Welcome to Purple Class

Food, Glorious Food!
Is this healthy or not?
A big thank you to all the children who have taken photographs of themselves eating their favourite foods. We will be displaying these in the cloakroom area - do pop in and have a look. There is still time to bring in your photograph if you have not yet done so!
We have started our exciting Year 1 writing journey looking at the classic picture book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We have used this text to help us to remember the days of the week and begin to learn to spell these. we have enjoyed memorising the different foods that the caterpillar ate each day.
We have also been learning about the countries of the UK and their capital cities. To coincide with our topic, we have also tasted some traditional foods from each country.
We had great fun tasting and came up with some fantastic adjectives to describe what we could taste, smell, feel and see.
The children have had a great start back, and have been really busy in maths. In Week 1 we read Eric Carl's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' in which the children had to order correctly the days of the week; The children also did some counting and addition. This week we have been focusing on number bonds to 10 (perhaps you could try this at home). We have been using 'Maths of the Day' activities, counters and 10 frames to do lots of practical activities.
In Science this term we are learning about 'animals including humans' and will be looking at different animal groups (mammals, reptiles etc), parts of the human body and how to stay fit and healthy.

We are very excited that our Tennis lessons are being taught by a qualified tennis coach from Appeti Tennis - we look forward to learning some great new skills.
In Netball we are learning all of the skills required to play a successful game including travelling, passing and shooting, as well as teamwork.
