Following this terms collective worship theme we have chosen the word 'courage' this week so that the children can gain a clearer understanding of what it means.
We spoke with the children about times when they might of been courageous and brave and they told us some lovely stories.
We are excited to learn more about courage in collective worship assemblies with Mrs Esplin.
favourite fruit. We had to guess what Miss Rodwell's favourite fruit was and then we used lots of adjectives to describe it - thinking about our 5 senses.
We have been working on writing super sentences, thinking about using capital letters and full stops, finger spaces, cursive handwriting and writing neatly along the lines.
We have been learning all about numbers this week. The children have been practising reading and matching number names to their numerals. We have been practising number formation of 3's and 5's.The children have also given some amazing reasoning answers when finding the missing number. 1JR have really impressed Miss Rodwell with their amazing maths skills, showing lots of energy and enthusiasm.
1JR mission statement
This week we have had lots of fun getting to know our teachers and classroom. We have explored the superhero reading corner, made tall towers with multilink and also wowed Miss Rodwell with showing 5 at all times. This week we have also completed Maths, phonics and reading assessments.
We are also very happy to announce that 1JR got their first class merit on the first day back - impressing Mrs Bells with our super lining up and walking sensibly throughout school. Well done.
Word of the week: Admirable
This week Miss Rodwell chose 'Admirable' as the word of the week as 1JR have been showing an admirable attitude towards learning and throughout school. In circle time we discussed what this word means and the children came up with some amazing answers. We spoke about our heroes and why we admire them. We finished circle time by thinking about the saying 'look up to'. We agreed that this what we say when we view someone with respect and admiration.
