The children have had a busy couple of weeks in Year 1.
There was much excitement when they visited Windsor Castle last Friday. They enjoyed looking around St George’s Chapel and the State Apartments. The workshop they attended called, ‘Knights Wanted, Apply Here’ was wonderful. This enabled them to find out about some of the people who lived in a castle a long time ago, what life was like in a castle and the process of becoming a Knight. A big thank you to all parents who accompanied us on our trip - we couldn’t have done it without you and your support was much appreciated.
The ‘Fitness’ afternoon on Monday was a great start to the week. The children participated well in all the events and earned themselves lots of house points along the way.
During English the children have been making 'human sentences' remembering to use a capital letter at the beginning, full stop at the end, spaces between the words and does it make sense.
This week, the children have been writing a recount of their trip to Windsor Castle. They have been encouraged to use conjunctions such as, first, next, then, finally.
Children have been using their language this week in Maths to describe the number of objects that they see – more than, less than, most, least, fewer. They have used playing cards and matched objects to the pattern and number that they see. They have also been encouraged to, ‘see it, say it and make it’ in lots of different ways. We have now progressed to one more and one less and tomorrow will be representing what they see pictorially.
In RE, the children have been listening to Psalms and writing their own. Tomorrow, we will conclude our ‘Families’ topic by thinking about our life and Jesus’ life. A big thank for all the photos, family information and family trees that we have received already. We are presently in the process of adding these to ‘Our world’ display.
Design and Technology has been fun this week and the children have worked very hard to use their designs to make and create their castles. Next week we will begin painting them and adding the final touches.
In Science, the children have been naming the seasons of the year and discussing what the weather is like in the different seasons.
Tomorrow we are going to create some art work for display to show how the trees change throughout the seasons.
Tomorrow, we are also looking forward to the Year 4 Harvest Assembly. Thank you for your generosity and all the contributions received so far which I am sure the local food bank will be thankful for.
It has been a real joy looking at the children's homework that they have completed so thank you for all your support with these tasks. Here are a few pictures that I thought would be good to share.
Have a lovely weekend!
