Year 1

Week 3- W/B 17.1.22  

We started the week with a lovely Tu B’shvat seder and enjoyed singing some Tu B’shvat songs. Some of us tried new fruit that we hadn’t eaten before.  

On Wednesday we went in a mobile Planetarium. We learnt about how planets orbit the sun and we were able to see the planets up close. A highlight was seeing the surface of Mars and the surface of the earth. 

 

English – We were so excited to receive a letter from Bob, The man on the Moon!  

We learnt about the features of a letter, we thought about questions that we want to ask him and we wrote him a letter back. Next week we will learn more about space and learn how to write a non-chronological report (a text which isn't written in time order, normally non-fiction text which gives information on a particular subject or event).  

Maths –This week our topic was measurements, we compared length, height, mass and ‎speed and used comparative language such as longer/ shorter, heavier/ lighter, slower/faster/quicker. 

Next week we will focus on sequencing events in chronological order. We will recap days of the week, look at a weekly timetable and identify when events happen.  We will use the vocabulary of chronology, for example: before, after, later, earlier, yesterday and tomorrow. 

Science - This week in science we compared animals within the same animal group.‎

In History we continued looking at homes from the past.‎

JS- We recalled Noah’s Ark story. We discussed the reason G-d asked Noah to build an Ark and the meaning of the rainbow in the sky. G-d put the rainbow in the sky as the sign of his promise that he would never again destroy the earth with flood.

Week 2- 10.9.21

We have had a lovely week in Year 1. All of the children are settling in beautifully to the routine in Year 1.

Maths – This week we learnt about ordinal numbers (first, second, third….). Next week we will learn how to subitise - this means seeing a number of items and knowing exactly how many there are without counting them!

English- we learnt about capital letters. We know that sentences start with a capital letter. We also learnt that names and places start with a capital letter. Next week we will read the book Oliver’s vegetables and we will be focusing on full stops and writing a list.

JS- we learnt about Yom Kippur and wrote sorry cards to our friends and family.

Ivrit- we learnt the first two letters in the Hebrew Alphabet (Aleph א- makes no sound and the letter Bet בּ- makes the sound b).

We had our first Art lesson in the studio, we learnt about Keith Haring and the children made drawings inspired by Keith Haring’s art.

Buddy time- Today we have met our new buddies from Year 6. We played together and got to know them. Every Friday afternoon we will have a chance to spend time with our Year 6 buddies and we are very excited!

 

Additional information-

PE – will be every Wednesday afternoon with Mr Kane. PE kits should be worn on Wednesdays.

Art- We have now started to use our new Art and Design studio. Please could you send with your child a clear named apron / old shirt that they can keep at school.

Reading books- Please keep in bag every day. These will come home from the beginning of October.

Home learning- will commence from October.

 

We wish you all a wonderful weekend, Shabbat Shalom and Gmar Chatimah Tovah.
