Year 1 started off the week by being given a problem to solve! Miss Heywood was very upset! She had lost a toy that she had brought into school to wrap. It was a present for her niece's birthday this weekend. Year 1 were desperate to help Miss Heywood find the toy she had lost. First, we searched the year 1 classroom and the atrium to see if we could find it. Unfortunately, nothing was found. Next, as a class, we brainstormed ideas of what we could do to help. We came up with the brilliant idea of creating lost posters to put up around school in the hope that someone has seen the toy. It was very important for us to know what the toy looked like. Luckily Miss Heywood had a photograph we could look at. Together, we looked at the photograph and thought of appropriate adjectives to describe the toy. We discussed how it is important to understand what an adjective is, in the build up to writing sentences for our lost posters. The children were amazing at thinking of different descriptions.
In maths this week, we have been sorting objects into groups and explaining our thinking. Some items were grouped by colour, shape and size.
Here are a few photographs of what else we have been up to this week. We have written book reviews, represented numbers in different ways, used our phonic knowledge to sound out words, completed a tricky word hunt and have created teddy bears using split pins. It has been very busy.
Well done to our Star of the Week winner!
Here are the Rainbow Challenges for next week.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. See you on Monday.
