We’ve had a short but very busy week in Year 1, culminating in a wonderful Peace Day today. We began Peace Day in the homeroom by engaging in a craft activity devoted to the concept of peace. We thought about what peace means to each of us and what makes us feel peaceful. All of Year 1 had a special singing class with Ms. Betsy where we sang songs about peace and danced. In the afternoon we marched in the Peace Parade around the school and we attended the Peace Assembly.
In Math this week we have continued working on recognising and writing numerals and one to one correspondence when counting out objects. The students are working hard to form the numerals correctly when they write them, making sure that they start each number at the top.
In Language this week we have continued thinking about the letters and the sounds they make. We focused in particular on the letter P. The children practiced writing this letter correctly and they brainstormed items starting with this letter, or even ending with this letter.
We had fun with our Year 5 Buddies on Wednesday afternoon. We invited them to our classroom and we reflected together about How can we have peace at school. The Year 1 children really enjoy this special time with their older friends.
