This week has been a busy one for Moonbeams!
We stared the week by creating some of our own Rangoli patterns in R.E.
In Maths, we have been learning how to double and half. We learnt that each side must be equal. We practised by feeding equal amounts of peas to Obb and Bob.
In Phonics, we became human flashcards. We had to listen very carefully to see if we were needed to make the phase 4 word.
To help with our wellbeing, we learnt a new pose in our weekly yoga time. We centred ourselves like a tree and took deep breaths.

NO PENS DAY
Year 1 have had brilliant day learning without pens.
We started the day with some Music, we had lots of fun learning our Christmas songs. We then moved onto Maths. Moonbeams really enjoyed making different numbers between 10 – 20. We had to use our imaginations to record our findings without pens. Lots of children used a tens frame and some pumpkins!
Next, we practised our speaking and listening skills. We had great fun listening to Kayden explain how he made his 'tornado machine.'
In Literacy, we realised that our stars had gone missing. We used our appropriate ‘star catching equipment’ to find them. We looked under the scratchy log, up in the green trees and we had to walk through the squelchy mud!
Year 1 had a fantastic day without pens!
This week we have been very busy!
In English we have been learning how to write a sentence. We have been trying to remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We have also been learning about how to use a conjunction in our sentence.
In French we have been learning how to say colours. We did this by playing a fun game with the French
In Science we have been learning about parts of the body and what we use them for. Here are some of our ideas:
'I can use my feet to jump!'
'I can use my hips to hula hoop!'
'I can use my hands and fingers to roll play dough!'
In choosing time we have been matching Capital letters to lower case letters.
It has been really fun to see who can match the letters the fastest!
