LITERACY:  This week we have been developing our comprehension skills.  We have been trying to predict what might happen next by using the events in the story.
NUMERACY:  It has been a hard week!  We have been thinking about the numbers from 11 to 19 and which numbers we can add together.  We have shown real endurance and tried very hard not to give up when it got tricky.
TOPIC:  We are continuing to think about animals and have used the terms carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.  We enjoyed working out which animals ate what!
Year 1 also took part in a Gymnastics festival at the Dolphin Centre on Wednesday.  We got to take part in lots of activities and to try the different types of apparatus, including beams and bars.  Our favourite was the trampette!  We were tired at the end of the event but had a wonderful time.
