Week beginning 21.9.20
We are starting to settle into our class and have had a great week.
We have been finding one more and one less in Maths and have had great fun using different resources, such as number lines and dice, to help us with this.
In English we have been learning how to write captions and labels. The children helped Miss Dunn to find out where her dog Chester had explored in Cronton and they were able to label a map showing this. The children really enjoyed this and we got to work on our map skills. Mrs Musil would be impressed!
We have been working hard in Science to find out where our paper comes from. We were able to identify the differences between paper and wood and recall the process of how paper is made.
In RE we have had lots of fun investigating where our food comes from in the lead up to Harvest. The children were tasked with the job of making posters to show where the food in their homes are from. I have enjoyed seeing these posters on Seesaw. Check out our Twitter page (crontony1) to see some of these wonderful posters.
Our school celebrated European Day of Languages on Friday and Year 1 looked at the country Ireland- I wonder why...
We had an amazing time learning some of the Irish language, watching Gaelic football, listening to traditional Irish music and completing a puzzle on countries in Europe.
Week beginning 7.9.20.
We had a lovely week and it was great to see the children settling in to their new classroom.
In English we have been looking at labels and captions. The children did a great job at identifying labels and even being able to use their own labels.
We have been practising our Phonics everyday and are working hard to consolidate digraphs that they learned in Reception.
In Maths we have been focusing on Place Value up to 10. The children have worked extremely hard this week on sorting objects. They found this quite tricky at first, but practise makes perfect!
In Geography we have been looking at Our School. We learned why we use a postcode and an address. It would be good to talk to your child about your address and why you need to know your address.
In Science we have been looking at recycling. The children did a fantastic job explaining how paper is made. Test your child's knowledge and ask them if they can recall this process.
