Another week of Goldilocks activities and this week we made porridge. We had different toppings to choose from and all decided which we each thought was “just right”. Some people even tasted porridge for the very first time and loved it. In literacy we have been learning how to write instructions and Year 1 wrote the instructions for making porridge.
Lots of you have sent in celebrations photographs which are now in the children’s books and some on display. They are wonderful and the children enjoyed sharing them and talking about their special times. Father Declan came to visit us on Friday and he spoke to us about celebrations in church and loved listening to the children sharing their stories.
Welcome back to school and a Happy New Year! We are continuing our topic "Will you read me a story?" For the next four weeks where we will be focussing on traditional stories starting this week with "Goldilocks and The Three Bears". We looked at how lots of stories begin in the same way with "once upon a time" and we have looked at capital letters and which lower case letters they represent. We have written speech bubbles for the different characters and sequenced the different parts of the story writing full sentences. In maths we are learning to tell the time. "When the big hand is at the top it's something o'clock and the little hand tells us us what o'clock" - this has helped us to remember o'clock times. Half past is a little bit more challenging but Y1 have been doing really well with both o'clock and half past. Some children have even started to wear a watch so that they can keep telling me what time it is😃
