Autumn- Week 5

Year One are having a busy week preparing for Advent and practising for our KS1 performance. The children are doing a great job of learning all the songs for the play and it is a joy to hear the class singing together!

In Re the children have been learning the Hail Mary prayer and praying it together. We also asked the question, Why is Mary a special lady? The children produced some fantastic answers such as caring, loving, kind and went on to label a picture of Mary. They also discussed how Mary is a special lady because she was the mother of Jesus.

In English this week we have been learning about Verbs.- action words! We have talked about all the jobs that Framer Duck had to do and put these into sentences. Furthermore, we looked at sentence structure and rewrote incorrect sentences into their correct form. The children are working hard to remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of their sentence, finger spaces and a capital letter at the end. During continuous provision we have enjoyed making collage masks of characters from the story and we will use some of these for a class display.


As a class we have taken part in Circle Time and discussed what makes a good listener. The children took it in turns to listen to each other during Circle time and Show and Tell, waiting patiently and following our circle time rules.

In Geography this week the children have been learning about physical and human geography. They sorted photos into two groups and learnt that human geography is mainly largely built environments, whilst physical geography is mostly natural or semi-natural environments.

To end the week Year 2 treated us to their Shark Tales. Year 2 children wrote a book about sharks and partnered up with Year 1 to read and share their story. It was a lovely afternoon enjoyed by all.
