English

This week in their English lessons, the children have been recounting what they did on their holidays.  They used photographs to help them plan and prepare their writing.  They prepared a writing plan for their recount which included key vocabulary including; nouns and adjectives. Finally, they completed their recount in their books, taking time to check their writing for punctuation and spelling.

Maths

This week the children have been reviewing what they have learned so far in Year 1.  We have looked at counting, addition, measurement and shape.  Next week the children will be carrying out first term assessments to inform next steps teaching.

Project Work

This week the children started their new project ‘Let’s Celebrate’.  The children looked at different celebrations across the world and thought about the things that make a good celebration.  They used this to plan their own celebration in class which included; music, dancing, games and decorations.

Mandarin

This week, the children learned about words related to their neighbourhood, such as; school, park, supermarket, playground, bus stop, MRT station and hospital etc. They learnt how to construct a sentence using ‘I go to…’  They also engaged in various activities to apply their learning in context such as; playing charades, role playing, flashcard games and guessing games. Online flashcards will be introduced in the next Weekly Round Up Email.
