Week Ending 18th October 2019
Wow! Nearly the end of the first half term!
We are really beginning to settle into our new classroom, which is amazing! We have the main classroom area with interactive white board, a separate work room for those tasks that require some quiet and concentration and we are lucky enough to have a calm room where we can take some sensory breaks when needed.
We have been very busy this half term, in maths we have focussed on number (counting, ordering and sequencing numbers), shape (identifying 2d shapes and their properties) and repeating patterns (including making Halloween themed repeating garlands (although a little early!).
English has kept us busy too, we started the half term looking at a sensory version of Wind in the Willows. We then moved onto the great story: We're Going on a Bear Hunt and focussed on describing the different settings within the story. We have finished off the half term with a little bit of poetry! Focussing on the poem The Worm That Wouldn't Wiggle by Steve Atwell and trying to identify different rhyming words.
The children have enjoyed computing this half term, we have focussed on using cameras and finished by using them to create a short stop motion animation! Great fun!
All in all a good half term had by everyone and we are looking forward to more exciting activities after the break!
Creswell class's two oldest students have begun their work experience at Goose Park Farm. This week they cleaned chicken feeders and fed the chickens. Last week they cleaned the rabbit cages and cuddled the baby rabbits, called kits.
