Year 1 Spring 2 2018 Summary

Blue and Green classes have had a really busy half term. We have learned about materials in Science and found out what materials different objects are made from.

During book week we wrote letters to Julia Donaldson and walked to the postbox to post them off to her! We can’t wait to see her replies!

We have been learning about castles too. We know the names of different parts of the castle and we know about some of the people who lived there. We really enjoyed learning about King Henry VIII and finding out about his six wives.

In Art we have been learning about Andy Goldsworthy. He made interesting sculptures using natural materials. We had a go at making some of our own sculptures too.

In maths we have been busy measuring! We have used all sorts of objects to measure and compare length, mass and capacity. We have used rulers and metre sticks to measure length and height of some objects and we have started to read scales to measure volume! It was fun measuring the ingredients to make porridge for the three bears!

Children’s comments about their learning

“The windows are made of glass”

“The book is heavier than the glue stick”

“The table is more than 50cm long”

“The water around a castle is called a moat”

As part of R.E. Year 1 celebrated Easter with a party.
The Easter bunny had hidden lots of eggs around the hall for use to find, we used these to find number bonds to 10 and 20.  Our P.E, unit of work this half term was jumping jacks.  We put these skills into practice, presenting to be rabbits and took part in team games.
This was all concluded with an Easter bonnet parade and eating our Easter nests.
It was all great fun.
