Myself and Miss Horgan have really enjoyed seeing all of the children return to school...and I know the children have certainly enjoyed seeing their friends again and resuming their learning in class!
Our English work this term has focused on the text 'The Snail and the Whale', the children loved this story as it follows the exciting journey of a Snail and Whale across the world! The children have created story maps, diary entries and even wrote their own alternative ending to the story. I have been super impressed with their writing this term and have seen great progression!
In maths this term we focused on number revision to help the children regain their confidence due to the lockdown! We revised more than/less than, addition and subtraction and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. I was really impressed with how much the children could remember! In topic this term we looked at all things 'Under the Sea', the children created lifecycles for sea turtles and enjoyed some great art lessons!
What else happened this Term?
Squirrel class have had another very busy term in Year 1.
Unfortunately, visitors have been limited in school due to Government restrictions which have been put in place to keep us as safe as possible from the virus. However, PE lessons were permitted to continue safely in school and our provider was able to organise an in-school PE competition. All of the children enjoyed taking part in the different activities and it was great to see everyone active again!
