We continue to be very busy in Class Andreae in all aspects of school life. Our Year 1 children have been dedicating lots of time to rehearsing for their parts in the school Nativity. Thank you to all of the Year 1 parents who have supported this by helping with preparations and those who are able to attend the performances.
In Literacy, we have been collecting ideas, structure and vocabulary in order to make our instruction planners fantastic. We are now experts in knowing what the key features of instructions are and we are now ready to put all our knowledge to the test during our ‘Hot Write’ this week. Ask your child all about bossy verbs and be ready to be told what to do and how to do it!
In Maths we have been investigating shape and becoming experts in the key features of 2D and 3D shapes. We extended our learning by looking for shapes in our environment. Can you help your child find as many shapes as possible on the way to and from school?
We all really enjoyed our Diwali Day where we learned a lot about what the festival is about and how it is celebrated. We practiced following instructions when we made our Diwali greetings cards, Rangoli patterns and paper lanterns.
Thank you to all those parents who have been reading each day at home with your child. We have seen the number of regular readers increasing over the last two weeks, this is wonderful news!
Finally I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas.
