Both Holly and Chestnut Classes are showing the Sandy STARS values each and every day. They shine brightly as they support each other both inside and outside of the classroom, continue to think for themselves more and ask questions about their learning. All children show aspirational attitudes, demonstrate resilience when meeting new learning and are blossoming as self-motivated learner. Miss Bussandri and Miss Brandreth feel extremely proud of all the children and their achievements.
 
Holly and Chestnut classes have continued to use resources in Maths and English to support their learning such as number lines, cubes, tens frames and word mats. The children listened to The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch- a Year One recommended read. They then thought about and discussed how Mr and Mrs Grinling could stop the seagulls from stealing the lighthouse keeper's lunch. Both classes enjoyed making mustard sandwiches and designing and making a seagull proof lunchbox. In P.E Year One have been jumping and skipping. They have focused on travelling in different ways within games and learning about empathy, courage and fairness within sport. Our Science focus has been everyday materials. The children have enjoyed sharing their real life experiences of materials and knowledge and understanding. They have explored properties of materials in the classroom and have been acquiring new vocabulary to describe their findings.
