Here is our summary:

 This year our classes are named after famous sports people and we chose Jessica Ennis-Hill because she never gives up, is proud of what she achieves and is always smiling; three things we aspire to be.

This year in FS1 the teacher is Mrs Churchward and she is supported by two fabulous learning ambassadors, Mrs Rizwan and Miss Tite. Together they will be helping us with our learning to enable us to be GREAT.

We are learning to be independent in our thinking and our play. We are learning to respect our environment and the people in it. We are learning to be a good friend. We are learning that it is ok to make mistakes and have another go.

We are looking forward to welcoming lots of new children and their families into FS1 this year.

Here is our summary:

Our class names are based on inspirational sports people .Our class name is Jonny Brownlee, a triathlete who has competed and won medals in triathlons all over the world with his brother Alistair Brownlee. The brothers became even more inspirational when an exhausted Jonny Brownlee nearly collapsed and was helped over the finish line by his brother Alistair. This was the foundation for choosing our class name as we believe in supporting and caring for each other on our journey through Wyndham together. We are one of three FS2 classes the others being Alistair Brownlee and Greg Rutherford. We are so excited to embrace our learning together and go through this exciting experience on our way to success! Our environments indoor and outdoor are geared to Creating the best opportunities for the children to help them thrive through challenge and creativity.

Autumn 2
Our learning for this term is based around the book, "How the Grinch stole Christmas" by Dr Seuss. This classic story focuses tells the tale of the Grinch who despises Christmas due to the events of his childhood, so seeks to destroy it for all of those in WhoVille. The support and friendship of young Cindy-Lou Who, amidst all of the negativity towards the Grinch results in him learning the true meaning of Christmas, thus warming his cold heart and fostering a love of the holiday again.

 

Our English and Creative Curriculum learning sees us doing a great deal of writing this term. started off by receiving a letter from Mrs Baines-Chambers saying that she had seen a mysterious, green thing that was creeping around the school grounds. We became news reporters and found lots of clues to create a report on who, what, when, where and why, focusing on specific, precise writing. Our reports were fantastic and we helped solve the mystery to find it was the evil, cold-hearted Grinch! We then decided to create Grinch masks and investigated different materials in STEM and Design and Technology. We used the amazing Talk for Writing to write instructions for how this is done, focusing on using the coordinating conjunction 'and' and 2A sentences to write more complex sentences. We then progressed onto writing a diary entry from the perspective of a Who in WhoVille, where we learned a lot about emotive language and writing in the first person and present tense. We also ventured into writing a synopsis of the book in the same rhyming style as Dr Seuss. Here we learned about rhyming and used our summarising reading comprehension skills. We also explored materials further by investigating which material would help Stu Who stay dry in his new WhoVille home, how to melt the Grinch's heart and what would happen if Christmas Spirit was sprinkled on the Grinch's mountain in STEM.

 
Our 'Famous Person' for the term was Sir Bob Geldof – we learned about the amazing charity work he has done and then ourselves took action to perform acts of kindness to people in and out of school, and charity in his image.

In Maths this half term, we have been learning about positional language and have helped order children in a queue. We enjoyed this because we got to take part in games and races and then order ourselves using the correct positional language which helped us to see the order of Who's in the queue to Mount Crumpit. We then built on our knowledge of Number and Place Value by learning our Numbers to 20 and doing the operations of addition and subtraction to these numbers. These skills have built on our prior learning and have seen us exploring concrete, pictorial and abstract concepts and mastery language. We have been applying these skills constantly, be it counting the presents the naughty Grinch pinched, adding up the baubles on Boo Who's tree or subtracting parcels as they get delivered from the Who Post Office.

This term we also worked with Year 2 in our Christmas Production. We decided to take a twist on the traditional Nativity story and instead link our class learning into the story, by teaching Mr Grinch and Jack Skellington from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' by Tim Burton (Year 2's Autumn 2 Book) about the true meaning of Christmas, including the religious element and the customs and traditions that are associated with this celebration. We have had a brilliant term and have loved all things wintry!
