Welcome to 1SB!
Hello, and welcome to our class page. We are really looking forward to an exciting year of learning ahead of us. Please check this page regularly to see what your children have been up to in class and find out more about the topics that we are enjoying each term. Please feel free to come and discuss any queries or concerns with us - our door is always open!
All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read, complete some homework, go to clubs after school or out of school and it is recorded in their log. There are ideas in our learning leaflets on things you can do with your child at home to support their learning . Just make a note in their Home Learning/Reading Record logbook so we can reward all their hard work. These merits are then translated into 'Dollars' to spend in the Homework Hut each half term. The more 'Dollars' you earn the better the items you can buy!
15 merits = Bronze
20 merits = Silver
25 merits = Gold
We are aiming to achieve a full house of Gold Dollars EVERY TERM this year, we can do it but only with your support at home
Soup for the Wolf!
We had a letter from the wolf asking for a soup recipe. The wolf wants to make some vegetable soup to keep him warm in the Winter. We chose our own vegetables and tested out the recipe by making the soup. It was yummy! We wrote out the recipe for the wolf.
One day at the beginning of this half term we found footprints in our classroom. Wefollowed them into the forest. There we found a duck, a frog and a squirrel. Where had they come from? Why were they in our forest? Later we found a book 'Footprints in the Snow' and our learning adventure began!
Thank you for collecting for Children in Need Day. We made Pudsey sparkle!
This half term our topic is called Winter Wonderland. We will be learning about cold regions in the world (the Arctic and Antarctic) - where they are and which animals live there.
Our focus book for English is 'Footprints in the Snow' by Mei Matsuoka.
This half term our new topic is all about dinosaurs. We will be reading the story ‘Happy Hatchday’ by Rob Biddulph and learning about dinosaurs using a variety of non-fiction texts.
Can you find out some interesting facts about dinosaurs? How many dinosaurs can you name?
On Monday we found two strange eggs with a note saying 'Please look after these eggs'. We made a nest to keep the eggs safe and decided to say kind words to them so whatever was inside felt safe and happy. It worked because on Tuesday the eggs hatched! Guess what was inside - 2 baby dinosaurs! We have decided to find out about dinosaurs this half term and our new topic will be called 'Roar!
In 1SB we use Signalong to accompany our verbal communication. When using signalong you speak and use the sign at the same time. All the children in the class know key signs and it is part of our everyday routine. If you would like to use sign to support communication at home here are some videos of a few signs we use in school. Please let us know if you would like to learn any other signs that would be useful to use with your child at home. We will add video clips of more signs as the school year progresses and upon request.
We hope you find signalong a useful tool!
