We have been as busy as bees this weeks! Some of us have been learning the 'ee/ea' sound and actually spent time being bees. This week we want to share with you how we have been progressing in our topic lessons.
For World Book Day, we arrived to school in some truly wonderful costumes. During the day we got to explore characters in stories and write a description of a chosen character. We are very excited to share with you some of our photos from World Book Day...
Over this term we have explored 'The Jolly Postman'. As you may have seen we made story maps, we created sequencing, we told others of the story and we wrote the story. This week we created and published our stories.
Over the last couple of weeks, we've been looking at story telling in Literacy. We have been looking at positioning and numbers to twenty in Maths. We have also started exploring the effects of plastic pollution.
Over the last few weeks, we have been exploring electricity. We've gone from examining the dangers of electricity to building our own electric circuits. This week we spent a whole morning without any electricity!
It has been another very busy week for us year ones. In maths, we have been learning about the part part whole diagram. In topic, we have been exploring static electricity and the dangers of electricity. And as you can guess we have been looking at stories in literacy.
