Another busy week in 1GJ
Friday 25th April | No comments yet
It has been another busy week in 1GJ. In literacy we have been learning how to write a letter. The children have all written a letter to their family and they are going to post it during our walk to Farsley. Hopefully you should receive it in the post in the next few days! Thank you to all the parents who have offered to accompany us on this walk.
In numeracy we have had fun looking at the hundred square and filling in the missing numbers. Lots of children chose the harder activity and challenged themselves this week. We have also been learning about place value and the children are becoming more confident talking about the value of each digit. Maybe you could practise this at home – show your child a 2 digit or 3 digit number and can they tell you how many hundreds, tens and units it has?
We have begun our new topic based on geography. The children have really enjoyed looking at maps, globes and atlases and finding places they have visited. In ICT we have been using ‘Google Earth’ on the laptops and iPads. The children have loved this and there was great excitement when they found their own home! Thank you to everyone who has sent in photographs for our map display. It is in our cloakroom so have a look how many places the children in 1GJ have visited – we are a well-travelled class!
Our new school website has been launched and we have our own Year 1 blog – www.farsleyfarfield.org.uk Please have a look and you are all welcome to add comments on our postings; the children will enjoy reading your comments and you can help them to add a comment.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
The 1GJ Team
