What have we been doing in Keller class?

Year One have got back into the full swing of learning, and we have had a great start to our new topics Street Dectectives: Our Local Area and What is it made of?

Last week, we started practising our sewing skills. The children found this activity lots of fun - if you have the opportunity to practise this at home that would be fantastic (we have been using plastic needles and big pieces of string). A big shout-out to our helpers who gave up some of their time to help with this activity!


In Jigsaw, we started looking at celebrating differences, and discussed how amazing it is that we are all different and unique. This linked in nicely with our anit-bullying week activities we completed on Monday. We made a beautiful class display around the theme Reach Out.

   "We are special and we are loved!"



All children have settled back in to their phonics and maths routines! Over the past couple of weeks, we have been looking at number bonds to 10, adding more and using number lines to help solve addition problems. This week, we will be starting to look at subtraction. Please keep in the green zone on doodle maths to help consolidate the learning taken place in school. 



This week, we will be taking a trip around the village looking at all the different human features we can find in our local area. I am looking forwards to sharing photos of our field trip with you next week. 

Christmas Show
A letter about costumes for the Christmas show was sent home this week. More details about how to book your ticket will be passed out soon. 

Costumes: Year 1 children will need brightly coloured hats, scarves and gloves. Please bring costumes in to school by Monday 5th December so we can join in with whole school dress rehearsals.  
Dates: Tuesday 13th December 9.30am and Wednesday 14th December 2pm and 6.30pm

As always, please keep on top of reading 3x a week at home. We are starting to see lots of Year One children complete their bronze reading award which is fantastic!
