As an introduction to their history work, Year 1 have been watching Starman floating around in a car in space.
How did he get there? Where is he going? How is he floating along? Why is he wearing a helmet? Is he real? Were just some of the questions the children asked.
As a new approach in Numeracy the children have been following the 4 ways above of how to understand a question. This method offers deeper understanding and helps with problem solving, and reasoning. Here is a sample of work when looking at improper fractions.
Thanks, Mr Barker.
As part of their work in maths this week, Year 1 will be focusing on numbers to 50.
Here is a great video for practising counting forwards and backwards within 50.
Year 1 had a visit from Mrs Hallows (Henry's mum) on Tuesday. She introduced them to an exciting new craze that everyone can take part in.
It involves decorating pebbles and hiding them for others to find in the Tameside area.
Henry and his mum showed us some fantastic pebbles that they have painted, which they are going to hide over...
We had a lovely morning celebrating the achievements of some of our children in Key Stage One and Early Years. Nursery and Year 2 shared a song. Nursery sang along to the talented Miss O'Connor on ukulele. Year 2 signed a hymn they had been learning in class. Congratulations to all the children who received an award!
