Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Christmas has arrived...
As usual Panthers have been very busy completing all their work this week. We have also been busy practising for our performance of Aladdin, as well as making costumes, props and scenery. I hope you're looking forward to watching it on Thursday (10am or 1:30pm). We also started to decorate our classroom to help get us into the Christmas spirit. Take a look at some photos below...
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Panther's school trip!
William Henry Smith School kindly invited us to attend a Rememberance event to celebrate 100 years since WW1. We met soldiers, explored WW1 artefacts and learnt lots about life in WW1. We helped to cook some food for the soldiers (corned beef hash) and talked to some WW1 nurses about how they helped to care for the injured soldiers. We also made some poppy crafts. Some of the children enjoyed a WW1 lunch - vegetable soup, corned beef hash or braised beef and vegetables, followed by parkin with custard or a poppy bun. Panthers class behaved very well all day and their fantastic manners were noticed (and commented on) by lots of different teachers. Take a look at some photos below....
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: World Kindness Day
This week it is World Kindness Day and Anti-bullying week so we thought it was important to do some work around what makes a good friend. We did lots of talking about who our friends are and what we like doing with them. We looked at lots of different pictures and decided whether someone was being a 'good friend' or 'not a good friend'. Some of our class even made a recipe for a good friend. Then we had some time to choose different friends and play with them in class.
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Bikes
This week we have been out using the bikes in the MUGA. We have been focusing on travelling around the MUGA safely (following the arrows, turning corners etc) and using our breaks to help us stop. The class did very good looking so they were able to avoid obstacles such as traffic jams and pedestrians. Those who were feeling brave tried out different bikes without stabilisers! Well done!
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Halloween
Panthers had a great time dressing up today. They enjoyed showing off their wonderful costumes. This morning we played party games and watched some spooky cartoons. This afternoon we had a whole school party in the hall to celebrate our OUSTANDING Ofsted . I hope you all have a fantastic holiday!
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Verbs
This week in Literacy some of Panthers class have been learning about verbs. We have been playing lots of games (verb bingo, verb dominoes and verb snap) and remembered to take turns. We have been getting our friends to guess the verb that we are acting out, suggested different verbs that they do with their hands and feet and put verbs into sentences! Some fantastic work...well done!
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Numeracy
This week we have been doing lots of work on measuring in Numeracy. We have been using the correct vocabulary to describe and compare size, length, height and width. We have used non-standard mesurements (e.g. cubes, paperclips, hands) and standard measurements (mm, cm and m) to measure objects around the classroom. Take a look at all of our fantastic work.
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Week 3
We have had another busy week in Panthers. In Literacy we have been focusing on phonics, letter formation and capital letters. We have been learning all about Time in Numeracy - ordering the days of the week and months of the year, as well as using the clocks. This week in Topic Panthers used lots of different materials (paint, collage, play dough, twigs, felt tips and leaves) to make name art. Take a look at some photos from this week below...
Lauren Cook (lcook) on: Welcome back!
The brand new Panthers class have settled back in fabulously! This week we have been spending lots of time getting to know each other, learning the class rules and exploring the new things in our class and around school. Here are some photos of us accessing the different areas in class, and having fun on the new Roktagon and bikes in our new MUGA.
