Our Year 1 children have had a brilliant week exploring their senses. They used fantastic adjectives to describe how the mystery objects felt in the feely boxes and then loved revealing the hidden items! They learnt new vocabulary in Geography and can now identify human and physical features. They have been estimating in Mathematics and writing their numbers in digits and words.
The children loved dressing up as the characters from our book Grandad’s Island, hot seating each other with effective questions. Our Phonics lessons came alive as we became pirates, revising the ‘arrr’ sound and finding words with this sound for the treasure chest.
