Family Learning Day!
In Year 1 we have done a lot of work on subtraction this week. We learned words like 'minus' and 'take away'. Some of us used counters to solve subtraction problems, other used the number line to work it out or check their answers.
In literacy we learned about singular- & plural nouns. In many cases nouns get an 's' or 'es' at the end. We matched singular and plural nouns, we wrote them and even did games about them. The learners had so much fun taking part in all these activities. We still need to keep practising to pronounce the -s and -es ending of plurals.
In literacy we have been learning how to write expanded noun phrases. We discovered our alien friend had left his suitcase behind and so we used the contents of it to learn about nouns, and sorted appropriate adjectives to describe them. We then used these words to create our own descriptive expanded noun phrases. We ended the week by using a heart warming video clip about a man on the moon, as a stimulus for writing. We wrote independently and tried to include all the skills we have been practising this learning block. Why not look at the video together. Maybe you could continue the story.
