Please spare one moment to leave this Year 1 class a quick comment telling them who and where you are. Once the pupils understand that they have a global audience for their writing, they will use their blog from outside of school to write about things that interest them. Any comment left will be checked before being approved and the pupils will be encouraged to reply later .
Well done to our final merit winners. The children won their merits for their excellent story writing and their attitude towards learning. Well done!
Last Friday we had a fabulous said experience day. We had dokey rides, ice cream, Punch and Judy, games, sand activities, water activities and pebble painting. We had such a fantastic time and made lots of Year 1 memories!
We really enjoyed our visit to the art exhibition to see art work from throughout the school!!
Today, we went outside to look closely at the leaves around our school. We used a leaf identification sheet to try and investigate which trees we must have on our grounds. The children chose a leaf to measure and compare.
This week we are having a science week which is all about plants and flowers. Today we were ‘plant explorers’ and we went outside to take photos of the plants which we could find around our school. We then identified the names of these plants.
This week we have been learning all about money. It would be really helpful if you could help your child to make amounts using different coins and to also work out change. We have learnt Chang as ‘coin paid with – cost of item = change’. Your child could then use coins to make the correct change.
Following on from our road safety sessions this week , please find worksheets to supplement our learning.
Today, we used our fantastic story plans to orally tell our stories to each other. The children discussed how to use expression by changing the rhythm, pitch and volume of their voices.
For homework this week, the children were asked to get creative in the kitchen and to get involved with the weighing of ingredients. Thank you for all of your lovely photos which we looked at during Show and Tell. Here are some of our photos:
On Tuesday, we had a visit from Kylie. She works at the PDSA and helps to care for animals. We learnt lots of information all about how to care for animals and what animals get up to at the vets.
