1FK have made a great start to the year. The children have settled in well to their new classroom, and we have had a very busy first term learning new things.
In our maths lesson we focused on ordering numbers from smallest to greatest and greatest to smallest. We enjoyed using pictorial representation to learn to order numbers from smallest to greatest. We also learnt to use the < and > symbols to compare numbers within 20.
In our English lessons, we have been focusing on writing instructions; we looked at features of instructions and learned about imperative verbs in a set of instructions. We watched a video about how to make a peg car and wrote our own set of instructions. We also had lot of fun designing our own peg car, then we followed our instructions to make our own peg car.
We ended our peg car project by evaluating our cars.
