We have continued to look in depth at numbers 0-10 in Maths this week. We have have been learning how to find one more and one less than a number using a number track to help us. We have also started to compare sets of objects using the vocabulary 'more than', 'less than' and 'equal to'.
This week, we have been learning more about the Queen following our visit from her last week. We have written some fantastic fact files, making sure that we have included interesting information about her.
In our Science lesson this week, we started to learn about the five senses of the human body. We then used our sense of touch to investigate how the feel of a material changes when it is held in our hands. For example, a chocolate button changed from hard and smooth to soft and sticky. However, it remained opaque.
Week 2 (w/c 9th September)
In maths this week we have been counting and representing numbers. For example we have counted 6 dogs and then represented them by writing the digit 6, the word six and by drawing six squares.
We have really been practising our number formation and spelling of our numbers too- this is something you can keep practising at home. For example 7 and seven.
In topic we have been exploring London further by looking at maps and navigating our way around the land marks using directional language. We also studied the London Underground map too and made our way around!
In science we thought all about the names of our body parts and linked these to our senses.
We are continuing with our RWI phonics programme and we have been learning our phonic sounds and writing them in words and sentences.
It has been a very busy week and it will be finished off with our very exciting visit from the Queen at our Royal Tea Party!
Welcome to Year 1! The children have had a fantastic week and we have been really impressed with how they have started to settle into their new classes as they have become familiar with the routines of being in year 1.
In our maths lessons this week, children have been sorting objects according to different criteria:
The children demonstrated their depth of understanding by choosing their own criteria to sort objects. In addition, they have been reminding ourselves about counting objects to 10.
In our topic lessons, children have studied a map to identify the four countries of the United Kingdom. In our computing lesson, the children used laptops for the first time. They were learning how to use a trackpad to control a mouse and used the Paint programme to practise this skill.
We are looking forward to our Royal Tea Party next week!
