Active Maths in Year 1!

We have been practising our addition and subtraction skills with different resources this week. We have evidenced the school value of Cooperation and worked really well as a team. 

We used the big shapes and the bean bag target to practise subtraction. We were subtracting from 20, so we selected a shape, counted the corners and sides and took that number away from 20. We took it in turns to throw the bean bag onto the target, identified the number it landed on and took that number away from 20.

We also made up their own addition and subtraction sentences using the cones and giant Numicon. We had lots of fun and challenged ourselves with higher numbers.

Enjoying the Sun in the Garden

The Children in Year One and Year Two have been enjoying the lovely weather and spending lots of time in the garden. We have lots of seeds growing in our potting shed that we are keeping a close eye on and watering daily. We planted some cucumber and radish seeds this week too. We can't wait to return after the Easter Holidays to see if our seeds are shooting!

Today is World Autism Awareness Day

This year the theme is: Challenges and Opportunities in a Post-Pandemic World.

World Autism Awareness Day was established in 2007 by the United Nations General Assembly.

The aim is to increase awareness about autism, to help people develop knowledge about autism and deliver information on how important it is to detect an early diagnosis.

Autism affects both boys and girls, of all races, in all countries around the world. It is immensely common, which is why raising awareness of autism is essential.

Ways everyone can celebrate- 

  • Truly reflect to see how you can support people with autism in a way that changes lives.
  • Develop your understanding of autism and help to spread awareness in your communities.
  • Support a family you know whose child has autism.
  • Getting involved in events run by autism communities.
  • Listening to people you know who have autism about what it means to them.
  • Engaging in discussions with your children so that they become aware and accepting of their similarities and differences.
One way to develop your own knowledge and understanding is to watch these videos from young people explaining what it can be like to be autistic.
