Instruction writing, shape detectives, reindeer buns and painting in Year One this week!

Friday 11th December | 2 comments
In literacy we have continued our work on reading and writing instructions. We followed instructions to create a shiny star and the next day we wrote our own set remembering to include lots of bossy verbs such as cut, stick, put. Next we had fun making yummy reindeer buns.
We then wrote a set of instructions about making them independently in our writing achievement books. This was the assessed piece of writing for this half term. Everyone tried really hard and we are pleased with the progress the children are making. Most of them are now remembering to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in their sentences and some children even used conjunctions and adjectives.

We have done lots of practical maths this week focussing on 2D and 3D shapes. The children had fun creating pictures using 2D Christmas parcels. They have also been using an app on the iPads to make shapes. Can your child remember the names of the shapes they have used this week and any of the features e.g sides, corners, faces?

In art we have been learning about painting techniques and have used watercolour paints to create different scenes of each season. These lovely pieces of work will be hanging on your walls soon as they are your new calendar.

We have also been busy practising our show ‘Christmas Number 1’. We hope that the children have been learning the songs and practising the strictly dance at home. http://ffks1.primaryblogger.co.uk/uncategorized/practising-for-our-christmas-performance/

There will be no more learning log or spelling homework until January – but please keep hearing your child read and playing games on Education City and Bug Club.  Click here for some extra maths games and here for some extra literacy games. Also please see previous blog posts for further support.

It’s a busy week next week –
Monday – we are watching the KS2 show and it’s our dress rehearsal
Tuesday – training day (school is closed)
Wednesday – our show at 9.30am
Thursday – our show at 2pm
Friday – party day!!

Have a lovely weekend.
The Year 1 Team
