Week 3

We have had lots of fun and lots of learning about Autumn this week. Using the school grounds we went on a science walk to look for any of the signs of autumn that we had thought about in our class discussions. Although it's still lovely and sunny we found lots of signs that Autumn has begun! We all enjoyed finding the apples and pears growing alongside berries for birds and we particularly enjoyed finding leaves that were changing colour.

We are continuing our maths learning using place value and have been counting forwards and backwards and also problem solving 1 more and 1 less.

As our first learning experience is about labelling and identifying the Knights armour we have used textease to select a picture and add labels. This helped us with our laptop skills too.

Week 2


Knight Knight everyone! Yes we have started our History themed topic where we are learning about Knights and Castles. We have received a scroll from Lady Red and Lady Yellow who have sent us 10 challenges to show we are ready to become Knights of Ruby class. It has been fun starting them.

In our English learning we have focused on labels and lists this week using the book called Dangerous by Tin Warnes. We loved the story and used the ideas to label our class toys too. It helped us to think about labels when we used the BeeBots to label the knights suit of armour.

Our maths learning is focused on place value to 10. We have ordered and counted out amounts and shown them in different ways. We are also learning the match the number and the number word.

We have also really enjoyed using our DT skills to create a whole class castle using large boxes...especially when we got to go inside it!


Week 1

What a super start to our first week in Ruby class. We have all been exploring around the class to find out where our resources are and very importantly the lovely toys!!

We have made our class rules and signed the contract to say we will keep them.

We have done a lot of assessments this week including 40 spellings and 20 additions plus lots of phonics, sentence writing, counting and sorting and reading. We have particularly enjoyed our new reading area with the comfy cushions and bean bag! Is been very busy and we are looking forward to starting our topic next week.
