Term 1 - Week 5
Mulberry class have had a lovely week. In English, we have been thinking about the main character in the story, ‘Belle and the Bee Who Spoke’. We have wrote detailed character descriptions, including full stops at the end of sentences. In maths, we have moved on from comparing physical objects and the children have been able to confidently compare numbers using ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’ symbols. In RE we have been learning that sometimes people want to go to special places to pray, like a church. We drew a picture of our church and wrote about how we feel when we are there. We also began to think about the different ways that people pray and what they may pray about.  
Term 1 - Week 4 

Mulberry class have had such a fun week! We wrote instructions on how we made our rockets out of recyclable materials, using plenty of verbs. We also started our new book called ‘The Bee Who Spoke’ and wrote excellent sentences based on an illustration in the story, including full stops. In maths, Charlie the Crocodile came to visit and taught the children about ‘greater than’ and ‘less than’ symbols when comparing objects. The children compared numicon, counters, beanbags, cubes and much more! As part of Enquiry, the children enjoyed continuing their learning about the five senses by participating in different activities which required them to smell, taste, feel, listen and look closely using a magnifying glass.  We have also started learning about the seasons and we went on a hunt for signs of autumn, using a checklist. Whilst we were on our hunt we collected lots of fallen leaves and produced some fantastic Art work. In RE, the children had a go at writing their own Psalms which were very thoughtful and lovely to read.

Term 1 - Week 3 

Mulberry class have been super busy this week! In maths the children have been working out 'one less' than a given a number. They have been trying really hard to present their work neatly in their books, showing how they worked out the question by drawing it pictorially. The children have also been comparing objects using the language ‘less than’ and ‘greater than’. In writing, the children have been learning about bossy verbs and wrote their own sentences including them. As part of Enquiry, the children listened to instructions on how to make a rocket using bottles, scrap paper and other reusable materials. They then had a chance to make their own rocket!  This linked well to our class story ’10 things I can do to help my World’ which suggested making toys out of old boxes. We are looking forward to writing instructions on how to make a toy out of reusable materials next week. During RE we have looked at some Psalms and discussed what they are and what they could mean. We then drew a picture to go with the words in a Psalm.

Term 1 - Week 2
Another productive week for Mulberry class! This week in maths the children have been practising counting 'one more' and writing numbers in numerals and words. They have had lots of opportunities to explore this concept practically and then record their work in books. In writing, the children have enjoyed making interesting ZigZag books about the different ways that they can help the world, including many nouns. Some children wrote about turning the lights off and not leaving the tap on. They have also made fantastic posters explaining the importance of helping the world. In RE, the children are beginning to ask questions about Creation. They have also noticed that there are different images of God in scripture and created a shepherd. As part of our Enquiry 'All About Me' the children have been labelling body parts and learning  about their five senses. 
Term 1 - Week 1
Wow, what a fantastic start to the year! The children have transitioned well from Reception to Year 1 and they have quickly settled in. Miss Gregory and Ms Hopewell have been great at helping with the transition and are always nearby! The children have enjoyed talking to them at break and lunchtimes about the fun learning they have been doing in Year 1. The children have all been really kind and helpful and I am excited for the year ahead. This week in maths the children have been sorting objects, counting objects and counting forwards. They have also been practising their presentation skills in their books. In English, the children have been introduced to the non-fiction story ‘10 Things I can do to Help My World’. They have learnt many ways that they can help the world which is evident in the fantastic sentences they have written. The children also remembered to concentrate on their writing target; to use capital letters at the start of sentences. In RE, we are learning about ‘Creation’ and the children have started to think about what God created. Our Enquiry is called ‘All about me’ and this week the children have painted portraits. It has been a very busy week and Mulberry class are looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
