In Literacy, we love reading our Sight Words each week with Miss Williams. We also love searching for sight words around our classroom. We can recognise lots of words and we are very clever at filling up our Sight Word Gardens with all the different words we can find. We search for them on our Sight Word Wall, on posters and on our class charts.
It is amazing how many words we can read and spell now!
In Numeracy, we have been practicing our addition skills and are learning about Number Fact Families. Recently, we have been focusing on ‘Friends of 10′. These are two numbers that add up to the number 10. We use number cards to play lots of different games that help us remember these facts.
In Year One we have been learning lots about numbers.
We have learnt that numbers have different values and that numbers are made up of Tens and Ones.
We love ordering numbers and finding out which ones are smaller or bigger.
We play games like ‘Teacher vs Kids’ and ‘Sheriff’ that help us practice these new skills.
During rotations we also play different number games that help us understand number value.
We cannot wait to teach our mums and dads how to play these games at Open Night.

It has been a great first few weeks in Year One Gold.
We have explored our new indoor and outdoor spaces, made new friends, met new teachers and loved wearing our Faction House shirts!
We’ve sung songs, learnt new prayers and rhymes, used our thinking brain to remember sounds and numbers and had lots of fun along the way.
Everyone is having a go and trying new things.
We cannot wait to share our learning journey with you!

In Religion, we have been talking about helping others by working.
We learnt that we can help our friends, family and creation in many different ways.
We have also learnt that Jesus worked in many ways to help others. He performed many miracles when he was on earth and these miracles helped a lot of different people.
We read two stories from the Bible that tell us how Jesus worked to help others.
These two stories were ‘Jesus Calms the Storm’ and ‘Jesus Feeds 5000′.
We re-told these stories in our own words and then created different art pieces to reflect them.
In Year One, we love learning about Jesus and how he always thought of others.

This term we are starting to learn about Measurement. We have learnt that the word ‘Length’ means how long something is.
We have also started using the language of ‘shorter’ and ‘longer’.
We are using informal items like pop sticks, counters and streamers to measure the length of certain objects around the classroom.
Miss Foong measured the length of our arm with a streamer. We then had to find objects that were the same length. We also found people in our class that had the same length streamer , a longer streamer and a shorter streamer than us.
Today, we traced around our hand and measured the length from the bottom to the top using counters.
We then put them in order from shortest to longest.
We can’t wait to start learning more about Measurement!
We hope you are ready for a busy but fun filled last term.
