Deepdale Class

Welcome to Deepdale Class!

Autumn 1

A typical week in Deepdale Class

Each morning starts with a morning activity to help the children settle into the new school day. Each day has a different theme. Maths Monday (based on the maths skills that we are learning and recapping core skills such as number bonds and counting), Text Tuesday (reading activities), Word Wednesday (spellings or word puzzles and problems), Thinking Thursday (these activities encourage children to develop their thinking skills and explain the reasoning behind their thoughts) and Fun Friday (less structured activities that could include things such as developing their colouring skills).

Most mornings we do English, maths and guided reading and afternoons tend to be for subjects such as science, PE, spellings and PSHE.

We currently do indoor PE on a Monday morning and have a session with the sports coaches on a Wednesday afternoon.

On a Monday afternoon we have a 15 minute Spanish session with Mrs Woodward.

On Tuesday afternoon Miss Johnson and Mrs Bedford teach computing, RE and music.

Each day a Star of the Day is chosen and that child gets to take Oleg the class teddy home for the night. On a Thursday a Star of the Week certificate is handed out and parents are invited to assembly on Friday morning.

In maths we have been learning all about the greater than and less than signs.

 

12th September

Today was a very exciting day in Deepdale Class! After play we discovered chairs tipped over, fruit half eaten and a red and orange dragon egg in our fruit basket. The class were extremely excited and were soon busy looking for clues. We have wrapped the egg in a blanket to keep it warm and will wait to see if it hatches.

25th September

Today we watched a musical performance to a story all about a girl moving house with her beloved piano.  It was a wonderful show and we were able to join in.  Afterwards the cast worked with us looking at tempo, dynamics and pitch.

 

 11th October

This week in Deepdale Class we have started our topic on the Great Fire of London. We watched a video that showed us what it was like in London before the fire. We noticed that the streets were very narrow and that the buildings looked quiet tall. Then we used drama to explore what it would have been like to have walked along the streets. We thought that it would be quite loud, smelly and possibly a little bit scary.

Next week we are looking forward to a visit from ArtForms who are coming in to do a Great Fire of London workshop with us.
