Year 1 Our Week

Home » News » Year 1 Our Week

This week we have been focusing on number stories and subtraction in numeracy. We have used Numicon and used Numicon covers to help us. If you have a set of numicon at home and would like a set of covers, please let me know on Tuesday and I will send a set home with your child. Please see this week's homework for more information about our numeracy work this week. We then made our own numeracy stories which involved people on buses, at Playworld and in Africa, to name a few! We know there are three parts to a sum so we worked out we needed three parts to our stories. Ten children went to a Playworld party. 5 had to go home. How many were still there? Can you make up your own at home to show off your learning?

In literacy, we have been getting to know Mr Grinling the Lighthouse Keeper. Thank you to Amber for bringing in two of your Mr Grinling stories. We read The Lighthouse Keeper's Picnic and came up with our own healthy snacks for Mr Grinling as Mrs Grinling was getting a bit worried about his health after eating all of her scrumptious food! We wrote letters to him and posted them in the post box so hopefully we will have a reply next week! We linked this to our science work this week on planting too, as we found out about which foods come from plants and trees.

We then read The lighthouse Keeper's Catastrophe where Mr Grinling locks the key in the lighthouse and locks Hamish the cat inside! A disaster happens then when the seagulls knock the spare key into the sea and it sinks to the bottom. It looks like Mr Grinling wont get back to the lighthouse in time to switch the light on. The children then found out all about lighthouses and why they are so important. Children, can you share your learning about lighthouses? What do they do? Where will you find them? What happens if the light isn't on? Luckily Mr Grinling managed to get back inside the lighthouse to turn the light on so the ships were safe!

We have written our own Lighthouse stories too, which were very impressive. We have great imaginations!

Hamish the Cat and his diary is on his way round to all your houses for a visit. So far he has enjoyed trampolining at Zander's house and his favourite tea at Emma's house — fish fingers which she said were "purr-fect!!" I wonder what he will get up to this weekend?

Enjoy the weekend,

Mrs Rogers
