It has been a full and active week in O1 as we begin to count down towards Christmas.
In our maths sessions we began to look at measuring and comparing items. The children enjoyed using the rulers for the first time and writing down the various measurements of items. They then looked at which items were the longest and shortest and noted it down. It was great to see the children begin to understand how to measure and was even nicer when they started measuring items and each other during their CIL time.
During literacy we started the week by learning and comparing holidays from the past to now. The children did well in sorting photos then writing what they saw and knew about holidays. It was interesting to read how much the children know and how well they can compare things. They enjoyed the stories and books related to the subject and developed their understanding well.
This week the school was very lucky to have a visit from a policeman Inspector Nobel, who came and gave a very interesting assembly about life in the force. He then went to all the classrooms and showed specialist equipment and uniform that the children got to try on. This was followed by some excellent questioning from O1 who were engaged and fascinated by what he had to say. After his visit the children took to writing all about what they had learnt and the things they enjoyed most. It was good to see all the fab learning that had gone on and the children produced some really good work.
Finally, show and tell has been very successful and the children have taken to speaking in front of their friends in nice clear voices. This week we have had some terrific art and artefacts as well as an amazing power point about a trip up a mountain! Well done O1, you have shown a lot of effort and produced some really work, keep it up.
