Our Local Area
Year 1 have had a fantastic and very busy term! We have been learning all about ‘Our Local Area’. The children have learnt about different types of housing and the different jobs that people do in Thornton. In Maths we have been counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s, doubling numbers and halving shapes, objects and numbers. In English we wrote a Non-Chronological Report about hibernating animals and wrote a poem called ‘When I’m by Myself’. We have also been creating and interpreting pictograms in Computing! In Science we have observed the changing weather across Spring and learnt about how the day length varies throughout the year. The class have also really enjoyed their Friday afternoon art lessons where they have learnt about different sketching techniques. Well done Year 1!
Year 1 have had an amazing start to their year. In English we have been developing our vocabulary and use of adjectives through drama and group activities. In Maths the children have been developing their understanding of number using different methods such as part-whole models and tens frames. In Science we have looked at different life cycles and discussed their similarities and differences. The class have enjoyed their PE lessons with Mr Thomas, practising their basketball skills and playing invasion games. We also had a rather wet but fun trip to the woods followed by some hot chocolate to warm us up! We then used this experience to write a recount about our trip.
Year 1 have got off to a fantastic start and have been learning about ‘Our School’. We have been learning about how a compass works and making an aerial plan of our classroom. We have been reading the story ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers and thinking about adjectives we can use in sentences. We have been getting outside and using drama to pretend we are the boy in the story preparing for his exciting flight adventure! The class have been really enjoying their PE sessions where they have been playing basketball and learning gymnastic skills.
