The weeks are flying by, I can’t believe we only have a week until half term, then it will be my final half term with my lovely Year 1’s! They are working so hard and it is lovely to see how much they have grown up and matured.
English: Nibbles, the Book Monster, has nibbled his way into Little Red Riding Hood. The children wrote their own setting descriptions of the forest that Little Red Riding Hood walked through. They also looked at the character and appearance of the wolf and wrote wanted posters for him.
Maths: We have continued our chapter on numbers to 100. We have counted objects to 100 by grouping in 10’s then counting the ones that are left over. We have worked on finding tens and ones and combining this to give our number. We have compared two and then three groups of objects saying which is greatest, smallest etc.
Phonics: The children have continued to practice blending and sounding out real and alien words.
Science: The children were divided into two groups and our two students took a group each. One group investigated the best coat for Little Red Riding Hood to wear to keep her dry on a rainy day, i.e. waterproofing. The other group investigated the best materials for Grandma’s curtains, whist looking at transparent, translucent and opaque materials. Both groups were able to carry our practical investigations using scientific equipment. The groups will swop over next week so each child will have the chance to do both investigations.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
