The Year 1s have been writing sentences independently about the sun, Earth, astronauts and rockets. We have focused on using capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and to check it makes sense.
Snowy Owls have been learning about light and dark in science this week. They used a torch on a globe to show how we get day and night. They have also worked together to make a handprint poppy wreath for Remembrance and been writing space sentences.
Snowy Owls are looking at how the seasons change through the year and are looking at the changes in trees at the moment – which are glorious at the moment!

This week in Year 1 we have been learning about speech bubbles. We created speech bubbles for the vegetables in Supertato! We also spent time with our new learning partners in Barn Owls and have been thinking about number ordering in maths.
Tawny Owls have also been doing more extended pieces of writing about Supertato.
Part of the busy week that Snowy Owls had was a visit from Emma the Dental Nurse and Derek the Dinosaur. We were told all about the importance of brushing our teeth regularly and how to look after our teeth properly with advice on what to eat and drink!
Snowy Owls have been experimenting with different mechanisms within children’s books in preparation to design and make our own cards with mechanisms or moving features. This week we had a go at making cards with a sliding mechanism and got creative with different themes.
The Year 2 children have started to sew their puppets in the Tawny Teaching Area and everyone had a go at using playdough to make the organs within our bodies in science.
Year 1 have been learning how to count on using number lines and counters. They have also been thinking about sentence structures in literacy.
