Maths Groups

Maths Groups is a favourite activity for many of our Year 1 students. This week we have been focusing on subtraction so our activities were all involving take away from either ten or twenty. Here are some photos which show some of the fun we have been having.

Dr Seuss

Check out some of our artworks inspired by characters from the Dr Seuss books we have been reading.

Learning in Year 1

We have been very excited to watch our Silkworms grow over the last few weeks. Year 1 has learnt the Scientific name for Silkworms - Bombyx Mori and we have learnt about their life cycle. We have watched them change from eggs to larva (caterpillars) and now some of them are beginning to pupate (cocoon). It is very exciting to come into the class each morning and discover what new changes have happened overnight.
Year 1 got to hold and touch the larva this week and were fascinated by the legs and pro-legs (false legs) on the insects. They also tickled our hands when they were moving on us.
Here are some photos of our silkworms and some of the work we have been doing as part of our study in Science and life cycles so far this term.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your willingness to help in our classroom this Term.
We have had such a great response that it has been hard to fit you all into the times you indicated you were avaiable.
A roster has been emailed to all necessary parents. Please check it carefully. If you are unable to make it to your weekly time for any reason please let your class teacher know and if possible, arrange a swap with someone else for that day.
Parent Help will start this week (Week 5) if you are able to make it.

Parent teacher interviews are next Tuesday 20th February and Thursday 22nd February. If you have signed up to meet with your child's teacher then you would have received a confirmation email. We are aware that there is an error on sentral regarding the teacher on that class. Please continue to book your time online and disregard any errors. You will be meeting with your child's class teacher at the allocated time.

This week we have been investigating 2D shapes. We have had a lot of fun playing activities in class such as bingo, guess my shape and roll a shape.
