Poetry and multiplication in Year 1!

Friday 11th July | 13 comments

Our week started with the super medieval banquet – we hope you all enjoyed it. The children had fun making the potage. Did it taste nice? Please see separate post for photographs of the busy day.

In literacy we have been focusing on poetry. The children have been busy writing acrostic poems about Castles and the World Cup. Some children have also written alliterations based on castles and they thought of some great ideas – “jolly jesters juggling” “pukey potage” “pretty princesses prancing proudly”

We have revisited multiplication in numeracy and most children are becoming more confident at solving problems by sharing and multiplying. The children used counters and drawings to help them answer the calculations. Can your child quickly work out 3 lots of 2 or 5 x 3?

In PE we have been practising for Sports Day – bouncing on the space hoppers is everyone’s favourite race! Your child should have brought home a letter explaining what is happening and which team they are in for sports day. Please can you make sure that your child has appropriate footwear for outdoor PE – some children had to run in their sandals last week!

The children are excited about the World Cup final. In 1D Dylan has Germany and James has Argentina. In 1GJ Miles has Germany and Ollie has Argentina.  Who will win?

Have a great weekend – only 7 days left until we break up!

    It has certainly been a very busy couple of weeks and I hope you have all enjoyed yourselves as much as Ruby has.

    Hope everyone is excited about their last 7 days in year 1! Rhys stayed at his grandma and grandads on Sunday and he was allowed to watch the beginning of the World Cup final. Rhys wanted Argentina to win! Rhys has really enjoyed his castles topic and we will be going to visit Edingburgh castle in the summer holidays. I hope he can remember all his castle facts to teach his mum, dad and sisters x
