A great start back Paddington Class!

On Tuesday, Year 1 went to Woburn Safari Park. The children behaved brilliantly and made all of the staff extremely proud.

New theme: This term, we are learning all about Australia with our new theme ‘Let’s go backpacking’. In class, we are reading the story ‘Wombat Goes Walkabout’.

PE: PE days will be on a Monday and Wednesday. Please bring PE kits in as soon as possible if you haven’t already done so.

Reading & Key Skills: We will continue to award dojo points for handing in key skills each week and for children who have read at least 3 times a week.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Nativity information, lyrics and songs…

 

Here are the Nativity songs that we have begun to learn this week. It would be great if you could practise at home! Maybe you could teach your family the actions too?

Updated: Shepherd’s Dance and On the road to Bethlehem have been reuploaded – they are quite slow to start but they work on my laptop – please let me know if they still don’t work! (Miss Gedney)

Silent Night

Silent night, Holy night

All is calm, all is bright

Round young virgin mother and child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Sleep in heavenly peace.

On the road to Bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its Christmas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Lying in the straw

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its christnas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Knock upon his door

Knock Knock Knock!

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to bethlehem

To bethlehem, to bethlehem

On the road to bethlehem,

Come and join us there

Come and join us there, good to see you. Hope to see you there…!

Little Donkey

Little donkey, little donkey

On the dusty road

Got to keep on plodding onwards

With your precious load.

Been a long time, little donkey

Through the winter’s night

Don’t give up now, little donkey

Bethlehem’s in sight.

Chorus Ring out those bells tonight Bethlehem, Bethlehem Follow that star tonight Bethlehem, Bethlehem

Little donkey, little donkey

Had a heavy day

Little donkey

Carry Mary, safely on her way.

Mary had a baby

Mary had a baby, oh lord

Mary had a baby oh my lord

Mary had a baby oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train done gone.

Laid him in a manger, oh lord.

Laid him in a manger oh my lord,

Laid him in a manger oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train done gone.

Shepherds came to see him, oh lord

Shepherds came to see him oh my lord,

Shepherds came to see him oh lord,

The people keep a coming and the train done gone.

Named him baby jesus, oh lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh my lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train done gone.

Shepherds Dance

Shepherds, tell me

Did you see what I saw?

I saw angels

I can’t be so sure!

Shepherds, tell me

Did you hear what I heard?

I heard good news,

News for all the world!

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

Shepherds, tell me

Why are you in a trance?

Come on! Wake up!

On your feet and dance.

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

INSTRUMENTAL DANCE

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

Glad tidings we bring,

To you and your kin,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

(Repeat)

We are so excited to perform our Nativity, even more so now we have learnt nearly all the songs!

Many thanks for your support!

Who’s in the forest?

Paddington Class are thoroughly enjoying our new theme ‘Who’s in the forest?’.

So far, we have looked at our first story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.

Tomorrow, we will start to look at the characters in our story.

Can you remember the characters names?

Can you think of any words to describe what the character looks like?

You will be awarded one dojo point for commenting :)

Maths in Paddington Class

Each child was provided with a pot of counters. The children were told that they needed to find out how many counters were in their pot. The children opened their pot of counters, when all of a sudden, the teacher shouted ‘STOP!’. She informed them that they were not allowed to count how many counters were in their pots. The children were shocked by this news and wondered how they would ever find out how many were in their if they were not allowed to count.

As a class, we discussed how we could solve this problem. We thought about what we use in Maths to help us and some children suggested the use of Numicon. Using Numicon, the children organised the counters into the same structure of the Numicon shape. The children were then able to say how many counters there were, without ever having counted them. Then all children swapped their pots with a peer and continued to find out how many counters were in each pot.
