We’ve had a busy few weeks in grade 1. Students are loving our hands on Language Experiences, learning together about chemical reactions, learning about themselves, their feelings and emotions and growing new plants from seeds.
Students have been learning about fractions, cutting playdough, pizzas and fruit into equal parts to make a half, one quarter even one eighth. We are always focussing on learning how to read the analogue clock to the hour and half past. It would be great if you could practise this at home too.
With the warmer weather coming some mornings, it meant grades can take their fluency buddy reading outside. Don’t forget to use the students log ins to read the decodables at home.
Welcome back to Term 4, we hope you all have had a lovely break and are ready for a big last term. This term we are looking at creating Language experiences through experiments, problem solving experiences, Procedural and Persuasive writing. In numeracy we are continuing to learn about Multiplication, division, addition, subtraction and fractions.
Here are some photos of our week 1.
The students in Grade One had a FANTASTIC day yesterday as we celebrated Book Week.
We enjoyed engaging in a variety of story and literacy-based activities, while also going on a numeracy based Where’s Wally? hunt.
Here are some photos from our day:
Hello Grade One Families, in 1B the students have been enjoying our hands-on and engaging numeracy activities that have been targeted at the development of different numeracy skills and understand.
In maths we have been learning all about ways we can measure and compare the length, capacity, and mass of various everyday objects. We have also been learning all about division and how share a collection of objects out into equal groups.
Below are some photos of the students working together to problem solve while learning about division.
After working in groups students used craft materials to create their own cookies. They then used their cookies as a hands-on resource while learning to share out a collection of objects into equal groups:
In Measurement and Geometry, we have been learning to measure and compare the length and capacity of different everyday objects. Here are some photos of some of the fun activities and experiences have been participating in.
