Well done to our VIP readers over the last two weeks. Keep up all of your hard work!
During maths week we were given a very tricky puzzle to solve with a partner called 'The Greco-Latin Square'.
Challenge 1: Arrange the shapes on the grid so that there is only one of each shape in every row and column.
Challenge 2: Arrange the shapes on the grid so that there is only one of each colour AND shape in each column and row.
Our emerald power was tested to its limits during this challenge but we all persevered, worked as a team and succeeded in the end!
Well done to all of those children who read MORE than 3 times at home over the last 2 weeks! We are giving out a lot of well-deserved gems for some fantastic reading. Keep up the hard work!
It's VIP Friday again and this week we are celebrating the fantastically fluent reading of Evie, Brutus, Rosabelle, Olivia, Hunter-James, Agatha, Charlotte and Amber!
We have been very impressed with how many children are consistently reading three or more times and have given an abundance of gems to those pupils. Keep up the great effort everyone!
October has been a very busy month in Year 1! We began with design and technology. During our DT sessions, we designed and made our very own finger puppets. After carefully choosing from several of our own designs, we showed great concentration as we used a running stitch to join our material together. As you will agree, our finished products look fantastic.
We then moved on to introduce geography. We explored what geography is and narrowed it down to maps, human features, physical features, weather and The Earth. Whilst studying different maps, we noticed they are all taken from an aerial view. We then made 'messy maps' of our classrooms from an aerial view perspective, and labelled the different objects we would be able to see from above.
Congratulations to our Platinum readers for reading four or more times this week!
