Week ending: Friday 24th January 2020

In literacy this week we have been working towards writing our own rainforest version of ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. The children went on a sensory trail in the quiet playground to help them think about where they might go in a rainforest. They have really worked hard on some beautiful story maps, and have now begun writing their own story.

On Tuesday we had forest school, and the children had a wonderful time toasting marshmallows around the campfire. In science we have been investigating different materials and seeing how magnets work.

In numeracy we have been continuing our work in subtraction; looking at lots of different methods and trying them all. We have also been bringing back our number bonds to 10 to help us partition numbers using ten frames.

Explorer bear is still out and about, and he has already come back with some amazing stories. The children are really excited about what they will do when they take him home.

Finally, just a reminder that parents evenings are approaching on Tuesday 11th and Thursday 13th of February. Please book the slot you want quickly to avoid disappointment!

Have a great weekend,

The Year One Team
