Good afternoon everyone

I cannot believe the end of term is here! and my last day at St Cleer!

We have had such a lovely week of summer fun. This week we have been singing and crafting and exploring the forest school area. We have had a wonderful sports morning and lots of other fun activities too. Today we finished off with a movie and sweets!! We have loved it and we think everyone has deserved such a great week!

Attached to this blog is the song we have been learning in music this half term, the children have really enjoyed learning this song- enjoy!

This year seems to have flown by, we have all been faced with such difficult times however the children have amazed me with their resilience to the changes and I am so very proud of them.

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your support whilst your children have been in my class, I have loved teaching them ALL. I will miss them all so very much!

May I also thank you for all the wonderful best wishes and gifts this week, I feel really overwhelmed with your kindness and words – thank you!

I will miss you all lots and wish you all a great summer and start to the new term in September, I will be thinking of all the children on the first day for sure!

Take care, best wishes

The children started to understand instructions and were able to complete 1 step, 2 step, 3 step and even 4 step instructions out on the playground- we had so much fun!

Friday 9th July 

Hello all

Happy Friday- Two Fridays left …WOW!

We have had such fun this week with our learning.

This week’s learning:

English

This week we have explored list poems. We have explored a range of list poems and we have been able to recall features of poems. We have been getting into groups and learning to recite some different poems with expression and think of actions that go with them. We learnt the poem ‘Inside My Head’ off by heart and performed it to the rest of our class. Today we tried to think of great adjectives to add top a poem.

Maths

The year one children have been revisiting and exploring money this week. They have worked hard to recognise the different coins and notes. The children then looked at counting coins and notes to make amounts. Today we worked hard to count coins and then use or less than, greater than and equal to signs to compare. 

The year two children have been exploring statistics. They have been reading and interpreting data within a tally chart. They have also been collecting data and drawing their own tally charts. The children have also started to explore pictograms this week.

PSHE

We completed our lesson on body parts including the real names for our private parts this week. We discussed all of the correct vocabulary and then sorted the body parts into boys, girls and both using a Venn diagram.

Science

In Science this week we had three groups of children that worked on a rotational basis. One group completed a plants word search, one group completed some plants colouring and drawing activities and one group weeded, sieved, and planted the flowers in our flower bed. It looks amazing and the children worked so hard to make it beautiful. We had so many lovely donations from all of you and then we learnt lots of names of plants we had not seen before. Thank you for your donations.

Learning Adventure

In Learning Adventure this week, we continued to explore our question ‘How does our local area compare to the rest of the world’- This week on Wednesday we looked at food from the continent of Asia and we had a tasting afternoon. The children all tasted: Onion bhajis, samosas, Chicken curry, Naan bread, papadums, and prawn crackers. We all really enjoyed this. On Thursday we explored      ’field to fork’ and where lots of our food comes from and today, we made yummy tortilla wrap pizzas when we looked at food from the continent of Europe.

We have had such a fun week.

Maths:

Year one children have completed their maths assessment this week and have done so well. We have also continued to explore place value to 100 and have worked hard to use base 10 to recognise larger numbers and then compare numbers to see if they are greater than or less than. 

Year two children have also completed their maths assessment and tried really hard. The children used blank number limes this week to estimate where numbers were situated. The children did this using prior number knowledge and having an understanding the increments on the number the line.

This week’s learning:

 English:

The children have continued to explore traditional stories from different cultures and this week read and learnt a few more Australian dreamtime stories – the children are really enjoying these stories. They have worked hard to use their VIPERS skills. They have tried their best to explore past tense verbs and find these in writing and use them in their own writing. The children have learnt a dreamtime story off by heart, verbally rehearsed this with a partner and also performed the story in drama! This was super exciting, the children loved acting as the Australian animals and performed the story so well!

Year ones have explored place value to 100 this week and have concentrated on consolidating knowledge of identifying tens and ones within a number. They have also worked hard at comparing larger numbers and looking at whether the numbers are, less than, greater than or equals to.

Year twos have also been exploring place value and have been using place value counters and part whole models to explore different combinations of numbers to make a whole number. The children have enjoyed revisiting the place value charts and understanding their values up to 100. They have loved using all the resources to help them, with their learning this week.

We have continued to explore traditional stories from other cultures, and we have read a range of Australian dreamtime stories. We love the story of ‘Why Tiddilick Laughed’. We have worked hard this week to identify features of a traditional story, we have revisited contractions and spent some time finding contractions within text and practicing writing contractions and also extending them. We have practiced orally retelling a story and ensuring we use expression in our reading whilst decoding tricky words.

Maths:

Year ones finished the genre of position and direction and completed the post unit test, where everyone tried really hard. We then started a new genre of place value to 100 and the children completed a pre unit test to explore their knowledge so far. Yesterday we practiced lots of different ways to count to 100. We counted in 1’s, 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We worked hard to count different objects in 2’s , 5’s and 10’s and even tried to count in 3’s as a challenge.

Year two children have worked really hard this week exploring temperature. They started the week with an experiment in class finding and comparing the temperature of the warm classroom and ice cold things. They have worked hard to measure temperature and also learn how to read a thermometer.

We looked at how similar and different these continents are to Cornwall. On Wednesday we created Japanese Cherry tree blossom pictures and today we created some aboriginal dot art.

We listened to a different version of a story called The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, we thought this was great and got us thinking of how we could make our own version. We thought of lots of different ideas and drew our story maps ready to start planning our own traditional stories next week with new characters and settings. 4
