Term 3 - Weather Watch
Term 2 - Fire, Fire!
‘Fire, Fire!'. We have been exploring the events of the past. We began learning all about Guy Fawkes, and The Great Fire of London. We even got the chance to build our own Houses in our Design and Technology lessons to recreate the events of The Great Fire of London.
In Maths we have been focusing on shape. Learning all about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We even got to go on a shape hunt around the school! We have also been practising our counting, and trying hard to learn how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s. Although we found it quite tricky we were able to keep persevering!
During our English lessons this term we have been exploring one of our Power of Reading texts 'The lonely Beast'. We were able to write some amazing character profiles and poems. Our book inspired us to innovate the story to create our own beasts, using our super adjectives to describe them.
All of Year 1 made Miss Keech and Miss Dennis extremely proud with all their hard work towards their performance of the Christmas Nativity.
Term 1 - Incredible Me
Our Topic this term is ‘Incredible Me!’ We have been learning all about ourselves and the human body. We have enjoyed investigating our own family history and learning how to stay healthy.
In Maths we have been focusing on place value, counting, adding and subtracting. We have been practicing counting forwards, backwards and also using different resources to support our learning.
During our English lessons we have been exploring different types of texts. We have particularly enjoyed reading 'We're Going On a Bear Hunt' and writing our own poems for World Poetry Day!
Miss Keech and Miss Dennis are very proud of the Children's learning this term and how well they have settled into Year One. Well done everyone!
