Monday and Tuesdays are school holidays. Enjoy this break with your family and we look forward to seeing all the children back rested and ready for school on Wednesday 15 November.
- Year 1 will be creating some junk art for our theme ‘Go Wild’ please bring in any packaging waste you have around the house.
In Literacy we will be introducing our fiction unit. For the first week, children will focus on familiarising and sequencing a story.
Sequencing, first, next, then, last, finally
In Maths we will continue to focus on number bonds. Children will apply their knowledge of number bonds to answer addition and subtraction word problems.
How many more/less? Take away, less, subtract, minus, add, more, plus
We will be continuing our topic Go Wild! The children will continue to learn about different types of animals, such as amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds and insects. They will sort animals into herbivores and carnivores and then by habitat. The children will collaborate to group animals correctly and use iPads to record their findings.
Habitat, herbivore, carnivore, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds and insects
COMPUTER PROGRAMMING AND DIGITAL LITERACY
The children will learn how to code and develop their coding skills through a computer programme on laptops. They will learn that they can make an item move by giving it clear instructions.
Forwards, backwards, left, right, stop, go
Children will discuss through circle time what a conflict is, recognise examples in school and discuss as a class how to deal with these conflicts in a calm, positive manner.
Conflict, positive, solutions
