Week Ending 16th October.
This week in our maths lessons we have continued to look at money. In our English lessons we have started to look at non fiction texts and the different features. We had a lovely forest school session where we made our own feeling sticks, using different colour wool to demonstrate all different feelings. Another great week, well done Jupiter class!
Week ending 9th October 2020.
We have had another great week in Jupiter class. In our Maths lessons we have been working with money, and have been calculating totals using a variety of different coins. In English we spent Monday to Thursday planning our own story based off an illustration in the book ‘Once Upon an Ordinary School Day’ and ended the week by writing our stories using all our amazing adjectives and adverbs.
Have a lovely weekend!
Week ending 2nd October 2020.
We have had a great week in Jupiter class! We celebrated European Day of Languages on Monday, we focused on Italian. We learnt how to say hello and we learnt all about the yummy Italian food. As well as Italian, we had our French lesson where we learnt how to ask someone's name and say 'my name is...'.
We also celebrated International Poetry day on Thursday. We have learnt the poem 'The Sparrow Hawk' together as a class, we have been practising our actions alongside the poem, which we will be performing on Tuesday within class.
In our Maths lessons we have been focusing on partitioning and ordering numbers, and within our English lessons we have focused on descriptive writing, specifically focused on the story 'Once Upon an Ordinary School Day'.
This week we completed assessments for reading, SPAG, writing and maths. These assessments allow us to identify areas of learning that need to be a focus within our lessons. We continued to look at Here We Are within our PSHE lessons. We also have looked at our Victorian topic in more depth. We have focused on the differences between rich and poor. We also designed our own peg dolls with a focus on what materials the Victorians would have been able to use for toys.
Week ending 11th September 2020.
We have had such a lovely start to the term in Jupiter class! We have spent lots of time talking about being back at school, and how we are feeling. We have also been fabulous artists this week and we have created self portraits which will be displayed in our cloakroom.
Its been so lovely to finally meet you all, and thank you for being so welcoming :)
Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday!
We are all looking forward to all children returning to school for the Autumn Term. We will be starting the term with a whole school project, all children will complete work based on 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
In Jupiter class Miss Smith will be the class teacher with Mrs Tickle remaining as the class TA and Mrs Wiseman will be joining Jupiter in the afternoons as an additional TA.
For this term, Jupiter has been set up differently (following government guidelines). Expectations and procedures will be shared with the children on the first day of school.
We understand that some learners have not been in school for quite some time, so we are approaching the first few weeks slightly differently to a 'normal' return to school.
We hope that you have all had a restful break over the summer and are looking forward to returning to learning within your classrooms.
