Welcome to Cuckoo Class!Cuckoo by Edmund Fellowes

A warm welcome to our class page! In Cuckoo class there is a mixture of children from both Year 1 and Year 2! 

This page is intended to give you an insight in to all the fantastic things we will be doing, so please check back here often to see some of our recent activities. We will also use this page for any important updates so please check regularly! 

Year One Common Exception Words - the children should be able to spell these words by the end of the year.

These actions can be used alongside the sounds to support children when reading/writing at home.

Autumn Term 2!

 

Our topic this term is Fire!

We've been working on our football skills this term! We have been controlling our dribbling and practicing our 'big kicks''

We had a theatre company come to school and we watched Robin Hood!

This is our biscuitology experiment! We were scientists and we're trying to find out which biscuit is best for dunking! We found out that the plain was best because it has lest super in so desert melt as quickly!

We have learned the sequence of the Great fire of London and can now order the events correctly!

We have been writing our own versions of 'How the tortoise got his shell' and retold them to our peers with actions

We have had a visit from a fire woman! She taught us about all the jobs they do and how to stay safe if there was a fire.

We also used the natural objects to make a photo frame and artwork to hang

We used natural objects from our walk to make homes for our animals, thinking about what is important for their habitat.

The whole school went for a walk to explore the outdoors and we buddied up with Goldfinch to find things to use in our afternoon activities.

The Life Education bus came to visit and we learned all about how to stay healthy. Gerald the Giraffe taught us about the main food groups and what they do to our bodies

Our new Science topic is materials! We started by identifying different materials in our environment

We started the term off talking about Firework night and made our own out of different materials.

WOW MOMENT!

Our Quest Focus Week!

Please find attached a letter outlining the activities we will be getting up to next week for our Quest focus week.

We had a great afternoon making cereal and cereal packaging with our parents!

In PE we have been learning the skills for lots of different sports

We had a dentist come to visit us and she told us all about how to look after our teeth!

After our walk we then made our own maps using human and physical features!

We enjoyed our walk around Bruton where we found a lot of human and physical features

We used lots of pasta to work out our addition calculations this week!

We have been writing instructions on how to make porridge this week! First, we learned how to do it ourselves so we knew what to tell Goldilocks. Hopefully she will stop stealing the Bears now!

This term we have started pair reading with Eagle class! We do this once a week and is a great opportunity to hear others read and practice our own reading, sharing favourite books and looking and new ones.

We pretended to be hungry caterpillars to choose the largest or smallest pile!

We have been learning to dance to the rhythm in music and dance.

We've been using hungry crocodiles to find which number is more or less!

We've been learning that numbers can be represented in different ways!

We acted out our new story - Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Today we found a crime scene! Someone had come in to our play area and spilt porridge everywhere! They broke a small chair and all the beds were not made! Who was it!?

To start our topic of Marvellous Me, we all painted ourselves in a self portrait!
