Year 1 you have had another fantastic week of home learning with lots of additional celebrations included to mark the 75th anniversary of VE day. Over the week seesaw lit up in blue, white and red as you were busy decorating your houses. I saw lots of bunting, flags and invitations being made for your tea parties. You also made me very hungry whilst I looked at your wonderful baking that you were doing in preparation for your tea parties. We even had many of you interviewing your great grandparents asking them about their experience of VE day and the war. On Friday, I saw your hard work come together as you celebrated VE day with your families making special memories that you can hold onto forever. What a very momentous week it has been!
In phonics, you have been listening to Rosie and doing your fantastic spellings. I am so proud of what amazing readers you are. Remember you are always welcome to show me the reading of your books through seesaw.
In English, you started the week with a SPaG lesson on punctuation. You were all really good at this and understood if a sentence needs a full stop, exclamation mark or question mark at the end. On Tuesday you all researched about VE day. Some of you did this through watching videos, reading online or interviewing your grandparents. The next day you presented the facts you had found out by doing posters, videos or even news reports. It was fantastic and I was so proud of how much information you had learnt about VE day.
In maths, our focus of the week was on multiplication. We have been using our counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to help us multiply equal groups. You had a challenge to do this week where you had to save me from the pirate's dungeon and from the Jolly Rodger by answering lots of multiplication questions. You were all that amazing I even managed to get the golden treasure. This was a tricky concept to grasp but you all made me very proud and we will continue to work on this for the next week.
Keep up with the amazing work superstars, you are making us smile every single day.
Stay safe and take care,
