Incredible Instructions!

Class 4 were really busy this morning writing some incredible instructions. They wrote a title, a what you need list, used numbers, time words and even added a top tip. Miss Wright is so proud of your determination! Take a look at our sentence stacking. IMG_1508

Nativity Costumes

Our dress rehearsal is on Monday 11th December. The year 1 children will be part of the choir and singing one piece on their own. We would like the children to wear black clothes (we will be making star headbands in school) as their costume. This can be black leggings, skirts, tights, trousers, jumpers, long sleeve or short sleeve t-shirts. We would really appreciate costumes in a named bag as soon as possible. Thank you for your support. The year 1 team.

We can add!

This is Robot and he is very greedy! He has two hands (two parts) that hold lots of goodies. When he puts his hands (the two parts) to his mouth, he eats all the goodies up in his tummy. The two parts make a whole. Take a look at our part part whole robots. Miss WrightIMG_1448 IMG_1449 IMG_1450 IMG_1451 IMG_1452 IMG_1453 IMG_1454 IMG_1455 IMG_1456 IMG_1457 IMG_1458 IMG_1459 IMG_1460

What are instructions and how do they help us?

We started to think about instructions today and what we use them for. The Parrots already knew a lot about instructions – we use them when playing games, when building houses and keeping safe. We played some games by following instructions and thought about how the instructions were helpful – numbers to help us follow the steps in order, pictures to show us how to assemble the game and a list of equipment. Parrots, can you spot instructions at home? IMG_1462Miss Wright

Pushing and Pulling

IMG_1475 This afternoon we thought about forces and in particular, pushing and pulling. We sorted objects according to whether they involve pushing, pulling or both. Our challenge now is to think of the best way of rescuing Old Bear using a push or a pull. Great work Parrots, Miss Wright

Super Writers!

This morning the Parrots completed an independent retelling of Old Bear. They used capital letters, full stops and even exclamation marks! They used adjectives and ‘and’ to join 2 sentences. I was so proud of your determination and enthusiasm. You are all superstars! Miss Wright

Ordering Numbers

We have been ordering numbers this week. We have been using our knowledge of tens and ones to help. If you would like to do some more ordering at home, this interactive game is great. Miss Wright
