What have we been up to lately in 1G?

During our work in Geography where we have been touring around the continents, we read an African story called Handa's surprise. In order to good encourage description, we tasted the fruits in the story and described them using words like sour, juicy, sweet, bitter, fresh, creamy, round etc.

In Maths we have been sorting and identifying coins and notes. We are really good at this now. Maybe at home, you could challenge your child to pay for items at the shops by selecting the correct change?

In ICT we have been instructing Beebots around maps using our postional and directional language. We have even designed some of our own maps with pictures on that we had to navigate the Beebots around.

In literacy we have been studying Julia Donaldson stories. We have found out that lots of her stories use rhyme and repetition which makes them easier to remember. We have been re-enacting some of her stories using drama and we wrote some questions we would like to ask some of the characters.
Who is your favourite Julia Donaldson character?
