Welcome to this week's Year One Blog
What we have been learning this week
This week has been extremely exciting but a little bit different for the children. They have spent time with their new class and teacher for September. The children have played 'get to know us' games, familiarised themselves with their new classroom and they have been introduced to some stories that we will be focusing on in September. It has been lovely to see their excited smiles and they have definitely proven to us that they are Year 2 ready!
This week in literacy we have learnt about similes as we have described the setting in our story 'Little Red'. In maths we learnt about time and we are now able to tell the time to the hour.
This week we have learnt about animals and what they eat. We have learnt how to group animals into omnivores, herbivores and carnivores.
We have also been practising for our Sports Day on Friday 15th July.
What we are learning next week
On Monday and Tuesday we are going to be in our Year 2 classrooms.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be back in Year 1. In literacy we are going to continue to learn about similes and write a setting description about the forest. In maths we are going to learn to tell the time to half past. We will also continue practising for Sports Day and Upton's Got Talent!
