In our first hockey lesson this week, we  practised holding the stick correctly whilst dribbling.

Practical Spelling

Today we used the playground to carry out a practical spelling activity looking at words with ‘ough’ letter strings and the different sounds represented by these.

Well done to all of these children who were in the stripy book this week.

We are very proud of them.



Maths Day

Today we have had Maths Day. The children came to school dressed as different occupations that use maths or a rockstar. We spent a little bit of time talking about how we wold use maths for certain jobs. The children had some really good ideas for this.
Then the children had lots of fun ordering numbers to 100 counting on and back in 1s. We completed number lines with missing numbers counting forwards and backwards using their knowledge of place value.
We also practiced counting sets of objects by grouping in tens.

A Day At The Beach

As part of our English work Year 1 went on a visit to Hindsford’s very own beach. The children had a brilliant time paddling int he sea, building sandcastles and playing beach games. We will be writing a recount of our day later this week.

Guy Fawkes

In Year 1 the children met Guy Fawkes to ask him the questions that they had made up in their History lesson.
