Today in Geography we learned how to read a compass. We then made our own. We had lots of fun doing this. We learned an acronym to help us remember North East South and West - Never Eat Slimy Worms! We enjoyed making up new acronyms too.
W/B 6th Jan -
Happy New Year!
This week the children have been learning about how to use non-fiction books. We enjoyed going to the library to find lots of different non-fiction books. In maths we have been learning about height, weight, speed and length. Next week we will focus on days of the week and months of the year.
The children have had a wonderful week learning about Succot. They loved working with their year 6 buddy to create the most amazing Sukkah's! We even had a special lunch in the school Sukkah where we could see all of our decorations that we made for it.
In English this week, we have read 'Malala's Magical Pencil'. We found it sad that Malala wasn't allowed to go to school which made us think how lucky we are. We enjoyed thinking about our own magical pencils and what we would draw if we had one. We may even make our own magical pencils soon!
We are continuing to learn new games to play in the playground and we are talking lots about how to be a kind friend in the playground too.
Next week is Anti-Bullying week! Please talk to your child about what 'bullying' is and how we can stop it from happening in school.
English - We have been learning about diversity and in particular about Mary Seacole. We enjoyed finding out facts about her and learning her story.
Maths - We have continued to build on our knowledge of finding parts and whole. We are beginning to understand addition and some of us are challenging ourselves to find lots of different ways to make one number e.g. 3+3=6, 2+4=6, 6+0=6, 5+1=6. We have also been practicing our ruler skills. Please continue to practice this skill at home.
Art - We have have been learning the skill of sketching. We all followed instructions to sketch a family using different strokes of the pencil, then our year 6 buddies helped us to colour in. Some of the sketches were better than Miss Bakers!
This week in English we have continued to practise capital letters and full stops. The children have written some fantastic sentences. We have also been learning how to sit nicely and comfortably at a table and we use this chant to help us: '1,2, 3, 4 are my feet on the floor? 5,6,7,8 am I sitting nice and straight?
In Maths we have learnt how to find the 'parts' and 'whole'. The 'whole' is the whole number e.g. 7. The 'parts' are the two numbers that make up that number e.g. 3 and 4. We will continue to practise this next week.
During daily exercise we have been playing lots of new games. Our favourites are 'You're Fired!' and 'The Pirate Ship'.
The children's first week of home learning was great! We look forward to seeing next weeks!!
9th September 2019
English - This week we are going to learn about capital letters and how to form them correctly. We know that sentences start with a capital letter. Soon we will learn that names and places start with a capital letter also.
Maths - We will learn how to subitise - this means seeing a number of items and knowing exactly how many there are without counting them!
Computing - We will learn how to log in and log out. We will also talk lots about keeping safe when we are online.
Friendship - We are having lots of time to talk about what being a good friend means. We know that if we don't like something someone is doing we can say "Stop I don't like it".
Welcome to Year 1
4th September 2019
We have had a fabulous start to the year.
English - We have written some class rules. We know that class rules keep us safe and happy.
Maths - We have been counting and recognising numbers to 20. We also counted raisins and then we got to eat them!
