Dear Parents,
Year 1 are continuing to be taken on a culinary journey around the world with our parent cooking sessions. This week we’ve made Thai Laap Gai and English Cheddar cheese and sweetcorn muffins. Thank you so much to all parents who have offered to help. The children are learning so much in such a fun, hands on way!
In Science, we have been using our sense of sight to complete a scavenger hunt, where the children have had to match cryptic photo clues to certain places around our school. 
In Literacy, our imaginations have been running wild as we have been designing a new pie filling for Mrs O’ Brien. We have come up with some delicious and creative ideas such as Sticky strawberry gum pie, Chocolate M and M pie and Blueberry ice cream pie! Our next steps are to write our own instructions for these incredible pies as independently as possible. 
In Maths, we have been learning to add numbers and compare number sentences using the greater than, less than and equals signs. We have also been representing addition number bonds in different ways. 
We all really enjoyed dressing up in our beautiful outfits to celebrate Diwali on Wednesday and look forward to more festivities next Thursday ( 22nd November) when we dress up again for Loy Krathong. 
Thank you for your continued support and have a restful weekend. 
The Year 1 team​
