Another fantastic week in Year 1!
Friday 17th October | 6 comments
The children all had great fun exploring 2D and 3D shapes in our maths lessons. They created 2D shape robots and used an app called ‘Geoboards’ on the iPads to make different shapes.
The children learnt the names of the shapes and began to use the correct vocabulary to describe them including corners, sides, vertices. Maybe your child could be a shape detective at home and see how many shapes they can find? We have still been doing lots of counting and practising forming our numbers and ‘Number bond of the week’ is 6 + 4 = 10, 4 + 6 = 10.
In literacy the children have been learning how to write a recount using time words such as first, next, after that. They all wrote a recount based in their visit to the nature reserve. All the children have a personal literacy target and they all tried hard to remember their target whilst writing. Some children are focusing on sentence structure, some are adding more detail to their writing and others need to remember to use finger spaces and form their letters correctly. You will be able to see their super writing and discuss their targets at parents evening next week.
Thank you to all the parents who accompanied us on our trip to Denso Nature Reserve. Please see our separate posts for photographs of our super visit. Click here to visit the website for the Nature Reserve or if you would like some more information.
Next Tuesday we are going to the theatre – remember we will be returning to school after 3.30pm. Next week we are creating leaf collages in the style of Andy Goldsworthy – so if you go for a walk in the woods over the weekend please can you collect lots of leaves.
Have a super weekend.
