Year 1: Weekly round up

What a jam-packed week we’ve had in Year 1! 

This week in Phonics we have been looking at the sound c, k and ck make and looking for things in our classroom that contain that sound. We then tried to figure out which word had which letter(s) to make the sound. This was tricky, but we managed to find lots of things and had fun doing it. Speaking of tricky, we also went over our Phase 2 tricky words and had a go at learning a dinosaur rap to make sure we knew them. The children really enjoyed dancing along and nodding their heads to the music! In Maths we have been looking at number recognition up to 20. Everyone did really well up to 10, but some of us found the teen numbers a little challenging. I’m sure with a bit more practice we’ll all soon be experts! For our Topic lessons we had fun drawing our homes and talking about who lived there with us. We’ve learnt about different types of homes and found out about detached, semi-detached and terrace types of houses. We’ve also been looking for our homes, places we know and other local landmarks on Google maps. We started at our school and managed to find the church, mini world and everyone’s favourite supermarket, Aldi! In PE we had a game of ‘Getting into groups of….’ which was easy for groups of 2, but much more difficult getting into groups of 5 or 6. We found we didn’t always have the right number of people for each group! 

The children have all worked really hard this week and should be proud of themselves. Well done guys and see you all again next week!
