Writing poems, singing, counting meerkats and designing chimp havens, our Year 1s have been a busy bunch this week.

How many meerkats can you see? How many eyes can you see altogether? These are questions we have answered in Maths this week. We have read the story, Meerkat Mail and created lots of counting activities. We have been counting meerkats in 2s and counting the words on each post card sent by Sunny. As we have become more independent with 2 digit numbers, we have started to count in 2s and 5s.

This week, our focus in Literacy has been poems. We have been rhyming words and ended the week by writing our very own poem about elephants! Year One thought about what they can see, hear and feel when they think of elephants. We created some fantastic poems, and these were all very individual to each child.

We have begun to think about why the Kingdom of God is so important by looking at how important a mustard seed is. Using Pic Collage for the first time was exciting. We combined photos of us holding something special from God's world as we are learning more about this story after the half term holiday.

On Monday our singing celebration showcased all of our singing with Mrs Swan and Miss O'Shea this term. What a talented bunch Year 1 are!

On Friday, we thought about what makes chimpanzees happy. This prompted a lovely conversation about what makes us happy... "We get love from a hug!" — Kian. "Cuddling my big elephant toy makes me happy." — Sol. We talked about how chimps have feelings, just like we do. The children worked very hard and designed a haven for working chimpanzees to go to retire, and I certainly think they would make the chimps extremely happy!

Have a lovely half term holiday,

Mrs Pointon and Miss O'Shea.
