Wednesday 24th June

Good morning Year 1's. I hope you have enjoyed your week of learning so far. I am really looking forward seeing some of you today.smiley If you are not returning know that we are thinking of you and that we will still be learning the same things... just in different places! yes We are thinking of you all,  and although not together in class we are all doing very similar learning activities. It will be a hot day today so you may like to do some of your activites outside in the sunshine. I'm hoping Mr Davies will have the pool up when I get back home so I can do some more deep pool diving from on board my pink flamingo!!! I think I will need to cool down after a hot day at school!wink

The Wednesday Word...


Will today be led by Mrs Armstrong-Boyle. The word is 'Faith.' Follow the link below to our video page; just look under the 'Wednesday Word' section. I also include a copy of the Wednesday Word leaflet. 

Our Literacy Activity


Following on from reading Dougal's Deep Sea Diary last week we are going to have some descriptive fun today. We are going to make a suitcase that would have been suitable for Dougal to take on his diving holiday. If you would like to listen to the story again to give you ideas about what Dougal may have packed, here is a link to last week's  page...

To help us to describe the items we pack into Dougal's suitcase, let's remind ourselves of how to use them...

Today we will be using your knowledge of tens and units to work out different ways of showing numbers. These may be represented with numicon pictures, money or  rods of tens and units. You are going to cut out the pictures shown below, then picking two at a time place them onto your 'Compare amounts' grid and decide which sign you will put in the middle... 

< less the,   >greater then or = is equal to...


Once you have decided record them in your book by sticking the pictures in your green book and recording as follows...

The picture cards are in your latest pack. I cannot seem to find the hard copy on my memory stick, so if you don't have a copy pick cards from my pictures to draw into your book instead. My apologies; they seem to have vanished!cool

Our Topic Work


 Please see our separate topic page for our additional curriculum areas. I have added a couple of extra activites on; one a new unit of Aboriginal Art and an additional Science unit on 'Animal Habitats.'smiley This afternoon you may still need time to complete your Dougal suitcase activity. You may like to paint your items in the bag and make Dougal's suitcase very attractive on the outside too. Don't forget to attach a label with his name on and perhaps his destination!heart


You may also like to spend some time enjoying the sunshine. Why not take your art or science work outside? That's what we will be doing at school. 

Have a lovely day!yes
