Making breadsticks in 1G

Today we made breadsticks – inspired by the story of ‘The Little Red Hen

Yesterday we tried different types of bread; pitta bread, a wrap, a bagel and brioche bread. We voted on our favourite type of bread.

Today we followed a simple recipe and had lots of fun kneading the dough and then rolling out our breadsticks. We REALLY enjoyed eating them this afternoon – so much so that we forgot to take any photos of our finished breadsticks!! (I hope 1L have a photo we can borrow πŸ™‚ )

1L visit Catford Library

On Tuesday, we visited Catford Library. We enjoyed reading lots of books with our friends and independently. The librarian read us two stories too.

We chose 5 books to borrow and enjoy back at school.

You can borrow more books from the library if you visit with your families! You will get your own library card. It’s a great place to visit at the weekends or in the holidays.

This week we would like you to practise these common exception words. Read them, say them out loud and write each word three times.

After practising the words, ask an adult to test you to see if you can remember how to spell them.

Then think of a sentence for each word. For example: The big frog has green spots.

World Book Day in 1G

Today was World Book Day at Holbeach! The whole day was dedicated to celebrating the joy of reading and enjoying books.

We had a special assembly where we marveled at amazing photos of the teachers reading with their pets, in the garden, in the bath or in the gym!

We had fun with some D.E.A.R time – Drop Everything And Read !!! The children loved having to stop immediately grab a book and sit down to read it πŸ™‚

Today we enjoyed buddy reading with children from the Nursery and Purple Class. It was great for 1G to be leaders and share books with children younger than themselves.

1G’s last day with the ducks

1G have LOVED every minute of having the ducklings here with us in the classroom.

It has been a fantastic experience for the children over the last two weeks.

They have patiently waited and then watched these ducklings hatch from their eggs! They have learned how they should be looked after and what they need. They have been brave holding them and stroking them, at all times showing how gentle and caring they are. They have watched them grow, change, become noisier and get even fluffier! They have had great laughs watching them swim, dive and they have even been splashed!

Well done 1G, you have done a great job looking after the ducklings! We will all miss the ducklings and hope they have fun back at the farm πŸ™‚

Year 1 Home Learning

This week it is World Book Day on Friday 3rd March 2023 so.. year 1 home learning this week is all about reading!

Please listen to your child reading every day, for 10 minutes. This helps their reading skills but also improves their language and builds their confidence πŸ™‚

Don’t forget to visit Bug Club for more books to read! Look out for the bug on each page to answer a comprehension question as you are reading. Your login is inside your reading record. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?e=-1&c=0

This week we would like you to write a book review. You can choose the book that you chose a character from, for dressing up! For example if you dress up as Goldilocks then write a review of the book ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’!

Triangles

This week in maths we have been focusing on triangles. We learnt that all triangles have straight lines. We talked about whether a Dorito was a triangle, we decided that it wasn’t because its sides aren’t all straight. We looked at triangles in art and architecture. We learnt that triangles have three angles. We used our hands to feel the definition of an angle and played with the idea of creating rotations.

We used concrete resources to play around with: length of lines and joining three lines together.

Ducklings in 1G..home for the weekend!

The ducklings have had a lovely weekend at Miss George’s house! They have had lots of naps under their heat pad. They have had many visitors some young and some old, some furry and some human! The ducklings even had a little splash around on Saturday night in a warm bath.

Fluffy Duffy, Biscuit, Cutie and Dinky are very excited to get back to school and see all the children in 1G tomorrow! πŸ™‚
