1st class have been springing into step when it comes to their learning during the month of March. Lots of fun has been had when learning about a variety of topics at Shaheeda Zainab School. Take a ;look at what has been happening in our class.
1st class are consolidating their sense of numbers to 100 and have been working hard to develop mental strategies for learning addition and subtraction. Our favourite has to be using our doubles and doubles plus 1 to help us learn our tables. Please keep helping your child to learn their tables each night.
We are also learning about many other topics such as length. The children are enjoying learning how to estimate, measure and record lengths of different things using non-standard units such as cubes and lollipop sticks.
We are focusing on a different genre of writing every month. This month we are looking at Writing to Socialise.Texts used to socialise help children to maintain or enhance relationships with friends or family.
We have written a number of writing pieces such as postcards, thank you notes and text messages.
