What a fun first week back we have had in Year 1! We started the week with our Dinosaur topic launch which the children absolutely loved! You can read all about in my previous launch post. Earlier this week we learnt some different dinosaur names and then put them in to alphabetical order. This was a bit tricky as some of the names started with the same letter! In Phonics we have been learning about the ‘ur’ sound and, with the help of our friend Geraldine Giraffe, came up with words such as purple, purse and surf. In Maths we have been ordering 2 digit numbers up to 100. We used a number squares to help us find out which number came next in the sequence. We have also been listening to the story of Tyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson. We then made a list of words to describe the two main characters, Drip and Tyrannosaurus. We also discussed how each character was different but did have some similatirtes, so maybe the same word could go in both lists. Towards the end of the week we enjoyed PE in the sun and played some fun games to help us to keep active! Well done Year 1, you’ve all done brilliantly.
Next week, PE will return to a Wednesday afternoon as our Thursday sessions with Liam have come to an end. I will post a reminder on Tuesday. Therefore, children will need to come dressed in there PE Kits on the Wednesday and please be sure to bring a water bottle! Our forest school session will remain unchanged and take place on Thursdays.
