Strike Action 2nd March 2023
Welcome to Hedgehog Class
Our Geography topic about the United Kingdom has started and the children are excited to learn all about London. We will learn about the United Kingdom and the four countries within it. We will then learn about their capital cities, focusing more on London. We will explore London landmarks and learn how London has developed through the years since the Great Fire. In English, we have read Dear Greenpeace and have researched blue whales. We have developed our understanding of books by answering questions about the text and sequencing ideas. In maths, we have covered numbers to 50 and are now moving to measuring. We have looked at measuring things in CM and are now exploring mass and capacity. Remember to use My Maths - there is learning set on there every week.
Our PE days are Fridays and we are learning ball and racket skills. We visit the school library every Friday and you are able to choose a book to take home - remember to bring back your library book from last week otherwise you won't be able to take another one home. In year one, you get two reading books a week. One of the books is placed at the colour you are reading and you can use it to practise your word decoding. The other book is the colour below - this book can be used to help develop your comprehension skills (answering questions about the book as you read).
