This week in Literacy we have been looking at the book 'The snail and the whale' and other Julia Donaldson books. The children have written a recount about the snails journey. As we are quickly approaching Year 2, it is important that the children are consistently writing sentences using a capital letter, full stop and finger spaces. The children also need to understand and use correctly, nouns, adjectives and verbs. Any practise of this at home would be brilliant!
In Maths we have been looking at arrays, identifying columns and rows. This is a very difficult concept for the children to understand. We have been working practically with objects to represent the stories - 'there are 3 rows, 4 counters in each row'/ 'there are 4 columns, 6 sweets in each column'.
In topic we have been learning all about 'Lillian Bilocca', and how someone from the past has made a difference. The children have created posters, factfiles and a paintings all about Lillian. Their knowledge is fantastic!
