Happy Half Term Everyone. I hope you are having a lovely break and enjoying the sunshine. Spring is nearly here!
Our last week before half term was a productive one, the children had fun whilst working hard.
English: The children wrote an independent re-tell of the Little Red Riding Hood story in their topic books. I have taken these books home to assess the children’s next steps. I was so impressed with their dedication and motivation to write along with all the skills they applied in their writing.
Maths: We have been working hard to complete our first Singapore maths book. We have been looking at the addition and subtraction facts to 20 and the fact family, so if you know 8+5=13 you could also know 13-8=5 and 5+8=13 and 13-5=8. We have worked on 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes, recognising these shapes, looking at their properties and grouping shapes as well as making patterns and completed some work on length and height.
This week has been Online Safety Week so we enjoyed an assembly from our Digital Leaders and in our Computing lesson we created posters to raise awareness of how to stay safe online.
This half term has flown by. I can’t believe we are now half way through the children’s time in year 1. Enjoy the rest of your week and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
