We have had a fun last few days at school. We have been learning about why some people give Easter eggs and about all the new life that starts in spring. For example, lambs being born, new flowers growing and chicks hatching. We had fun designing Spring and Easter cards and even designing our own Easter eggs and having an Easter egg hunt in the classroom! Can you spot where some of the Easter eggs were hiding?
We will be learning about the ‘ing’ and ‘ed’ endings in Phonics this week, along with some irregular verb endings and alternative spellings.
Spellings this week are therefore:
They, their, there, showing, playing, asking, walked, started, climbed, spoke
Can you put them into sentences once you have learnt them?
We will be learning about time in Maths next week. Could you write down what you do during a particular day. For example
- At 7 o’clock I got out of bed.
- At 8 o’clock I ate my breakfast
Have a wonderful weekend.
The Year 1 team
We have been learning about animals in Science and there are lots of cheeky animals that steal Handa’s fruit in Handa’s Surprise, which we have been reading in English, so in Art we have been making animal masks, creating animals out of paper plates and even designing our own dream pets (like a flying dog with a unicorn horn!)
We have been reading Handa’s Surprise in English this week. We have been thinking about the characters in the story and the setting. Here we are acting out the story (we tried really hard to use our big voices)!
Today Year 1 children were set the challenge of finding two items that weigh the same. Here they are showing what they found.
We had so much fun on our trip to Selsdon Library. We saw lots of books in the library but also audiobooks, comics and even computers!
A huge thank you to all the adults that were able to help and a big well done to all the children in Badger and Squirrel class for being superstars on their trips.
