What have Year 1 been up to?

This week Year 1 have investigated a variety of 2D and 3D shapes. 

Maths

 

After a festive Christmas break the children came back to school refreshed and read to learn.

This week Year 1 have learnt all about odd and even numbers. The children have been using a range of mathematical skills to help them to identify odd and even numbers.

This week the children have been busy preparing for Christmas. Years 1 and 2 started the week by performing their Christmas play 'I'm Gonna Shine' to the school and their families. The children were amazing and really did shine! Year 1 were then busy making their Christingles for the church service. They learnt all about the Christingles  and what each part represents. Year 1 were wonderful in the church service where they all sounded like angels signing their wise men song. 

After a busy week the children really deserve their Christmas break.

I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and I look forward to seeing all of the children back in the New Year.

Science

Year One have been learning about seasonal changes. They have been going on weekly walks around the school to investigate what has been changing. The children had noted that recently all the leaves have fallen off of the trees, they also had noticed that they all need to wear hats and gloves when going outside. The children concluded that the season is now changing to winter and we all know what exciting event happens in winter…. CHRISTMAS! Year One are very excited!

Maths

 

Year 1 have been enjoying a variety of maths lessons. The children have particularly liked the practical lessons where they have been able to work as a team to complete challenges. Year 1 have been focusing on how a number can be represented in different ways; bar models, whole part model, cherry tree model, pictures and number sentences.

Out Door Learning 

During out door learning this week the children looked at different animal bodies. They looked at similarities and differences between animals. The children then worked in groups in our forest school area to create a collage of different animals.
