This week we have been doing some foundation subjects as well as completing lots of transition activities to help the children get ready for Year 2.
We started the week by writing a letter to our new teacher to tell them all about us. We then made a year book to celebrate our achievements of the year. We made some bunting for our new classroom and wrote on it our goals for next year. We also completed some activities in our new class mixes, we did a team challenge and worked really hard together as a new class. On the last day of term we had a very special assembly and then we watched the teachers play netball against Year 6 on the field.

Article 24 (health and health services) Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment and education on health and well-being so that children can stay healthy. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
In Health and Wellbeing this half term we learnt lots of new things about how to keep our bodies healthy. This is part of our physical strand of Health and Wellbeing.
Knowledge we have gained:
We have learnt about the importance of personal hygiene and what foods are healthy for us to eat. We have also learnt about the importance of looking after our teeth and of doing regular exercise.
Skills we have learnt and used:
We have learnt how to wash our hands appropriately and how to wash properly when in the bath or the shower. We have learnt how to brush our teeth to make sure that they stay healthy. We have also learnt how to choose healthy food when given the choice and what we can do to increase our daily exercise.
Prisha: ‘I am going to drink lots of water and eat yogurt instead of chocolate’.
Pennie : ‘After school I always brush my teeth so they are nice and clean and I have nice breath’.
Rishaan: ‘Exercise always makes me feel better, that is why i run around on the playground!’
Key Vocabulary that we have learned and used: personal hygiene, wash, clean, soap, healthy, bath, healthy, unhealthy, protein, carbohydrate, fruits, vegetables, teeth, brush, exercise.
In Topic this week we started off by writing our weekend news focusing on the use of pronouns. The children did really well and especially loved writing about their weekend as the weather was so lovely and the world cup win for England. We then got a message from Mr Green who needed some help designing some trellis for some flowers. We designed this and then made an example for him using pencils and masking tape. He was very grateful for our help! We then performed poetry by heart and had a go at writing our very own class poem. Finally, we reviewed all we had learnt this half-term in our Topic Blooming Marvellous and made the title pages for our folders.
In Maths we started the week by continuing to measure and compare mass. The children really enjoyed weighing different items using the balances and predicting what they thought would be heavier and lighter. We then moved on and started learning about capacity. We learnt about the language – full, half full, quarter full, empty etc. We then thought about how we could could measure capacity in non-standard measures e.g. that bottle holds 5 cups of water. We then moved onto comparing the capacity of different containers and putting them in order from smallest capacity to largest capacity.
