Another busy week in Year 1
Friday 10th March | 1 comment
In our literacy and science lessons we have continued investigating our senses and started to write our own information books. We even had a visit from ‘Olivia Opener’ and she helped us think of some great sentence starters to use in our books. The children thought of “Did you know…?” “Incredibly” “It is hard to believe”. In phonics we have revised ee, ea, e-e and ey. We have also done a practise phonic test and we will discuss your child’s result at parents evening. We have all read non-fiction texts in our guided reading sessions.
We also looked at art work by the artist Esref Armagan who is blind. The children were amazed that he had created his pieces of art without sight. They were all challenged to create a piece of art wearing a blindfold and only using their sense of touch – this got quite messy!!
In maths this week we have continued with multiplication and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We used bar models to help solve multiplication calculations. Our ‘dojo’ job this week was to write what they know about multiplication – we were impressed with what the children knew!
In our PSHE this half term we are covering the unit ‘What goes into and on bodies?’ This week we looked about a variety of substances and sorted them into safe, sometimes safe and never safe.
1GJ were lucky to have another expert visit them today. Emily’s mum came to talk to them about bones. The children learnt lots of facts about the bones in their hands and some very grown up words, including clavicle, radius and ulna. Thank you very much for coming to talk to the class.
Have a great weekend.
