Yesterday was History Day in Year 1 and we spent the day learning about shops and what they were like in the past. In the morning we learnt about the different shops that people use to visit rather than going to a large supermarket. We learnt some new words such as Drapers, Grocers and Hardware.
In the afternoon we had a visit from Mr and Mrs Gudgin. They own Coddenham Stores and their family have owned the shop since 1922! They bought in lots of exciting artefacts to show us and they told us all about life in the village shop. Open up the document below to see some photos of their visit.
Thank you to everyone who came along to our Christmas Craft morning. We had a lovely time making decorations ready to sell at the Christmas Fair on the 8th of December.
You will be able to purchase your child's decorations at the fair and any profit made will go directly to our own class.
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been become much more independent in our writing. Last week we learnt about the poem The Owl and the Pussy Cat and we re-wrote it as a story. Some of us even imagined that we were the owl and wrote in the first person.
Christmas Craft Morning
Next Friday (24th) is our Christmas Craft Morning. This is an opportunity for you to come in and make some Christmas crafts with your child. These crafts will then be sold at the Christmas Fair on Friday the 8th of December.
On Monday 18th December, Year 1 will be holding a Christmas Singing afternoon in each of our classrooms. This event begins at 2.45pm and we will send out more information nearer the time.
In Maths this week we have been learning how to use number lines to help us with our addition and subtraction. We have also had a go at using empty number lines which has really challenged us but we have all learnt so much.
This week we have also tried some classroom yoga. It was based on the story of Moana. We had so much fun! Look at the different poses that we were doing. Mrs Garland has added the YouTube link below so you can try the yoga at home.
