Hedgehog class blog – Week 1 25.9.20

Wow! I can’t believe how quick this week has flown by! We have had a great week. They have all been so grown up, you would not know it was their first week in Year 1. 

This week in Maths we have been learning about how to sort objects in maths. We have also been subitizing, where the children tell me the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. We encourage them to look for patterns or facts such as “3 red and 3 yellow that’s 6!”

In English we have been looking at rhyme. We read the story Tree. We discussed the different seasons and picked out the rhyming words. We also discussed adjectives to describe the different seasons.

In phonics we are recapping sounds previously learnt.

On move up day the children learnt that hedgehogs hibernate for the winter. In topic we looked at hibernation a little bit more and learnt which other animals hibernate too. We also discussed that some animals migrate to hotter countries. We have learnt lots about the seasons this week and the children have enjoyed telling me their favourite season and why.

The children had a great afternoon in the forest learning how to use different tools. 

In PE the children recapped Gymnastic positions such as tuck, pike and straddle.  

We look forward to another fun filled week next week!
