What a wonderful start to the year we’ve had in 1J! It was fantastic to see the enthusiasm and excitement all the children had for the year ahead.
We are very busy in the classroom. In Daily 5 we are working hard on our reading, writing, and spelling skills. We have started our inquiry unit where we are exploring how we can use and care for the beach.
In Maths we are getting sweaty brains tackling a lot of rich mathematical experiences, using our problem –solving, teamwork, and creative and critical thinking skills.
We have been working with Mrs Oswald on the computers learning how to log in and the basic functions of Microsoft Word. In Art, we are creating some amazing artworks with Mrs Drinkwater to fit in with our beach theme.
In PDHPE we have been learning about the Zones of regulation and our capabilities framework at school. We have also been getting outdoors and working on Fundamental movement skills in PE and Sport time.
1J have loved the opportunities during guided playtime, exploring and developing their skills through, chalk art, drumming, dance, cricket, and soccer skills, the parachute, and handball.
What a fantastic start to the year the amazing kids of 1J have had.
