This week in Year 1 we learnt about contractions and connectives and applied these to joining sentences from the story ‘I live in Tokyo’ by Mari Takabayashi. As we had focused on Japan’s capital city, we then moved on to exploring and identifying the United Kingdom’s four countries and capital cities and the surrounding seas.
In maths we carried on with our focus on multiplication and arrays. Identifying how to create equations from arrays and show these pictorially, with repeated addition and using the language ‘lots of’ and ‘groups of’.
In task time, children presented their Japanese facts in groups on a pretend travel show. Children also used their ICT skills to edit and create a poster for our Eco-Warrior program.
