1FK have made a great start to the year. The children have adapted to their new classroom and we have had a very busy first term learning new things.
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.
During our DT lesson, we have been learning about wheels and axels. We had lot of fun designing our peg car, then following our instructions to made our own peg car.
In our maths lesson we have been learning about ordinal numbers. We discussed what first and last mean to enable us to see numbers as positional. For our activity, we had had lots of fun, racing our peg car in groups at our tables to enable us to practice the use of the new mathematical language in sentences.
We ended our peg car project by evaluating our cars.
