Class 2 - Donaldson

Here in year 1, we are really getting stuck into busy, good work. We have been learning about our school and local environment and have been lucky enough to link with a Kindergarten in Calgary, Canada, to teach them about our school and to learn about theirs. We have even made American-style yellow school buses in our Make and Do Workshop!

We have also been learning about seasonal changes, especially changes in Autumn, and have hunted round our school grounds to see what sort of plants are growing, and what is changing as Autumn continues. We will be writing about this in English as part of our unit on Information Texts.

On top of that, we have challenges in our continuous provision to complete each week – a maths, writing, make & do and phonics challenge. These are completed entirely independently by the children through the course of the week.

You would think there would be no time for anything else, but the children still seem to find time to spend in our continuous provision workshops – the Construction Workshop is particularly busy everyday with some excellent model schools being built. We are about to embark on a full-scale town-planning project!

Phew! We will definitely be ready for half term when it comes!!
