P1 - Miss Neely
The fun and learning has continued in P1N this term with our two new topics, Chocolate and Christmas!
During ABL the children have loved exploring Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory by creating their own invention room, rescuing Augustus Gloop from the pipes and inventing their own sweets. They have been busy creating ice lollies on Purple Mash. The Hot Chocolate Café has opened and we've had queues of customers around the classroom waiting for their hot chocolates with marshmallows and cream.
The children have loved being scientists this term and have been busy predicting and reporting their results for lots of different experiments. They particularly enjoyed finding out what happened when gummy bears were left in water. We've also been exploring how chocolate melts and what happens to gingerbread men when we leave them in puddles of milk, water, coke and vinegar.
We have been working so hard in P1N over the recent weeks getting ready for Christmas. The children have been busy learning a special song for all of their grown ups and producing some beautiful Christmas artwork. We can't wait for you to see their hard work in the video. We have also been learning to sign 'We wish you a Merry Christmas'. Ask your child to show you their signing at home! Their will be lots more happening over the next few weeks with Santa's workshop opening. Here the children will be designing and building toys as Santa's little elves, wrapping presents and exploring how to write letters and envelopes for the post box.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the grown ups for their hard work in supporting the start of reading in P1N. The children are working so hard on their reading, sounding out and key words and all the support at home is fantastic. They have been chatting about their word boxes in class and they can't wait to get their new books each time we read together.
I could not be prouder of how hard they have all worked this term.
