Welcome to Class 1T
Mrs Turner and Mrs Gould
The Autumn term has started well and everybody has settled in to Year 1.
In Literacy we have been writing recounts and we have also learned about poetry. We enjoyed reading lots of different poems and we became poets and wrote our own poetry, which we then recited to our friends. We wrote a poem about Mermaid Beach, having received a letter from a mermaid who was lost and homesick. We used our senses to think about the things we might see and hear.
In Maths we have been counting in twos, recognising odd and even numbers and looking at 'teen' and 'ty' numbers. We now know that 2 digit numbers are made up of tens and ones, e.g. 17 is 1 ten and 7 ones, 24 is 2 tens and 4 ones. We are also learning about numbers bonds to 10.
We have learned about Guy Fawkes. We enjoyed watching and taking part in a performance of the story of the Gunpowder Plot. We also thought about keeping safe on Bonfire Night.
We are also having fun each week in P.E. lessons with our Sports Coaches, learning and practising new skills. We have French each Wednesday, reinforcing and building upon the things we learned in Reception.
Please refer to our weekly Learning Together sheet for more information about our activities. Don't forget that we visit the school library each Wednesday, so please return your book in order to get a new one.
We are looking forward to the rest of the school year. Please do speak to us if you have any questions.
Mrs Ruth Turner and Mrs Trish Gould
