English

This week children created their own animal fact file. They chose an animal to write about and wrote about where they live, what they eat and what animal group they belonged to.

Maths

The children completed their addition and subtraction unit this week looking at numbers to 20. They used a number line to complete their addition and subtraction and did a great job!

Topic

The children finished making their animal puppets and they did a fabulous job! The children also had sports day and had so much fun! Sorry if some of the photos are upside down, I don’t know why and I can’t edit them unfortunately.

Week beginning 28th June 2021

English

This week the children have been writing sentences about animals – they have focused on writing factual sentences. The main aim was to write sentences which made sense and which were correctly punctuated using capital letter and full stops. They also practised their reading comprehension. Next week they are going to creating their own animal fact file.

Maths

In Maths this week the children have been looking at addition and subtraction. They started by using concrete resources to break numbers into parts practically before writing number sentences. They then looked at number stories and learnt how to identify whether they needed to do a subtraction or addition to find the new total.

Topic

This week the children have been introduced to sewing! It has been a bit of a mammoth task asking all of the children to sew at the same time but they have all been patient and tried extremely hard. They will be continuing with sewing next week and by the end of the week will be bringing their own animal puppet home!

Here they all are in their lovely colourful clothes to raise money for Cash4Kids! Thank you for all of your contributions.

English

The children wrote their own instructions on how to plant a seed this week. They all did their writing independently and did a super job. They have made great steps of progress since coming back to school this half term and I am mega impressed with them all. We started our week by planting some beans to help remind of the steps for our instructions. The children started by telling me what to day and ensured they used precise language so that I didn’t make any mistakes and so I knew exactly what to do. They then wrote their instructions using this knowledge to help them in building sentences.

Maths

We have started some pre-multiplication learning this week by making equal groups. The children then began counting in multiples of 10 which they were super at. They were introduced to counting in 5’s which was a little more tricky so we are going to continue learning about that next week to develop our knowledge. The work in getting more and more difficult in maths but the children are making me very proud with their attitude and efforts.

Topic

The children had the chance to complete their clay models this week by deciding what colours to use then following our plan to paint them. They all loved doing their painting and they all look gorgeous! On Monday if you could send your child in with a sandwhich box or something similar so they can carry them home on the bus without them breaking, that would be super!

English

The focus of our English session this week has been instructional texts. The children have looked at the various features of an instructional text including the language used. They were reminded about imperative (bossy) verbs and the importance of precise language in instructions. Next week, they will be writing their own set of instructions on how to plant seeds.

Maths

We have been looking more in depth at the numbers to 50 this week. They have focused on counting forward and backwards within 50. The children looked at the patterns when counting up to 50 by looking at the number grid and number line. I did set them some very tricky challenges this week and I was impressed with how hard they tried.

Topic

In PSHE this week the children were learning about being collaborative learners and enjoyed some collaborative activities including passing a hoop around the circle. The rules of the game meant that the children had to support, encourage and include everyone in the group.

This isn’t something they need to know properly yet but as they were completing them in their work, I wanted to introduce the children to their proper names.

Maths

This week in maths the class have been continuing to look at numbers to 20 but have been focusing mainly on the number line.

The children have really enjoyed the story.

Maths

The children went through the grass, over the bridge, through the ‘river’, through the mud, through the forest and into the ‘cave’ where we found a very soggy bear! I wonder if the children can remember some of the describing words we used during our bear hunt such as the long wavy grass.

Maths

This week year one ordered numbers within 10. The children began to use the terminology, greater, more than, most, less than, least, smallest to describe numbers.

We then used pictures to support our understand before looking and ordering just numbers on their own.
