It has been a lovely first week in Year One with our birthday topic. We have designed birthday cards for our friends, made cakes in the dough, read and listened to birthday stories and found out when all of our birthdays are. In our choose time we have explored the new classroom areas such as dough, sand, water, construction, writers corner and the laptops. The children have also used new skills and equipment and have enjoyed making pictures with the Numicon number rods and using the Purple Mash computer programme. A highlight of the week was a visit to the ‘dough disco’ where we exercise our hands and brains before writing by using a pot of playdough, a video clip and some ‘finger gym’.
