We apologise for the blog break but we had a few technical problems. Now we are back and hope we can keep you updated at least weekly with what has been happening in Year 1, which is a lot!
Thank you for bringing in such a lovely collection of Autumn signs and it is wonderful to see how they can talk about these.
This week we introduced the children to the book Commotion in the Ocean, by Giles Andreae. They discussed their favourite sea creatures and today they composed a character description. They included detail and some interesting adjectives to describe their chosen animal.
In Maths we have continued to practice number bonds within 10 and introduced addition and subtraction this week. The children are using concrete objects as well as pictures to develop their understanding. They have then started to associate stories with number problems and to write equations.
We are discussing changes in children and what happens as we grow up. We have been drawing and writing about our own timelines.
In computing we have been practicing logging on the school laptops with their own logins. We started talking about algorithms and splitting instructions in really small steps, as a bee-bot can do.
On Monday we will be sending home more information about our first school trip, a visit to Highfield Park. We are really looking forward to it. Fingers crossed for good weather.
We hope you all have a great weekend.
Mrs De Vynck and Mrs Foulds
