Our Topic this Half term is Toys. We have been looking at New toys, Old toys, Bikes and Teddies. We have been on trips with Magic Grandad into the past to find out how toys have changed over the years.
In Literacy we have been trying hard to sound out words in our writing and learning our key words to help us with our reading. This week we have read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and have been thinking of interesting words to describe Baby Bear, Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear!
In Numeracy we have been learning our Number bonds to 5 and 10 using our fingers to help us! How many down? How many up? We have been recognising coins, making amounts and giving totals. We have been learning to record addition and subtraction sums, recognising number names and beginning to understand the place value of numbers eg 11 = 1 ten and 1 unit!
In the Computer suite we have been learning to write our names using the shift key for a capital letter and drawing some fabulous pictures using a variety of tools on Dazzle and 2Simple toolkit.
In Art we have been looking at Sculptures. We have been inspired by the work of Andy Goldworthy to make natural sculptures out of leaves, stones and shells.
Our SEAL topic this half term is New Beginnings we have been finding out about our friends how we are the same and different; how many of us had brothers or sisters, pets and what our favourite foods were. We have had Friendship Week, we played games, enjoyed circle times and visited our Nursery buddies.
We had a brilliant 'Bike it' day, riding our bikes to school and finding out about keeping safe on our bikes. We went on some walks in the local area and found out about 'Road Safety' with a team from Sefton.
This term we have been very busy getting used to our new Year 1 classroom and teachers but we have been having a great time. We hope you enjoy looking at our photographs and seeing some of the fun activities we have been doing!
