Welcome to Mole Class
It has been a pleasure getting to know the children in Mole Class over the past two weeks. They all seem to be settling into the routine of year 1 and enjoying their new learning environment. Thank you for all your support.
Our topic for the last two weeks has been moles. The children have come up with some fantastic facts about moles, about where they live, what they eat and what they look like. Using this knowledge, the children were able to create some detailed and amazing posters using their pieces of art work and the facts they had written.
Next week, we will be learning about the different types of animals and their adaptations to survive in the wild.
In maths, we have been learning about place value; the value of tens and ones. The children have built numbers using practical resources and were also able to write number sentences to support their knowledge. Next week we will start learning about number bonds to ten.
In English, we have been reading “Room on the Broom,” and the children have been able to come up with imaginative and detailed descriptions for the characters in the story; using their understanding of adjectives. Next week we will be starting to retell the story of “Room on the Broom”, which I am sure the children will enjoy, as they have already been able think of actions to go along with the story when it has been read in class.
Reading books will be changed every week and sent home.
P.E will start on Thursday this week, so please make sure your child has a named P.E kit.
Please ensure you child's jumper/cardigan is named to prevent these from getting lost. Also that your child has a named jacket as the weather is meant to get colder and wetter.
