Well done 1L! You all looked great today. Have a lovely half term x
This week we have been learning to make 2 digit numbers using straws/lollipop sticks.
We were choosing a number e.g 13 and counting that many straws. Using elastic bands we ‘bundled’ the ten together. This means we can represent 2 digit numbers in tens and ones.
10 + 3 = 13
At home can you have a go at making 2 digit numbers by making a group of 10. You could use straws, lollipop sticks, pencils or anything else you can find!
Once you have practiced making numbers – you could use this strategy for addition.
Now put the tens together to count.
13 + 14 = 27
Have a go at adding 2 digit numbers for your home learning this week. Have a look at my maths too.
Today, we drew a picture of ourselves AND used the keyboard to type our names. We even know how to make a capital letter at the start of our names too.
Wow, 1L, I am impressed!
This week we have been reading the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. Can you tell someone at home what happened in the story?
What was your favourite part of the story? What would you do if a tiger came to your house?
For your home learning this week, we would like you to find out some facts about tigers.
What do they eat? Where do they live? Can they purr?
Draw a picture or write the facts that you found out.
Today, we wrote some wonderful recounts of our day. Here is some of our work. We tried to use some interesting adjectives. Can you spot them? Well done, 1L!
This week we went on a super safari!!
For your home learning this week can you draw a map of the safari park? You could use the map below to help you draw your own. Add as many details as you can!
Once you have finished drawing your map, can you add some labels? What did you see?
You could write some sentences to describe the animals or say which one was your favourite and why?
Today was a fantastic day!
We were so excited on the coach!
What a busy day…
Thank you to all the parents who helped us today! Well done 1L for behaving so well. I hope you enjoyed your day as much as I did!
Today, we used the laptops! We learnt to move the cursor by using the trackpad. We completed some really fun puzzles.
In Year 1, we have been learning the story of Handa’s Surprise! Last week, we wrote the story in our own little books. They are FANTASTIC! We are very proud of ourselves.
Today, we shared our brilliant work with each other.
Here are some photos of 1L and 1S sharing stories!
This week in Maths we have been practicing adding by counting on. We helped Handa from our story count all of the fruit in 2 different baskets.
Can you have a go at adding by counting on at home? You could use cards, dice or a random number generator on the internet to choose numbers to add.
Once you have 2 numbers count each number out. You could use things you find in your home to help you like buttons, counters, beads or raisins.
Then put the biggest number in your head and use your finger to point and count on the next number. Don’t forget to record your number sentences.
7 + 4 =
As a challenge you may want to try adding 3 numbers together.
Don’t forget mymaths and numbots is also available for you to use.
