It’s the end of our first week back in Year 1 and well done to everyone! You have all been working so hard and settled in well. We are all super proud! 😁
You have done some brilliant work in the different classroom areas. We’ve seen some excellent animal pictures come from our Role Play Safari area as well as some super lists and drawings of things you would take with you to the Jungle. You’ve made some creative Jungle scenes including trees 🌴, boats 🛶 and Safari Jeeps 🚗 in our Construction area. You have also been working hard sorting animals into various groups in our Small World area. 🐯🐵 🦋🐠🐊🦜 I am also really pleased to see how hard you have all worked on your Phonics this week learning the ‘ck’ sound. In our Maths lessons you have done exceptionally well learning about number bonds to 10. We rounded off our busy week in our outdoor area and had fun exploring outside and getting some much needed fresh air.
Next week in Maths we will be examining doubling up numbers to 5 as well as looking at the ‘qu’ sound during Phonics? Can you think of any words with the ‘qu’ sound in before Monday? Here is a link to the Jolly Phonics song that might help you to think of some. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXfszNc2tAI
We are also very excited to be finding out more about the Jungle and its inhabitants during our topic lesson. We’ll be looking and learning about the different layers of a rainforest and which animals live where. Some live on the ground but some live way up in the canopy!
We hope that you all have a lovely weekend and a well earned rest. We look forward to seeing you all again on Monday.
Mr Hall, Mrs Cheetham and Mrs McCaffrey 🙉🙈🙊
