Welcome to Year One
Our class is called Moonbeams.
Our teacher is called Miss Bennett and our teaching assistants are Miss Routledge and Miss Howley.
Things to remember:
Library is on Thursday.
P.E is on Friday.
Have a look at what we have been up to this week:
On Monday we went on our very own Bear Hunt! We had to find our missing class teddy bear who was lost in the forest school. We went through the swishy grass, through the crunchy leaves, through the sticky mud and through the hard playground until we found our little lost bear! We had a fantastic time doing some outdoor learning.
This adventure led us to our writing in Literacy - this week we have been writing a recount all about the Bear Hunt. When we write a recount we have to remember to use time openers. Some examples of time openers that we have used in our writing are - First, Next, Then, After that and Finally.
We started the week with 'No Pens Day' on Monday which was great fun! We thought of lots of different ways that we could record our learning instead of using a pen.
In English we did some speaking and listening by making a prediction about our new book 'Plenty of Love to Go Round.'
In Maths we used Numicon to make number bonds to 10. Then we wrote down the number sentences using chalk on the playground and we also used the iPads.
In Science we went on a senses hunt around the school. We use our hands to touch, eyes to see, nose to smell, ears to listen and our tongues to taste. We had to collect something for each of our senses, however we didn't find anything to taste in the playground! We found Maggie's yellow ball, a soft leaf, a rough piece of bark, a sweet smelling flower and we heard the wind.
This was a fantastic start to our week!
Also this week...
In R.E we have been learning about Harvest Festival.
In Art we have created self- portraits.
In Music we have using instruments to create a melody and a beat.
In PSHE we have been learning how to give compliments to our friends.
This week we have been very busy!
In English we have been learning how to write a sentence. We have been trying to remember to use capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We have also been learning about how to use a conjunction in our sentence. A good way of remembering how to spell 'because' is: Big Elephants Can't Always Use Small Exits!
In Maths we have been learning about finding one more than or one less than a given number. We also been practising using our reasoning skills by answering lots of true or false questions.
In Science we have been learning about parts of the body and what we use them for. Here are some of our ideas:
'I can use my feet to jump!'
'I can use my hips to hula hoop!'
'I can use my hands and fingers to roll play dough!'
In Music we have been learning lots of new songs and playing instruments.
