Good Evening Class 1!

Another extremely busy week this week in class 1, I can’t believe we have gotten through two weeks of the half-term already, due to the short nature of the half-term we will be half way through come next Wednesday…mind blown! This week the children have continued to work incredibly hard and have really enjoyed their history work on the Seaside, I am really looking forward to next Thursday as we will be having a special guest visitor join us to discuss their childhood experiences of seaside holidays in the 1950s and 60s. Our visitor is very excited too!


In maths the children have continued with their place value unit. They have investigated 17.18.19 and 20 as well as one more and one less and the number line to 20. The children have thrived in this unit and displayed their understanding with great pride, the place value units are really important as they provide the foundation for building their future maths skills; therefore their solid understand at this stage puts them in good standing for future learning. Next week, will see the conclusion of our place value unit and the commencement of our Addition and Subtraction unit.


In English we have continued our story writing unit linked to; The Pirates Next Door. The children have enjoyed creating character descriptions and learning how to use suffixes to convert singular nouns to plurals.
