Autumn 2023

We have had a wonderful few weeks back at school. We have enjoyed lots of learning opportunities, from learning about toys through time in History to reading and writing about the book Farmer Duck in our writing lessons. Here are some pictures of us enjoying our learning in Bysouth Class! 

In Forest School, we have been mixing blackberries and painting with them! We found it very fascinating.

We have been learning about place value in maths. Year 1’s have been finding different ways of counting to be more efficient in their maths, for example, counting in groups of two’s.

In History, we have been sorting new toys and describing their properties. We have shown our history knowledge very well. We have also been comparing old toys with new toys and explaining how we know they are new and old. We are looking forward to continuing our learning on toys through time!

Summer 2023

In Bysouth Class, we have got up to lots of interesting and exciting learning. 

In Forest School, we have been busy learning about nature, learning different knots, using tools, making shelters, cooking and much more. Recently, we have been investigating how to make dirty water clean by using natural materials and objects around us.

In History, we have been busy learning about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. We have found out many interesting facts about the two nurses and spent time comparing the two.
In PE, we have been learning about fitness and how to keep our bodies and minds healthy. We have also been learning about how to run for longer periods of time. We all took part in a cross country event!

Spring 2023

We have got up to some incredible learning in Bysouth Class. 

We have been getting up to all sorts of learning in our maths lessons. We have been busy learning about number lines. We have learned how to add and subtract using a number line. Children in Year Two, have also been learning about money.

We enjoyed our Sleeping Beauty themed week. We made beds for Sleeping Beauty which linked to our Science learning on everyday materials. We also wrote some beautiful stories linked to Sleeping Beauty. We also made a fruit salad for Sleeping Beauty for when she would wake up.

We have been making good use of our learning partners to look at a piece of learning and discuss what went well and what we need to work on. Here are some pictures of us working well with our learning partners.

We have been busy learning all about mechanisms in our D&T lessons. We learned how to make our own levers and sliders.

Autumn 2022

We love learning outside in Bysouth Class! The children were given a Halloween maths challenge. Around our school field, there were a number of maths challenges. The children used their knowledge of number bonds and known facts to solve the challenges!

We have been learning all about The Great Fire of London in Bysouth Class! We loved sharing our sticky knowledge with the firefighters that came to our school. We found it very interesting to learn how putting out fires has changed since 1666.

Year One’s have been working really hard on developing their Phonics and spelling knowledge. They have also been concentrating really well on forming their letters correctly using lead in and lead outs.

In Maths, we have been working hard on developing our understanding of place value. We have been busy comparing numbers using language such as greater than, less than and equal to.

In Forest School, we made our own journey sticks. We went on a journey around the field and gathered all sorts of natural objects we saw along the way. At the end of our Forest School session, we were all able to talk about what our journey sticks represented. Some of us made our sticks into all sorts of different things, including a woodpecker!
