Year 1

Welcome to Year 1’s weekly blog.

It has been such a pleasant few weeks getting to know your child. I’d like to thank all parents and children for such a warm welcome to Hartsbourne. I know it will be a great year.

Week of 9th October 2017

This week we have been investigating properties of 3D shapes. We really enjoyed identifying all the 3D shapes that we see all around us in the classroom and we made great connections with the 3D objects we see at home. We investigated how many edges, faces and vertices each 3D shape had.

In history, we learned some more interesting facts about Sir Ernest Shackleton. He certainly was such a brave explorer!

In art, we discussed four famous artists and practised drawing our portraits using different art materials.

We are still learning how to use our laptops. We are developing our computer skills each week and today we practised some skills on the Paint programme.

 

Week of 2nd October 2017

This week we have been learning how to count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. We love to practice our counting skills outside of the classroom!

 

We have also been investigating different types of musical instruments, we have been learning how each instrument looks and sounds differently.

Today, we participated in Red, White & Blue Day to show our support to the Army forces.

Over the last few weeks, your child has been getting acquainted to Year 1 classroom rules and routines. Encourage your child to discuss all the wonderful things they learn in school every day.
