Flying High with Gordon in Year 1!

We have been flying high in the sky in Paris and Madrid classes this week.


This week we have been hooked on our new story, ‘Gordon’s Great Escape’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. We started our week by sending our very own Gordon of on an adventure of his own. Children have been learning how to spell key words from the story and using their sentence making skills to write up part of the story.


This week in Maths, children have been developing their understanding and skills in subtraction. We have use practical equipment and songs to use key vocabulary in a context, supporting children’s understanding further. Towards the end of the week, children started to record their working out using pictures in their books, some children even got challenge into using number lines.


We have started the very exciting journey towards our Christmas nativity play during our afternoons this week.
