Another varied week in Year 1.Everyone is really settling into routines now. This week I introduced everyone working at a table in a learning space with a work partner. This is proving successful. Although there is still plenty opportunities for learning through play as well.
In English this week we continued to change our learned story of Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers to have our own characters, setting and ending. We will start writing our individual stories next week. We also continue to embed our phonic sounds to help with reading and writing.
In Maths we learnt about addition with numbers up to 10 then 20. We used ten frames, number lines and bar modelling to help us calculate answers. We also used the language of altogether, more add and equals.
We continue to learn about penguins and we practised modelling with play dough ready to make our penguins out of clay next week. It took a lot of concentration as you can see above.
In geography we are learning about the continents of the world. Maybe you could look at some maps on the internet and see if you can spot them, to help you remember.
During our PE lesson, we made good use of the sunny weather and practised our catching skills outside. We also gave our bodies a good stretch in a Yoga lesson.
Next week we will be concentrating on God’s harvest and watching a live link to a Harvest Cafod assembly that all school children can take part in. It is especially important during these difficult times that we remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves and may not have enough food to eat. Cafod has lots of resources that you might like to access. There is also a Link to celebrate Family Fast Day on 9th October.
