This week we have been continuing to practice our skills using the track pad but have also been learning how to use the keyboard to type.
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.
1S were inspired by our visit to Port Lympne to create a dinosaur/safari/jungle role play area.
Last week the children were busy designing, writing lists and creating things that can be used in our role play.
They have been working really hard but most impressively working and collaborating really well together. Brilliant team work 1S!
Below are some pictures of what it looks like, now he children can’t wait to start using it today and further explore our topic.
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.
1S had a fantastic time this part in the ‘Sports for Schools’ events this morning. We completed our 4 exercise challenges and enjoyed the assembly by athlete Frederick Afrifa. Take a look at the photos and videos below. What was your favourite exercise? What do you think you were he best at?
Thank you to Miss Little for organising such a brilliant event! 👏 Also just a reminder that all sponsorship needs to be collected online by the 20th October (next Wedensday) – Thank you to everyone that has collected sponsorship money or sponsored someone!
1S have had a wonderful day at Port Lympne! We saw lots of animals, enjoyed the bumpy safari truck and stepped back in time to see dinosaurs.
Take a look at the pictures below to tell someone at home all about your day. What was your favourite part?
Thank you to all of the adults that helped on the trip. We really appreciate your support.
Here are some pictures from the safari.
Here are some more pictures of the safari truck ride.
Below are some videos from the safari – sound on to hear how excited the children were.
We then had lunch which everyone was looking forward to.
We just managed to see some meerkats before they disappeared into their burrow.
Then we went to the dinosaur forest! 🦖 🦕
Just before getting on the coach, we were lucky enough to spot the lions. Can you spot the cubs?
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?
We are on the coach and on our way to the safari park! We are all excited and talking about what we are looking forward to seeing! It is going to be a wonderful day with lots to see.
The children will have so many things to tell you about their day. 🦁🐯🦏🦓
In 1S we are really looking forward to our visit to Port Lympne Safari Park tomorrow!
Today we have been looking at the map of he safari park and thinking about the rules for tomorrow. We wrote some rules altogether and then wrote them in our books. We also added some of our own.
We have also been imagining what a safari Park might look like. We used the pens to draw enclosures and roads in our very own safari park.
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!
