    This week the children have been reading Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs.  They have been creating story maps in English to help them with their Star Writes next week and practised writing key vocabulary.  In Maths they have been looking at comparing numbers using 'greater than' and 'less than' to prepare them for next week's lessons on ordering numbers.

    In Science we have been looking at the similarities and differences between animals and grouping them by these criteria. In RE we have been looking at different way to show that we are grateful and some of the children have created cards fro their friends of family as a way of showing thanks.

    In PSHE we have been looking at how we can live a balanced life and in History we have been researching Mary Anning and learning about why she is important.

    What is RRS?

    The children have all settled really well into Year 1 and have had a great start to the year.  We have been learning our school rules: RRS - Ready, Respectful and Safe.  We have then used this to create our own class rules.

    We have been learning about the zones of regulation and how to identify how we are feeling.  We have learnt that it is okay to feel different emotions and have begun looking at what we can do to make us feel better.

    In Maths we have recapped sorting objects and counting numbers to 10.
