Year 1 - India
Welcome to India class. We are in Year 1 and our teacher is Mrs Lilley. Mrs Long and Mrs Riccobena are our Teaching Assistant. We’ll be learning through lots of exciting topics!
On Thursday 8th November India class had their reading café. We read Hungry Hen by Richard Waring. We enjoyed the story, especially the surprise at the end! Lots of grown-ups came and we showed them how to add sound buttons to words to help us blend and read. We made a collage of the hen in the story and ended our café with a hen parade around the hall. Thanks to everybody that attended.
This week in science we have been thinking about different animals. We sorted animals into groups: mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and birds. We thought about what features the the animals had and how these can help us group the animals. We asked questions: Do they lay eggs? Have they got Feathers? Do they live in water?
We are reading traditional tales in our class at the moment. Last week we listened to the story of the Little Red Hen and had fun joining in with the reading. We have created a collage of the hen to put on our traditional stories display and then we helped the Little Red Hen to bake some bread. It smelt delicious and tasted just as good. We took our bread home in some bags that we decorated.
