The children have had an amazing start to Year 1! They have settled into their new learning environment and daily routines well.
In Phonics, the children have been continuing to learn and consolidate set 1 sounds and are now beginning to learn their set 2 and set 3 sounds. They have been using this knowledge to write about the Read Write Inc texts their group has read during the week.
During Maths, the children have been exploring place value as they learn and consolidating their knowledge of numbers to 10. They have been counting forward and counting back to find one more and one less of a given number.
The children have also been investigating 2d and 3d shapes. They have sorted the shapes based on their properties, hunted for shapes in the environment, created buildings using different 3d shapes and used mathematical language to describe them such as vertices, edges, corners, sides and faces.
During history the children have been exploring timelines extending back to Victorian times.
During science the children have been exploring everyday materials by sorting and examining their properties.
In personal development the children have been learning about relationships and what makes a good friend. They have used role play and circle time to show their understanding of their emotions and how their actions might affect others.
