We have had another super week in Year 1! The children have settled back into school so well with the many new routines.
This week, we have been reading ‘Only One You’ by Linda Kranz. It led us on to a discussion about how everyone is unique, with the children then thinking about what makes them unique. They have written some fantastic sentences about things that interest them and aspects of their personality that make them unique. They have also worked hard to include full stops at the end of the sentences too!
We have used this book for inspiration for some Art too. The class designed their own unique pebble fish, just like in the book, then went on to paint their design onto paper for display. Next week, they will be able to then paint it onto a salt dough pebble.
We have been working on comparing numbers in Maths, particularly focussing on using the vocabulary: ‘more than’, ‘less than’, ‘fewer’ and ‘as many as’. The children compared sorting toys onto different desert islands in the tuff tray to show their understanding.
In Phonics, we are wrapping up our revision on Phase 3 sounds - these are linked to the new assignments set on Spelling Shed. I am really pleased with the progress in the childrens Phonics already, they have worked really hard at sound talking then blending.
Next week, there will be a slight change to routine. We will now be doing a second P.E. session on Tuesdays, instead of Forest School. The children will need to come into school in P.E. kit just like on Monday, and obviously won’t need to bring any waterproofs for Forest School. We will still be doing Forest School on Thursday as it stands.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
