Year 1 started a new topic in Art today, Rain and Sunrays. The children focused on making transient art and pattern work using a range of human-made and natural materials to create weather symbols.
Year 1 started a new topic this morning in Maths, length and height. The children used concrete resources as a unit of measurement to measure objects within the classroom. Some of the children used their developing maths skills to estimate and compare lengths.
This morning in maths Year 1 have been revising their knowledge of addition and subtraction to 20 ready for their gold task tomorrow. They have been completing speed tests to recall number facts quickly and also have had the chance to use a variety of resources to work out calculations. Great job Year 1!
Year 1 had an awesome afternoon at the library! Tracy, the library assistant, read the children a story and then they had a chance to browse the books.
Finally children completed a drawing activity linked to the story Tracy read to them. All children have selected a library book to read in school. The children’s excellent behaviour was commented on by the library staff.
We are so proud of you, year 1!
Yesterday, our year 1 children completed their maths work and an extension so enjoyed reading for pleasure in the class reading corner. We’re all so excited for our library visit tomorrow!
