A busy two weeks in Year 1
Friday 1st April | 3 comments
Thank you to all of the children (and parents) who took the time and effort to make a decorated egg this Easter. Wow! Such an amazing range of styles, colours and ideas and they all were fantastic! It was a very difficult decision to pick a winner but well done to Alice and Nathan. There was also a surprise entry that some of you may recognise…
The children have all enjoyed their maths lessons during the last two weeks. They have done lots of fun and practical measuring tasks. They have used metre rulers and trundle wheels to measure length with more accuracy, they’ve explored capacity using non standard and standard units, they’ve weighed the mass of various objects and used calendars and vocabulary related to time e.g today, yesterday, a week from now, a month ago. They have used millilitres, metres, centimetres, metres, grams and kilograms. They could practise their measuring at home e.g baking, filling up different cups and jugs, drawing a chalk line and measuring it.
In literacy we have completed our chicken books and also independently written chicken facts for our end of term writing assessment. Most children remembered to use capital letters, full stops, conjunctions and adjectives. We have heard all the children read individually and updated their books on ‘Bug Club’.
In ICT we have created our front and back covers for our chicken books using the laptops.
It was lovely to see so many of you at our ‘Spring Chicken Event’ this morning. We hope you all enjoyed sharing our books, watching the movies and eating the yummy chocolate nests.
These are our wonderful videos – watch out Hollywood!
Thank you for all your support.
Just a little joke from Stan to finish off a brilliant term … “Why did the banana go to the doctors? Because he wasn’t peeling very well!”
Have a lovely holiday – we hope the sun shines.
