A sandwich and a lighthouse for our lighthouse keeper!

We have had a brilliant week in Literacy as we have been writing instructions. We have been learning about ordering instructions, bossy verbs, time connectives and adverbs such as ‘carefully’ and ‘slowly.’ We wrote our instructions after we each planned, designed and made a delicious sandwich. The children remembered capital letters and full stops and wrote very neatly. We then made wonderful lighthouses with an actual glowing light and again the children wrote instructions about how to construct them. Some very impressive writing came from some very impressive teamwork, design technology and science. Well done Year One! Can you child tell you how to make a lighthouse?

Making lighthouses…

1GJ have created a display of all their great work about the lighthouse keeper and his lunch. It even has lots of pesky seagulls on it!

In maths this week we have had lots of fun exploring money. We’ve played money games, had a fruit shop, did some coin rubbings and ordered coins and notes. Some children moved on to adding money and giving change. Can your child practise using money this weekend? Using real money in real situations in the best way to help your child learn.

In our geography lessons we have begun to learn about the continents and oceans of the world.  We discussed where children had been on holidays and what the weather was like. We then looked at the 7 continents of the world. How many continents can your child remember? Can you help your child to learn the continents and oceans of the world?

Today it was the S factor grand final. The children representing Year One were super stars. Well done to you both as you were very confident and brave to perform with such a huge audience. We are all extremely proud of you. Well done to Florence who was the overall winner in Key Stage One. Enjoy your day out! Click here to see photos from this brilliant event.

Just a couple of reminders:

On Wednesday 5th July the children in Year 1 will be having a talk from the RNLI. This is linked to our geography and history topic work. The RNLI is a very worthwhile charity and we are going to give them a donation from Farsley Farfield. If your child would like to support this charity they can bring a small donation on that day that we can give to the volunteer.

On Thursday 6th July we are having a skipping workshop so please can you ensure your child has their P.E kit in school.

Have a lovely weekend and we will see you at the fantastic school camp over.

The Year One Team.
