Welcome to Otter Class!
Well done to all the children in Otter Class for joining Year 1 so brilliantly and settling in so well! We've been super busy learners so far this year.
First we read 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. We have loved learning about the Boy and the Penguin and now they would like to come to Tweseldown and see what else we have learning about! We have been practising writing sentences about all the lessons we do in school to go in an information leaflet ready for their arrival! We've tried super hard to remember all our full stops, finger spaces and capital letters, and we've even had a go using adjectives and conjunctions!
In Maths we've been using our number knowledge and counting to have a to have a go at solving addition number sentences. We have used lots of different resources such as counters and Numicon to help us find the answer. We have made sure to check our answers are right by making sure the answer is bigger than our starting number.
In Geography so far this term we have been looking at aerial photos and using our observational skills to create maps of our school! We've drawn objects in our classroom and the playground and made different keys so people can see what's on our maps!
We have had lots of fun starting our learning in Year 1 and we can't wait to see what else we are going to learn about during the rest of the year.
