This week we went on an Autumn walk to see what landmarks we could find in our local area. We then looked at the pictures we had taken on our walk in order to create a simple map. Together we discussed what needed to be included. Here are some pictures of us working as a team to create our map ensuring the landmarks were in the correct place. We finished our map by labelling it.

During our topic lessons we have been learning about where in the world we might find a bear. We have learnt brown bears live in Canada and Polar bears live in the Arctic! We used a world map to find these countries and our own. We then looked at different kind of maps and discussed what maps tell us. Here we are exploring different kinds of maps such as world, Europe, United Kingdom and even a map of our school!

This week Year 1 children have been practicing to place numbers on a number track correctly and recalling one more and one less than a given number. The children chose 3 number cards each and completed the activity you can see in the pictures. Throughout the week we practiced recognising one more and one less using objects and pictures so here we are applying what we have learnt

In Maths we have been practicing 1-1 correspondence. Year One children were also practicing to write the number they had made in words on whiteboards. We have been singing lots of songs to help us remember the order for numbers. Keep up the super Maths explorers.

Today we found a paw print on our board with a message, it was a clue! We followed the clues around our school grounds and we found the bear!

Today we received a special message... it was from a BEAR! The message read:
I saw your homework challenge to create a rocket so I thought I’d have a go at making my own. My rocket was amazing except I crashed and landed somewhere near your school and now I am lost! I came by, but no one was here… sorry about leaving my muddy footprints. Please can you help me? If you find me, you can keep me as your class bear.
Hope to see you soon,
We are so excited! But what can we do to find him? We talked with our partners about ideas to find the bear and we came up with an amazing one! We have decided we are all going to make a poster to help find the bear. We looked at some examples of posters and what is important to include on them.

Today we discovered something very strange in our outdoor area... footprints! Who are they from? What has been in our outdoor area?
The children in Explorers came up with ideas such as a bear, a Gruffalo or a dinosaur. I wonder what it could be...
Welcome back Explorers!
Miss. Callaghan, Mrs. Wales and Mrs. Adams hope you all had a fun filled summer. It has been lovely to see all of your smiley faces in the last couple of days and we are so pleased at how well you have settled. We are all looking forward to the fun things we have planned for you this year - there are lots of new things to learn!
Our first topic this half term will be 'Paws, Claws and a Snout’. We will be learning all about bears and a special fantasy fiction character who has sharp claws... can you guess who? Some examples of texts we are reading this half-term are 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen and 'Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy. We will be using the texts to support us with writing labels and sentences containing adjectives! We are also going to be learning about our local community, therefore, we will be going on an Autumn Walk to see what local landmarks are around us.
Make sure you keep checking our page regularly as we will be keeping you up to date about what we are up to in school
