Did you know that stories such as fairy-tales and fables can teach us lessons too? This week in SOCIETY MP1 have been learning about different fairy-tales and the lessons they teach us. Fairy-tales are full of heroes and villains, good and bad characters. We can learn a lot about how to ...or how not to behave. Some characters are really good at showing the personal goals. What story characters can you think of that show some of our personal goals?
In LITERACY the children have heard the story of The Little Red Hen. As Mr. Phil the storyteller did so much storytelling with MP1 last week, we wanted to learn more about stories and storytelling this week.
We listened to the story of the Little Red Hen and we acted out the story in our teams. We also had a try at retelling the story. We talked about the setting of the story and what the characters are saying. Let’s see how Year 1 will write up our stories of the Little Red Hen next week!
in MATHS Year 1 have continued learning our 2 x table. We have also answered 2x table themed word problems using cubes to help arrive at the correct answer.
We started learning about fables in LITERACY this week. We used lots of our story telling skills from Mr. Phil to help us retell the fables. We also acted them out using freeze frames and role-play to really make the characters come to life. This also really helped us gain a greater understanding of what the characters were like in the different stories.
In MATHS this week we have been learning about money. We have looked at different currencies around the world and have used different combinations of dollars to pay for various items. We have also learnt how to shop in the sales working out half of the price if we know the full price and the full price if we know the half price.
