Money, Money, Money!
Friday 9th July | No comments yet
This week we are learning all about money! We have been looking at recognising coins from 1p up to £2 and notes from £5 to £50.
It has been interesting to hear what the children think they can buy using coins and notes! Perhaps you could talk to your child about the coins/notes you may have and how much different items might cost. Can you encourage your child to find the coins to pay for something?
We have found counting in 2s, 5s and 10s has helped us calculate how many 2p, 5p and 10p we have in total.
We have been doing coin rubbings and looking at what is similar or different. We have looked at different ways to sort them and also finding the right coins to pay for things at the toy shop.
English and DT
The children were very excited to receive a letter from Mr Grinling the lighthouse keeper! His wife usually makes his lunch but she was going on holiday so he asked for our help. We had fun designing, making and eating our sandwiches. We then wrote a set of instructions about how to make our sandwich. The children used some great bossy verbs in their writing.
Year 1 have gone seagull crazy this week! Lots of the children picked them as their favourite characters in the ‘Lighthouse Keepers Lunch’, so this week we have made pesky seagulls! We have ordered and followed instructions. To check that we had ordered the steps of the instructions correctly we followed them and made our own flocks of seagulls – hope they don’t eat our lunch!
We all enjoyed our PE lesson with the cricket coach. We learnt lots of new skills.
Summer Reading Challenge
This year libraries across England are launching a reading challenge on 10th July. They are teaming up with WWF for a very special nature-themed challenge that will inspire children to stand up for the planet!
To register click on the link below or register at your local library.
We are very excited about our Sports Day on Tuesday 13th July. We have enjoyed practising all the races. Remember your child can come to school in their PE kit on Tuesday. On Sports Day your child will be competing in their hive colour team and need a top of this colour, so either blue, red, green or yellow. Don’t worry if you do not have any clothes of this colour as bibs can be provided by school.
Have a great weekend,
The Year 1 Team
