Letters from the Crayons!

By 26th April 2018Year 1

This week the children have been learning about the features of letter writing such as where to put the address and who the letter is to. The children have written persuasive letters pretending to be a crayon who has quit and what Duncan needs to do to make things better. The children wrote letters in role as Duncan begging his crayons to return to him! We then edited our letters before publishing them in our best writing, to help us edit we made a checklist about what the best editing would be. Our list included things such as:

  • Checking our spellings are correct
  • Using the correct punctuation
  • Checking our sentences make sense
  • adding in appropriate describing words

At Home Task: Can you write a letter to someone?

In Maths the children have consolidated their learning from the previous term and have moved onto learning about numbers beyond 50. We have begun to look at counting first tens and then ones. We are learning to use different resources, including a number line, to help us count.

At Home Task: Can you divide a number into tens and ones at home?

In our Topic we have looked at Christian beliefs about God and written sentences about what God is to Christians. For History we have sorted objects into the past and present and for DT we have looked at wheels and axels. In PSHE we have made books about our development in our six years and what important milestones we have reached.
