Term 1

Year 1 have been excited to return to school and show their new teacher their fabulous learning. We have been practising our writing by drawing pictures and labelling them, writing our names and spelling tricky words. In Maths we have been ordering numbers to 20, counting in 2s and measuring our heights – we have grown lots over the summer. We have also been enjoying practising our sounds by reading some of our favourite stories.

Over the last 2 weeks we have been continuing our number work, counting out amounts and then ordering them from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest. We have also ordered numbers to 50.

In English, we have read our story of Beegu and created and learnt a class story map. We then worked in groups to retell the story using puppets.

Our Topic is 'Me, Myself and I' and we have been enjoying drawing around each other and labelling our body parts.
