Welcome to this week's Year One Blog
What we have been learning this week
This week has been very exciting for the children in Year One. We have been lucky enough to have athletes come to visit our school and we completed our very own athletic course.
Now that the children are all settled in, here is some information about reading which may be useful:
This week in Literacy we have been continuing with our 'Astro Girl' book and we have been finding out a variety of facts about Space. We have then used these facts to create our very own fact files to showcase all of our new learning.
This week in Maths we have been learning about how to use a number line and place numbers within 10 on this. We have also introduced them to addition by looking at part-part whole models.
We are encouraging the children to use Doodle Maths at home to improve their maths fluency. If you do not know your child's login, please ask your class teacher.
What we are learning next week
In Maths, we are continuing with addition and using the add symbol. We are also going to be introduced to fact families.
In Literacy, we are going to be writing a letter to Astrid using all that we have learnt so far.
In Guided Reading, we are going to be making predictions based on the book 'How to Catch a Star' by Oliver Jeffers.
