We have had a very successful start to the year in Bumblebee Class. We have all settled well into year 1 and have been doing lots of excellent learning.
Our first topic this year is 'Let's go to the ball!'. We have learnt to retell the story of Cinderella using a story map and actions. We have also learnt an alternative version of the story of Cinderella, a story called Prince Cinders. We have found this story very funny, especially as the dirty fairy isn’t quite as good at magic as the fairy godmother in Cinderella. We have been able to talk about the similarities and differences between the two stories and sequence the story from beginning to end.
In Maths we have been learning all about place value. We have been focusing on numbers up to 30. We have been learning to read and write these numbers and how to represent them using different resources, such as Numicon, Base 10, coins and number lines. We have completed lots of different activities and used our reasoning skills to problem solve and deepen our understanding.
We're really looking forward to our end of topic ball, we can’t wait to practise our dance moves and show off the crowns we are making for the occasion.
It’s really important that we remember to practise our reading every day at home along with our keywords. Remember books can be changed any day!
