Week ending 13th July 2018

We have had a really busy week in Porthcothan. It's amazing how much we have packed in since Monday. 
Our Literacy has focussed on writing sentences with accurate punctuation and spelling. On Monday we used the story of 'The Ugly Duckling' as a stimulus. We thought carefully about our word choices and used fred talk to help us spell. We wrote a recount about Sports Daym using time conjunctions in order to show the passage of time in our writing. 
In Maths, we have been revising number bonds to 20, addition and subtraction strategies and reciting days of the week accurately. We tried hard to form our numbers correctly and we are going to keep practising in order to be ready for Year 2. 
Our RSE lessons have covered how to keep clean and the names of male and female body parts. Mr Duck (our class teddy) helped us during circle time and we confidently spoke to our friends about our thoughts and ideas. We were able to order the lifecycle of a human from infant to elder. 
Sports Day was a huge success and we thoroughly enjoyed showcasing our skills to everyone. Team spirit and support was evident in each event and everyone did their best. Thank you to everyone who came along to watch, we hope you enjoyed our more  'traditional' approach this year. 
                                                 Moving On...
On Friday we had our transition morning with our new teacher Mrs Milsom. We created all about me bunting for our new classroom and got to know all of the things we will be learning next year. In September, our new classroom will be located up in the current EYFS area. We will be developing the outside area and will be asking for support from parents and helpers to make it an amazing space. More information  on this will follow in the next  academic year. 
Mrs Blown will be teaching us on a Monday & Tuesday and Mrs Milsom will be teaching us on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. Mrs Tippett will be our class teaching assistant.
