We’ve had such a fantastic start to the Summer term in Year 1!
Mrs Wang shared a bag of objects with her new class 1JM to help them get to know her a bit better and the next day they could remember all fifteen items!
We have enjoyed reading ‘The Woods’ in our literacy lessons. One of our favourite characters was the triple-headed dragon! The children have learnt all about nouns this week and identified some from the book. Then they worked together to decide if each noun was a person, place or thing and used super phonics knowledge to sound out the spellings.
0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50…….. 100! In Maths, we have practised counting in 2s, 5s and 10s as well as making equal groups with different objects. We have been really impressed with their independence when asked to complete a Maths activity using what they’ve been taught.
This Maths game was a popular one if you want to have a try at home:
There’s been lots of singing in Science with heads, shoulders, knees and toes and the children were excellent at labelling body parts on photographs and chalk drawings of themselves.
In music, we focused on what pulse and tempo mean and listened carefully to the Jaws and Hawaii Five-O theme tunes. Next, each group took on the role of swimmer, surfer, shark or speedboat to retell a story with sound effects and actions. Luckily, the speedboats rescued the holiday makers from the sharks circling in the water just in time!
