Otter Class

News 21st September

This week Otters have been trying to find their lost toys!.  They went on a hunt to see where they were hiding, following signs that led the way.  They wrote some independent stories called 'Lost in Northill School'.  In science they labelled all the materials in the classroom - see if they can do the same at home!  In P.E. on a Friday Otters are doing a combination of dance and yoga.

This week Otters have been reading 'Lost in the Toy Museum' and sequencing the main events.  They have also enjoyed being able to see and play with some replica Victorian toys and games such as Pick up Sticks and Jacks.  In numeracy they have been learning to represent numbers with Numicon, dienes and number lines and made some great posters displaying all the ways a number could be shown.      Well done Otters.


On Tuesday 18th September the children may bring a small toy for their music lesson with Mrs Thorn.



Otter Class are settling well into their new class and routine.  They have been very proud to show their Summer Holiday scrapbooks, thank you parents for all your support.  This week we have been busy reading and writing numbers and counting out everything from cubes to acorns!  We have also discussed and agreed class rules and thought about what we'd like to try and achieve this half term.

There was a lovely calm atmosphere today in school, as the children worked collaboratively to create displays reflecting the values in the stories they listened to. One group studied Noah’s Ark, another- Jonah and the third group-The Selfish Giant.

It was fantastic to see different age groups working together.

We have been learning about shapes and finding different ways of sorting them.

Please remember there will be a spelling test tomorrow, Wednesday. Spelling books were sent home last Friday with the spellings for the half term.

Otter class had an interesting morning learning all about the weather. A big thank you to Mr. Woolley for sharing his expertise, we loved making clouds!
