our lessons. Our new topic is all about space! We have five new reception children and they have settled well into school. The year 1's and Year 2's have got new homework folders and they are very excited about doing their homework! We are very happy because we get to mix with Class 2 again for assemblies and at play time and lunch time. We have also been back on the library bus for the first time since lockdown!
Term 1 week 2
This week we have been learning about the sun. We have learned some amazing facts. Did you know that the sun has special gravity that pulls the other planets towards it? We also found out that the sun is one million three hundred thousand times bigger than the Earth! In art we painted pictures of the sun using red and yellow paint and we mixed them to make orange.
Our reception children have started doing full days and they have had their first PE and music lessons with us. In Science we have been looking at our shadows. We drew around each other's shadows on the playground with chalk. When ever we were back in the playground we looked to see if our shadow would be in the same place. We noticed that our shadows moved because the sun was shining from a different direction. Sometimes we couldn't see our shadows because the sun was covered by clouds. Our new school councillors met for the first time this week and they discussed our school rules. On Friday they are going to get their school council badges!
