I am really impressed with Year 1 and their transition to making a line on the playground, they were really excited to join the rest of the school last week and have now started to go into all assemblies. The children are very settled into Year 1 life and have been working extremely hard in all areas of their learning. Last week we planned our own stories in a familiar setting and have done a lovely job of writing these independently in our special independent writing journals! We also perfected our number bonds and this week will be solving some missing number box problems using the facts we know. In history we have been thinking about old toys and writing descriptions of them. This week we will spot the difference between toys in the past and now. We will also start looking at acrostic poems, these will be based on animals to link into our new theme ‘Amazing animals.’ The children’s homework I received last week was amazing, it’s lovely to see how much they have enjoyed completing their work at home, we have given out lots of house points for their hard work and effort.
Well done Year 1 keep up the hard work!
