Gosh, what a busy time we are having in Year 1! I realised although the blog was written last week (Mrs Medlicott wrote it) it never got posted – so sorry!
Year 1 and 2 had a brilliant time at the Sea Life Centre! The children were beautifully behaved and listened attentively throughout our tour. We loved Polar Express in the 4D cinema and all saw Father Christmas, who was kind enough to give me 60 gifts to give to the children for being so wonderful! We learnt lots of fascinating facts about the creatures we saw and our guide was impressed with the children’s knowledge. One of my highlights was the children belting out our Christmas songs whilst waiting for the bus to park, the people of Birmingham had a real treat hearing our Christmas songs sung with Tardebigge enthusiasm!
In English we discussed our trip to the Sea Life Centre. We talked about the different things we had enjoyed and learned about during our visit and we then wrote a recount of our trip. We were very impressed with the children’s writing.
In Maths we have had a go at journaling. Basically, demonstrating our knowledge and understanding. We asked the children to, ‘represent 7’, and they did an amazing job! They did pictures, wrote the word seven, some chose to write equations such as 4+3=7, 3+4=7, 7-4=3, etc. The children also begun work on ordinal numbers, first, second, third etc.
For the rest of the week the children have been creating their Christmas cards and Christmas decorations for the church's tree at Worcester Cathedral.
We took our rehearsals onto the stage in church on Tuesday and practiced again today, Miss Sutton altered the script for the final time at lunch and then this afternoon we made more changes! The children are absolutely amazing, and I think you are in for a treat on Thursday
Have a great weekend Year 1.
