A tasty week in Year 1
Friday 10th October | 13 comments
What a tasty week we have had! On Monday we followed instructions to make a delicious fruit smoothie and on Wednesday we made our vegetable soup using produce from our school farm. It was lovely to see so many of you there – did you enjoy your soup? On Thursday the children wrote their own set of instructions about how to make soup. They learnt about time words and bossy verbs such as first, next, put, stir, pour.
In maths we have had lots of fun learning our number bonds to 10. These are the numbers that pair up together to make 10 e.g. 9+1, 5 + 5, 6 + 4. The children used shaving foam blobs, locked padlocks with keys and went on a number bond trail around the classroom. Learning the number bonds is a key skill in Year 1 and each week we will have a number bond of the week. Number bond of the week this week is 5 + 5 = 10 and 10 – 5 = 5.
In our science lesson we focussed on why thunder and lightning happens. The children are loving being scientists and doing all our mini weather investigations. Ask them how they made thunder this week? We will be posting a weather blog when we have done all our investigations.
Thank you for all your support with learning logs, spellings and reading at home. We have seen some super work and the children have been very proud sharing their work with the class. Thank you also to everyone who has left a comment on our blog posts – the children love reading them.
Remember it is our trip to the nature reserve next Wednesday. Hopefully the weather will be dry but the children need sensible footwear or Wellington boots as they will be outside exploring the woods the whole time they are there. They will be having a school dinner before or after their trip.
Have a super weekend.
