Role of Excellence 


Nadha: for taking on teacher’s feedback to improve her writing 

Nishani: for trying her best to write independent sentences using adverbs.

This week, Year 1 have been learning to skip count in tens. We made groups of ten and counted our collection of conkers. Wow! What a lot of conkers we have! We used concrete resources to make different numbers more than 10 which was very interesting.

Year 1 have been so busy this past week. For Book Week we had a shadow puppet show for Aladdin and The Magic Lamp; for science we investigated which material were transparent and opaque; in Geography we created a map of our classroom. What a lot of learning we have done!

A very happy Diwali to all of you who are celebrating. We in Year 1 have done a lot of work around the story of Rama and Sita. We learned how good wins over evil. We thought about how we can be good and how we should never be evil.

Year 1 had a fantastic trip to Bekonscot Model Village and felt like giants!

In Year 1 we have been learning how to make 10. We used cubes to find out the different number bonds for 10.

In Maths this week we have been using concrete resources for learning to count in twos.

It has been lovely to see all the children settling down well to a new academic year. The children are slowly getting used to the new routine.
