Dear Grade 1 Parents,
The G1 Learning engagements from 13th – 17th January 2020 below.
This week in ICT, G1B students used Padlet for the first time to connect with another G1 class Allegheny K-5 school, Pennsylvania US. We sent pictures of ourselves, our names and one thing we enjoyed doing. In the coming weeks we will get to know more about our new pen pals.
This week the children continued to consolidate focusing on writing numbers in the following ways.
standard form – 47
expanded form – 40 + 7 = 47,
base 10 drawings IIII xxxxxxx
word form – forty seven.
The children also worked on a fairy cake make problem where they had to show the different number of toppings using their cardinal numbers. Please checkout your child’s Seesaw to see an online example that they should be able to explain to you.
Unit and Literacy
This week we reflected on our Choices unit and thought long and hard about the central idea – People’s actions reflect awareness of community responsibility.
The children were asked the following question.
How can they help within the school community in regards to responsible use of resources – food, playground resources, classroom resources, items from home that they could be added to the red bin donations and recycle bins (paper, plastic).
The children had to come up with a pledge they wanted to make. They had to go further and explain why the pledge was important for them to take such action?
Dear G1 Parents,
This coming Friday (Fri.24-Jan.-2020) is EY Sports day, therefore swimming classes for G1B and G1Cwill need to be rescheduled as follows.
As for G1A, there is no change but likely to be late by 5-10 minutes.

Please remind your child that they will need their swimming kit on the days above this week.
Thank you for all of your support during the G1 Sports Day. The children had a great time and I’m sure they slept really well last Friday!
