Swans Class 2021/22
Welcome to Swans Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Miss. Lumsden (Class Teacher), Miss Kent (Class Teaching Assistant) and Mrs. Borrey (Learning Support Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have.
We are looking forward to getting to know each other and having a great year playing, learning and growing together. On this page we will be sharing our learning journey. Throughout the year we will be sharing snapshots of our learning through photographs.
This will provide you with a fun way to talk to your child about their learning and share in their experiences.
This week we have had great fun reading the story “Mr Wolf’s Pancakes”. We read the story during our Literacy lesson and then designed our own pancakes, wrote our own lists of ingredients we need. We then made our own pancakes from scratch. Here are some photos of some of us eating our pancakes.
This week we have been learning all about one more and one less and finding one more and less to numbers up to 10. We have played lots of games with our friends and used lots of resources to practice this.
This week we have started to plant lots of seeds in preparation to plant up our vegetable patch and gardens in our outside area. We have planted: carrots, peas, watermelon, courgette, peppers, cabbage, sunflowers and corn on the cob. We look forward to these growing and being able to try some of our own grown produce.
This week we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We learnt about the similarities and differences in how families decorate their homes and the foods they eat. We had a go at chopping, cooking and then eating our own vegetable stir-fry noodles.
As part of our learning on Goldilocks and the Three Bears we have learning about the design technique of Papier-mâché. We created our own bowl shapes and painted them making our own individual choice on paint colours.
Autumn 1 and 2
In PE we are learning about finding a space and moving around in within it. We have also been working on controlling a ball using our hands and feet when moving around and working with a partner.
We are learning how to play number games using the numbers to 5. We are learning how to take turns and count forwards and backwards.
