Yellow

Welcome to Yellow Class

Our teachers are Mrs Crawshaw (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Axton (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday).  We also have Mrs McCarthy, Mrs Michael and Mrs Horwood helping us in our classroom.   We are really looking forward to a year full of fun and learning.

 

Our topic this term is Home and Away.  We will start by reading the story of Handa's Surprise and learning all about Africa.  We will learn about different cultures including music, dance and foods.  

 

 

 

 

We have been using some maths games to help secure our maths skills.   These games can be found at  www.ictgames.com if your child would like to play them at home. The children have particularly enjoyed playing Counting Caterpillar, Save the Whale and Fact Fighter.  

In PE we have been developing our balancing and control. We all managed to hold our balances very still.

In science we are learning about plants. We looked carefully at daffodils and identified the different parts. We then labelled the parts of the daffodil.

We have have been learning to sing the Swahili Jambo song.

We had so much fun in our African Dance and Drumming Workshop. A big thank you to our PTFA for funding this fantastic morning. We learnt how traditional African drums are played and enjoyed making lots of noise. We also learnt how to play the drums quietly!

A wonderful sound!

We really enjoyed sharing our fairy stories with Red Class.

We have had a very special visitor in Yellow Class.

We loved the Pantomine - Cinderella. It was very funny.

We have written and illustrated our own fairy tale books.

We have been making elves and angels ready for Christmas.

Our Christmas preparations have begun with some baking. A big thank you to Mrs McCarthy for helping us to make our own Christmas cakes.

In Mathmatics we have been learning about place value.

We also met some African pigmy hedgehogs.

We have been using different techniques to create beautiful autumn leaves for our Owl Babies wall.

In science we are learning about animals. We have been thinking about keeping our pets healthy and happy. We made our own fantastic pets and thought about what they need.
