Welcome to Year 1
We are so impressed with how the children have settled into Year 1. They have been really eager to show us they can do.
In the first week the children got to familiarize themselves with their new classrooms and came up with classrooms rules that they felt would allow everyone to enjoy Year 1.
Over the last couple of weeks the children have been showing their amazing handwriting skills by learning and practicing letters belonging to the “Curly Club letters” – c,o,a,d,g,q,s,e and f. The children chose how they practiced their letters from using glittered sand to using coloured pencils and highlighters.
As well as this they have been using their phonic skills to spell words, label pictures and have ago at writing captions and sentences
They have also been looking at place value and choosing how to make and show different numbers and correctly ordering them.
