Magpies 2018-19

Off on our adventures!

Friday 14th September

What a week! Magpies class have been so busy learning lots of new things! In topic this week we have started off on our around the world tour! We have enjoyed looking at our school environment and drew some fantastic maps of the classroom.

In Numeracy it has been tricky as we have continued our place value learning. We have been getting use to our tens and ones and even started to do some reasoning with them. Some great perseverance in our lessons!

In Literacy a great week as we have continued to learn our story map about turtle island. We enjoyed writing some expanded noun phrases and also making conjunction chains with some longer sentences on.

Our Star of the Week this week is Olivia. Olivia has had a fantastic week and has been a real role model to our class. A real Superstar!

Look out for next week as we will be travelling all the way to France! A great week Magpies well done!

A huge welcome to our new Magpies!

Friday 7th September

Welcome back to Magpies! What a fantastic first week we have had. Our new topic is Earth Explorers and we have had a great time in Magpies going on the plane to our adventures around the world! We have enjoyed lots of creative art work, painting, collaging and designing. We have been writing about our Summer Holidays and already impressed Mrs Sims with lots of brilliant learning.

The Magpies have all settled in really well and we are excited for a great year ahead!

Bonjour from Magpies Class!

Friday 21st September

Amazing! Magpies class have had a super week and every member has worked their socks off!

In Literacy we have finished writing all about our setting description. Some amazing adjectives and sentences using conjunctions. In Numeracy, we have continued to reason with our tens and ones. It is always a challenge to explain your ideas but Magpies tried really hard at this!

In Topic we have thoroughly enjoyed visiting France. We enjoyed learning some French words, creating postcards home and even building our own Eiffel Tower!

Our Star of the Week this week is Owen. Owen always tries his hardest in his learning and is a brilliant role model in our class. Owen takes great pride in his work and completes every task to the best of his ability! Well done Owen!

Have a great rest over the weekend Magpies! Next week we're off to China!
