Students - Grade 1


Grade 1 Term 1, 2019 Overview

What a fantastic start to Term 1 and 2019 the Grade 1’s have had! We began this year by setting the tone for a productive, supportive and fun learning environment; in setting up our classroom expectations through our Code of Cooperation.



In Reading we looked at a range of strategies to help us understand parts of a word and stories, adding more meaning to what we read.



In Writing we focused on how to structure a sentence when writing recounts, narratives and procedures. As part of our procedural writing we wrote and followed instructions for making fairy bread and smiley face cookies. The final products were delicious!



In Maths we were practising our counting skills as well as our Place Value system and the different houses. We looked at comparing numbers and how to put them on number lines. Towards the end of term we were able to use our knowledge in real life situations when looking at money as well as time. 



Our ICT topic was ‘Our Digital Word- eSmart Cyber Safety Unit’ and we discussed how to appropriately use and communicate when using technology. This included identifying what/who is and is not real, as well as being aware of how to safely share our personal information.



Our Inquiry topic this term was ‘Staying Healthy in a Digital World’ which allowed the Grade 1’s to discover good habits and ways to keep our bodies and mind healthy. We were lucky enough to have a Healthy Active Day with the Grade 2’s where we took part in a range of outdoor activities. Other highlights included making the fruit kebabs as well as yoga with Miss Lucey.


Overall there has been a lot of hard work in the Grade 1 area. We look forward to coming back to Term 2 refreshed, recharged and ready to learn!
