If you could go anywhere where would you go?
How many countries have you been to?
Which places are the most interesting to you - beaches, mountains, lakes, cities or the countryside?
We have been very internationally minded this week and learnt a lot about the different games we have here in Cambodia. It was so much fun to play different Khmer games! We also discovered some similarities between these Khmer games and games from our home countries. What games do you like to play?
In LITERACY we continued learning about alliteration. This week we had to look for alliteration in poems. This was quite tricky as maybe not all sentences in a poem have alliteration. We worked together in partners or teams to help us come up with words that start with the same sound. Next up, we will learn to describe nouns using adjectives. This time, the adjectives and nouns need to start with the same sound as well!
In MATHS Year 1 solved a variety of addition based word problems. We highlighted important information and used new vocabulary to help answer the questions e.g. altogether, total and how many?
This week in LITERACY we have been learning about suffixes and prefixes. A suffix is added to the end of a word whereas a prefix is attached to the beginning. We practised using less and ful at the end of a root word:
care + ful = careful
care + less = careless
We also practised adding un and dis to the beginning of a root word:
un + happy = unhappy
dis + appear = disappear
These often change the meaning of the root word. It was fun trying to use these words in sentences.
In MATHS this week we have been looking at the relationship between multiplication and division. We now understand what inverse means and we know that our knowledge of times table can help us solve division problems.
Come and join MP1 next week as we share all our exciting learning with you.
MP1 would like to invite parents and carers to come and listen to our learning on The Magic Toy Maker. Our Exit Point will start on Tuesday 13th February 7:45 - 8:45am.
We look forward to seeing you.
