Our Autumn Day - Tuesday 16th October 2018

We are finishing off our week with lots of creative topic activities. The children have worked very hard this half term and we hope they all have a good break. 

Friday 5th October 2018



It has been another busy week in R/1MB!  We have been having lots of fun with Wallace and Gromit in literacy and learning all about how to use exclamation marks in our writing! Wallace and Gromit made us laugh so much when Wallace's invention all goes wrong.


We have been looking at patterns all around us in Art.  Year 1 enjoyed sketching different patterns that they could find around the school grounds.


Reception were out and about this week looking for signs of Autumn.  We collected Autumn leaves and talked about the different colours that we could see.  The children were very good at giving reasons for the leaves changing colour and falling off the trees.  We also hunted for conkers and acorns and enjoyed learning about animals that store food for the Winter.  Well done reception!


In Maths, we have been using crocodile signs to show greater than and less than when looking at numbers.  Watch out...the crocodile will always eat the biggest number!


Have a lovely weekend everyone!

What we have been learning this week - R1MB

Friday 21st September 2018


What a busy week we have had in R/1MB!  We have continued to work on partitioning 2 digit numbers with the year 1 children and they have enjoyed using lots of different resources to support them in their learning.  Reception have been learning to be 'careful counters' and they have been sequencing numbers to 10 and 20!


The Smartest Giant in Town has come to Penwortham!  The children in year one have been using nouns and adjectives in their writing!  Wow!  Reception have been working on their fine motor skills by doing lots of glitter writing and funky fingers activities.


Please don't forget to work on your sound books at home Reception. You can do it!


We have been looking at our local area and the children loved using google earth and digi map to explore West End Park.  Then they drew a map of the park and added their own labels.


What a super week!  Well done everyone!

Our week in R1MB 

This week we have been exploring the story of 'The Smartest Giant in Town' by Julie Donaldson. The children have been matching labels to the giant's clothes and the Year 1 children have been writing super sentences. 

In our maths work, everybody has been working on their counting skills. Year 1 have also been learning to partition numbers to 20 and beyond, using the part whole model. Photos have been posted above. 


In our creative areas of learning, Reception and Year 1 have been listening and creating music and they have been creating maps of where they live. Some of the Reception children loved creating maps and incorporated dinosaurs and emergency vehicles.
