This week, Year One have been doing some Maths quizzes! We had lots of questions to answer on place value and addition and subtraction. We did so well, what a great bunch of mathematicians!
We have been continuing our learning of the /oe/ sound this week. In one of our phonics lessons, the children volunteered to say the sounds and read the word and recognised which spelling of the /oe/ sound was in the word. The children then sorted the words into the correct spelling category. We are over the moon with the children’s progress and phonics skills!
The children have been learning about online safety and how to keep ourselves safe when online. Recently, we explored messages that may be dangerous and discussed the SMART way to stay safe and understood that it is always important to tell an adult if anything upsets you online. We have also learned that any work that we create online (and on paper!) is owned by you and the best way to show that it is is by making sure your name and the date is on your piece of work. The children’s task on Wednesday was to create a self-portrait on the laptop using paint and to name and date their work to show that they owned it. We had lots of fun learning how to type using the keyboard, how to use the mouse and which buttons to press to help us draw, colour and type words. We had a great time!
To prepare for our Nativity, the children have been doing lots of singing practice. On Thursday, the children learned what a melody was and identified pitch and tempo of the different songs we have been learning. One child even said, “This song has a high pitch because we have to sign high!” We understood that we need to keep our bodies nice and straight to help us get lots of air in our lungs to help us sing confidently!
Have a lovely weekend everyone! Love Miss Walker and Mrs Days x
