What an amazing start to the year we’ve had! I’ve been so impressed with how quickly the children have taken to life in year one. The children have loved exploring their new classroom, playing with friends, and settling into their new routines.
This term is all about place value to 10. Through mainly practical activities the children are cementing their understanding of numbers up to 10. This will provide them with the necessary foundations to tackle much bigger numbers in the future!
We have started this term by basing our writing around Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. This thoughtful book encourages us to look around and appreciate all the amazing things we have here on planet Earth.
During COOL time the children take the lead in their learning. From constructing towers, to writing stories, the children use this time to play, explore and learn.
