This week we have been thinking about others in lots of different ways. In English we have learnt about captions and how to write them. We used the iPad to take photos of our friends and then wrote captions to go with the photos, the most entertaining of which was ‘[my friend] is jolly good fun’! I’ll leave you to ponder who wrote that about who!
We have ordered numbers to 5, 10, 20 and even to 100 and beyond and explained why we have ordered them in particular ways using the words greatest and smallest.
Finally we have rounded off the week learning about how Jewish families celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year. We cast away reasons to be sorry on fish which we threw into our (homamde) river and we baked delicious honey and cinnamon biscuits to sweeten the year ahead.
We also thought about the Big Question ‘Should you always forgive?’ As ever in year 1 I am astounded by the depth of thought such young children are capable of.
Here are some photos of our week.
