Y1 Summer 1 Homework

This half term our focus was animals in our Paws, claws and whiskers topic. We looked at different categories of animals and sorted them into groups. We also went on a butterfly hunt to learn about camouflage, and even did some animal art looking at the different patterns we can find on animals.

In literacy we were leaning all about Beegu, a little alien who had crash landed on earth. The class loved our hotseat session interviewing 'Beegu' and had lots of wonderful and interesting questions.

Our maths lessons were focused on learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and using these in multiplication and division problem solving.

Last half term in Year 1 we had fun learning about how to measure items- the pupils really enjoyed being sent to explore different items in the classroom during this hands on lesson.

The focus of our science lessons was materials- here are 4 of our scientists discussing what the MUGA is made from.
