Year 1 Week 11 2015

In Literacy this week, all of the children have rewritten the first part of the fairy tale “The Frog Prince”. This was a “Hot Write” task at the end of our current unit of work about story settings. We were thrilled to read so many interesting descriptive words in the children’s writing. Well done to everybody!
In Mathematics the children have been doubling numbers up to double 10. Children are beginning to know these doubles “by heart”. We have been finding all the number bonds to 10. Then the children have used their knowledge of pairs to 10, to make pairs to 20.
E.g. 10 = 3 + 7, 20 = 13 + 7 and 20 = 3 + 17.
It is a pleasure for us, and you, to hear the children reading with increasing confidence and understanding. Please continue to encourage your child to read at least five times every week.

Thank you for your continued support.
