In maths this week, we have been learning about money. The children have identified the different amounts in coins and added different amounts of money as well. Towards the end of the week, they looked at true or false statements and had to explain to their partner their reasoning for their answer. This is an example below of some of the questions.
This week the children have been learninga bout time. They have looked at quarter to, quarter past, half past and telling the time to the nearest five minutes. At the end of the week, in groups of 4, the children made a daily timetable of a school day. Starting from the time they woke up, to going to school, to going to bed at night. They drew a picture of the activity they were doing, the time on a analogue clock and the time in words. The best team for their co-operation and teamwork throughout the task were Ollie, Basmah, Indie and Lexi’s group. Well done to you!
Well done to Mia this week in maths for working on her fact families! She made the amount with her numicom and then worked out out the two multiplication sums and the two division sums that went with it.
Well worked Mia!
Well done to Danielle this week in literacy for her independent riddle. She used her rubrics to add in capital letters, full stops and connectives. Can you guess what animal she is writing about?
In literacy we have begun working on riddles. The children in the first lesson looked at some examples together and then they were given an object/thing to write about as a group table.
Can you work the classes first go at a riddle?
What Am I?
I look like a telephone
I have smooth skin
You can find me in a market
I am yellow and curved shape
I feel like leather on the outside but sloppy on the inside!
What am I?
Well done to Maddison for winning Pupil of The Week in Panda class this week. She takes care with her work and listens carefully to how to set it out. Maddison has set the standard for the Year 1s in the class. Who will be chosen next for fantastic presentation? Well done Maddison.
In Panda class this morning, we have been working hard making our Mothers’ Day cards for our families. We used a range of different colour cards and tissue paper to create a flower effect with a nice message inside.
Happy Mothers’ Day
In maths this week we have been learning how to add three one digit numbers by looking to see if there are any number bonds to add together first. May worked extremely hard at this, using numicon to help her. Well done May, you should be really proud of your work.
