Week beginning 14th September 2020
Welcome back to the new school year! We have had a brilliant start to the year in Year 1, the children have transitioned well from Reception. Last week we enjoyed our Wellbeing Week. Where we focused on the 5 ways to wellbeing; connect, take notice, give, learn and stay active. The class participated in some yoga, outdoor games, mindful activities and even seed planting.
In English this week, we started to look at a new text which is Peace at Last. The children have been amazing at remembering the steps to the story. We came up with some actions to help us remember the parts in the story and the children have especially enjoyed joining in with Mr Bears dialogue when he says, “Oh no, I can’t stand this!”
In Maths this week, we looked at numbers to 5. The children took part in a game where they had to use fly splatters to practise their number recognition. The class used concrete materials to represent numbers and show number bonds.
This week in topic lessons, we have started our new topic ‘This is Me’. The children have all created handprints to be displayed as leaves on our class family tree. They have been completing some art work looking at portraits including self portraits.
