Autumn 2 - 2021

This half term Year 1 have been learning all about Space. We have learnt about Yuri Gagarin, the history of space travel the order of the planets and designed and made a moon buggy. In Maths we have been looking at the place value of numbers to 20 and addition and subtraction within 20. In literacy we have been looking at the stories Beegu and One Snowy Night. We have written character descriptions, information texts and retold the story of One Snowy Night. The children did a fantastic job learning the words for our songs for the nativity and performed them confidently. In RE we have enjoyed learning about hopes and wishes and lighting out advent wreath to help us prepare for the arrival of Jesus' birthday.

Autumn 1 - 2021

Year 1 have had a super start to the year and have enjoyed a variety of activities. In Literacy, we have started looking at Traditional Tales and we have been writing and sequencing the story of The Three Little Pigs. In Maths, we have enjoyed using lots of practical materials to secure our understanding of the place value of numbers to 10 and we have been finding one more and one less. In our history sessions we have started learning about the history of Dinosaurs. We are really proud with how the class have settled back into school and are trying really hard in their work. Keep it up!
