This week year one have created their own Picasso style self portraits; Miss Novell and Miss Hesketh are very impressed! Lots of attention was paid to different shapes and patterns. Leading into our maths this week, we have been describing and sorting 2D shapes and Literacy has seen us start to gain an understanding of the use of connectives in writing.
This week the children have been using Google Earth on the iPads to search for where we live. In Maths the children have been ‘counting on’ along a number line to solve addition. The children have been following instructions during our Literacy lessons. The children then wrote instructions using bossy words like; first, second, third, then, next, finally.
This week the children have completed self portaits, which are on display outside their classrooms. In our Maths lessons the children have been ordering days of the week and months of the year. Literacy has developed some lovely describing and sentence writing skills using ‘because’. The atlases really interested us and we were able to find lots of different places in the world.
We have been busy in class this week. During our Literacy lessons we have been writing sentences, making sure we remember our capital letters and full stops! In our Maths lessons we have been finding one more and one less than a given number. Today we have been using algorithms in ICT, using the Bee-bot app on the iPads.
Another busy week passes by!
We have grown so much in our learning throughout the year. We are all very proud of all of our achievements. We hope that you enjoy reading our School Reports.
We have been thinking about our transition into Year One and enjoyed our change over day on Thursday. We were able to meet with our new teacher and find out what’s in store for next year.
Exciting times ahead…
We have been using our trip to Whipsnade Zoo to support our work in Literacy, Maths and Art. We painted pictures of our favourite animals and wrote a piece of descriptive writing. We placed the animals in order of size and we gathered data by asking our friends about their favourite animal; we made tally charts and transferred the information onto a bar chart. We used the wooden blocks to make our own zoo. Check out our groovy glasses!
Apple class had a visit from Bessie’s dad; he brought in the BAFTA he won! The class made their own BAFTA’s. We have been exploring capacity; we went on a bottle hunt and recorded the amount of liquid in each bottle. We programmed the Beebots to move around the mats. We enjoyed sharing our learning journeys with our friends and writing our reports.
