Week Beginning 24th September
On Wednesday we celebrated European Languages Day. The children had to locate various flags on the school field and find out which country they belonged to.
We have been investigating number bonds that make 10. We used Numicon and then Cuisenaire to help us make these number bonds.
During Year 1 we are going to try to learn our number bonds. Once we can recall the number bonds we are able to use them to solve other number problems.
Week Beginning 17th September
This week we started our DT unit on kites. We looked at various kites from a range of countries. We then designed either a stunt kite or a Malaysian kite.
We have started our topic on superheroes.
Week beginning 10th September
In our geography and English sessions this week we have been thinking about human and physical features of seaside towns.
First Week Back
The children have settled really well into Year 1.
They were keen to write about their holidays in their new English books. You will be able to view their work later in the term during parents evening.
We have started our art unit on Pointillism. The children enjoyed using the wooden end of a paint brush to make small dots on their seaside picture.
