This week in English year 1 have spent time looking at homophones. They have enjoyed finding words that sound the same but have a different meaning and spelling, while trying to put them in to a sentence. The children have also continued using dictionaries to find definitions of different words while also having the opportunity to order the letters of the alphabet. We also looked at each letter of the alphabet closely to create our own class dictionary.
In Maths this week we revisited some fractions. Children looked at halves, quarters and three quarters of a given shape and a given number of objects.
In Topic we looked at another food group, protein. Children had the chance to work in groups to sort pictures of a hens life cycle. Children discussed the hens life cycle and the importance of having other foods that contain protein in our diet.
