What have we done in Year 1 this week?
Friday 19th September | 1 comment
This week in literacy the children have all enjoyed learning about ‘Nothing’ the poor little cat who got left in an attic. They all had fun showing and talking about their special soft toys. The children all drew and labelled a picture of the people who are in their family and they also drew super pictures of their special toy and wrote some sentences about them. They tried hard to form all the letters correctly and many children remembered to use finger spaces between each word.
In numeracy we have been practising our counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. They have also been doing various number tasks using numicon. The children also enjoyed making number tracks and putting missing numbers onto the track. They had lots of fun with the independent tasks this week – especially counting how many physical activities their partner could do in our outside area. They were hoola hooping and bouncing on space hoppers! Who knew maths could be so much fun
In our curriculum lessons we have been learning about family trees. The children found out what a family tree is and they talked about who is in their family. They then used their photographs to create a 3D family tree – they are on display in our classrooms.
In our weekly science lesson our topic this half term is ‘Weather’. We have been learning about different types of weather and the children have been painting and drawing weather signs for our class weather charts. Over the next few weeks we will be creating a weather forecasting role play area in the 1S classroom and we’re sure the children will have fun presenting the weather! Maybe they could watch a weather forecast on TV to get some ideas for our new area? Their learning log homework is linked to our science lessons and we would like the children to think about what they would like to find out about the weather and any investigations they’d like to do.
Please can you make sure that all your child’s clothes are clearly labelled. We have lots of missing things already!
Remember that next Wednesday, 24th September is a training day and school will be closed to all the children.
Have a super weekend.
