Welcome to our latest blog post!
Over the past few weeks we have been working on developing our writing skills!
We have had so much fun creating imaginative stories and drawing pictures to match. We have been brainstorming lots of ideas and working hard to sound out the letters of the words we want to write.
Our story this week was all about what we would see if we visited space! We spoke about using rockets to get there and also discussed the possibilities of aliens living there!
We also always try to make sure we use finger spaces! This helps us when we read our story to someone else.
Writing our stories was so much fun that we decided to make our own aliens using play dough and also using lots of different art materials.
We have nearly finished learning all of our single sounds! Now we are moving on to learning phonemes which include ‘oa’, ‘ie’ and ‘or’.
All of this practice is helping us to improve our ability to blend sounds to read words.
Numeracy and Maths
Recently we have been exploring lots of elements of maths! We have been learning about measure, estimation and addition as well as revisiting our knowledge of patterns and shape!
Learning all of these new things has helped us to consolidate our ability to count, sequence and order numbers as well as finding the missing number!
We had so much fun making our own number line and jumping to the number to show one less and one more than a given number!
Learning outside has been so much fun! We have been able to apply the skills we have learned in the classroom to our outdoor area.
We had so much fun ordering sticks and acorns according to their size!
We also practiced our rhyming words, drawing pictures of them and writing the words.
Making a number line using stones too!
While we were outside it started to rain so we decided to hide under the shelter. We had to work as a team to stop the water from pouring through the holes in the tarpaulin!
Great work P1B!
