Diamond Class 1 (Year 1)
Welcome to Diamond Class 1.
We have started off our English topic with the story 'The Three Little Pigs'. The children have been learning to retell the story using story language. They have also worked together to build a house for the pigs out of Lego bricks as they knew it was the strongest house.
The children have enjoyed our shared reading lessons. It is so lovely to hear them taking turns and supporting each other.
They have all been demonstrating good blending skills and recognition of common words.
The children have demonstrated excellent learning behaviours as they started back this half term.
We celebrated Black History week and the children learned about Wangari Maathai. They used the skills that they had been learning in Art to sketch a picture of her.
In English, the children worked together a group to create posters to persuade people to come to a King's Coronation. We have now begun reading from our new class text and our writing will be based around the book 'Supertato', which the children have really enjoyed so far.
We have also made snail sculptures in Art using salt dough. The children took great care and pride with their work.
