This week, the Year 1 children have been consolidating the skills learned during R-time lessons; where they work collaboratively using good manners, showing respect to others and sharing. As a fun activity children made a telescope and using their imagination they had to describe a wild animal they see to their partner. They really enjoyed this activity.
We are currently reviewing the RWI programme Set 3 sounds and we have enjoyed the reading and extended writing activities. Even though the children have gone through these sounds once, they need to have a good knowledge and speedy recall of these sounds. Every day they are learning new words with these sounds to expand their vocabulary.
In Maths lessons this week we started to learn Multiplication. The children enjoy using different concrete materials to explore how to make and add equal groups and rows. Great effort, children!
The teachers continue to be amazed at the resilience of our students and their enthusiasm toward their own learning. Keep it up year 1.
