Year 1 worked marvellously together in their Geography lesson, in order to put a map of the UK back together. We used this to help us to learn the capital cities and countries in the UK.
There are a few children in Year 1 who really love to write, and independently create wonderful little books for the class to enjoy.
We have been reading Percy the Park Keeper in class. Today we have been putting events in the story into the correct order. We worked in groups to organise the pictures.
Year 1 successfully read and followed some instructions today. We've also been learning all about 'bossy words'!
Year 1 enjoyed the sunshine this morning as we took our Science lesson outside to hunt for plants! There were some beautiful observation drawings produced.
Today we got into pairs and planted seeds in pots. I wonder which team's seed will grow most successfully?
We had a lovely visit to the Cathedral. We went up on the altar and looked at the tabernacle. We asked lots of really good questions!
Year 1 have been learning the parts of plants. The children took turns in looking at the diagram, then returning to their group to draw what they could remember. It was interesting to see what the children came up with!
Year 1 have been reading Peter Rabbit, and today we role-played and took turns being Peter. We asked him questions like, "Why did you go into Mr McGregor's garden?" Lily was an excellent Peter Rabbit!
Y1 had a lovely trip to the Lakeland Oasis today. We saw so many different animals and we got to hold a stick insect, which was very tickly!
For the last couple of weeks we have been working hard on Place Value in year 1. This means identifying how many tens and ones are in a number. This week we are learning about money.
This half term we are reading 'Lost and Found' - a story about a penguin who gets lost, and a boy finds him! I wonder if the penguin will find his way home?
