Today, The Caterpillars and Pegasus joined together for our Shine event. We created some wonderful animals using different skills, decoupage, rubbing and sewing.
Capitalising Caterpillars (Y1/2 2018-19)
The Caterpillars and Narwhals are working collaboratively to create internet safety videos. We will be sharing these in a special assembly on Friday.
The Caterpillars and Pegasus have had a wonderful afternoon full of activities to celebrate Chinese New Year. We made money envelopes, Chinese drums, paper dragons, lanterns and painted fireworks. We all read the story behind Chinese New Year and will be using this as a focus in our maths lessons (ordinal numbers). The Caterpillars will also be answering questions about this in our reading session on Friday.
We have had an amazing day reading. We have been on the reading train, reading cafe and listened to different adults read. We have also found our new favourite book, Wonkey Donkey which we highly recommend 😀
We have been learning our number bonds to 100. We matched the different snowballs to their number bond to 100.
The Caterpillars have been working very hard trying to learn the three times table. Here’s the clip we have watched in class.
As part of anti-bullying fortnight The Caterpillars have been taking part in class discussions about bullying and creating posters about friendship, we are looking forward to showcasing our work next Friday in our class display. We hope you can all make it! To kickstart the fortnight we wore odd socks to show that we are all different yet all the same.
The Caterpillars have been learning about Diwali. We made some beautiful Diva lamps to light the way home for Sita.
To celebrate the work we have put into our Gruffalo topic, we made gruffalo crumble. We had real Gruffalo apple that were kindly supplied by Zoe, our parent helper. We used real knives to peel and chop our apples. I’m looking forward to eating the crumble. I might even share with the children 😊
The caterpillars have been doing some very tricky maths, they have shown great resilience and perseverance while trying to partition numbers into different groups of tens and ones. We have used different resources to support our learning. Keep it up Caterpillars 😀
