A busy week in Year One
Friday 25th September | 3 comments
In literacy we have been reading the story ‘Nothing’ by Mick Inkpen. He is a little bear who gets left in attic and doesn’t know his name or who his family is. It’s a lovely book and the children enjoyed listening to it. They then drew a picture of their family and tried hard to label it. They also wrote about their own special toy using simple sentences.
In history we looked at their baby photographs and talked about how they had changed. They thought about what they needed when they were a baby and what they need now. They had fun cutting and sticking using catalogues. We also introduced the concept of a time line. Using cubes to represent each year we placed different aged people on a time line. They had fun trying to guess how many cubes the teachers would need!!
In maths we have been doing lots of practical tasks. We have been using numicon to make numbers and writing them on post it notes. We’ve also been busy looking at number lines and putting numbers in the right place e.g. What is 1 more than 10? What is 2 less than 13? Where would 16 go on a blank number line?
In science we have started to learn about types of trees. Each hive has adopted a tree and we will visit them every month to look for changes. Can your child remember what type of tree they are observing?
The children have all now been allocated books on ‘Bug Club’ this is an online reading resource that they can use at home. In our ICT lesson they all were shown how to use this programme.
Thank you to everyone who has returned their Denso Nature Reserve reply slip.
Have a lovely weekend.
