Hello Olive Class,
What a term we have had – getting to know each other, settling into routines, challenging ourselves in our learning and always trying our best… you should all be very proud of yourselves! I was really impressed with how hard you worked this week even though it was the last week of term and are all so excited about Christmas.
My star merit this half term went to Kaylan, he always challenges himself and tries to improve every piece of work he does. I am so proud of all his efforts this half term. Well done!
This week we have experimented to see which materials are waterproof, recorded our results, and designed a coat for Santa. We have been working hard on our subtraction in maths. Continuing phase 5 in phonics and even had time for an awesome Christmas disco!
I have put some videos of your amazing Nativity singing onto Seesaw for you to have a watch over the holidays – I hope you enjoy them and they help put you in the festive spirit!
Have an amazing holiday, I can’t wait to see you all in the New Year.
Hello Olive Class
Even though we were learning from home this week you have shown so much resilience and positivity. I have really enjoyed seeing your work and it has really cheered me up after the disappointment of not being able to see you every day. You have all worked really hard – so well done!
In English we have been learning about instructions, we have been continuing to learn about addition in maths. In science you did fantastic experiments, in RE you showed me how much you knew about the Nativity. I have seen you all enjoying your PE with Joe, learning a bit of sign language and working really hard in your phonics.
These are just a few examples that made me smile – and I hope they make you feel proud too.
Well done and have a great weekend.
Hello Olive Class.
Things have started to feel very festive this week (keep helping me spot that mischievous elf and his tricks around our classroom)! The merits this week go to Kali for her amazing work in maths and to Leo for incredible effort in phonics. Well done – we are so proud of you both!
We have started working on our phase 5 sounds in phonics, written our own books about toys in English and have been doing addition in maths. You have worked so hard. In science this half term we have been looking at materials and their properties. This week we completed a practical activity in which we sorted objects by their properties – and even came up with some criteria of our own!
Well done for another fantastic week Olive Class. Have a great weekend – and keep practising your songs for the Nativity.
Hello Olive Class.
Congratulations on another wonderful week. You have worked so hard.
This weeks merits go to Maxwell for his fantastic use of conjunctions in English and Bareera for mastering her number bonds to 10… We are so proud of you!
This week we have been using exclamation marks and conjunctions to write AMAZING conclusions in English. In maths we have been working on finding all our number bonds to 10 using a range of resources. In art this week we built on our knowledge of abstract art and line and created an amazing collaborative seascape.
We have also been getting into the Christmas spirit by starting to learn our songs for the Nativity. Scroll down this page to find the music to have sing along for your homework this week.
Have a great weekend – well done Olive Class.
Here are all the songs and lyrics for our nativity. Some songs everyone will sing together and some songs will just be sung by Year 1 or Year 2.

Well done Olive Class – you are making such fantastic progress this half term.
My merits this week were all about progress – Adrian received one for his fantastic work in English. His writing has improved so much and I am so proud. My other merit went to Leah this week. She has been working very hard in her phonics and is much more confident in using her sounds. Well done both of you for trying your best!
We have been working on our non fiction writing in English, looking at part whole models and fact families in maths. In topic we have created maps in case aliens land in our school! In art we have been looking at abstract compositions and line – I have been so impressed with your creativity. In science we took part in an experiment where we tested which material was really best to build the three little pigs houses out of!
Congratulations for another fantastic week!
Wow! What a fantastic week Olive Class!
Our merit awards this week went to Joseph for amazing writing in English and to Christian for fantastic collaboration and creativity in art. Well done!
This week in collective worship we have been remembering all the heroes who died in the war, as well as the heroes helping us now. We created poppies to help us remember those who died in WW1.
This week we have been using our skills to write sentences about toys in English. We have also started looking at adding and subtraction in Maths – this week we looked at creating part, part, whole models using ourselves and partitioning in different ways. In art we have been looking at abstract artists and working on creating our own amazing compositions. In topic we looked at our local area while in science we have explored everyday materials in the classroom.
Thank you for all of your hard work. Have a lovely weekend!
Welcome back Olive Class!
I hope you had a lovely half term – I loved watching all of the amazing friendship videos with you on seesaw this week, it looks like you were all really kind and caring.
We had a great first week back – and our merits this week go to Grace and Faizan. Well done you have worked very hard. Faizan got his merit for trying hard in phonics and participating lots in class. Grace was awarded her merit for making great progress in maths – we are very proud!
This week in English we have started exploring our new book ‘Toys around the World’ by Joanna Brundle. We looked at many different toys in class to find out lots of facts to use in our non-fiction writing.
In maths we have been learning about ordering object and numbers – and counting using ordinal numbers. In RE we have been learning about different religions and cultures through ‘hats of faith’. In science we have started learning about materials, I was blown away by how well you described their properties.
Well done Olive Class and have a lovely weekend!
