1 less

In maths the children used objects to count one less. 

What happens to the number when we count 1 less? Is the answer bigger or smaller? Do you have to count forwards or backwards?

5 senses

In Science we have been learning about how we use our 5 senses. We explored them by looking at different objects, tasting different food, touching different types of materials, smelling things and listening to the sounds instruments make.  

Can you name the 5 senses? How do you use them?

Here are some songs about the 5 senses:

Climbing high!

In PE we have been using more apparatus to help develop our physical literacy.

The A-frames require lots of coordination of arms and legs to climb up and over safely as well as bravery as the blue frame is over 2m high!

Again the ladder balance requires arm and leg coordination working off the ground and at a different angle than we are normally at – some children have mastered this and just walk along the ladder!

This week Mr Connolly awarded 1F the Class PE Championship Cup as all the pupils had a PE kit and could join in the lesson fully.

Friday is the next PE lesson so remind your child to bring in their PE kit or keep it at school.
