This week KS1 have been investigating using their senses. They were given a section of items which they had to use their 5 senses to identify what they were. The children thoroughly enjoyed the investigation and were very surprised by the items they tried to guess. We have also been looking at our friendships in PSHE and how we do have fall outs or disagreements but this does not mean that we are no longer friends. We also identify ways that we can make these situations occur infrequently by understand how our friends could be feeling and what to say to them.
We hope you have a lovely weekend and we are planning more exciting activities for next week.
Another lovely week in KS1, we have been very busy working on our place value in maths thinking about the different ways we can use our whole part models and resources to make numbers.
In Geography we have been looking at the amount of traffic in the roads around the school at different times of the day. All the children took part in our research and drew charts to represent our data which we had collated from counting the number of cars parked around the school.
We have also had a lovely time sharing our library books with our friends recommending our favourite parts and illustrations.
This week in our Maths lessons we have been looking at place value. We have been using a range of different resources to help support our understanding of number and the number system.
During our Geography lessons this week we have been looking at our local area and the features that have been used to make us safe on the way to and from school, from the pictures you can see that we found lots of signs and road markings outside school so that we can all cross safely and drivers are aware that there may be children crossing.
Hopefully everyone received their new homework books this week, the teachers can not wait to see which tasks you have completed next Friday.
It was lovely to see so many of you this morning at our meet the parents. Below is the Powerpoint for those who were unable to attend and for your reference. If you have any further questions please feel free to speak with one of us in Key Stage 1.
It has been lovely to have all the children coming back to school with such a positive and enthusiastic mind set. We will update this blog each week with information and photos of what we have been up to and what is coming up. Here are some photos from this week.
