Well this brings us to the end of another great half term in Year 1. The children have had a range of exciting experiences this week and have thoroughly enjoyed our topic on “Food”. Subway was a highlight and the children not only designed their own sandwich, and ordered what they wanted but they also paid for it and calculated how much change they should get. Eating the sandwich was clearly the best part for the children!
They were lucky enough to have a guest come and demonstrate how to make salapao steamed buns. They had a go at making it themselves too and then, once again, enjoyed eating it!
Thank you to those of you who ran in the Fun Run with your child. A lot of money has been raised for charity and we thank you for your support.
On Thursday the children spent the day in their Houses, rotating around 6 different food-related activities. They did lots of making and creating and baking and eating. . . of course!
A reminder that school will be closed from Monday 20th – Friday 24th February. Have a restful holiday with your child and thank you for your continued support.
It has been an exciting week full of learning!
In Literacy we have started to change our Mr Nobel text to write our own stories! We have changed the character Mr Noble to all different funny names, from Mr Chai to Mr Strawberry! We have also been designing our very own front covers for our books, thinking hard about drawing carefully to make our pictures really clear.
On Monday we came into class and all of our clocks had disappeared! We had to put them back together again, thinking carefully about where the numbers go. We were very good at telling the time to the hour, we also practiced telling the time to half past. See if you can practice at home!
In topic we have been continuing to look at healthy eating and we can’t wait to visit the sandwich shop next week to taste some delicious healthy sandwiches.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the fun run next week!
Have a lovely weekend,
1NM had a great time sharing their snacks with their friends and teddy bears!
What a busy week it has been in Y1!
We have really enjoyed raising money for charity week. From own clothes day on Monday, the Charity Fair on Wednesday and Thursday and our space hopping relay all week! Thank you for all your support and for helping us to raise lots of money!
In Literacy we have been learning to write a story about an apple pie adventure. We have learnt the story with actions so maybe we can tell it to you at home!
In Maths we have been learning to divide by sharing amounts equally. This ended with a wonderful teddy bears picnic where we had to divide the food equally between us and our teddy bears!
In Topic we have been trying different fillings for sandwiches and designed a healthy sandwich of our own. We look forward to making them next week!
Today we very much enjoyed all the Chinese New Year festivities and our special Chinese assembly.
Have a lovely weekend,
