This week in maths, we’ve been looking at numbers up to 100.
We’ve been using a 100 square to identify the numbers, fill in the missing squares, and even adding and subtracting using the 100 square!
Super maths! Well done, Class 1!
This week we have been estimating.
We know that it is a posh word for a guess, and it doesn’t matter if we are wrong as long as our guesses are sensible.
We’ve also been looking at rhyming words in literacy. Here, the girls have written some excellent sentences containing rhyming words! Well done girls!
This week in Class 1 we have been learning all about money!
We have learned to recognise 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, and 20p coins. We’ve even been adding coins together to reach a given amount.
Some of us have also used our knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s to find the total amount of money in a purse.
Well done Class 1!
This Wednesday we celebrated (a rescheduled) World Book Day! We all came into school in our favourite under the sea fancy dress costumes. Here we all are in our classroom reading area!
We also wrote some fantastic pieces of writing about sharks. We read the question, and provided a silly answer. We remembered to use capital letters, finger spaces, and full stops.
We also received our KidsSafe certificates this week for completing the Early Years KidsSafe programme. We were presented with them in assembly on Thursday. We will miss KS but we have learnt lots of valuable ways of keeping ourselves safe.
This week in Class 1 we have been reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We made a story map to help us remember each event in the story, and then began to use the story format to write our own stories about very hungry animals.
The children came up with some fantastic ideas of different animals they could write about, and were very imaginative in the food that they would eat!
We also talked about different adjectives we could use to describe the food, for example, delicious, juicy, yummy. Ask your child if they can remember an adjective we have used this week.
Super story writing Class 1!
