Some of the learning this week

In maths we have practised adding using different strategies. We have used our counting skills to combine groups of objects and record addition sentences.

We have also learned to count on from a given number using a number line, very tricky!!!

This week we have also celebrated European Day of Languages. In year 1 we learned all about France.

The children had a fun day innovating Sunny the meerkat's story and followed him in his travel to France.

We made Eiffel Towers and French flags and listened to the traditional tale of Le Petit Chaperon Rouge.

We enjoyed many French delicacies including a selection of cheeses and patisseries.

Week 2

Well done to Olly this week for his relentless contribution during our carpet times!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We received a special delivery earlier on this week and attempted to guess who this suitcase might belong to. The children practised answering questions and tried to find out where the person was coming from and travelling to.

We thought about what type of clothes we would need if we travelled to a hot or cold place and wrote lists of items we would pack in our suitcases.

We are learning to represent numbers using objects and drawings. We are perfecting our counting and practised counting out loud, touching/ moving objects while counting and putting them in a line to avoid miscounting.

 

 

Week 1

We have had a very busy first week in Cambridge class! I am very pleased to say that the children have settled well in their new environment and they are all beginning to adjust to the routine and the expectations of year 1!
