Thank you for your help with reading - Miss Bishop is very impressed with how well Year 1 are getting on!
 
LITERACY:  We have been thinking carefully about owls and writing our own reports.  We have written about what good hunters they are and where they might live.  Writing is tricky, but we are trying very hard.
 
MATHS:  This week we have been thinking about the words longer and shorter and what they mean.  We used our feet to measure other objects in the classroom.  We then tried to order our shoes from shortest to longest.
 
SCIENCE:  We thought about our sense of touch and how useful it is.  We thought about what we should use our hands for and what we shouldn't.
 
This week we have been busy rehearsing for the Harvest Service and making Christmas cards, so topic will continue next week!
