Year 1 2021-2022
Year 1 have been learning about 'Creation' in God Matters. We all found lots of God's creation on our school field - we even found a bug!
In maths Year 1 have been sorting objects into groups based on colour and size. We have also been looking in more depth at our numbers to 10, and finding different ways to represent numbers, for example, we used straws, stars and teddies to represent the number 4!
The children walked into school one day to find a crime scene in the classroom! There were 3 porridge bowls - the big one was full or porridge, the medium one was full of porridge and the tiny one had no porridge left! Who could they have belonged to? We used our detective skills to try to find out who it was, and discovered it was Goldilocks! In Literacy we have been writing wanted posters for Goldilocks and we have been writing questions to ask the wolf.
As part of celebrating Diversity week, Year 1 have been reading the story 'Malala's Magic Pencil'. We have been talking about the differences between schools in England and schools in Pakistan. We were given sentences describing different ways of life and resources, and had to sort them into whether that sentence was to describe England or Pakistan. It made us realise how lucky we all are to live in such a free country. As part of Diversity week, we also looked into the lives and accomplishments of musicians: Beyonce and Jay Z! We listened to some of their music and in PE we even made dances to one of their songs! We also had a lovely circle time where we shared where come from, and celebrated this by talking about how special it is that we are all so different!
