Summer Week 2 w.b. 24.04.2023
This week the children recalled the events of Holy week and reflected on how Mary, the disciples and the crowds would have been feeling at different points in the week.
Year 1 have been enjoying following successful and unsuccessful instructions this week based on ‘How to wash a Woolly Mammoth. They learnt about different types of sentences to use: command, exclamation, statement and question and worked well to group them.
Year 1 worked hard with their new knowledge of 2p, 5p and 10p and applied it to counting in multiples of 2,5 and 10 this week. Additional Maths links to practise multiplication fluency:
Year 1 started their new topic ‘Data Handling’. Year 1 enjoyed collecting lots of objects from the classroom and working together to decide what their categories should be before they made labels for them. They then had to group the objects into pairs and they were able to practise their multiplication too!
Year 1 are now learning Module Two: Created to Love Others. Content information is available on the school website https://popepaul.herts.sch.uk/rse-consultation/ and the letter containing the parent password is at the top of the Year 1 webpage https://popepaul.herts.sch.uk/year-1/.
This week the children learnt about how to stay safe in practical ways e.g. wearing helmets but also online safety. They learnt how ‘Smartie the Penguin’ stays safe online and wanted to share the video and song with you at home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7vZF-8bTFI&ab_channel=MrStarbuckEducation-IdeasforPrimaryTeachers . They also learned about how to keep private parts private and we used Pantasaurus to help us understand https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/support-for-parents/pants-underwear-rule/ .
