Year 1 Bulletin


In Literacy this week, we will continue using Handa’s Surprise as a basis for our work, placing events from the story into a story journey. We will then start to practise our acting skills by engaging in some role play, showing key events from the story in a group. We will then end the week by practising re-telling the story in our own words and  then construct sentences.


In Maths this week we are building on our existing knowledge of counting forwards and backwards, by exploring the numbers 11-20. We will look at the ways numbers can be written in numerals and words and practise spelling them correctly. We will then move onto representing numbers with both objects and pictures, and do lots of practical activities with our friends to help us with this. We will end the week by investigating how numbers are made up of tens and ones.

This week in Topic we are continuing our cultural exploration by focusing on the celebration of Eid. We will use I-pads to investigate how and why Eid is celebrated and complete our very own fact-file with interesting information. We will then practise our folding, cutting and creative skills by making our very own stained glass art.

If any parents would like to come in and share stories or photographs of Eid celebrations, please contact your class teacher to register your interest.
