What a fantastic week of learning, all the adults were impressed with the children’s imagination.. They have been developing their vocabulary through orally rehearsing sentences about what is possible and impossible in real life, and how the impossible can become possible in a fantasy world!
In English the children used their imagination to turn UCPS into a fantasy world. Some of the children said that the climbing frame was a “City of poisonous spiders with giant cobwebs”. We also have been describing the features of fantasy characters.
In Maths the children have counting in 2s. We introduce the idea of arrays to help the children counting and also we have done word problems where the children have to count in 2s.
In PE we have been practicing our throwing and catching with small balls and also we practice passing with our feet.
The children have also enjoyed completing their Rainbow Challenges in class.
We are looking forward to see the parents during learning conversations and share how wonderful the children in Year 1 are and the amazing progress they have made.
English: We will be writing our own fantasy story!
Phonics: We will be focussing on different sounds during the week.
Maths: We will be counting in steps of 5.
For our Robot theme, we will be looking at the history of Robots and why they were invented.
Thank you Year One for all of your super learning this week- your teachers continue to be proud of you!
The Year One Team.
