Dear Parents,

It’s been another fun and busy week in Year 1! We have been practising our show in the Memorial Hall which has been very exciting! Most of the children know their lines well and we are now working on making sure they can say them loudly and clearly enough for everyone to hear what they are saying. Any help you can give at home would be greatly appreciated!

In Maths the children are learning how to make and record number sentences for number bonds to 20. We have been partitioning numbers using our part, part, whole models and the children are getting quite confident with this.

In Literacy we have been focusing on the book ‘After the Storm’. We have been thinking about ways that Percy can help to fix the park after the big storm came. This week, we planned letters to write to Percy to share our ideas with him. Next week, we will be writing the letters!

In Science we have been learning about the trees we can find around the school grounds. We have been on a tree hunt around the school to identify the trees. Ask the children to tell you the names of some of the trees around Bangkok!

In Art the children have been working on their sunflower drawings. We spent time looking at our drawings from last week and making improvements to make them more realistic. The children are getting better at drawing what they can see, using careful observation skills.  

Next week all of Year 1 will be practising the Year 1 show together in the Memorial Hall! Please practise your children’s lines with them over the weekend so they are ready for our Monday rehearsal.

We hope you have a lovely weekend.

The Year 1 Team
