Summer Term: Week 4

We hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday weekend! It has been another busy week for Year one. On Tuesday, we took part in the May Procession. It was so lovely to see the children walking in procession and laying their flowers in our beautiful Peace garden. Thank you for all your donations of flowers and plants that will be planted in the Peace garden and the Class gardens.

In Tennis, Year one played crocodiles and worked on their tennis skills. These included controlling the ball with their forehands and back hands.

In Maths the children have been looking at pairs and learning to count in two. The counted different objects and found the totals.

In English this week the children have been looking at sequencing instructions. They discussed how they brush their teeth and the different steps involved in order to add connectives to the start of their instructions.  They had to choose which connective was suitable for each instruction e.g. first, next, then, finally.

In Geography the children have continued with their learning about the Monarchy. They have focused on chronological order this week, completing a timeline based on King Charles.

In computing this week the children have been learning how to use a computer safely. The discussed the rules we have in place at school and why we have them, they then went on to link the same rules to their computing. The children focused on these 3 main points:

  • I can identify rules to keep us safe and healthy when we are using technology in and beyond the home.
  • I can give examples of some of these rules.
  • I can discuss how we benefit from these rules.
