Welcome back Year 1! This week has been a very exciting week. In Literacy, we have been reading the traditional tale ‘Hansel and Gretel’. The children have really enjoyed exploring the book and learning how to use a speech bubble to show what a character is saying. We had so much fun acting out parts of the story!
In Phonics, we have been practising reading and writing CVC & CVCC words. We have also practised reading and spelling all high frequency words learned so far.
In Maths, we have been learning how to use the part-whole model to partition numbers to 10. The children have really impressed us with their ability to find the whole by adding together.
In Science, we have started our new Topic, ‘Everyday Materials’. The Children have really enjoyed exploring and learning the name of a selection of different materials.
In Topic, the children have loved learning about, honouring, and celebrating the achievements of black men and women throughout history.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
The Year 1 Teachers.
