Year 1 Week 16 2015

On Tuesday, Mrs Mason asked all of the Year 1 children to investigate why the chickens appeared to be upset. We discovered some golden eggs near the hens. Then, to our amazement, we found magic beans in our corridor! We are sure your child will enjoy telling you what else we discovered in the Y1 environment.

In Literacy this week, our work has been related to “Jack and the Beanstalk”. We have been retelling the story with actions. We are also thinking about how a character might feel, what they might say, and how they might speak.

In Mathematics we have continued the number work from last week. The children have been making amounts using 10p and 1p, coins. We have been identifying the number of 10’s and 1’s in 2 digit numbers. The children have also used 100 squares to show 10 more/10 less than a 2 digit number, as well as 1 more/1 less than a 2 digit number.

Forest Schools – Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for the warmer weather. Each child needs to wear a thin, long-sleeved top as well as long trousers/leggings. This is to minimise the risk of infection from ticks. Your child also will need a sun hat and sun cream, as well as suitable footwear.

Please check your child every Tuesday for ticks, just in case.

Thank you for your continued support.
