In the classroom F/1

Foundation/1 Learning Report


This week in F/1, we have been learning about writing recounts. A recount is when we write about something that has already happened. We can include details like who, what, where, when and why in our recounts. Last Thursday we made popcorn in the staffroom and then wrote about that experience.


In Reading we have been exploring letters and sounds this week and had lots of practise at listening for the sounds in each word. One of our focus letters has been the letter ‘I’. This letter can make a couple of different sounds within words and we have found these sounds in a range of words this week.


In Maths, we have been concentrating on counting and ordering numbers. We have played lots of hands on games and worked with lots of different materials to explore these ideas. We have built confidence in ‘subitising’ which means we can recognize a collection of numbers (such as those on a die) without having

to count each dot.
