1LC 2017/18

Welcome to 1LC’s class page!

We have had a wonderful start to this half term.

 We have been busy exploring all the different areas in our new classroom including the creative area, the construction area, the home corner and the reading corner. We have also been enjoying the sunshine in our lovely outdoor area.
In English, this half term we are studying ‘Mr Big’ and will be writing letters to Mr Big to invite him to join our jazz band. We have been experimenting with musical instruments and using drama and props to recreate the story.
We have also looked at ‘Whatever Next’ by Jill Murphy. This has inspired lots of lovely writing such as making lists of things we would like to take with us to the moon and rewriting the story! Next half term in English we will be looking at ‘Supetato’, ‘The Velveteen Rabbit’ and ‘Rumplestiltskin’. 
In Maths, we are looking at ordering numbers and identifying one more or one less than a number. We have also been working on our addition and subtraction!
Our PE slots are Tuesday and Thursday, please make sure you bring your PE kit on these days.
As part of Art Week, we have been creating self portraits using water colours and wax crayons. You will be able to see our art work at the Art Exhibition in October.
Our Topic this term is ‘Our Local Area’. We went for a walk around Dulwich and saw lots of places that were very familiar to us such as North Dulwich Station and Sunray Gardens. It was a lot of fun!
In Science, we will be looking at Seasonal Change this term. We have been busy learning the months of the year and talking about different seasons. We have also made a rain catcher to measure rainfall in our courtyard and have been learning how to read a thermometer to measure changes in temperature.
It was Big Draw week on the last week of this half term. We looked at the theme of ‘Living Lines’ and designed and made a thaumatrope which were very popular as Victorian children’s toys. You can see some pictures of our workshop below!+-
We hope you have a restful half term!
