Welcome to Mole Class!
Wow nearly half term already! We have had so much fun in Year 1 so far! Well done to everyone for following our new school rules to keep us safe. We have tried really hard with social distancing and washing our hands carefully.
At the start of term we all agreed to follow our class charter. Here are our rules in Mole Class:
- Be helpful and supportive
- Be careful with equipment
- Always tidy our classroom
- Be kind to everyone
- Listen to grownups
Our Theme in Year 1 this half term is Toys. We will be reading 'Lost in the Toy Museum' and helping Bunting find his friends. Along the way we will be adapting the story to create a new one! Later in the term we get into the festive spirit with 'Harvey Slumfenburgers Christmas Present' where we help Father Christmas deliver presents with the new modes of Transport!
In Maths we will be using pictures and physical objects to help us gain a deeper understanding of addition and subtraction. We will be solving missing number problems and applying these skills to new reasoning problems.
In the afternoons we will be designing and creating a toy box for Bunting and his friends and investigating seasonal changes outdoors as we get closer to Christmas. In History we will compare modern and old toys, looking at how they have changed since our Grandparents were younger.
