It has been a remarkable week considering it is our first week back from the summer holidays. The children have settled in well and they’re thrilled about being in year one. This week has been about familiarizing ourselves with one another as well as sharing thoughts regarding what would constitute a great team; we also spoke about the significant people chosen as our class names and the role these people played. This lesson was aimed to motivate the children in their learning and how to achieve their dreams. In maths, we learnt about ordering numbers to 20 to refresh our mind on recognizing numbers to 20 and counting to and across 20, forwards and backwards. We are very optimistic that this academic year will be a successful one.
