Welcome to Class 1B

Mrs Bateman and Mrs Gibbon

What are we learning?


This week we have been looking at Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We read the story and put it on a story mountain.

Then we wrote a description of what Baby Bear found when he came home.

We then did some hot seating and pretended we were Goldilocks and tried to explain to the Bears why she went into their house.

We used our ideas to write a letter of apology to the Bears.

Have a look at some of our fantastic work!

World Book Day

All dressed up as some of our favourite characters!

We have had a fabulous World Book Day dressing up as everything from Dorothy to Charlie, and from Robin Hood to the BFG!

Some Year 6s came to visit us this morning and shared some stories with us. We really enjoyed sharing their books with them. 


In English we have started our new Talk for writing unit. We have been learning to tell the story of Stanley's Stick off by heart.

We have also been learning to use the conjunctions and, but, because and or in our writing.


In maths we have been learning about place value. We have been using the base ten sets to make 2 digit numbers.

We have used the arrow cards to partition 2 digit numbers into tens and ones.

We went shopping at the toy shop to buy our toys! We had to make a price tag for them and then show how we would pay for them using 10p and 1p coins.

We have also been learning to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have used coins to help us do this. This week we went on a treasure hunt around school. We had to find where envelopes of money were hidden and count how much was inside.


As part of our work in Geography we went on a walk in the local area. We thought about the route that we took and followed the route on a street map. We looked for human features on the way.
