Welcome to Comets!
World Book Day
Well done Comets, you all looked fabulous in your book character costumes.
As part of World Book Day, we came to school in our pyjamas and we had a parent workshop. We read lots of bedtime stories.
Bedtime Stories Workshop
Thank you to the parents who attended our workshop. It was an outstanding turn out and we enjoyed reading stories with our parents. A special thank you to the dads who came to to read!
What a lovely day in Comets, as we spent the whole day reading in our pyjamas. We read by the table, under the tables, on the whiteboard and in the playground.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Take a look at the caterpillar that we made.
We decided to cook pizza in our cooking session today because it is National Pizza Day tomorrow. We watched videos on how to make pizza and then we made our own healthy pizza. We chose our own toppings to go on our pizza. We had lots of choices such as cheese, mushrooms and peppers. We had lots of fun making healthy pizzas!
Well done to all children for receiving an award!
We have been busy Mathematicians today!
National Story Week
As part of the special week, we have been re-telling the story of Peace At Last in our Literacy lessons. We then made a whole class book, by re-writing the story in our own words and illustrating the book.

Christmas Jumper Day
Well done Comets! You came dressed in your lovely Christmas jumpers and home clothes, ready for the party this afternoon! You all looked lovely!
We have been busy learning all about why Christians celebrate Christmas. We learnt that baby Jesus was born, that is why we celebrate Christmas. We give gifts to our family and friends, because gifts were given to baby Jesus when baby Jesus was born. It is good to celebrate every religion and know the importance of every religion! We dressed up as characters from the nativity story.
What has the Elf done today! He has been very naughty again! Can you see the Elf!
School Christmas Dinner
We had a lovely Christmas dinner today. We even pulled some Christmas crackers!

We had a special delivery in our class this morning. It was a parcel, left by Father Christmas. He left us the Elf and told us to keep an eye on him as he can be naughty! Stay tuned to see if the Elf gets up to any mischief!

Our Maths activity, for our continuous provision had a focus on numicon. We used numicon to do some maths problem solving. We had to arrange the numicon pieces and select the correct numicon shapes to fit the correct super hero towers.
Science In Early Years
The tuff spot is all ready and set up for next weeks continuous provision! Our tuff spot will now be based around science activities, to meet the understanding of the world scale points. Our focus for next week is colour mixing, to explore what happens when we mix colours. We will use primary colours to make secondary colours! Very useful especially if we run out of a specific coloured paint so that wr can make our own colour paint. Have a look at the activity set up ready for next week! Thank you yo Mrs Roberts, our science lead for ordering us some super equipment to make science engaging!
In Comets, we have been busy cooking porridge and it tasted delicious! We talked about how we are going to cook the porridge. We added 1 full cup of porridge oats and 1 and a half full cup of milk. We linked our cooking with our Maths as we have been learning about capacity in Maths. We stirred the porridge with a wooden spoon. Then we saw steam coming out of the pan. We said that steam was coming out of the pan because the porridge was hot. We then chose our toppings, which were a choice between strawberries and chocolate sprinkles. We also added sugar. We talked about the texture of the porridge.
Ingredients To Make Porridge
As we are going to cook porridge in our Fridays cooking session, we decided to write a shopping list of the ingredients that we would need. We wrote a whole class shopping list ready for Mrs Iqbal, so that Mrs Iqbal could buy the ingredients. We talked about what type of porridge we would like to make and the toppings that we can add on top of our porridge!
Every morning, we come in to our classroom, with lots of activities set up to help us with our fine motor, Maths and Literacy. Our morning linked takes place from 8.45 up until 9.00, every morning. Therefore it is very important that we come to school on time, every day.
Maths Problem Solving Day
We had so much fun taking part in the problem solving activities set up in the hall, organised by Mrs Shumaila. We solved lots of problems such as filling a large triangle with some different shapes such as a trapezium. We had to make a large square with lots of T shapes and made a wriggly worm and caterpillar by matching the colored spots on the hexagons. It was a practical session with lots of learning going on. We then came back in to our classroom where all the areas were set up with a Maths focus!
Innovating Our Story
In our Literacy session, we have been innovating the story by changing the characters. We changed Goldilocks into a cat. How about you? What would you change Goldilocks to?
A Poem By Shirley Hughes

We had a problem in our classroom earlier on in the morning, Our classroom had been messed up, the chairs were broken and there were some pieces of clothing left in the class. We phoned the police to come and investigate. PC Luke and Meghan came to our school and helped us find out who committed the crime. It was Goldilocks! We collected the evidence and put evidence in a sealed bag. We even collected the finger prints.
In our Maths lesson we have been searching for shapes in our school environment. Take a look to see if you can name the shapes that we found! We talked about the properties of the shapes too!
