Coten End Primary School

Week ending 6th January

Happy New Year! We hope you all managed to have a restful Christmas and a good break with your families. Despite having a short week at school, we have managed to fit in lots in Year 1 in three days!

In Maths, we have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have been looking at the patterns these numbers make on a 100 square and even tried counting backwards! We have started our brand new learning theme - Wombat Stew. This topic is all about Australia! We have all created our new topic book covers using a traditional dot painting technique. We will be learning more about this style in our Art lessons next week. We also started our 'Aboriginal Dance' lessons which really enjoyed. We will have these weekly this half term and continue to build on our dance skills and learn about the importance of this traditional dance.

In Science, we made a booklet about 'How to Care for a Pet'. We were lucky enough to have a visit from Bessie - our school dog (and Mrs Sheepy's pet!). She told us all about how she cares for Bessie and we were all very impressed with how well Bessie behaved in our lessons.
