Busy bees, dotty division, sneaky seagulls and a super S factor!
Friday 23rd June | 3 comments
A real highlight of the week was our S Factor auditions. Year One have had some super scientists showing off and a variety of scientific experiments and explanations were on display! Thank you to all of the children who participated in our class S Factor and well done! The children performed independently and confidently and we were all very impressed.
Our winners were decided by the whole class and they are Florence and Naoh A. They are going through to the final which will be held on Friday 30th of June. A huge well done to you both.
In Literacy we looked at the story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch.’ The children then planned and wrote their own story about a zookeeper who was also having trouble with pesky animals stealing his lunch. The children thought of some great ideas and enjoyed thinking of how they could solve the problem.
In maths we have been looking at division and the children have been taught how to record division calculations and how to use the symbol ÷. The children enjoyed doing lots of practical division and sharing objects on division mats. We then moved onto word problems. Click here for a fun game. Some children also looked at grouping objects into sets. Click here for a game.
On Wednesday we were lucky enough to listen to an interesting talk about our school bees by Mrs Gilhooley and Mrs Laurie – thank you to you both. We safely got up close to 100s of bees and found out lots of interesting facts. Can your child remember what they learnt?
This week we have also been on a whistle stop tour around the British Isles. The children have enjoyed learning lots of facts about each country. Can they show you on a map where England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are? Can they remember the capital cities and describe the flags?
Have a lovely weekend,
The Year One team.
