In Religion this week Year 1 have been learning about where we and our family all come from. They learnt that on the Feast of the Epiphany, all nations are invited to know God. Year 1 looked at all the different nation flags from our class. We then looked at all the countries that have stars in their flags and reflected on what we can do to shine bright and build a better world. We then decorated a flag from our country for display.
The children were very enthusiastic about our new English text, ‘Where’s my Teddy?’ this week. They worked hard to gather adjectives to describe the characters and worked well to sequence the story into a story map which will help them write their story next week. Story ready by the author:
In Science Year 1 have been using their knowledge to identify and describe different fish, vertebrates, invertebrates and mammals. They worked very hard and next week they will be using their knowledge to classify and group the animals including naming herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.
Some sites to explore relating to science learning:
In Maths Year 1 have continued to work hard in understanding tens and ones to make two-digit numbers and have begun to add them together noticing what happens to the tens and ones. They have also been revising their double knowledge and used lots of resources to represent doubles. Next week they will be identifying odd and even numbers and representing them in different ways. Mathletics has been set to support these skills.
