Year 1 News

What happens in Winter?

The children have had another busy week in Year 1 and have all been working very hard. Thank you to everyone who attended the Phonics workshop on Thursday. If you were unable to attend but would like to watch it, it will be downloaded into your child's google classroom by Monday.

In English, the children have completed their star writes (children's independent writing) and have worked incredibly hard to remember everything they have learnt. For their star write they had to retell the story of 'The Monkey Puzzle' and they did a fantastic job.

In Maths, we have been looking at subtraction and how we can use a part whole model to help us find the answer. The children have thought about the different words they can use for subtractions and how they can use objects to help them work out the answers.

In Science, we have looked at the four seasons and the changes we have noticed as we prepare for Winter. The children enjoyed looking at the different clothes and sorting them into the different seasons. 

In Geography, we looked at the impact humans are having on the jungle and what we could do to help save the jungle. We looked at how it was affecting the animals that live there, the children spent time creating their own save the Orangutan posters.
