The G1 Learning engagements from 18th – 22nd November 2019 below. 

UOI

Students compiled a list of things that we use on a daily basis, and what needs to be replaced in G1. They were then able to share ideas with a partner/class and record in words and pictures.

Maths

Students worked with a partner to count forwards and backwards from any starting point. Use hundreds chart for support and for peer assessment. Students will add their name to a “I can count forwards and backwards” once they have been peer and teacher assessed with 4 accurate answers in a row. (from any number)

Students are given one piece of a number chart jigsaw puzzle, place it on a mini whiteboard and add the rest of the numbers to 100, or at least the numbers around the puzzle piece. 

Practiced using ordinal numbers. Students drew bead chains and indicated the position of particular beads using ordinal numbers.

Students used Numicon/base tens to build a number. Then they drew the number in different ways e.g. pictures/tally marks, had to write the number in both number and words.

Children practiced counting in 2s/5s/10s  finding patterns

Reading

  • Raz kids
  • How to Teach your monster to read
  • Reading strategies Eagle eyes, Lips Fish
  • Read to Self

Continued learning about procedural writing by examining a range of procedures and identified common elements of their structure. They followed instructions to complete simple tasks. They wrote sentences to support each illustration and step.

ICT

This week the children continued their coding sessions. This week they learned to simplify their codes using a repeat function button.

The children thought about some things that they are good at and identified what they did to improve. They will continue to look at areas where they need to improve and come up with steps to help them achieve their goals. Goals may connect to many different learning areas and support the students to reflect on their mental and emotional development.

Grade 1 Weekly Update, Week 12

Dear G1 Parents,

Thank you for your support and patience last week, with us having to close G1 due to Influenza A.

For those of you who were able to attend the parent conferences last week. It was a great opportunity to meet with you and discuss your child’s progress with you. 

If would like to keep the same conference times for Thursday and Friday this week you can, or else if that does not suit you, please choose one of the other sessions on offer from the PDF attached in the email.

Please be sure to email your child’s class teacher your preferred time as soon as you can.

The G1 Learning engagements from 4th – 8th November 2019 below. 

Writing/UOI

In our new unit Sharing The PlanetChoices the writing genre will be procedural writing. This week the children had a go at using pictures and words to show the different steps in completing a simple task e.g. making a sandwich. It was a great opportunity to see what G1 already knew about procedural writing e.g. arrows, time connectives, boxes, numbers etc.

Students have started and will continue  to summarise the UOI in one sentence, given a sentence starter such as “If everyone fulfill their responsibilities at school, then ….”

Children started looking at goal setting. They thought about some things that they are good at and what they did to get better. They will continue to look at areas where they need to improve and come up with steps to achieve them.

Maths

  • Daily data
  • Odds and even number activities
  • Numicon to add and subtract numbers

Reading

  • Focus on retelling sequence of events
  • Making predictions
  • Comparing stories
  • Raz kids
  • How to Teach your monster to read

Global Read ALoud

We read our final selections for the 2019  Yuyi Morales Picture Book Study called The Little Night by Yuyi Morales and Grandfather Twilight by Barbara, Helen Berger. We will continue with this as we compare  the two stories using story mountains and venn diagrams.
