We have had another super week in Year One!
Roald Dahl day
We explored the story, The Twits and visited our own Twits' Diner in class! The children enjoyed building their own Diner in the Construction Area and creating Mr Twit's messy beard in the Messy Area! We had a great time.
We have been busy reading the story 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon
Our activities have included;
- Sequencing the events
- Building a space shelter
- Building a rocket to help Beegu get home
- Designing Beegu's planet
This week we have been focusing on number skills. The children are enjoyed revisiting the Numicon pieces to 10 and created their own number line. We have also been focusing on numbers up to 100 and have practised counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.
Can you count to 100 in 2's, 5's and 10's?
Can you teach a family member how to count to 100 in 10's?

What another super week in Year One!
We have continued to work on our number skills this week with particular focus on our number formation. We have had great fun learning new songs and practising how our numbers are formed using our magic fingers.
Our activities have included:
Creating a number ‘washing’ line
Creating a number snake
Rolling dice and threading the correct number of beads
Painting our own 2 part model to show different number calculations
We explored the story of Beegu further and developed our understanding of capital letters and full stops in our sentence writing.
Other activities included:
Making a playdoh model of Beegu
Painting a picture of Beegu
In our own words, explaining how Beegu may have felt in certain stages of the story.
In exciting news, we received a very special letter from NASA detailing our learning missions to become fully certified astronauts! Our first learning mission is to learn all about the life of Neil Armstrong and why he was a hero.
Our activities included:
Designing and labelling Neil Armstrong’s rocket
Building a Lego rocket
