We are happy to be back at school doing LOTS of busy jobs, seeing our friends and exploring our new classroom!
In Literacy, we have been writing a list of who lives in our house and writing a short sentence about ourselves. We are also matching a caption to a picture and trying very hard to write it down using our phonics to sound out the words and a finger space between our words.
In Maths, we are trying hard to count forwards and we are trying to say a number that is one more and one less than a given number. We have been working out addition and subtraction calculations which has been quite tricky!
We are thinking about our 5 senses in Science and trying to identify which body part is linked to each sense. We will be focusing on one sense per session and exploring each sense in detail.
In Year One, we have been talking about our family and ourselves. We are going to be discussing where we live and drawing a picture of our house. Every child has been given a 'bug buddy' and the children have been busy making a habitat in the construction area for their bug buddy.
We have multi-skills and cricket this term which we are enjoying very much!
Our topic this term is Space! We are exploring the SPACE STATION and pretending to be astronauts!
This term, we are enjoying practising our football skills with Conor! We are also beginning to practise and develop gymnastic skills.
In Literacy, we have been thinking about words that rhyme and writing a rhyming string. We are going to be reading fiction and non-fiction books which are linked to our topic work. We are beginning our sentences with a capital letter, ending our sentence with a full stop, using finger spaces between our words and some friends are trying hard to use a conjunction to link our sentences together using 'and'.
In Maths, we are counting forwards and also backwards. We are working out number bonds to 5 and 10 using different methods, using: numicon, part whole method and arrays. We are trying very hard to make sure our numbers are the right way around and formed correctly.
We have been learning fun and interesting facts about Neil Armstrong and we are going to be finding out why Helen Sharman is a significant person.
Year One children are going to be learning about nocturnal animals and we are going to be exploring Winter and how the seasons have changed.
We are discussing how to be a kind friend, friendship and fairness.
We are ALL looking forward to beginning our Christmas crafts!!
