This week in geography we went on a learning walk around Eckington. Despite the rain, we had a great time spotting some of the important and interesting buildings around Eckington. A big thank you to the grown-ups who braved the rain to come with us!

This term in science we are learning about plants. This week we have been planting some seeds and bulbs in class, so that we can watch them grow.

In music this week we used the xylophones to keep the pulse of the song we are learning.

This week in maths, we have been comparing numbers to 10 and 20. On Monday we sorted numbers according to whether they were more or less than a target number.

In English for the next few weeks we are learning through the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. This week we have been describing the characters of Jack and the giant.

Welcome back to school! The children have had a fantastic week and have settled so well into our new classroom and the year 1 routine. I have been so impressed with them this week. Well done Giraffe Class!

This week in PSHE we read the story by our spotlight author, Anthony Browne called ‘Silly Billy’. It is about a little boy who worries. His grandma gives him a worry doll to tell all his worries too. Then the worry doll can do all the worrying and the little boy can sleep in peace. We talked about worries and then we all made our own worry dolls to help us if we are ever feeling worried.

In English time we have been writing postcards to our class mascot Daisy, after she sent us a postcard from her holidays.
