Our Mathematician has been a subtraction whizz this week. She has been using the objects in the classroom to take some away and find out how many are left. She has been working out how to record her ideas using number sentences.
Our Writer has been working really hard to write her full name and has even been practising it at home. Well done! (There is no photo as it is of her name)
We found out this week who had the best attendance for Autumn term in Onyx class after October half term. Look at all the children who had 100% attendance for November and December…
We also got the good news that Onyx class had the best class Punctuality and Attendance for the whole of Autumn Term in KS1 and Foundation Term. Miss French will be coming soon to tell us what our special well done treat is. We can’t wait to find out!

Its been another great week for Maths in Onyx Class! Look at the amazing Maths our Mathematician of the Week has been doing….
Well done! We’ll be looking for more fabulous maths next week…
This week’s Mathematician of the Week was so engrossed, she didn’t even know Miss Parker was watching her do her amazing maths. She was sat sorting the shapes in the Maths Area talking to herself the whole time about what she was doing. She even talked through putting the shapes in the wrong place then switched them to the correct place herself
(We talked in class about how she was sorting the shapes into colours not ordering them)
Well done! We’ll be looking for lots more Maths next week.
On Friday 7th October Janene came to visit us to talk about Road Safety. It is especially important we think about this as the nights start to get darker but we need to stay safe near the roads all the time.
She talked to us about the Green Cross Code. Can you remember your Green Cross Code?
Remember to Stop, Look, Listen, Think and Hold Hands every time your near the roads.
We learnt about staying safe near Pelican crossings, Puffin crossings and Zebra crossings. Can you remember which one is which? We practised crossing them in our classroom.
Janene showed us what the Lollipop person looks like. They help us to cross the road safely but we need to remember to keep holding our grown ups hand as well and remember to walk.
We also learnt about staying safe in the car and that we had to always sit on our special car seat and also put our seat belt on every time. The car seat makes sure that our seat belt is in the correct place for us even though we are little.
Finally, we said goodbye to Spike the Hedgehog and his family and said a big thank you to Janene for coming to talk to us and help keep us safe.
What have we been learning?
- To stay safe near the roads.
- To remember our Green Cross Code.
- To keep safe when we are in the car by sitting in our special seats with our seat belts on.
How can you continue the learning at home?
We’ve another superstar for our Mathematician of the Week this week. He can often be found in the Maths Area and is using the resources in increasingly complex ways. You can see here how he was finding the total number of spots on a domino. Not only did he do it, he was also explaining it to his friends so they could.
