Favourite Food

 

A huge thank you to all the children and their grownups who sent in their photos of their favourite food. They are currently on display outside our classroom (above the pegs). The next time you're in school,come and have a look at the wide variety of foods. If you've not yet sent in your photo/picture, there is still a little bit more time left. 

English

 

We have started our exciting Year 1 writing journey looking at the classic picture book 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We have used this text to help us to remember the days of the week and begin to learn to spell these. we have enjoyed memorising the different foods that the caterpillar ate each day.

 

We have also been learning about the countries of the UK and their capital cities. To coincide with our topic, we have also tasted some traditional foods from each country.

 

We had great fun tasting and came up with some fantastic adjectives to describe what we could taste, smell, feel and see.

Maths 

 

The children have  had a great start back, and have been really busy in maths. In Week 1 we read Eric Carl's  'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' in which the children had to order correctly the days of the week; The children also did some counting and addition. This week we have been focusing on number bonds to 10 (perhaps you could try this at home). We have been using 'Maths of the Day' activities, counters and 10 frames to do lots of practical activities.
