This week the students in Y1.3 started working on the ‘Essential Agreements’ for our classroom. They thought about what they want the classroom to look like, sound like and feel like. The children said that they want it to look tidy and clean, sound quiet and calm and they want to feel happy when they’re there. We started to display our ideas on posters.
We launched into our first Unit of Inquiry and started thinking about different relationships. We looked at a photograph of a family as one example of the relationships people have. To support us further with our Unit work, please send in a photo of your family or you can email me a a photo and I will print it out. We will need the photos by Thursday 31st August. Thank you in advance for your support with this.
In Math this week we continued to explore different Math equipment including linking cubes and straws. The students have also started to work on their own counting books. We spent time practicing writing the numerals 0 and 1 and showing these quantities with cubes and pictures. We also did some data handling when we made a giant birthday graph showing when each person in Y1.3 has their birthday.
You can see a selection of our photos from this week here.
I am really looking forward to getting to know you better and to learning more about your child at the Parent Teacher Connection Meetings next Friday. Thank you to those of you who have already signed up for an appointment.
Have a wonderful weekend.
