Year 1 WC 22nd October 2018

Date: 30th Oct 2018 @ 11:17am

Well I can't believe we have reached the end of our first half term. It has been wonderful getting to the know the children and I think they have settled in brilliantly to Year 1. 

In English the children have been been publishing their instructions of 'How to catch a...' showing off their lovely handwriting they have been working so hard on. We have also done some sentence work around an image practising our full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and using interesting adjectives. 

In maths we have continued to work on addition of single digits. This including comparing number bonds e.g. adding < or > between number bonds 6 + 7 ___ 8 + 4 and finding missing numbers: 3 + 4 = 5 + ___ . 

In RE we continued to look at the creation story in the Bible and how this is important to Christians. We sat in a circle with our fruit bowl in the middle. As we ate the fruit, we didn't rush but instead thought carefully about how the fruit grew, what it needed and how it got to us, remembering that it is important to be thankful for the food we have. We considered how we can say 'thank you' to God for our world such as caring for the environment, showing kindness, forgiveness and being the best we can be. 

I hope you are all having a lovely half term. I have not set any homework but please keep up with reading, both sharing books together and listening to your child read.
