Year 1 have worked hard this week to understand what it means to have a good set of instructions. They found it funny learning and acting out bad set of instructions! They finished their week by following instructions on where to place Lego bricks and then gave their partner instructions to follow. I have sent them a challenge to see what instructions they can find in their everyday lives over the weekend; be careful though as they may not listen to ‘poor’ instructions. Good luck!
In R.E. Year 1 have continued to learn how to lead a Virtuous Life and this week were full of ideas about how to be a good neighbour. They enjoyed role-playing and acting our good actions and unkind actions to their neighbours.
Year 1’s Geography topic on ‘Why do we like the seaside so much?’ has proven very popular! The children were able to distinguish between urban and rural areas, name some coastal towns and began to learn about Southend. They are very excited for their upcoming trip so they can see the longest Pier!
In maths the children are beginning to learn clockwise and anticlockwise directions in preparation for learning how to tell the time next week. There was not any Mathletics activities to support this so I have set some multiplication and odd and even to revise. I will find some resources to support next week.
Please see the Phonics home learning pack in their bags for the sounds learnt this week.
P.E. kits for Monday (P.E. Tennis) and Wednesday (swimming) next week.
Enjoy the weekend,
