Class 1

We are Fox Cubs!

Welcome to Fox Cubs Class Page 2020-21!

I am very excited to be teaching in Reception and I cannot wait for all of the fantastic learning that will be happening this year.

We have some very exciting topics that we will be covering this year where parents and carers will have opportunities to come into school and help out on school trips.

Please don’t forget to check our class page each week for our blog and photographs of our work!

This week we have been thinking about our enquiry question ‘Why do Squirrels Hide their Nuts?’

“They put acorns in a hole because they save them to eat.” Noah S

“They dig in the ground and put the acorns in. They save them for when they need to eat them.” Alex O

“They hibernate all winter and don’t come back ‘til spring.” Alex J

In Maths we have been learning about the numbers 2 and 3.

The Phonics Fairy sent us 3 sounds this week they are: t, p, i.

We also thought about the question ‘why do people wear poppies at this time of year?’

We watched the BBC short animated film ‘Poppies’.

“There was a big battle with lots of fighting but when it stopped the poppies grew in the field.’’ -Alex J

‘’It’s for remembrance.’’ Rose

Some of the children made poppy pictures in different ways.

It is Children in Need today! We learnt that it is a charity and the little yellow bear is called Pudsey!

We have been thinking about the things we like to do that make us feel happy.

“Stroking my rabbits makes me happy.” Percy

“Dancing makes me happy!” Coco

“Playing with Numberblocks.” Zayn

What a fantastic week we have had after our half term break!

On Monday we had our first school photos taken by a photographer, we looked very smart!

Our topic this term is ‘Why do Squirrels Hide their Nuts?’ It is all about Autumn and the seasonal changes we see in our environment and the effect it has on nature. In the story two squirrels are arguing over the last pine nuts of the season, at the end of the story they realised it was better to work together.

We talked about what makes a good friend during circle time.

Something exciting happened this week! We noticed a trail of glitter from our quiet room door and it led us to a bright blue bag! We discovered it belonged to the Phonics Fairy and she had delivered our first sound, it was the ‘s’ sound and a book called ‘My Pet Snake’. The Phonics Fairy taught us how to make the pure sound and how to write it!

In Maths we have been learning about the number 1 and the different ways 1 can be represented. We have been looking for the number 1 in our environment.

We also looked at ‘Anno’s Counting Book.’
